Philadelphia 76ers Player Notes
For The Last 365 Days
 
Tony Wroten, G11/26/2014 9:28:00 PM
Description: 76ers guard Tony Wroten recorded 18 points and 10 assists during Wednesday's loss to the Nets.
Insight: The issue tonight was that Wroten had eight turnovers as well. However, he will continue to be a solid option, assuming he continues to start.
Henry Sims, C11/24/2014 9:21:00 PM
Description: 76ers center Henry Sims scored a season-high 22 points on Monday.
Insight: He also had four rebounds and was 8-of-14 from the field and 6-of-6 from the line. Sims can be safely kept on the waiver wire for now.
Michael Carter-Williams, G11/24/2014 9:19:00 PM
Description: Sixers point guard Michael Carter-Williams scored 24 points in Monday's loss to Portland.
Insight: He was 10-of-24 from the field and 4-of-5 from the line. Carter-Williams also chipped in seven rebounds, two assists, two steals, and two turnovers. He needs to contribute more in the assist column, but it was a solid night, nevertheless.
Nerlens Noel, C11/22/2014 10:18:00 PM
Description: 76ers center Nerlens Noel played very well in Saturday's loss to the Knicks.
Insight: He was 6-of-11 from the field, but only 5-of-10 from the line for 17 points, 12 rebounds, two assists, one steal, one block, and two turnovers. Free throws will continue to be an issue for Noel, but hopefully he will continue to produce lines like this one.
Michael Carter-Williams, G11/21/2014 9:30:00 PM
Description: Sixers point guard Michael Carter-Williams started and led the team with 18 points on Friday versus the Suns.
Insight: Carter-Williams also had six rebounds and six assists. He continues to be the best fantasy option on the worst team in the league.
Tony Wroten, G11/21/2014 5:39:00 PM
Description: 76ers guard Tony Wroten will start at shooting guard against the Suns on Friday.
Insight: Wroten will line up next to Michael Carter-Williams, Luc Mbah a Moute, Nerlens Noel and Henry Sims. Wroten is averaging 19.3 ppg this season.
Tony Wroten, G11/19/2014 9:56:00 PM
Description: 76ers guard Tony Wroten led the team with 21 points on Wednesday against the Celtics.
Insight: Wroten finished the team's top scorer despite shooting 7-of-19 from the field and a bad 1-for-6 from behind the arc. He also had seven assists and three rebounds.
Michael Carter-Williams, G11/17/2014 10:56:00 PM
Description: Sixers point guard Michael Carter-Williams came off the bench on Monday and scored 16 points.
Insight: He was the best player for the lowly 76ers, who are now 0-10. He had 16 points, shooting 7-for-14, and grabbing five rebounds and four assists.
Michael Carter-Williams, G11/17/2014 1:38:00 PM
Description: Sixers point guard Michael Carter-Williams will continue to come off the bench ... at least Monday, according to Keith Pompey.
Insight: MCW will eventually go back to his starting role as soon as he knocks the rust of his game. At the moment he's shooting just 32.3 percent from the field after being a 40 percent guy last season. Despite that he's still averaging 16.0 ppg, 6.5 rpg, 5.0 apg, 1.0 spg.
Tony Wroten, G11/14/2014 10:40:00 PM
Description: 76ers guard Tony Wroten scored 19 points in Friday's loss to Houston.
Insight: He also had eight assists, four rebounds, one steal, two 3-pointers, and four turnovers. It will be interesting to see how much time Wroten gets once Michael Carter-Williams re-enters to starting lineup.
Alexey Shved, G11/14/2014 10:58:00 AM
Description: Sixers point guard Alexey Shved is doubtful for Friday's game against Houston with a sore lower back.
Insight: Shved missed Thursday's game and is unlikely for Friday as there is no reason to push any Sixers player before they are 100 percent since they aren't trying to win games this season ... again.
Michael Carter-Williams, G11/14/2014 10:12:00 AM
Description: 76ers point guard Michael Carter-Williams (shoulder) played for the first time in 2014-15.
