Matisse Thybulle played just 13 minutes but still snagged two steals and three blocks, though he added only two rebounds, one assist and one 3-pointer on Tuesday vs. the Cavs.
The legend continues for Thybulle. He's just not getting enough minutes or stats outside of steals and blocks to be worth rostering right now. But keep him in mind when you need a defensive-stat streamer.

Shake Milton, who has been rehabbing due to a left knee bone bruise, is considered doubtful to face the Cavs on Tuesday.
Milton will be examined on Tuesday morning, but it appears that he will sit out. Matisse Thybulle could have a bit less value when Milton is back in the rotation.

Matisse Thybulle was limited to three minutes in a win over the Hornets on Sunday.
Thybulle's role has been decreasing as the season progresses, as his last three games he has seen three, 13 and five minutes. He had value in deeper leagues for defensive stats, but that value is diminished as he does not seem to have a role in the rotation. Leave him on the wire.

Matisse Thybulee scored two points on 1-of-3 shooting on Monday with zero defensive stats.
Thybulle had four fouls in five minutes, but was producing defensive numbers at a historic rate. He's a strong hold as this was his first game without recording a defensive stat.

Matisse Thybulle had another outstanding defensive performance on Wednesday, picking up four more steals as well as two blocks in 21 minutes off the bench.
His three assists and a 3-pointer are just gravy. This kind of defensive production is exceedingly rare, especially from a wing position, so make sure he's not available in any of your leagues.

Zhaire Smith was sent down to the Sixers' G League affiliate, the Delaware Blue Coats, on Wednesday.
Smith has not been able to crack the rotation so far this season after some speculation that he could be a primary back-up at the guard position. He may still have a shot at getting some minutes in the rotation if Matisse Thybulle, James Ennis and Furkan Korkmaz have bad performances or get injured. For now, he can be ignored in fantasy leagues outside of deep dynasty leagues.

Shake Milton (left knee bone bruise) is out for at least the next four games and will be re-evaluated when the Sixers return from their road trip on November 9th.
With Milton out, there are a few extra minutes to go around off the bench. Only Matisse Thybulle is on the fantasy radar among them, and any additional minutes is a major plus for the defensive dynamo.

Matisse Thybulle's legend grew on Monday as he nabbed eight cash counters (four steals, two blocks and two 3-pointers) in addition to eight points and three rebounds in 20 minutes vs. the Hawks.
That'll keep those that drafted Thybulle drooling. Depending on your league size, the decision to start him can be tough. However, he's now averaging 2.7 steals, 1.3 blocks and 1.0 treys, and one can assume that he'll continue to improve and possibly carve out more minutes. You'll probably want to get him in your lineups or trade him to some that's drooling more than you.

Matisse Thybulle fails to register any points in Saturday's win over the Pistons.
Thybulle followed up a balanced game on Wednesday with a whimper tonight. Playing 24 minutes he registered two rebounds, two assists, two steals and four turnovers. Offensively the Sixers have a lot of options though Thybulle could have been a bit more aggressive. The spot start was nice but it is worth noting how his playing time will adjust for the Sixer's next game.

Matisse Thybulle will Start in place of Joel Embiid during Saturday's game versus the Pistons.
Thybulle could pile on defensive numbers when given the opportunity and may be worth streaming or adding if you are chasing them in your matchup.

Matisse Thybulle did a bit of everything on Wednesday, registering three points, one rebound, one assist, one trey, two steals and two blocks in 22 minutes.
Thybulle's line is eye-opening because of those five cash counters. The fact that he led all Sixer reserves with his 22 minutes bodes well for his spot in the rotation. He's more of a deep-league guy for now but is worth a speculative add in standard leagues if you have an underperforming guy on your bench.

Brett Brown suggested rookie Matisse Thybulle could be the first player off the bench for the Sixers this season.
When asked whether he'd be comfortable having the rookie in the opening night rotation, Brown said that that's the direction he's leaning in. Given Philadelphia's lack of depth, having a versatile player like Thybulle on the wings makes sense in Brown's second unit. Thybulle would only need minutes in the mid-20s to hit value for fantasy managers, so he's quickly become a name to target in the back end fantasy drafts with this news for his upside in the defensive categories alone.

Matisse Thybulle racked up four more steals and two more blocks in a win over the Pistons on Tuesday.
Thybulle chipped in seven points (2-for-5 FGs, 2-for-2 FTs), six rebounds, one assist and one triple in his 25 minutes. Most fantasy players know what Thybulle can bring. It's the insane steals and blocks numbers that he's brought with him from college. He should be in the rotation this season, but he may not get enough run to be rostered in standard leagues quite yet.

Joel Embiid will join Josh Richardson, Matisse Thybulle, Furkan Korkmaz and Tobias Harris in the starting lineup for Tuesday's preseason game against the Pistons.
It's unknown how much run Embiid will get in this one, but on a light DFS slate, he's one of the few stars suiting up.

Matisse Thybulle had a solid performance on Sunday as he put up 10 points on 3-of-7 shooting in 17 minutes of action.
Thybulle is known for his defensive prowess, so it is also important to note that he had one steal and one block. He should be used as a defensive specialist and have a decent role in the Sixers' rotation this season. However, he is not much more than a steals specialist in deeper leagues.
