76ers' Jahlil Okafor: Absent from injury report
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Okafor (illness) is not listed on Thursday's injury report, Jessica Camerato of NBC Sports Philadelphia reports.

Okafor was held out of Wednesday's season opener against the Wizards due to the illness, but it looks like the extra day of rest has helped him get over it. Okafor is expected to return to his role Friday as center Joel Embiid's primary backup, which will likely result in the former Duke standout playing around 20 minutes off the bench.

76ers' Jahlil Okafor: Fails to play in season opener
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Okafor (illness) didn't play in the 76ers' 120-115 season-opening loss Wednesday to the Wizards.

It's unclear if the illness -- which Okafor first came down with Monday -- was the primary reason he didn't play or if he's simply not a part of the 76ers' early-season rotation. Though the injury to Richaun Holmes (wrist) created a void at the backup center spot behind Joel Embiid, it's possible that Amir Johnson will receive the first crack at filling that spot rather than Okafor. Though he fouled out and shot just 2-for-7 from the field in 15 minutes, Johnson offers a floor-stretching element that Okafor doesn't bring to the position.

76ers' Markelle Fultz: Makes work of limited action Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Fultz finished with 10 points (5-9 FG, 0-2 FT), three rebounds, one assist and one block across 18 minutes during Wednesday's 120-115 loss to the Wizards.

Fultz came off the bench and saw limited action after dealing with shoulder and knee injuries during the preseason. He'll seemingly get more run once he's feeling better and more comfortable within the gameplan, so it's hard to put a lot of stock in Wednesday's effort. That said, he was ultimately effective in his debut.

76ers' Dario Saric: Falls flat Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Saric finished with three points (1-5 FG, 0-2 3Pt, 1-1 FT), three rebounds, two assists and one block across 23 minutes during Wednesday's 120-115 loss to the Wizards.

Lack of minutes wasn't the problem Wednesday, as he posted 12.8 points, 6.3 rebounds and 2.2 assists across 26.3 minutes per game last season. The 76ers have a new look this season, so there may be an adjustment period for Saric, who will seemingly be relied upon less with the likes of Ben Simmons and Markelle Fultz in the fold. That said, he's still a skilled player capable of playing two (maybe three) positions and should continue to find time on the floor.

76ers' Ben Simmons: Excels in debut Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Simmons supplied 18 points (7-15 FG, 4-6 FT), 10 rebounds, five assists, two steals and one block across 35 minutes during Wednesday's 120-115 loss to the Wizards.

Simmons played as advertised Wednesday, putting up a myriad of stats on both ends of the floor. While his assist numbers were maybe lower than some fantasy owners were hoping, he committed just one turnover and arguably made up for it with the rest of his play. Overall, it was an impressive debut for the Rookie of the Year candidate.