Insight: Coming off the bench, MCW was obviously rusty but scored 19 points on 6-of-19 shots with eight rebounds and five assists. The Sixers team looked horrible in another blowout loss, but this was encouraging for Carter-Williams fantasy owners.
Michael Carter-Williams, G11/13/2014 4:48:00 PM
Description: 76ers point guard Michael Carter-Williams (shoulder) will likely come off the bench Thursday night against Dallas.
Insight: This is according to Carter-Williams himself, as it will be his first game in almost seven months. We think he will have a solid fantasy season, but owners need to temper expectations early on.
K.J. McDaniels, F11/12/2014 2:49:00 PM
Description: 76ers forward K.J. McDaniels has 2.2 blocks per game over his last five contests.
Insight: McDaniels told the Philadelphia Inquirer on Wednesday that it would "mean a lot" to start for the 76ers. It sounds like coach brett Brown is not ready to plug McDaniels into the starting lineup, but the rookie is trending up. In deep leagues, stash McDaniels and keep an eye on him in shallow leagues.
Michael Carter-Williams, G11/11/2014 2:24:00 PM
Description: 76ers point guard Michael Carter-Williams (shoulder) will be eased back into the flow and likely won't play big minutes at the start, according to head coach Brett Brown.
Insight: Carter-Williams is expected to return against Dallas on Thursday. He averaged 34.5 mpg last season and posted 16.7 ppg, 6.2 rpg, 6.3 apg. But since the Sixers are obviously not trying to win games this season his return date is no doubt "flexible."
Alexey Shved, G11/11/2014 2:19:00 PM
Description: Sixers point guard Alexey Shved missed Tuesday's practice due to back soreness and should be considered questionable for the next game.
Insight: Shved has played solid basketball, but at less than 18 mpg can't put up enough statistics to be fantasy worthy.
Tony Wroten, G11/7/2014 9:39:00 PM
Description: 76ers guard Tony Wroten scored 31 points as the 76ers nearly came back against the Bulls, but ultimately fell short, 118-115, on Friday.
Insight: Wroten did not shoot all that well, making 3-out-of-10 from the 3-point line and 11-of-27 from the field overall, but he finished with 31 points. That's 58 points in the last two games for Wroten.
Nerlens Noel, C11/7/2014 12:22:00 PM
Description: 76ers center Nerlens Noel left Wednesday's game against the Magic due to an ankle injury and will not play Friday.
Insight: Noel suffered an ankle sprain and the Sixers have no reason to push him before he is ready. Henry Sims will likely return to the starting lineup.
Brandon Davies, F11/6/2014 9:26:00 AM
Description: Sixers power forward Brandon Davies is already moved into a starting role and if Nerlens Noel's ankle injury keeps him out for any length of time, Davies could become a viable fantasy option.
Insight: Davies scored 20 points Wednesday night with four rebounds, one assist and a steal in 29 minutes. He could soon crack the 30-minute mark.
Tony Wroten, G11/5/2014 9:32:00 PM
Description: 76ers guard Tony Wroten scored a team-high 27 points against the Magic on Wednesday.
Insight: Wroten shot 4-of-6 from the 3-point line, making nine field goals overall. He also had eight assists, but he hurt fantasy owners with nine turnovers as well.
Nerlens Noel, C11/5/2014 8:43:00 PM
Description: 76ers center Nerlens Noel left Wednesday's game against the Magic.
Insight: Noel suffered an ankle sprain and will not return. We will keep you posted with updates.
Michael Carter-Williams, G11/5/2014 6:38:00 PM
Description: 76ers point guard Michael Carter-Williams plans to practice on Thursday according to Calkins Media.
Insight: Carter-Williams hopes to return next week against Dallas on Nov. 13, but even when he returns, he likely won't average 30 minutes per game right away. It will take at least a few games to get back to where he was at the end of last season.
Brandon Davies, F11/5/2014 6:35:00 PM
Description: Sixers power forward Brandon Davies will start against the Magic on Wednesday.
Insight: Davies scored 13 points on Tuesday, and Henry Sims has been struggling, so coach Brett Brown has made the switch. Fantasy owners in deeper leagues should grab Davies over Sims.
