76ers' Ben Simmons: Continues to shine on offense
Simmons scored 22 points (9-18 FG, 4-4 FT) while adding eight rebounds, seven assists, two blocks and a steal in 35 minutes during Wednesday's 121-120 win over the Pelicans.
The second-year player continues to be a streaky scorer, but right now he's hot, averaging 21.3 points a game over his last three to go along with his typically excellent 10,0- boards, 8.3 assists and 1.3 steals during that brief stretch. Simmons still doesn't have a useful three-point shot, but he's athletic and skilled enough to find open space and attack the rim when he gets aggressive with the ball -- something which should occur more frequently as he matures....

76ers' Joel Embiid: Rolls through elite competition
Embiid scored 31 points (11-23 FG, 2-4 3Pt, 7-9 FT) while adding 19 rebounds, two assists and two blocks in 32 minutes during Wednesday's 121-120 win over the Pelicans.
Not even a matchup Anthony Davis could slow Embiid down. The Sixers' center scored 30 or more points for the third straight game and the 12th time this season, while the double-double was his 18th in 20 games, putting him in the league lead in that category.... See More ... See Less
76ers' Markelle Fultz: Nursing wrist injury, wants trade
Fultz (shoulder) is also dealing with a right wrist injury and would like to be traded, Sam Amick of The Athletic reports.
It was already reported that Fultz was going to be away from the 76ers to have his shoulder further examined, but it now appears that a right wrist injury is also hampering his shooting stroke both from deep and the free throw line. On top of all of that, the situation between he and Philadelphia appears to have soured, but given Fultz's current trade value, the 76ers may not be too inclined to deal the former No. 1 overall pick right away. Fultz's time away from the team, however, looks like he could go beyond just one week.... See More ... See Less
76ers' Demetrius Jackson: Recalled from G League
Jackson was recalled from the G League on Wednesday, Keith Pompey of The Philadelphia Inquirer reports.
Jackson has yet to play in the NBA, spending almost all of his time in the G League. Still, he'll be available for Wednesday's game against the Pelicans.... See More ... See Less
76ers' Shake Milton: Recalled from G League
Milton was recalled from the G League on Wednesday, Keith Pompey of The Philadelphia Inquirer reports.
Milton has yet to play a game for the 76ers, spending most of his time in the G League. It's unlikely he'll see significant NBA run anytime soon.... See More ... See Less
76ers' T.J. McConnell: Outshines Fultz as backup point man
McConnell played eight minutes and finished with two points (1-3 FG), two steals, one rebound and one assist Monday in the 76ers' 119-114 win over the Suns.
McConnell's stat line was nothing to write home about, but it's worth noting that he saw more run in the second half as the backup point guard than 2017 No. 1 overall pick Markelle Fultz, whose shooting struggles have lingered into his sophomore campaign. Coach Brett Brown wouldn't commit to either player being the main backup to Ben Simmons after the contest, but the decision was made for him Tuesday, when David Aldridge of The Athletic relayed that Fultz would step away from the team and meet with a shoulder specialist in New York early next week. With Fultz now facing an uncertain return timeline, McConnell should regularly crack double-digit minutes, though that probably won't be enough to give him much fantasy appeal outside very deep formats....

