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 Joel Embiid (left knee) will have surgery in the coming days. What It Means: This has been the expectation for a while now. Embiid will probably be held out of Summer League as he recovers from the small tear in his meniscus, but the 23-year-old big man should be ready to go by preseason. Richaun Holmes will continue to prosper. Tonight against the Oklahoma City Thunder, numberFire's models project Holmes to record 11.8 points, 6.6 rebounds, 1.3 assists, 1.2 steals and 1.4 blocks in 24.0 minutes. Source: Rotoworld.com

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...

The Sixers still have 13 games remaining in this roller coaster of a season. Firmly back in tanking territory, the 76ers oppose the Bulls in Chicago tonight (8:00 PM EST, CSN Philly). Here are three things to watch for tonight: Richaun Holmes - Dominant Offensive Player Disliking the Nerlens Noel trade, and everything that led up to and surrounded it, does not mean you can’t also be excited that it has opened up more playing time for Richaun Holmes.

76ers will have Jahlil Okafor (knee) on Wednesday night

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.