Brandon Davies, F11/4/2014 2:47:00 PM
Description: Sixers backup PF Brandon Davies may get a chance to start more often after starter Nerlens Noel indicated he's more comfortable in the middle.
Insight: Davies would play at the power forward spot. He scored 13 points with four rebounds and three assists Tuesday in a rare start that could become a recurring option.
Nerlens Noel, C11/3/2014 9:34:00 PM
Description: 76ers center Nerlens Noel somehow grabbed only rebound on Monday.
Insight: He played well other than that, totaling 10 points, five assists, six steals, one block, and three turnovers. Owners should expect Noel's rebounding numbers to improve quickly.
Tony Wroten, G11/3/2014 9:32:00 PM
Description: 76ers guard Tony Wroten scored 20 points in Monday's loss to Houston.
Insight: He also had five rebounds, five assists, five steals, and five turnovers. As long as Michael Carter-Williams is out of the lineup, Wroten will have the opportunity to put up nice numbers.
Brandon Davies, F11/3/2014 12:05:00 PM
Description: Sixers backup PF Brandon Davies would likely start if Henry Sims isn't ready to go Monday.
Insight: Davies would play at the power forward spot and Nerlens Noel would shift to center. Davies has 18 points against Miam in 24 minutes and 12 points in 18 minutes against Indiana. If he gets minutes he could be a useful low-end value.
Henry Sims, C11/3/2014 11:39:00 AM
Description: 76ers center Henry Sims will be a game-time decision after missing the morning shootaround due to an upper respiratory infection.
Insight: Sims is averaging 8.7 ppg, 5.3 rpg and has yet to show up he can be a consistent rebounder, much less a double-double guy needed to be a fantasy asset.
Tony Wroten, G11/1/2014 9:50:00 PM
Description: 76ers guard Tony Wroten led the 76ers in scoring during the team's home opener.
Insight: Wroten had a double-double with 21 points and 10 assists. He is getting to the line a lot and made 8-of-11 free throws. He is the best fantasy option on the 76ers.
Nerlens Noel, C11/1/2014 9:02:00 AM
Description: 76ers center Nerlens Noel had a double-double in Friday's loss to the Bucks.
Insight: He had 14 points and 10 rebounds, along with three blocks and a steal. Noel also shot 7-of-11 from the field. Owners should be extremely pleased with that performance.
Alexey Shved, GHot10/31/2014 12:24:00 PM
Description: Sixers point guard Alexey Shved played very well in the opener and on this weak Philadelphia roster should continue to see plenty of playing time.
Insight: Shved posted 18 points and five assists in just 24 minutes. He was 3-of-6 from beyond the arc and fantasy owners should keep an eye on him. If he sees the same workload or more he'd be a useful bench addition.
Tony Wroten, G10/29/2014 9:42:00 PM
Description: 76ers guard Tony Wroten had a solid opening night.
Insight: He was filling in for the injured Michael Carter-Williams, and posted a nice stat line. Wroten was 9-of-21 for 22 points, while also adding seven assists, eight rebounds, and three steals. Once MCW returns from injury, Wroten will move back to the bench, but as long as he continues to see minutes, he will be able to provide numbers for fantasy owners.
Nerlens Noel, C10/29/2014 9:40:00 PM
Description: 76ers center Nerlens Noel posted 10 rebounds and three blocks in his NBA debut.
Insight: He had a poor shooting night, going 2-for-11 from the field and 2-for-6 from the line, for his six points. Owners will have to deal with poor offensive nights from Noel, but it is nice to see him produce in the rebounding and shot-blocking department, early on.
Jason Richardson, SG10/25/2014 7:16:00 PM
Description: 76ers guard Jason Richardson (knee, foot) is out indefinitely with a stress fracture in his right foot.
Insight: He is now a longshot to play this season, after missing all of 2013-14. Even if he is able to suit up at all, Richardson is not fantasy-relevant.
Tony Wroten, G10/24/2014 7:34:00 PM
Description: 76ers guard Tony Wroten does a little bit of everything but nothing all that well.
