De'Anthony Melton News
Philadelphia 76ers guard De'Anthony Melton (back) has been ruled out for Saturday's game against the Atlanta Hawks. His absence will move Matisse Thybulle into the starting five for Saturday's game. Thybulle is a good defender, but doesn't offer much upside in terms of scoring. Tyrese Maxey and Joel Embiid are the focal points on offense for this team right now. Thybulle should get increased playing time with Melton sidelined, but he's really more of a deep league asset.
Philadelphia 76ers guard De'Anthony Melton (back) was a late scratch for Wednesday's clash with Washington and his status for Friday's game versus the Knicks is currently unknown. Melton was ruled out of the game with lower back stiffness. Matisse Thybulle ended up starting in his place but sprained his ankle and wasn't able to finish the game, so this was a bad night for Philadelphia on the injury front. Melton had just found some rhythm and started to produce solid numbers at both ends of the floor. Shake Milton logged a season-high 15 minutes Wednesday and should pick up the slack once again if Melton and Thybulle are unavailable Friday.
Philadelphia 76ers guard De'Anthony Melton (hip) has said that he plans to play Wednesday against Toronto. The team has listed him as questionable for the matchup, but the 24-year-old is apparently feeling fine for the contest following the morning shootaround. Melton's eagerness to play is completely understandable because his start to the season hasn't gone too well. He's averaged 6.3 points per game in 18.3 minutes of action with 2.5 rebounds and 1.3 steals. Melton logs the most minutes off the Sixers bench alongside Danuel House Jr., but neither player has managed to make a big impact in fantasy hoops.
Philadelphia 76ers guard De'Anthony Melton (groin) is questionable to play against the Toronto Raptors on Wednesday. Melton is coming off his best game of the season but appears to be dealing with some soreness in the groin area. Melton does not have a huge role with the Sixers right now, averaging only 18 minutes per game off the bench this season. However, if he were to be ruled out, Melton's absence would lead to some extra minutes for Shake Milton, Furkan Korkmaz and Danuel House Jr.
