    Mike Scott started on Tuesday and hit four 3-pointers as part of a 12-point, 8-rebound, two-assist, one-steal performance in 36 minutes vs. the Lakers.

    With the Sixers missing three starters due to injury, Scott got the start on Tuesday. While the Sixers are short-handed, Scott could make a good 3-point streamer.

  • Al Horford

    Al Horford did everything for the Sixers vs. the Clippers on Sunday, accounting for 12 points, eight rebounds, six assists, two blocks, one steal and one 3-pointer.

    That's a lot of production in 29 minutes of floortime. Horford is going to be much better while Joel Embiid is out for the next week at a minimum. He is a lock for mid-round value under these circumstances and could be even better than that. Mike Scott was also strong off the bench with 11 points, six boards, three assists, three 3-pointers, two steals and one block. Scott won't be this amazing most nights, but he is going to be a useful 3-point specialist while he receives minutes in the mid-20s off the bench.

    Mike Scott came out of nowhere on Monday and was unconcious as he shot 5-of-7 from the field (all from downtown) to end up with 17 points and three rebounds in just 18 minutes of action.

    Scott was able to bring a pleasantly surprising outlier performance tonight. However the operative word there is "outlier," so don't go out of your way to grab him. It was a blowout win by the Heat and Scott's hot shooting is not sustainable.

    Mike Scott (right knee soreness) will play on Thursday against the Hawks.

    The Threegional Manager is ready to rock against his old team, and with Al Horford out, he might get more minutes than usual. If you need some out-of-position threes on a six-game night, give Scott a look.

    Mike Scott (right knee soreness) is questionable for Thurday's contest.

    With Horford also questionable, Kyle O'Quinn may see more minutes than usual against the Hawks. Scott doesn't carry much fantasy value in the first place.

    Al Horford (left knee soreness) is questionable for Thursday's game.

    With Horford and Mike Scott questionable, Kyle O'Quinn may see more minutes than usual against the Hawks. Owners of either player will want to check back for updates on game day.

    Mike Scott put up seven points in 26 minutes in his first start filling in for Joel Embiid on Thursday night.

    It was a quiet one for Scott, who is going to theoretically get some run as a starter. He may be a cheap daily play but the chances of him being a standard-league value are low. The same goes for Norvel Pelle, who got the nod over Kyle O'Quinn in this game against the Celtics but only played 13 minutes, with six points, four rebounds and two blocks.

  • Joel Embiid
    C, Philadelphia Sixers

    Joel Embiid will have surgery on Friday to address a torn ligament in his left hand and will be re-evaluated in 1-2 weeks.

    This is unfortunate news for the All-Star and it also illustrates his toughness for being able to play through the injury on Tuesday. Al Horford, Kyle O'Quinn and Mike Scott could all see their values increase for as long as Embiid remains out.

  • Joel Embiid
    C, Philadelphia Sixers

    Joel Embiid (illness) will be a game-time decision on Monday.

    Embiid will go through warmups before his final status is decided. He's averaging 24.5 points and 14.0 rebounds over his last ten games. Mike Scott should see more playing time if Embiid is held out.

  • Joel Embiid
    C, Philadelphia Sixers

    Joel Embiid will take the floor on Wednesday against the Heat after missing a game with an illness.

    As expected, Embiid will return after missing the Sixers' last game due to an illness. Mike Scott will head back to the bench unit and Embiid should be deployed as usual. He has proven to be a second-round talent so far this season.

    Mike Scott started for Joel Embiid (illness) on Sunday and put up eight points in 21 minutes of action.

    Scott had a better spot start for Al Horford when the Sixers played the Celtics, but he had a solid game on Sunday as well. He shot 3-of-5 from the field and knocked down two triples. He can be used for DFS when he starts for Embiid or Horford, but he is not worth owning in most formats.

    Mike Scott will replace Joel Embiid (illness) in the starting lineup for Sunday's matchup against the Nets.

    Al Horford will slide down to the center spot, while Scott will play his natural PF position tonight. Scott has a good matchup, but his usage is too low to consider for DFS.

    Al Horford (knee soreness, hamstring tightness) is listed as questionable for Sunday's matchup against the Brooklyn Nets.

    It would be Horford's third straight missed game if he is unable to suit up. Mike Scott should continue to start in is absence while Matisse Thybulle could also see more minutes in smaller lineups.

    Mike Scott started again for the Sixers for an injured Al Horford (left knee soreness/left hamstring tightness) and produced five points, nine rebounds, one 3-pointer and one steal.

    Scott continues to be the primary beneficiary of Horford's absence and is worth a short-term hold in 18-team leagues or deeper.

  • Al Horford
    PF, Philadelphia Sixers

    Al Horford (left knee soreness/left hamstring tightness) will not play vs. the Pelicans on Friday.

    Horford will miss his second straight game and this is what owners should've expected when they drafted him. He's going to take some days off and get banged up but this doesn't seem like too bad of an injury. Expect Mike Scott to benefit the most from Horford's absence.
