Philadelphia 76ers center Jahlil Okafor (right knee soreness) is listed as questionable and will be a game-time decision for Friday night's road matchup with the Chicago Bulls. What It Means: Okafor was unable to participate in shootaround on Friday morning after taking a hit to the knee during Wednesday night's loss to the Oklahoma City Thunder. It doesn't sound like Okafor is going to play. If that's the case, Richaun Holmes would enter the starting lineup and be worth a look. Across six starts this season, Holmes is averaging 13.8 points, 6.8 rebounds, 1.0 steals and 0.8...

Philadelphia 76ers center Jahlil Okafor (knee) will play Wednesday versus the Oklahoma City Thunder. What It Means: Okafor's return from a one-game absence will cost Richaun Holmes some minutes, but the latter is still a superior value to the former. Outside of deeper formats, Okafor isn't someone worth rostering. numberFire's metrics project Embiid to turn in 12.2 points, 5.1 rebounds, 1.1 assists and 1.1 blocks in 22.7 minutes against the Thunder.

Philadelphia 76ers forward/center Richaun Holmes draw a start on Friday, racking up 24 points and a career-high 14 rebounds to go with 4 assists, 1 steal and 1 block in 42 minutes of action as the Sixers fell 112-109 to the Orlando Magic. What It Means: Holmes drew the start with Jahlil Okafor (knee) sidelined, and with Philly not having much front-court depth, he should continue to see big-time minutes for as long as Okafor remains out. Holmes has averaged 8.7 points, 5.0 rebounds and 1.0 blocks in only 18.7 minutes per game. His 2.6 nERD on the year is a team-high and also...

Jahlil Okafor (knee) won't play as 76ers battle Bulls

Philadelphia 76ers center Jahlil Okafor (knee soreness) will not play against the Chicago Bulls on Friday night. What It Means: Okafor has been bothered by soreness in his right knee for the better part of the last 12 months, so this could be an extended absence. Richaun Holmes is a must-start fantasy play with Okafor out of the lineup. Dario Saric could also get a little run at the five, but Shawn Long will be Holmes' primary backup. numberFire's algorithms project Holmes for 14.5 points, 8.3 rebounds, 1.2 steals and 1.9 blocks across 29.1 minutes of...

Murphy: Jahlil Okafor came up small in big games in NCAA Tournament

LIFE IN TANKVILLE is full of all kinds of subtle and unexpected pleasures. Take the NCAA Tournament. When the Sixers were mediocre, March was a time for watching buzzer beaters, and predicting upsets, and remembering that places such as Greensboro and Tulsa exist (opening weekend is great . . . as long as you don't have to live there).
