76ers' Jahlil Okafor: Out Sunday vs. Pacers
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Okafor (knee) has officially been ruled out for Sunday's matchup with the Pacers, Jessica Camerato of CSN Philadelphia reports.

Okafor was given a doubtful designation earlier Sunday, so this was the expected course of action all along. He'll miss a second consecutive game and third over the Sixers' last four, with his next opportunity to take the floor on Tuesday against the Nets. Look for Richaun Holmes to pick up the start and see the bulk of the workload at center, while Shawn Long should have a bigger role off the bench as well.

76ers' Jahlil Okafor: Doubtful Sunday vs. Pacers
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Okafor (knee) is unlikely to play in Sunday's game against the Pacers, Keith Pompey of the Philadelphia Inquirer reports.

Okafor has been dealing with a sore right knee and has missed two of the Sixers' last three games. Coach Brett Brown said he fully expects Okafor to remain on the sidelines Sunday, which should mean yet another start for Richaun Holmes. In seven previous starts for Holmes, he's averaged 13.0 points, 6.3 rebounds and 1.6 assists across 26 minutes. Look for confirmation on Okafor's status sometime closer tip-off.

76ers' Jahlil Okafor: Won't play Friday against hometown Bulls
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Okafor (knee) will not play Friday against the Bulls, K.C. Johnson of the Chicago Tribune reports.

Okafor's absence Friday will be his second of this week, and figures to result in Richaun Holmes getting another start at center. With Okafor sidelined Monday, Holmes went off for 24 points, 14 rebounds and five assists against the Magic. While Holmes can't be expected to match that level of production, Okafor's injury could make him a good short-term option, as the Sixers play again Sunday versus the Pacers.

76ers' Jahlil Okafor: Unlikely to play Friday vs. Bulls
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Coach Brett Brown suggested after the team's morning shootaround that Okafor (knee) is unlikely to play Friday against the Bulls, Keith Pompey of the Philadelphia Inquirer reports. "If you made me guess, he's going to be doubtful," Brown said.

The 76ers are officially labeling Okafor as a game-time decision Friday, but his lack of participation in shootaround coupled with Brown's comments suggest the team is leaning toward holding the second-year big man out for the second time in three games due to the sore right knee. Okafor was able to start and play 17 minutes in Wednesday's loss to the Thunder, but he apparently bumped his knee in the contest. Given that the knee has been a regular issue for Okafor all season, it wouldn't be surprise if he missed games beyond Friday, which would potentially put Richaun Holmes' short-term fantasy value on the rise. When Okafor last sat out Monday against the Magic, Holmes started and produced 24 points, 14 rebounds, five assists, one steal and one block across 42 minutes. Holmes should make for an appealing DFS target once again Friday.

76ers' Jahlil Okafor: Scores just six points in return
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Okafor (knee) contributed six points (3-6 FG), two rebounds and two assists across 17 minutes during a 122-97 loss to the Thunder on Wednesday.

Okafor wasn't able to get much going in the return as he only received 17 minutes. He had strung several good games together before he was forced to sit out with the sore knee, but it's hard to imagine him being productive on a consistent basis while receiving such a low amount of minutes.
