  • Josh Richardson
    SF, Philadelphia Sixers

    Josh Richardson (concussion) was listed as out on Thursday vs. the Kings.

    Richardson suffered the concussion on Sunday and will miss his second game in a row with the injury. Glenn Robinson III scored 25 points on Tuesday in 31 minutes off the bench and is worth a look as a streamer for points until Richardson returns. Matisse Thybulle started on Tuesday and is a streamer for steals and blocks until Richardson returns.

  • Glenn Robinson III
    SG, Philadelphia Sixers

    Glenn Robinson III erupted for 25 points on 10-of-15 shooting with four rebounds, one assist, one steal and three 3-pointers in 31 minutes, the most he's played on the Sixers by a long shot, in a road loss to Lakers on Tuesday.

    Some signs of life from Robinson, who had been little more than an afterthought so far in his Sixers career. With three starters out with injuries, there's a void that Robinson could fill, but he's a risky addition at this point. It would be nice to see it happen at least once more. Matisse Thybulle got the start tonight, but he was only able to muster two points, four rebounds, three assists and one steal in 18 minutes.

  • Joel Embiid
    C, Philadelphia Sixers

    Joel Embiid (left shoulder sprain) will not return on Wednesday vs. the Cavs.

    Embiid collided with Ante Zizic early in the first half and left for the locker room. He returned to the bench briefly in the second quarter but returned back to the locker room. Al Horford will benefit the most and should post top-75 value with Embiid out. Josh Richardson and Tobias Harris will also see a boost with Ben Simmons (back) out at least two weeks. Matisse Thybulle and Shake Milton could also have streaming value with Embiid and Simmons out but are probably better for 14-team leagues rather than standard leagues.

    Joel Embiid (neck stiffness) out for the rest of the game Friday vs. the Grizzlies.

    Rookie defensive stud Matisse Thybulle started the second half for Embiid. Check back after the game for an update on his status. Embiid ended his night after 16 minutes of floor time.

    SG-SF, Philadelphia Sixers

    Matisse Thybulle scored three points with two rebounds and two steals on Thursday.

    Thybulle continues to start, but the playing time is inconsistent. The Sixers have trouble fielding lineups that are potent on both ends of the floor so it's hard for us to pin down when Thybulle will pop off on the defensive end. He's a steals and blocks streamer.

  • Joel Embiid
    C, Philadelphia Sixers

    Joel Embiid (left hand surgery) has been cleared to make his return to the lineup for Tuesday's game against the Warriors.

    Embiid's return is huge for the Sixers and fantasy owners alike. The Sixers have been playing without both Embiid and Josh Richardson (groin) and will have to make some changes to their starting lineup. Matisse Thybulle, Furkan Korkmaz and Shake Milton will lose some minutes with Embiid back.

    Matisse Thybulle swiped five steals on Saturday and added six points, one block and two triples in 36 minutes.

    If you're rostering Thybulle, it is for defensive stats like this. Thybulle has increased value in the short-term with Josh Richardson and Joel Embiid sidelined and he's averaging 2.6 steals and 1.6 blocks in 30.8 minutes the past seven games.

  • Josh Richardson
    SF, Philadelphia Sixers

    Josh Richardson left Wednesday's game with a left hamstring injury and will not return.

    Richardson finished without recording a stat in four minutes. Matisse Thybulle has had late-round value as a defensive specialist with Joel Embiid sidelined. Thybulle should see increased value with Richardson out and Furkan Korkmaz is worth a look in standard leagues as a points and threes specialist with Richardson out.

  • Josh Richardson
    SF, Philadelphia Sixers

    Josh Richardson headed to the locker room on Saturday after injuring his left hamstring.

    Richardson was chasing a steal and pulled up grabbing his left hamstring before heading to the locker room. If Richardson misses time Furkan Korkmaz would likely slide into more minutes and Matisse Thybulle would get a boost in value. Korkmaz could have standard-league value with points and threes with Richardson out. Matisse Thybulle has been a late-round fantasy value as a defensive specialist and that should continue until Joel Embiid returns.

    SG-SF, Philadelphia Sixers

    Thybulle started on Friday and scored seven points to go with four rebounds, two steals and three blocks in 36 minutes.

    The defensive stats are the bread and butter of Thybulle's fantasy game. He has at least one steal and one block in his past four games and is averaging 1.5 steals and 2.3 blocks over that stretch. Thybulle should continue to start with Embiid out and has standard-league value in the short-term as defensive stats specialist.

  • Josh Richardson
    SF, Philadelphia Sixers

    Josh Richardson ran into a screen on Friday and injured his left elbow.

    The collision looked bad but Richardson was able to return to the game on Friday. He has played 36 minutes per game over his past six games, so there will be plenty of minutes to go around if he misses time. Matisse Thybulle has seen extra run with Joel Embiid out and could see increased value if Richardson misses time. Furkan Korkmaz, James Ennis and Mike Scott could also be streaming options for points and threes.

    Matisse Thybulle will get another start when the Sixers meet the Bulls on Friday.

    You know the drill with Thybulle at this point. He'll deliver steals and blocks and anything else is gravy. He is worth a pickup if that is your need, but the Thybulle experience is a roll of the dice even when he gets a start.

    Matisse Thybulle started again on Wednesday and racked up the defensive stats with two steals and four blocks, adding five points, three rebounds, one assist and one 3-pointer for the night.

    Thybulle did his thing again and yes we're teased. He's worth picking up as a streamer in standard leagues and should be a short-term hold in deeper ones while he's starting and this productive.

    Matisse Thybulle will get his fourth start of the season on Wednesday against the Nets.

    Thybulle has a clearer path to more minutes as of late with the injury to Joel Embiid. He is someone to monitor on waiver wires in standard leagues as he might become a streamable asset if he continues to start in Embiid's absence.

    Matisse Thybulle came off the bench for 28 minutes but didn't do much with them, going for six points, five rebounds, one assist, one steal, one block and one 3-pointer on Monday vs. the Pacers.

    Thybulle was alright in this one, but those that roster him need more defensive stats if he's going to get big minutes. He shot just 2-of-8 from the floor and split a pair at the line. Thybulle still has a great chance to be a fantasy darling in the future, but his role is too inconsistent as a rookie on a contender to trust him this season.
