76ers' J.J. Redick: Drops 23 in OT win over Hornets
Redick scored 23 points (9-17 FG, 5-11 3Pt) while adding one rebound, one assist and one block in 30 minutes during Saturday's 122-119 overtime win over the Hornets.
The veteran guard knows his role -- in five games since moving into the starting lineup, Redick is averaging 21.2 points and 3.2 made three-pointers on 44.4 percent shooting from beyond the arc. Joel Embiid and Jimmy Butler should emerge as the focal points of the Sixers' offense once Butler has fully adjusted to his new surroundings, with Ben Simmons facilitating matters, but at least so far there have been more than enough shots left over for Redick to make a fantasy impact as well....

76ers' Ben Simmons: Just misses triple-double in OT win
Simmons scored 23 points (7-13 FG, 9-11 FT) while adding 11 rebounds, nine assists and two steals in 39 minutes during Saturday's 122-119 overtime win over the Hornets.
After racking up 12 triple-doubles in his first NBA campaign last season, Simmons already has two this year and nearly grabbed his third in 17 games Saturday. The Sixers are still adjusting to the addition of Jimmy Butler, but it doesn't seem like Simmons' multi-category fantasy impact will be affected.... See More ... See Less
76ers' Joel Embiid: Drops team-high 33 in OT win
Embiid (hand) scored 33 points (9-23 FG, 2-5 3Pt, 13-14 FT) while adding 11 rebounds, three assists, two blocks and a steal in 40 minutes during Saturday's 122-119 overtime win over the Hornets.
The swelling Embiid's been experiencing in his right hand didn't slow him down at all, as he still recorded his 16th double-double of the season while scoring 30-plus points for the 10th time in 18 games. The 24-year-old played only 63 games last season, so his ability to stay healthy remains a concern, but at the moment the hand issue doesn't seem like it will keep him off the court.... See More ...

76ers' Wilson Chandler: Coming off bench Saturday
Chandler will come off the bench Saturday against the Hornets, Keith Pompey of The Philadelphia Inquirer reports.
Mike Muscala will start in place of Chandler, who is limited to about 12 minutes. As a result, he's an incredibly risky play in DFS.... See More ... See Less
76ers' Mike Muscala: Starting Saturday
Muscala will start for Wilson Chandler during Saturday's game against the Hornets, Keith Pompey of The Philadelphia Inquirer reports.
With Chandler's minutes limited to about 12, coach Brett Brown will opt to bring him off the bench. Over the past three games, Muscala has averaged 9.0 points, 5.7 rebounds and 1.0 assists.... See More ... See Less
76ers' Wilson Chandler: Minutes limit decreased Saturday
Chandler is expected to only play about 12 minutes during Saturday's second half of back-to-back set against Charlotte, Serena Winters of NBC Sports Philadelphia reports.
A starting lineup change may be in effect as well. Chandler has been limited to about 20 minutes recently, but the team is still choosing to be extra cautious on the second half of a back-to-back.... See More ... See Less
76ers' Amir Johnson: Scores 11 points in Friday's win
Johnson totaled 11 points (4-9 FG, 2-3 3Pt, 1-2 FT), five rebounds, and three assists in 14 minutes during Friday's 113-107 win over the Jazz.
Johnson hit double figures in scoring for the first time since the second contest of the season (back on Oct. 18). He had combined to play eight minutes over the last two tilts, and has earned single-digit minutes in five of nine November matchups. With that being said, Joel Embiid got into foul trouble in this one, presenting Johnson with the opportunity to make things happen. Still, Johnson is only worth a look in the very deepest leagues....

