  • 76ers' J.J. Redick: Will move into starting five

    Redick will move into the starting lineup for Wednesday's game against the Magic, Tim Bontemps of ESPN reports.

    The Sixers will shake things up after dealing a pair of starters over the weekend to acquire Jimmy Butler. Brett Brown will go with Joel Embiid, Wilson Chandler and Butler up front, with Redick and Ben Simmons in the backcourt. Redick was a starter last season, but he was moved to the bench to begin the 2018-19 season, as the Sixers attempted to get Markelle Fultz back in rhythm. In need of more floor-spacing on the top unit, Redick will reclaim his spot at shooting guard, giving the Sixers one of the more complete starting lineups in the league.

  • 76ers' Jimmy Butler: Will play, start Wednesday

    Butler will make his 76ers debut and start at small forward during Wednesday's game against the Magic, Tim Bontemps of The Washington Post reports.

    Butler will take over Robert Covington's spot in the lineup. Coach Brett Brown is also opting to start Wilson Chandler at power forward, plus bench Markelle Fultz in favor of J.J. Redick. It's possible Butler sees a reduced workload on his new team, but he should still see 30-plus minutes on a nightly basis.

  • 76ers' Wilson Chandler: Gains starting job

    Chandler has claimed the starting power forward job, Tim Bontemps of The Washington Post reports.

    The Sixers sent away starting forwards Robert Covington and Dario Saric to acquire Jimmy Butler. Butler will slide into Covington's spot while Chandler takes over Saric's spot. Chandler's minutes have been limited so far this season due to recovery from a hamstring injury, but he should see around 30 minutes per night once he's medically cleared.

  • 76ers' Markelle Fultz: Will come off bench

    Fultz, due to the addition of Jimmy Butler, will come off the bench for the foreseeable future, Tim Bontemps of The Washington Post reports.

    Fultz has started all 15 games this season in an attempt by coach Brett Brown to get him comfortable within the offense after missing 68 games during his rookie year. The addition of Butler changes the Sixers' on-court dynamics, so coach Brown will opt to bring Fultz off the bench as a ballhandler, rather than try to mesh him, Butler and Ben Simmons into the starting lineup. Despite losing his starting role, Fultz could still continue to see 24.3 minutes per game. In that time, he's averaged 9.0 points, 3.8 rebounds, 3.5 assists and 1.1 steals on 41.2 percent shooting.

  • 76ers' J.J. Redick: Drops 25 in likely final start

    Redick scored 25 points (11-20 FG, 3-9 3Pt) while adding three assists and a rebound in 31 minutes during Monday's 124-114 win over the Heat.

    The veteran sharpshooter has taken advantage of his brief starting window while the Sixers wait for Jimmy Butler to officially join the roster, scoring 20-plus points in back-to-back games while going 6-for-15 from three-point range. Redick should maintain a key role off the bench once Butler arrives, but it's unlikely he'll continue to average the 31.1 minutes, 17.9 points or 8.4 three-point attempts per game -- all career highs -- he's been seeing to date.

  • 76ers' Joel Embiid: Dominates Heat in win

    Embiid scored 35 points (8-15 FG, 3-4 3Pt, 16-20 FT) while adding 18 rebounds and three assists in 36 minutes during Monday's 124-114 win over the Heat.

    The points and boards were both game highs for either team, as Embiid dropped 30-plus points for the ninth time while supplying his eighth straight double-double and 14th overall in 15 games. It will be interesting to see how the addition of Jimmy Butler to the Sixers' lineup affects Embiid's usage, but given the dominant numbers he's posted so far, it's hard to imagine his shot attempts -- particularly the career-high 11.1 free-throw attempts per game he's averaging -- will decrease too much.

  • 76ers' Wilson Chandler: Cleared to play 20 minutes

    Chandler will start Monday's game against the Heat but he'll be limited to around 20 minutes, Keith Pompey of the Philadelphia Inquirer reports.

    In the wake of the Jimmy Butler trade, the Sixers will move Chandler into the starting lineup at power forward, but he'll remain on a minutes restriction in his fourth game back after missing the start of the season with a hamstring strain. As a result, he's best avoided in DFS contests for the time being, but once that restriction is lifted, Chandler should have an expanded role with Robert Covington and Dario Saric now out of the picture. Serena Winters of NBC Sports Philly reports that Chandler is expected to be cleared for a full workload beginning with Wednesday's game in Orlando.

  • 76ers' Mike Muscala: Cleared to return Monday

    Muscala (nose) is available to play Monday against the Heat, Serena Winters of NBC Sports Philadelphia reports.

    Muscala has been cleared to return after missing the previous three games with a broken nose. Prior to suffering the injury, the big man posted averages of 7.4 points and 3.8 rebounds across 20.6 minutes per game. Muscala should see a healthy dosage of minutes Monday following the departures of Dario Saric and Robert Covington.

  • 76ers' J.J. Redick: Starting again vs. Heat

    Redick will start Monday's game against Miami, Tim Bontemps of ESPN reports.

    In the wake of the Jimmy Butler trade, Redick moved into the starting five for Saturday's game against Memphis, and he'll remain in that role Monday with Butler unavailable. The expectation is that Butler will assume Redick's spot beginning with Wednesday's game in Orlando, though at some point the Sixers could start the pair together if Markelle Fultz's early-season struggles continue. Redick had 20 points, including three made threes, in 34 minutes of action Saturday.
