Neto posted 16 points (5-8 FG, 2-3 3Pt, 4-5 FT), two rebounds, two assists and one steal across 21 minutes during Thursday's 125-108 victory over the Kings. Coach Brett Brown has found minutes for Neto in each of the past two games without Ben Simmons (back) available. Thursday's effort was one of Neto's best of the season and represented just the fifth time that he's scored in double digits as a member of the Sixers. Fantasy owners shouldn't count on Neto continuing this sort of production, and it's entirely possible he catches DNP-CDs once Simmons returns.
Neto (coach's decision) didn't see the court during Sunday's 136-130 loss to the Clippers. Neto was expected to fight for ample minutes with Ben Simmons (back) sidelined. However, Shake Milton has seized the starting point guard gig and seems very unlikely to relinquish that role. In fact, Milton exploded for a career-high 39 points in this one and sank an NBA record 14 straight treys across the last three tilts. As such, Neto can be left on waiver wires.
Neto is the favorite to start in place of Ben Simmons (back) on Monday against Atlanta, Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN reports. The Sixers have a few options to replace Simmons, but it appears Brett Brown is leaning toward giving Neto the first crack at filling the vacancy at point guard. Neto started against the Nets on Thursday in Simmons' place and finished with six points, four assists and two rebounds in 28 minutes. But against Milwaukee on Saturday -- a game in which Simmons played only five minutes -- Neto saw just six minutes of action off the bench. It would not be a surprise if Brown tries out some other options -- Shake Milton, Alec Burks, Josh Richardson -- as Simmons is widely expected to miss multiple games, if not weeks.
Neto isn't starting Saturday's game at Milwaukee, Keith Pompey of The Philadelphia Inquirer reports. Neto made a spot start Thursday but returns to the bench with Ben Simmons (back) returning to action Saturday. Neto figures to return to his limited role off the bench.
Neto recorded six points (1-3 FG, 4-4 FT), four assists and two rebounds in 28 minutes Thursday night during the 76ers 112-104 victory over Brooklyn. The void left by Ben Simmons' absence (back) was mostly distributed among typical contributors. Still, Neto was unproductive with his time and remains far removed from fantasy radars.