76ers' Markelle Fultz: Out at least one week
Fultz will see a shoulder specialist early next week and will be away from the team until he is evaluated, David Aldridge of The Athetlic reports.
Fultz's struggles have continued this season, and prior to Tuesday's news, it appeared he was on the verge of losing his spot in the rotation to T.J. McConnell. However, Fultz will now be completely out of the lineup until further testing is done on his shoulder that plagued him for nearly all of his rookie season. In his absence, T.J. McConnell should now be in line for plenty of minutes as the backup point guard to Ben Simmons.... See More ... See Less
76ers' Furkan Korkmaz: Hands out career-high four dimes
Korkmaz accumulated two points (1-5 FG, 0-3 3Pt), four assists, and three rebounds in 16 minutes during Monday's 119-114 win over the Suns.
Korkmaz finished with a career high in assists while earning double-digit minutes for the sixth straight contest. It seems safe to say Korkmaz has solidified a spot in the team's regular rotation, as trading two players (Robert Covington and Dario Saric) for one (Jimmy Butler) opened up some playing time. The 76ers don't have much depth along the wing. Moreover, Korkmaz's ability to stretch the floor with his shot makes him a fine fit in lineups with the team's top players. With that being said, Korkmaz is best reserved for use in deeper leagues.... See More ... See Less
76ers' Joel Embiid: Dominant in Monday's win
Embiid recorded 33 points (12-23 FG, 0-5 3Pt, 9-12 FT), 17 rebounds, three steals, one assist, and one block in 36 minutes during Monday's 119-114 win over the Suns.
Embiid continues to deliver incredible offensive and defensive counting stats, and his ability to get to the free-throw line (and sink them) bolsters his already impressive scoring prowess. While coach Brett Brown indicated that Embiid could receive a night off at some point to rest his bruised hand, it's unlikely that will take place on Wednesday, as Embiid will probably be amped up to face another elite big man in Anthony Davis....

76ers' Wilson Chandler: Plays 31 minutes in Monday's win
Chandler chipped in two points (1-4 FG, 0-1 3Pt), four rebounds, and three assists in 31 minutes during Monday's 119-114 win over the Suns.
Chandler was supposedly going to be limited to 27 minutes, but he surpassed that to earn the fourth-most minutes on the team. Chandler fills a need, as the 76ers are lacking along the wing, particularly defensively, outside of Ben Simmons and Jimmy Butler. It's still unclear when Zhaire Smith (foot) will return, though it's likely later rather than sooner. As a result, unless another trade is on the horizon or the buyout market heats up, Chandler is a good bet to keep earning plenty of playing time going forward.... See More ... See Less
76ers' Mike Muscala: Scores season-high 19 points
Muscala posted 19 points (4-6 FG, 2-3 3Pt, 9-11 FT) and five rebounds in 23 minutes during Monday's 119-114 win over the Suns.
Muscala finished with a season high in scoring despite moving back into a reserve role following Saturday's start against the Hornets, in which he saw a season-high 37 minutes. Muscala continues to provide decent contributions in the scoring, rebounding, and three-point shooting categories, and he is clearly a regular part of the team's rotation given that this was his lowest minute total of the month....

76ers' Mike Muscala: Heads back to bench
Muscala will resume a bench role Monday against the Suns.
Muscala drew the start at power forward Sunday, scoring just six points over 37 minutes of action. He should log a good chunk of playing time off the bench, but Wilson Chandler gets the nod and figures to do so moving forward.... See More ... See Less
76ers' Wilson Chandler: Starting Monday
Chandler will start Monday's game against the Suns.
After ceding his starting spot to Mike Muscala for Sunday's game, Chandler will resume his usual role Monday. The move corresponds with an increase in Chandler's minutes restriction to a maximum of 27 minutes. Chandler appears to be on the right track to playing without any limitations soon.... See More ...

76ers' Jonah Bolden: Will be reevaluated in 10 days
Bolden was diagnosed with a small cortical crack in the proximal fibula of his right leg Monday.
Bolden suffered the injury during Saturday's G League game, and a subsequent MRI confirmed the severity of the issue. He's expected to be reevaluated in 10 days.... See More ... See Less
76ers' Wilson Chandler: Minutes restriction increased
Coach Brett Brown said Chandler will be limited to 27 minutes Monday against the Suns, Serena Winters of NBC Sports Philadelphia reports.
Chandler hasn't played more than 23 minutes in a game this season while working back from a hamstring injury, but he's getting closer to handling a full dosage of minutes. The veteran figures to see around 30 minutes per contest once his minutes restriction is lifted.... See More ... See Less
