Korkmaz accrued 11 points (5-9 FG, 1-3 3Pt), two assists and one rebound in 25 minutes during Thursday's 115-106 victory over the Knicks.
This makes four straight games in which Korkmaz has scored in double figures. He's been swishing his shots from deep prior to this outing, combining for 10 made threes over his previous three contests, and teetering on the brink of standard-league value in that time span. This performance wasn't quite as nice for Korkmaz, but, as the 76er's best sniper, the team will expect the 22-year old to continue bombing from beyond the arc if he's given a longer leash in Ben Simmons' (back) absence.
Korkmaz contributed 15 points (3-8 FG, 3-7 3Pt, 6-7 FT), six rebounds, two assists and a steal in 31 minutes during Monday's 129-112 win over the Hawks.
With Ben Simmons (back) sidelined, Korkmaz gained some extra usage off the bench and led the Sixers' second unit in scoring. He could continue to see roughly 30 minutes of work on a nightly basis with Simmons out indefinitely. Korkmaz doesn't have high upside, but he's worth a look in deeper season-long leagues.
Korkmaz went for 17 points (7-14 FG, 3-4 3Pt), five rebounds and one assist in 26 minutes off the bench during Saturday's 119-98 loss at Milwaukee.
Korkmaz came off the bench once again but logged 26 minutes -- mostly due to Ben Simmons' injury -- and he has played at least 25 minutes in four of his last five games where he's come off the bench. He has also scored 12 or more points four times during that stretch and while he could move to the starting unit if Simmons is forced to miss time due to his recent back problem, it's clear Korkmaz fits better coming off the bench. At least for fantasy purposes, he will still get minutes regardless of any modifications in the rotation moving forward.
Korkmaz may continue to start for the 76ers moving forward, as Al Horford told reporters Wednesday that he expects to come off the bench for the foreseeable future, Kyle Neubeck of PhillyVoice.com reports.
In the 76ers' final game before the break -- a 110-103 home victory over the Clippers -- Horford came off the bench for the first time since his rookie season. Coach Brett Brown subsequently promoted Korkmaz to the starting five. However, he struggled against LA's tough defense, going 0-for-5 from the field for zero points, one rebound and one steal in 23 minutes. Across his 12 starts overall this season, Korkmaz is averaging 8.5 points and 2.4 rebounds. For now, Korkmaz is the favorite to continue getting the nod, though it's always possible that starting spot remains fluid.
Korkmaz will start at small forward in Tuesday's tilt against the Clippers, Keith Pompey of The Philadelphia Inquirer reports.
The 76ers have opted to switch up their starting lineup by inserting Korkmaz and bringing Al Horford off the bench. It remains to be seen if this is something they will stick with going forward, but for the time being it should increase the 22-year-old's minutes a bit. He has averaged 25.9 minutes per game in 11 starts as opposed to 20.1 in 42 games off the bench.
Korkmaz delivered 31 points (12-17 FG, 6-11 3Pt, 1-1 FT), five rebounds, three steals and two assists in 32 minutes during Sunday's 118-111 win over the Bulls.
Korkmaz has been absolutely incredible these last two games, combining for 65 points on 25-of-34 from the field and 13-of-20 from beyond the arc. Furthermore, Korkmaz matched his career high in steals in this one, and he's doing all he can to hold off recent additions Glenn Robinson and Alec Burks from eating into his minutes.
Korkmaz scored a career-high 34 points (13-17 FG, 7-9 3Pt, 1-3 FT) while adding six rebounds, four assists and a block in 29 minutes off the bench during Friday's 119-107 win over the Grizzlies.
While the Sixers emptied the bench in the fourth quarter with a big lead, most of Korkmaz's production came when the game still hung in the balance -- he popped for 20 points in the first half alone. The third-year guard is locked in from long range right now, draining multiple three-pointers in four straight games and 11 of his last 12 while averaging 13.8 points, 3.1 threes, 2.3 boards and 14 assists in 23.8 minutes a night. He's shooting 43.0 percent from beyond the arc over that stretch.
Korkmaz tallied 12 points (4-12 FG, 2-8 3Pt, 2-2 FT), three rebounds and one assist in 28 minutes during Thursday's 112-101 loss to Milwaukee.
Korkmaz continues to provide a decent enough supply of three-pointers while offering very little else. Unfortunately, both Glenn Robinson and Alec Burks are on their way from Golden State and could theoretically cut into Korkmaz's opportunities. He is not someone that you should be hanging onto in standard formats, and his streaming value could take a hit moving forward.
Korkmaz supplied 14 points (4-9 FG, 2-6 3Pt, 4-4 FT), four rebounds, two assists and a steal across 25 minutes in Saturday's 116-95 loss to the Celtics.
