Paul Millsap News
Philadelphia 76ers forwards Georges Niang and Paul Millsap will move into the starting five for Monday's game against the Miami Heat. Both James Harden and Joel Embiid will take the night off due to rest purposes. That means, Niang and Millsap will join Tyrese Maxey, Matisse Thybulle and Tobias Harris in the starting five. Maxey is probably the best fantasy option out of all the starters. However, Niang could have sneaky streaming appeal or DFS value, assuming he gets hot from beyond the arc.
Philadelphia 76ers point/shooting guard James Harden (trade) and center Paul Millsap (trade) have not yet been cleared to suit up with the team, ruling them out vs. Oklahoma City on Friday. Harden missed the final four games of his Nets tenure due to a tight left hamstring, as that will be an ailment to monitor moving forward. In the long-term, Harden's elite fantasy potential will only rise, as he is just one of two players (Chris Paul) to average a double-double this season with points and assists. Millsap is likely to fill a moderate bench role in the frontcourt, with his appeal emerging solely when/if Joel Embiid is forced to miss action. Their next chance to play comes Saturday against the Cavaliers.
Brooklyn Nets power forward/center Paul Millsap has reportedly been acquired by the 76ers just prior to the trade deadline on Thursday, coming aboard alongside James Harden in this year's blockbuster deal. Millsap had fallen out of Brooklyn's frontcourt rotation, and with Andre Drummond joining the Nets in return, the veteran became expendable. Limited to a career-low 11.3 minutes per outing this season, Millsap has averaged just 3.4 points and 3.7 boards on a nightly basis. He is unlikely to play his way into season-long relevance with Philadelphia, but he should serve as an intriguing DFS asset should Joel Embiid be sidelined at any point.
Brooklyn Nets forward Paul Millsap (personal) won't play on Sunday in Denver, as expected. The veteran remains out while the team looks to move him ahead of the February 10th trade deadline, so it's likely he has already played his final game in Brooklyn. However, with LaMarcus Aldridge (ankle) and Nicolas Claxton (hamstring) both out, the Nets certainly could have used him. Nevertheless, James Johnson, Day'Ron Sharpe, and Blake Griffin should handle most of the minutes in the frontcourt, although none of them have been consistent this season by any means.
