  • 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.

  • 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.

  • 76ers' Jimmy Butler: Scores 14 in Sixers debut

    Butler scored 14 points (6-12 FG, 0-1 3Pt, 2-2 FT) while adding four rebounds and two assists in 33 minutes during Wednesday's 111-106 loss to the Magic.

    It wasn't a successful Sixers debut for the 29-year-old, either from a team or a personal perspective, but he'll have plenty of time to learn how to work effectively with his two extremely talented new teammates in Joel Embiid and Ben Simmons. Butler still averaged 22.2 points per game last season in similar circumstances in Minnesota, and there's no reason to think he'll suddenly struggle in Philly.

  • 76ers' Joel Embiid: Triple-double in loss to Magic

    Embiid scored 19 points (6-20 FG, 4-7 3Pt, 3-4 FT) while adding 13 rebounds, 10 assists and two blocks in 36 minutes during Wednesday's 111-106 loss to the Magic.

    Playing alongside the newly acquired Jimmy Butler for the first time, Embiid didn't have his most efficient offensive performance but still recorded the first triple-double of his career. He's already averaging a career-high 3.9 assists per game so far this season, but with Butler now in the fold to draw defensive attention, and J.J. Redick apparently remaining in the starting five to help spread the floor for the Sixers, Embiid's distribution numbers could continue to rise.

  • 76ers' J.J. Redick: Scores team-high 22 in loss to Magic

    Redick scored 22 points (8-13 FG, 4-7 3Pt, 2-2 FT) while adding six assists and four rebounds in 33 minutes during Wednesday's 111-106 loss to the Magic.

    Somewhat surprisingly, Jimmy Butler's addition to the Sixers' lineup didn't push Redick back to the bench, and the veteran guard rewarded coach Brett Brown with his third straight 20-plus point performance. The 34-year-old doesn't offer much fantasy value outside of his shooting, but with opposition defenses now having to worry about Butler as well as Joel Embiid and Ben Simmons, Redick --who's already averaging 2.9 three-pointers on 8.4 attempts per game, both career highs -- should continue to see plenty of wide-open looks.

  • 76ers' J.J. Redick: Will remain in starting five

    Redick will keep his spot in the starting lineup for Wednesday's game against the Magic, Tim Bontemps of ESPN reports.

    The Sixers will have the newly acquired Jimmy Butler available for the first time, and coach Brett Brown elected to 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. Redick has started the last two games after Robert Covington and Dario Saric were dealt to Minnesota, however, and with the Sixers in need of more floor spacing on the top unit, Redick will stick at shooting guard over Fultz, giving the team 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.
