Joel Embiid News
Philadelphia 76ers center Joel Embiid (knee) is listed as questionable ahead of the Game 5 outing against Atlanta. The big man has been a frequent flyer on the injury report since suffering a small meniscus tear in his right knee during the previous series against Washington. Although Embiid hasn't missed a game yet, he has obviously been impacted by the ailment, at least on the scoring end, finishing the Game 4 loss by going 4-for-20 from the field. As a result, fantasy managers shouldn't be afraid to look elsewhere for DFS production on Wednesday night by keeping Dwight Howard in mind as a value option, primarily after he had 10 boards and seven points in only 12 minutes of work on Monday night.
