Horford collected 20 points (8-11 FG, 4-6 3Pt), 10 rebounds, six assists and two blocks in 29 minutes during Wednesday's 124-106 win over the Pistons. Horford was extremely efficient while turning in a well-rounded stat line in the lopsided victory. He hasn't been much of a factor in lineups with both Joel Embiid (shoulder) and Ben Simmons (back), the former having just returned following a five-game absence while the latter is rehabbing his injury. Nevertheless, with the league suspending play for the time being, Horford's recent hot streak has been halted for now.
Horford posted 22 points (9-16 FG, 2-5 3Pt, 2-2 FT), 10 rebounds, seven assists and one block in 36 minutes during Saturday's 118-114 loss at Golden State. Horford has been heavily criticized this season, but he seems to be turning things around with other Sixers regulars out hurt. This 22-point effort was his highest output since Nov. 2, and now he has posted double-digit scoring performances in five of his last six starts. He is averaging 14.2 points while shooting 42.3 percent from three-point range during that stretch.
Horford put up 15 points (5-10 FG, 4-4 3Pt, 1-2 FT), nine assists, seven rebounds, one steal and one block in 34 minutes during Thursday's 115-106 victory over the Knicks. When Ben Simmons went down with a back issue, an opportunity arose for Horford to put some of his playmaking skills on display, and he answered the call. This was a gem of a stat line from the 33-year old, topped off by his nine dimes. Joel Embiid (shoulder sprain) was also out in this one, but fantasy owners will still hope that this type of performance wasn't a one-game fluke. The team is losing 8.2 assists per game in the absence of Simmons, so there's a chance the distributing duties get spread across multiple players. Horford's fantasy value is still sitting inside the top 75 in nine-category leagues, but he's fallen outside of the top 125 over the past month of play. Maybe this game will kickstart his value, and get him back on the right foot.
Horford recorded seven points (3-8 FG, 1-4 3Pt), eight rebounds, five assists and a block across 30 minutes in Monday's 129-112 win over the Hawks. With Ben Simmons (back) out, Horford entered the starting lineup and was mostly ineffective versus his former team. Per usual, the veteran filled the stat sheet in multiple categories, but he struggled with his shot (37.5 percent) and failed to get to the free-throw line. Nonetheless, it was encouraging to see Horford log 30 minutes, which he hadn't done in any of the prior three games. With Simmons out indefinitely, Horford could remain a starter for the foreseeable future, which would be a significant boost to his fantasy value.
Horford will get the start at power forward in Monday's game against the Hawks, Keith Pompey of The Philadelphia Inquirer reports. Horford has played a reserve role in the 76ers' past three games, marking the first time he's come off the bench since his rookie season. While he has yet to come out of his slump, the 76ers have opted to put him back in the starting unit due to the absence of Ben Simmons (back). As a result, Horford figures to see a slightly increased workload.