Korkmaz regressed for a few games after an exemplary five-game run, where he averaged 16.6 points and 2.0 rebounds. Saturday's game brought him back to more familiar territory after dismal outings against Atlanta and Golden State. He's too inconsistent to be a viable fantasy option currently, but he's an injury away from an expanded role.
Korkmaz scored 17 points (6-13 FG, 4-8 3PT, 1-2 FT) and added two rebounds, one assist and two blocks in 27 minutes during Wednesday's 107-95 loss to Toronto.
Korkmaz extended his streak of games with double-digit points to five with the effort. His 27 minutes played were tied with his highest total since Nov. 29.
Korkmaz scored 17 points (6-12 FG, 3-7 3Pt, 2-3 FT) in 22 minutes during Saturday's 90-87 win over the Knicks.
Korkmaz didn't contribute in any other categories besides scoring and threes, but he has scored at least 15 in three straight while canning 12 treys across this recent stretch of games. It was another much-needed offensive punch in a tilt where the 76ers struggled to score, managing just 90 against the lowly Knicks. Korkmaz will try to stay hot heading into Monday's matchup versus the Nets.
Korkmaz contributed 24 points (8-11 FG, 6-9 3Pt, 2-2 FT), four rebounds and one block in 27 minutes during Friday's 100-89 win over the Bulls.
Korkmaz finished with career highs in scoring and threes while matching Josh Richardson for the fifth-most minutes on the team. When called upon and confident, Korkmaz can cook up offensively on any given night, and the team is in desperate need of the three-point shooting he brings to the table.
Korkmaz finished with 15 points (5-13 FG, 3-6 3Pt, 2-5 FT) and two rebounds in 21 minutes during Wednesday's 117-106 win over the Nets.
Korkmaz came alive in the final quarter, scoring nine of his 15 points in the first four minutes of the fourth. He snapped an eight-game streak of single-digit scoring, and given that the 76ers need all the perimeter shooting they can get, Korkmaz is likely to continue earning decent minutes in hopes that he can grease the wheels of the team's offense more often going forward.
Korkmaz managed three points (1-5 FG, 1-5 3Pt), two rebounds, two steals and one assist in 23 minutes during Monday's 101-95 loss to the Pacers.
Korkmaz snagged at least two steals for the seventh time through 40 appearances, though he was otherwise awfully quiet in this one. He has been held to single digits in scoring in eight straight games, and Korkmaz is best reserved for the deepest formats.
Korkmaz finished with just nine points, one rebound and one assist in 14 minutes during Tuesday's 115-97 loss to Indiana.
Korkmaz has been providing intermittent value, albeit in very limited categories. Unfortunately, this was not one of those occasions and highlights the reason he should not be considered a 12-team asset. He has streaming value in points and threes, although that comes with an element of risk given his inconsistency.
Korkmaz had 16 points (5-10 FG, 4-5 3Pt, 2-4 FT), two boards, one block and three steals in 25 minutes against the Bucks on Wednesday.
Korkmaz followed up his season-high output on Monday with another double figure scoring effort thanks to an efficient day from behind the arc. It was his second consecutive double-digit scoring day after failing to reach that threshold for the first 11 games this month. He'll look to continue his hot streak Friday against the Magic.
Korkmaz had 21 points (9-16 FG, 3-7 3PT), four rebounds and three steals in 22 minutes off the bench during Monday's 125-109 win at the Pistons.
Korkmaz hadn't scored in double figures during the entire month of December despite starting four games during that span, but he came out of nowhere to deliver his best scoring output of the season. While he's not going to crack the starting unit any time soon, he needs to remain on this run of form to remain fantasy relevant moving forward.
Korkmaz scored six points (2-3 FG, 2-3 3Pt) in eight minutes during Wednesday's 108-104 loss to the Heat.
Korkmaz was able to give it a go despite dealing with knee soreness. Nevertheless, the 22-year-old shooting guard didn't see very many minutes even though the Heat zone stifled the 76ers offensively and Korkmaz canned a couple treys. He's still averaging more minutes than rookie Matisse Thybulle on the year, but that hasn't been the case here in December. Moreover, Korkmaz hasn't reached double figures in scoring since Nov. 30, and he provides little else from a statistical standpoint.
Korkmaz (knee) isn't on the injury report ahead of Wednesday's game against Miami.
It was reported earlier in the day that Korkmaz was dealing with some knee soreness, but it's evidently not serious enough to place him on the team's injury report. He should be ready to go for Wednesday's clash.
Korkmaz is battling soreness in his right knee but is expected to play Wednesday against the Heat, Serena Winters of NBC Sports Philadelphia reports.
Korkmaz seemingly came away with some soreness following Sunday's matchup in Brooklyn, but it's not expected to cost him any game action. He should be available to take on his usual bench role Wednesday night.
