76ers' Al Horford: Another strong showing
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

76ers' Al Horford: Nears triple-double
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

76ers' Al Horford: Contributes across the board in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

76ers' Al Horford: Quiet in start
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

76ers' Al Horford: Back in starting lineup
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

76ers' Al Horford: Quiet off bench
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Horford scored six points (2-5 FG, 0-2 3Pt, 2-3 FT), along with three rebounds, two assists, two blocks and a steal across 19 minutes in a 112-104 win over Brooklyn on Thursday.

After scoring nine points (3-4 FG) in his initial outing off the bench, Horford's output shrunk further Thursday. The situation is fluid for the 76ers and they are paying Horford too much money to simply etch him out of the rotation. However, with another primetime game awaiting Philadelphia on Saturday in Milwaukee, Horford can't be counted on to produce at a replacement level currently.

76ers' Al Horford: Bench role expected to continue
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Horford told reporters Wednesday that he expects to come off the bench moving forward, Kyle Neubeck of PhillyVoice.com reports.

In the 76ers' last game before the break, coach Brett Brown moved Horford to the bench, which was the first time the big man has come off the pine since his 2007-08 rookie campaign. Philadelphia was able to secure a 110-103 victory over the contending Clippers, which may be what's prompting the role switch to continue. It's unclear if Horford's workload will change dramatically, however. He saw 28 minutes against the Clippers, and he's averaging 30.9 minutes on the season.

76ers' Al Horford: Muted numbers in bench role
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Horford tallied nine points (3-4 FG, 1-2 3Pt, 2-2 FT), six rebounds, three assists and two blocks across 28 minutes Tuesday in the 76ers' 110-103 win over the Clippers.

Horford's move to the bench for the first time this season didn't yield any sort of meaningful improvement in his production, as his numbers were roughly on par with the 8.0 points, 6.0 boards and 2.8 assists he averaged in the prior five contests. Coach Brett Brown's decision to separate Horford and Joel Embiid more frequently at least translated to a win over a quality opponent, so it wouldn't be surprising if Horford sticks on the second unit moving forward. The arrangement could come with a slight downturn in playing time for Horford, which would make it increasingly more difficult to hold him in shallower leagues.

76ers' Al Horford: To come off bench
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Horford will be moved to a reserve role for Tuesday's game against the the Clippers, Ky Carlin of USA Today reports.

With the 76ers and Horford struggling, coach Brett Brown has opted to move Furkan Korkmaz into the starting lineup. This comes after his zero points (0-6 FG, 0-2 3PT) in 30 minutes performance against the Bulls. The veteran big man has not come off the bench in a game he was available for since his rookie season in 2007. It is unclear if this will continue being the plan going forward, but as of now the 33-year-old figures so see a relatively thinner workload.

76ers' Al Horford: Scoreless in 30 minutes
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Horford (Achilles) had zero points (0-6 FG, 0-2 3Pt), seven rebounds, two assists and two blocks in 30 minutes during Sunday's 118-111 win over the Bulls.

Horford had been listed as questionable due to left Achilles soreness but ended up earning a full load of minutes. He struggled badly offensively, and he's having his worst year in recent memory. It's possible Horford will turn things around as the season progresses, but thus far he hasn't looked all that comfortable playing the power forward position for the 76ers.

76ers' Al Horford: Good to go Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Horford (Achilles) is available for Sunday's game against the Bulls, Kyle Neubeck of PhillyVoice.com reports.

The veteran forward was considered questionable with left Achilles soreness, but he's set to take his usual starting spot in the Sixers' starting lineup Sunday. Horford is averaging 10.0 points, 6.8 rebounds and 3.0 assists in 28.8 minutes in four games since missing the Jan. 30 game in Atlanta with a knee injury.

76ers' Al Horford: Questionable with Achilles issue
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Horford is questionable for Sunday's game against the Bulls due to left Achilles soreness, Ky Carlin of USA Today reports.

If Horford is available, he might be required to start at center with Joel Embiid (neck) also questionable. If neither player is able to play, Kyle O'Quinn and Norvel Pelle would be the next men up.

76ers' Al Horford: Balanced line vs. Grizzlies
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Horford accumulated 10 points (4-10 FG, 2-5 3Pt), eight rebounds, six assists, one steal and one block across 31 minutes during Friday's 119-107 win over the Grizzlies.

Horford continues to shoot better at home, seeing a boost of 7.6 percent from the field, 4.6 percent from deep and a shocking 29.9 percent from the charity stripe. He's had plenty of peaks and valleys this season as well while getting adjusted to his new squad, but Horford has still posted a solid 26 performances with at least 30 fantasy points.

76ers' Al Horford: Will play Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Horford (knee) will play Saturday against Boston, Keith Pompey of The Philadelphia Inquirer reports.

Horford will return from a one-game absence due to right knee soreness. On the season, the veteran forward's averaging 12.5 points, 6.7 rebounds, 4.0 assists, 1.4 threes, 1.0 steal and 0.9 blocks in 31.1 minutes per contest.

76ers' Al Horford: Set to return Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Horford (knee) is probable for Saturday's game against Boston.

Horford missed Thursday night's matchup with the Hawks due to right knee soreness, but he's on track to return for Saturday's clash. He'll likely need to clear a few hurdles in morning shootaround to gain clearance, but the team expects him back in Boston.

76ers' Al Horford: Ruled out Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Horford (knee) won't play Thursday against the Hawks, Chris Kirschner of The Athletic reports.

Right knee soreness will force Horford to miss his first contest since Dec. 13, and it will mark his fifth absence on the season. Mike Scott (knee) should be the primary beneficiary from a minutes perspective.

76ers' Al Horford: Questionable with knee soreness
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Horford is questionable for Thursday's matchup against the Hawks due to left knee soreness, Ky Carlin of USA Today reports.

Horford has emerged from Tuesday's win over the Warriors with an injury, and it's possible he'll miss his first game since Dec. 13. More information may arrive following Thursday's morning shootaround.

76ers' Al Horford: Two dimes shy of triple-double
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Horford went for 12 points (4-11 FG, 2-6 3Pt, 2-2 FT), 11 rebounds, eight assists and one steal in 31 minutes during Tuesday's 115-104 win over the Warriors.

Horford delivered an impressive stat line, including a season high assist total, this despite the return of Joel Embiid (finger). Horford has been up and down in his first campaign with the 76ers, but he seems to be finding his groove of late and will look to do damage against both of his former squads in Thursday's matchup versus the Hawks and Saturday's showdown with the Celtics.

76ers' Al Horford: Scores 19 in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Horford had 19 points (9-15 FG, 1-3 3PT) and six rebounds in Monday's win over Brooklyn.

Horford was questionable coming in, but he battled through a sprained hand to start and play 26 minutes. Horford added two assists and two blocks to his ledger, as well.

January 20, 2020 01:32 PM
76ers' Al Horford: Will play Monday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Horford (hand) will be available for Monday's game against Brooklyn, Kyle Neubeck of PhillyVoice.com reports.

The veteran has been dealing with a sprained hand, but he always seemed to be trending toward being in the lineup Monday. Horford has played at least 32 minutes in each of his last eight games, and he's averaging 12.6 points, 6.8 rebounds, 4.8 assists and 0.9 blocks in that span.
