  • 76ers' Joel Embiid: Dominates in tough victory
    By RotoWire Staff

    Embiid finished with 28 points (8-16 FG, 1-1 3Pt, 11-12 FT), 12 rebounds, eight assists and one block in 39 minutes during Tuesday's 118-112 victory over the Timberwolves. Embbid returned after a two-game absence, leading the 76ers to a come from behind victory. This game was focused on the matchup of the two centers, with Embiid getting the better of Karl-Anthony Towns on this occasion. He has been incredible so far this season, and barring any injury setbacks, should be locked in as a top 10 fantasy player.

  • 76ers' Joel Embiid: Available Tuesday
    By RotoWire Staff

    Embiid (back) will be available for Tuesday's game against the Timberwolves, Jerry Zgoda of the Minneapolis Star Tribune reports. The 76ers labeled Embiid a game-time decision heading into Tuesday evening's game even after he was able to participate in the morning's shootaround. The star big man missed the team's previous two games while nursing a sore back. It remains to be seen if the team will be cautious with his minutes in an attempt to avoid aggravating the issue. Embiid has logged more than 30 minutes in six of his previous seven games.

  • Embiid (back) will be a game-time decision for Tuesday's game against the Timberwolves, Keith Pompey of The Philadelphia Inquirer reports. Embiid was listed as questionable heading into shootaround, though it appears he's still dealing with some discomfort after testing his back out, which will cause him to be a game-time decision. It wouldn't be surprising if the 76ers opted to hold their star big man out, however, considering his injury history. If he's ultimately sidelined, Trevor Booker, Richaun Holmes and Amir Johnson are all candidates to see extended run.

  • 76ers' Joel Embiid: Questionable for Tuesday
    By RotoWire Staff

    Embiid (back) is listed as questionable for Tuesday's game against the Timberwolves, Kieth Pompey of the Philadelphia Inquirer reports. After sitting out Saturday's game for rest, Embiid was expected to return to the lineup Sunday, but was a late scratch after experiencing some tightness in his back. The Sixers aren't ready to clear Embiid for Tuesday's contest either, so consider him questionable for now, with another update likely coming following the team's morning shootaround. If Embiid remains sidelined, Amir Johnson and Richaun Holmes would cover his minutes at center.

  • 76ers' Joel Embiid: Back in the lineup Sunday
    By RotoWire Staff

    Embiid will play and start Sunday's game against the Pelicans, Jessica Camerato of NBC Sports Philadelphia reports. Embiid sat out Saturday's game for rest and was always expected to be back Sunday in the second game of a back-to-back, so this is merely confirmation of that. The Sixers aren't reporting any sort of restrictions, so look for Embiid to take on a full workload. Fantasy owners can go ahead and activate Embiid as usual. This sends Amir Johnson back to the bench, with both Johnson and Richaun Holmes likely losing minutes.
