  • Josh Richardson
    SF, Philadelphia Sixers

    Josh Richardson scored 15 points with two rebounds, four assists, and one steal against the Nets on Monday.

    Richardson committed seven turnovers on Saturday but only one in Brooklyn. He shot 6-for-12 from the floor and 1-for-2 from the perimeter. Richardson is not a superstar but is definitely a key piece of the Sixers' rotation.

  • Al Horford

    Al Horford (left hand sprain) managed to play 26 minutes on Monday, ending with 19 points, six rebounds, two assists, and two blocks.

    Horford shook off a rough game on Saturday in this return to form. He has failed to reach double digit points in only two contests during January. Horford is also worth keeping around in fantasy for his defense.

  • Ben Simmons
    PG, Philadelphia Sixers

    Ben Simmons posted a triple-double with 34 points, 12 rebounds, 12 assists, five steals, and two blocks in Monday's win over the Nets.

    Did he miss anything? Owners have to be thrilled when Simmons delivers value in every category while shooting 12-for-14 from the field and 10-for-14 at the line. He played 42 minutes, and there's little wonder why Brett Brown hardly lets him leave the floor.

  • Al Horford
    PF, Philadelphia Sixers

    Al Horford (left hand sprain) will be active for Monday's matchup with the Nets.

    Kyle O'Quinn and Mike Scott will remain in smaller roles off the bench with Horford able to play. Feel free to get him back into your lineups.

  • Norvel Pelle
    C, Philadelphia Sixers

    Norvel Pelle (undisclosed) is being listed as out against the Nets on Monday.

    Pelle is missing an opportunity to see a nice role in the Sixers rotation as Al Horford (hand) is considered a game-time decision. Kyle O'Quinn and Mike Scott would be staring on big minutes if Horford can't play.

    Al Horford (left hand sprain) is considered to be a game-time decision for Monday's game against the Nets.

    Continue to monitor the situation closely, as Kyle O'Quinn and Mike Scott would be looking at heavy minutes if Horford can't go. Norvel Pelle has been ruled out.

  • Al Horford
    PF, Philadelphia Sixers

    Al Horford (left hand sprain) is being listed as questionable for Monday’s game versus the Nets.

    Horford injured his non-shooting hand on Saturday but it does not appear to being anything long-term. Norvel Pelle would be expected to see extended run if Horford is unable to play, but Pelle only has one day left on his 45-day contract.

  • Tobias Harris
    SF, Philadelphia Sixers

    Tobias Harris scored 15 point sin Saturday's win over the Knicks, finishing with eight rebounds and three assists.

    In a ho-hum game, Harris was still able to contribute some points and boards. He did not register any defensive stats, but did connect four from downrange. With Joel Embiid out with injury, Harris should be the Sixers primary scorer. Look for him to rebound in the next one.

  • Ben Simmons
    PG, Philadelphia Sixers

    Ben Simmons scored 21 points in Saturday's win over the Knicks, finishing with seven rebounds, eight assists, two steals and no turnovers.

    Simmons had another solid game but fell flat at the charity stripe, converting just 3-of-8. However, he did not turn the ball over for just the third time this season. The rebounds and assists buoy him enough to overlook a lot of warts in his game, but besides the free throw shooting this was a solid game.

  • Josh Richardson
    SF, Philadelphia Sixers

    Josh Richardson scored 18 points in Saturday's win over the Knicks, finishing with three rebounds, four assists, two steals, a block and seven turnovers.

    Contributing across the board in all countable statistics this would have been a great game for Richardson, except for the seven turnovers. He continues to be a solid contributor in defensive statistics and has seen his ball-handling duties increase, so owners should take this performance with a grain of salt.

  • Furkan Korkmaz
    SG, Philadelphia Sixers

    Furkan Korkmaz finished Saturday's win over the Knicks with 17 points, on 6-of-12 shooting from the field, with no other countable statistics logged.

    Coming off the bench, Korkmaz scored 17 points, with three from behind the arc. However, the nice points are completely empty as he did not contribute at all in any other statistical category and over the past five games has averaged less than two rebounds and one assist per game. He should not be owned in any but the deepest of leagues.

  • Al Horford
    PF, Philadelphia Sixers

    Al Horford put up 20 points on 8-of-14 shooting to go with five rebounds, six assists and two threes in 32 minutes on Friday.

    Horford stuffed the stat sheet on Friday and has had at least five rebounds and five assists in each of the five games since Joel Embiid (finger) has been sidelined. Horford is a top-30 player over that stretch, averaging 15.4 points, 7.0 rebounds, 5.6 assists, 1.2 steals and 1.4 blocks. This is vintage Horford but his value will take a hit when Embiid returns. Try and sell-high on Horford after this stretch but make sure you get a top-40 player in return.

  • Ben Simmons
    PG, Philadelphia Sixers

    Ben Simmons double-doubled on Friday with 20 points (10-of-17 shooting), 11 rebounds and seven assists in a 100-89 win over the Bulls.

    Simmons even managed to avoid going to the free throw line so he didn't hurt his owners' free throw percentage. His fantasy holes are well-documented with bad free throw percentage, high turnovers and no threes. However, Simmons still puts up enough in the counting stats to hold early-round value.

  • Furkan Korkmaz
    SG, Philadelphia Sixers

    Furkan Korkmaz caught fire on Friday, shooting 8-of-11 from the field and 6-of-9 from beyond the arc on his way to a career-high 24 points with four rebounds in 27 minutes.

    Korkmaz played great on Friday and Coach Brown noticed. Brown said Korkmaz "changed the game" and they ran plays for him that they used to run for JJ Redick. That's high praise for Korkmaz and he could be worth an add in 16-team leagues as a threes specialist after two good games in a row (15 points with three 3-pointers on Wednesday).

  • Matisse Thybulle
    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.
