  • 76ers' Georges Niang: Comes up empty

    Niang had zero points (0-7 FG, 0-7 3Pt), one assist and two steals across 22 minutes during Monday's 106-92 loss to the Heat.

    Niang has been a reliable source of threes for Philadelphia thus far in the playoffs, making 1.7 triples per game on 48.0 percent shooting. However, he saw no such success Monday, going scoreless despite leading the 76ers' bench in minutes. Philadelphia shot an abysmal 17.6 percent from beyond the arc and will look to improve that figure in Game 2 on Wednesday.

  • 76ers' Georges Niang: Moves to bench

    Niang will come off the bench for Wednesday's game against the Lakers.

    Niang will come off the bench Wednesday after contributing 15 points, four rebounds, four assists, one block and a steal across 33 minutes as a starter during Monday's win over Miami. He's averaging 9.6 points, 2.8 rebounds and 1.4 assists in 23.5 minutes per game this season.

  • 76ers' Georges Niang: Enters starting lineup

    Niang is starting Monday against Miami, Justin Grasso of SI.com reports.

    With Joel Embiid (back) ruled out for Monday's matchup, Niang draws his first start since Feb. 17 against Milwaukee, when he logged 40 minutes in a victory. He's been a solid bench contributor for the Sixers of late, averaging 10.7 points and 3.9 rebounds in his last seven games.

  • 76ers' Georges Niang: Solid output off bench

    Niang ended with 12 points (4-8 FG, 4-7 3Pt), five rebounds and one assist across 27 minutes during Friday's 111-101 victory over the Mavericks.

    Niang was deadly from three-point range and made his presence felt off the bench both as a scorer and as a rebounder. He has scored in double digits in four of his last six appearances off the bench.

  • 76ers' Georges Niang: Chips in four threes

    Niang ended Monday's 121-106 victory over the Bulls with 14 points (4-7 FG, 4-7 3Pt, 2-2 FT), three rebounds and two assists across 19 minutes.

    Niang led the 76ers' bench in minutes and was the only second-unit contributor to supply more than three points. Interestingly, Furkan Korkmaz didn't play despite not carrying a pregame injury designation, so Niang soaked up extra usage in another dominant Philadelphia victory. Niang is shooting 40.1 percent from beyond the arc this season, his fourth consecutive year connecting on over 40 percent of his triples.

  • 76ers' Georges Niang: Back to bench

    Niang will return to a reserve role for Friday's matchup against Minnesota, Keith Pompey of The Philadelphia Inquirer reports.

    Niang will move to the bench, as James Harden will be making his debut with the team. He's averaging 9.0 points, 2.5 rebounds and 1.4 points across 22.1 minutes in 48 games as a reserve this season.

  • 76ers' Georges Niang: Scores 18 points in starting role

    Niang closed Thursday's 123-120 win over the Bucks with 18 points (6-12 FG, 5-10 3Pt, 1-2 FT), six rebounds and two assists across 40 minutes.

    Niang made his first start since early December and capitalized on the opportunity with his highest scoring output since Dec. 28. The sixth-year forward tied a season high with five three-pointers to account for a majority of his production. Niang's move into the starting five isn't likely to be permanent, so there's no need to grab him off the fantasy waiver wire based on this outlier performance.

  • 76ers' Georges Niang: Gets chance with first unit

    Niang is starting Thursday's game against the Bucks, Ky Carlin of USA Today reports.

    Niang's last start dates back Dec. 3 when he got the starting nod against Atlanta. He'll take the place of Danny Green in an effort to put forth a larger first unit Thursday evening in Milwaukee.

  • 76ers' Georges Niang: Scores nine points off bench

    Niang finished Tuesday's 135-87 loss to Boston with nine points (2-6 FG, 1-4 3Pt, 4-4 FT) and four rebounds over 22 minutes.

    Niang, along with the rest of the 76ers, struggled during Tuesday's blowout loss to the Celtics. The forward is in the midst of a career year, averaging 9.3 points, 2.7 rebounds and 1.5 assists in 23.1 minutes per game -- all career highs. However, his production off the bench hasn't been consistent enough for him to be a steady fantasy contributor.

  • 76ers' Georges Niang: Scores 13 off bench

    Niang recorded 13 points (5-6 FG, 3-4 3Pt) and one assist over 17 minutes during Friday's 107-98 loss to the Mavericks.

    While he doesn't do quite enough to warrant fantasy consideration in most leagues, Niang continues to be an important cog off the bench for coach Doc Rivers. He's locked into a role of 15-to-25 minutes on most nights, and he continues to shoot it well from beyond the arc (39.7% 3Pt) after closing last season at a career-high 42.5 percent.

  • 76ers' Georges Niang: Hammers four triples in win

    Niang posted 14 points (5-7 FG, 4-6 3Pt), three rebounds and two assists across 24 minutes during Thursday's 105-87 victory over the Lakers.

    Niang had the hot hand off the bench for the 76ers, scoring in double-digits for just the third time this calendar year. While he can be a sneaky source of triples if you can catch him on the right night, his productive outings are too few and far between to warrant a roster spot outside of the deepest formats.