76ers' Ben Simmons: Posts 10-8-8 line in Friday's win
Simmons supplied 10 points (4-9 FG, 2-5 FT), eight rebounds, eight assists, one steal, and one block in 36 minutes during Friday's 113-107 win over the Jazz.
Simmons delivered his usual well-rounded line, including a key bucket late that helped put the team over the top. Fantasy owners should still expect an adjustment period in the aftermath of the Jimmy Butler acquisition. However, Simmons has never been a big-time scorer, and Butler provides Simmons with another exceptional offensive option to help him rack up assists.... See More ... See Less
76ers' Mike Muscala: Plays 32 minutes in Friday's win
Muscala had nine points (3-7 FG, 3-5 3Pt), four rebounds, one steal, and one block in 32 minutes during Friday's 113-107 win over the Jazz.
Muscala saw the fourth-most minutes on the team and a season high minute total, albeit on a night when Joel Embiid struggled with foul trouble. Coach Brett Brown continues to regularly rely on lineups with two traditional big men, which bodes well for backups like Muscala and Amir Johnson. With that being said, Muscala remains a modest source of scoring, boards, and threes, and anything else he contributes should be viewed as a bonus.... See More ... See Less
76ers' Markelle Fultz: Plays 14 minutes in Friday's win
Fultz finished with six points (2-5 FG, 2-4 FT), three rebounds, and two assists in 14 minutes during Friday's 113-107 win over the Jazz.
Fultz saw a season low minute total, and this was just the second time through 17 appearances that he has earned less than 20 minutes. Not only did the acquisition of Jimmy Butler push Fultz into a reserve role, it also appears to be reducing his on-court opportunities, as he has averaged 17.5 minutes per game through Butler's first two tilts with the team. Fultz could still figure out how to make an impact despite seeing limited action, but the odds that he'll maintain value in standard leagues are stacked against him.... See More ... See Less
76ers' Jimmy Butler: Scores 28 points in Friday's win
Butler contributed 28 points (12-15 FG, 2-3 3Pt, 2-5 FT), seven assists, three rebounds, and two steals in 38 minutes during Friday's 113-107 win over the Jazz.
Butler was extremely efficient, finishing with nearly twice as many points as field-goal attempts while providing his usual impact on defense as well. Butler had been resting regularly while still with the Timberwolves, including on the front or back end of back-to-backs. However, it's unclear whether that will continue now that he's with the 76ers. Fantasy owners would be wise to check on Butler's status heading into Saturday's matchup with the Hornets....

76ers' Wilson Chandler: Grabs five boards in Friday's win
Chandler managed two points (1-3 FG, 0-1 3Pt) and five rebounds in 22 minutes during Friday's 113-107 win over the Jazz.
Chandler exceeded his 20-minute limit, but just barely. He continues to start at power forward in the aftermath of acquiring Jimmy Butler. However, given how many mouths there are to feed, Chandler will likely remain most useful in deep leagues even once the restriction is removed.... See More ... See Less
76ers' Joel Embiid: Nursing swollen hand
Embiid intends to play in Saturday's game against the Hornets even though he is dealing with a swollen hand, Serena Winters of NBC Sports Philadelphia reports.
Embiid revealed the injury following Friday's victory over the Jazz. He compiled 23 points (7/20 FG, 1/4 3PT, 8/9 FT), seven rebounds, two assists, three blocks, and two steals across 26 minutes in the contest. The hand issue reportedly goes back to a game against the Suns last season. Although he expects to play Saturday, the issue could be something to keep an eye on going forward.... See More ...

76ers' Wilson Chandler: Still on minutes restriction
Chandler will remain limited to 20 minutes in Friday's game against the Jazz, Tom Moore of the Bucks County Courier Times reports.
Chandler's minutes limit has steadily increased since his return from a hamstring injury, but it will remain at 20 minutes for the second straight game. With that, Chandler can be safely avoided in DFS contests for as long as he remains limited, and Mike Muscala should continue seeing extended frontcourt minutes off the bench during that time....

76ers' Jonah Bolden: Assigned to G-League
Bolden was assigned to the G-League on Thursday.
Bolden has seen spot run with Philly this season, totaling 40 minutes across six games. In that time, he's racked up 10 points, nine rebounds, three steals, two assists and a block. In an effort to get him more in-game experience, the organization has opted to send him to the G-League.... See More ... See Less
