Joel Embiid News
Philadelphia 76ers center Joel Embiid was a jack of all trades on Sunday against the Thunder, scoring 22 points with nine rebounds, six assists, one steal and three blocks in a 115-103 win. Embiid played 33 minutes and didn't commit a single turnover while shooting 8-for-15 from the field and 4-for-6 at the line. He stayed efficient from downtown as well, sinking two triples with five attempts. The Process is nailing 46 percent of his shots from deep this and is still getting 21 points a night despite averaging fewer than 30 minutes. He'll go up against a tough Knicks team next, who boast the league's second-best defense versus opposing centers.
Philadelphia 76ers center Joel Embiid (knee) is good to go for Sunday's matchup against the Oklahoma City Thunder. He was questionable for the second game in a row due to a knee injury, but he'll be toughing it out and starting at center as usual. Embiid has had a bit of a quiet start to the year. Through his first two games, he's averaging 20.5 points and 7.0 rebounds per game while shooting 43.8% from the field. Maybe a favorable matchup against the Thunder will help get him on track.
Philadelphia 76ers center Joel Embiid (knee) carries a questionable tag ahead of Sunday's matchup in Oklahoma City. Embiid had the same designation before Friday's loss to Brooklyn but still managed to suit up, finishing with 19 points, eight boards, four assists, and two blocks. With Andre Drummond (ankle) trending in the wrong direction after being marked as doubtful, Georges Niang and Paul Reed could get some additional run against the Thunder. Neither man has much value beyond the matchup against OKC in seasonal formats, although they have some appeal in DFS contests.
Philadelphia 76ers center Joel Embiid (knee) will play on Friday against the visiting Nets. Embiid continues to deal with right knee soreness after he tore his meniscus during the postseason over the Summer. It's unknown how many minutes Embiid will log, so DFS managers may want to consider other options. However, he remains a must-start for those in seasonal formats against a Brooklyn team that lacks physicality underneath the rim.
