Raul Neto

  • Raul Neto
    PG, Philadelphia Sixers

    Raul Neto came off the bench on Thursday and scored 16 points on 5-of-8 shooting to go with two rebounds, two assists, a steal and two triples.

    Neto popped off the bench tonight on the heels of some incredible shooting. The minutes (21) are still low and this performance doesn't seem sustainable so we're going to hold off on calling him an add for now. Alec Burks (19 minutes, 17 points, three rebounds, one assist, two steals and three triples) also had a great night shooting the ball, but between him, Neto and Glen Robinson III (28 minutes, five points, five rebounds, one assist and a triple) there's too much production being split.

  • Ben Simmons
    PG, Philadelphia Sixers

    Ben Simmons (back tightness) will be available for Saturday's game against the Bucks.

    Simmons missed Thursday's game and Sixers gave starts to both Glenn Robinson III and Raul Neto. With Simmons back and Al Horford now officially with the second unit, it is unclear whether it will be Robinson or Neto who will stick with the starters of the Sixers go back to Furkan Korkmaz. In any case, coach Brett Brown said he does not want to commit to a single starting unit. If even if Korkmaz, Robinson or Neto can win the final starting position outright, it is unlikely any of them can carve out standard league value with the scoring and depth the Sixers possess.

    PG, Philadelphia Sixers

    Raul Neto started Thursday's game in the absence of Ben Simmons, scoring six points and dishing out four assists.

    Neto basically disappeared after a 19-point effort almost a month ago. He's clearly only on the radar if Ben Simmons misses time, so he can be left on the wire unless Simmons misses extended time.

    Raul Neto put up a season-high 19 points (7-of-10 FGs) in 21 minutes on Tuesday, adding two boards, two dimes, a swipe and three treys vs. the Warriors.

    Neto is in a position to get some extra minutes while Josh Richardson (left hamstring strain) recovers. Deep league players in need of a point guard may want to take a serious look at Neto for the short term.

    Raul Neto (illness) will be available for Monday's game.

    Neto went through shootaround and is apparently fine. He's still not worth using in fantasy.

  • Joel Embiid
    C, Philadelphia Sixers

    Joel Embiid (illness) is listed as questionable for Monday vs. the Pistons.

    The Sixers really have to start washing their hands before returning to work, as it seems that a few of their key players have come down with sniffles and tummy aches on numerous occasions. Embiid, of course, hasn't been spared. Raul Neto, who is dealing with the same illness, is listed as probable, so one could read that as positive sign for Embiid's availability. The Sixers are just extra cautious when it comes to their star big man. Here's hoping that the Sixers stop sharing their Juuls with one another.

  • Trey Burke
    PG, Philadelphia Sixers

    Trey Burke is listed as questionable on the injury report for Friday's tilt vs. the Spurs.

    Burke has only played in four contests with his new team and is in competition for the backup role with Raul Neto. Burke performed well on Wednesday in a limited role off the bench. Even in deeper leagues, he is best left on the wire until he becomes a consistent member of the rotation.

  • Ben Simmons
    PG, Philadelphia Sixers

    Ben Simmons (shoulder) is being upgraded to a game-time decsion ahead of Tuesday's matchup with the Cavs.

    If Simmons can't go, Raul Neto should get another start and is worth a streaming look.

    PG, Philadelphia Sixers

    Ben Simmons, who missed Sunday's game with an AC joint sprain in his right shoulder, is considered questionable to play on Tuesday.

    It's considered a minor injury, but the Sixers won't deploy Simmons unless they are confident that he is ready. Otherwise, Raul Neto should receive another start for the Sixers.

    PG, Philadelphia Sixers

    Raul Neto is slated to start in place of the injured Ben Simmons during Sunday's game versus the Hornets.

    Neto started and logged 30 minutes in the first game Simmons was forced to miss and he should be in line for a similar role tonight. He makes for a solid streaming and DFS option.

    Ben Simmons (AC joint sprain) is being listed as out for Sunday's game versus the Hornets.

    The injury is being considered minor, but Simmons is expected to miss at least one more game. Look for Raul Neto and Furkan Korkmaz to see extended run in Simmon's absence. He will be reevaluated on Monday.

    Raul Neto will draw the start for an injured Ben Simmons (shoulder) on Friday.

    Simmons is slated to miss three games while his shoulder heals, so Neto is worth a streaming play for that period.

    PG, Philadelphia Sixers

    Yahoo Sports has reported that Ben Simmons is likely to miss the next three games as he suffered a Grade 1 AC joint sprain in his right shoulder.

    It was previously reported that Simmons would miss Friday's game and be re-evaluated over the weekend before their next contest on Sunday. This news makes Raul Neto a viable streaming candidate as he saw 30 minutes in Wednesday's contest after Simmons exited with the injury. Trey Burke is another candidate for point guard minutes but has yet to play a minute for the Sixers this season.

    Ben Simmons suffered a sprained AC joint in his right shoulder during Wednesday's game and will be forced to miss Friday's matchup against the Nuggets as a result.

    The injury is not believed to be serious as the initial X-rays came back negative, but Simmons is scheduled to undergo further evaluation. His next opportunity to play will come on Sunday against the Hornets. Consider him a game-time decision for that contest for now. With Simmons out, Raul Neto and Trey Burke are the next men up on the depth chart while Neto saw 30 minutes of action on Wednesday after Simmons exited and scored 11 points to go along with three rebounds, four assist, three steals, four turnovers and one three-pointer on 5-of-11 shooting. Burke has yet to see any game action this season.

    Raul Neto logged 30 minutes on Wednesday, scoring 11 points on 5-of-11 shooting to go with three rebounds, four assists, three steals and a 3-pointer.

    Neto got most of the point guard minutes with Ben Simmons leaving the game early with a strained AC joint. If Simmons is unable to go, Neto might mop up most of the minutes again, but his value and ceiling are a bit too low to get us really excited about him.
