Surprisingly, coach Doc Rivers will insert Thybulle in the starting five for the injured Joel Embiid (knee), opting to still bring Dwight Howard off the bench. In eight starts this season, Thybulle has averaged 5.1 points, 3.4 rebounds, 3.0 steals, 1.6 assists and 1.4 blocks in 29.0 minutes. In the absence of a true center, Ben Simmons appears to be in line to serve as the nominal five on the first unit.

The Sixers are yet again without a few regulars, so coach Doc Rivers will shuffle the deck and go with Thybulle at one forward spot while Mike Scott shifts to the bench. Thybulle tied his season high with 13 points -- to go with three steals -- in 31 minutes during Monday's loss to Golden State.

Thybulle is one of the better defenders in the league, and he showed why once again Monday night. The Washington product is averaging 1.5 steals and 1.2 blocks in the month of April. Thybulle won't provide much from an offensive standpoint but his defensive abilities make him a guy to keep an eye on if you need steals and blocks.
Thybulle recorded three points (1-2 FG, 1-2 3Pt), three rebounds, three steals and two blocks in 26 minutes during Saturday's win over the Thunder.
The 24-year-old received the start Saturday with Tobias Harris (knee) and Danny Green (hip) out and racked up three steals and two blocks while adding a three-pointer.

Until Harris and Green return to the lineup, feel free to stream the second-year guard if you need steals and low-end blocks.