Insight: Wroten will likely average over 11 PPG, close to three rebounds and assists per game and nearly a steal per game. He won't lite up any one category. Keep in mind, Wroten is also a very poor free-throw shooter. He shot 64.1 percent from the line last season.
Henry Sims, C10/24/2014 7:31:00 PM
Description: 76ers center Henry Sims is a double-double threat on most nights.
Insight: Sims averaged 12.1 PPG and 7.0 RPG in 25 games last season. The 76ers will be bad, but someone has to grab some stats. Sims will accumulate some numbers playing on a bad Philadelphia team.
K.J. McDaniels, F10/24/2014 7:28:00 PM
Description: The Sports Network's projections have rookie K.J. McDaniels as the 76ers second leading scorer in 2014-2015.
Insight: McDaniels was quite the scorer at Clemson, averaging 17.1 PPG while also chipping in 7.1 RPG, 2.8 BPG and 1.1 SPG. The rookie has already showcased his blocking ability through the preseason. Coach Brett Brown is a defensive coach, so he will likely start McDaniels for defense, which will allow him to contribute in other areas in fantasy.
Nerlens Noel, C10/24/2014 7:24:00 PM
Description: 76ers center Nerlens Noel is 100 percent over his torn ACL and will get all the minutes he can handle this season.
Insight: The 76ers will be awful this season, but Noel will accumulate blocks, steals and rebounds right away. His long-term potential also has him as a 20-point scorer, but right out of the gate, we expect him to sit more around the 10 PPG mark.
Michael Carter-Williams, G10/24/2014 7:20:00 PM
Description: 76ers point guard Michael Carter-Williams will be the team's top offensive weapon once he returns to the court.
Insight: Carter-Williams had surgery over the offseason to repair his left shoulder. He is targeting Nov. 13 as his return. Carter-Williams does not shoot a high percentage, just 40.5 percent from the field, 26.4 percent from behind the arc, and 70.3 percent from the free-throw line, but he will accumulate points, rebounds, assists and steals to be a quality fantasy guard.
Nerlens Noel, C10/24/2014 10:13:00 AM
Description: 76ers center Nerlens Noel still lacks an offensive game, but fantasy owners should take note of his game Wednesday.
Insight: Noel shot just 3-of-10, but pulled down eight rebounds, blocked five shots and added five steals. That's the kind of line fantasy owners like to see.
Michael Carter-Williams, G10/23/2014 3:48:00 PM
Description: Philadelphia point guard Michael Carter-Williams (shoulder surgery) is targeting a mid-November return, according to Jeff Goodman of ESPN.
Insight: Carter-Williams had surgery over the offseason to repair his left shoulder. He won the Rookie of the Year with averages of 16.7 points, 0.8 3-pointers, 6.2 rebounds, 6.3 assists and 1.9 steals per game. This timetable would have him missing 7-10 games.
Nerlens Noel, C10/10/2014 8:47:00 PM
Description: 76ers center Nerlens Noel did not play on Friday due to a right thigh issue.
Insight: The 76ers held Noel out on Friday for precautionary reasons. Noel is listed as day-to-day. He should be one of the first rookies selected in fantasy drafts. With his shot-block ability, Noel has No. 1 center potential.
Nerlens Noel, C10/8/2014 11:01:00 PM
Description: 76ers center Nerlens Noel made 5-of-13 shots, scoring 10 points, and also had nine rebounds, three assists and three blocks in 31 minutes of Wednesday's preseason game against the Hornets.
Insight: Noel likely benefitted from the matchup against Al Jefferson on Wednesday. Jefferson is know for playing very little defense. The numbers from Wednesday are much better than Noel's numbers from the first preseason game. With the lack of scoring elsewhere on the 76ers and lack of depth at the center position, Noel is a possible No. 1 center in fantasy.
Hollis Thompson, G/F10/8/2014 9:13:00 PM
Description: Philadelphia G/F Hollis Thompson suffered a corneal abrasion in his left eye and is out on Wednesday according to Comcast Sports Net.
Insight: Most of the time, this type of injury is minor, but other players have missed significant time from it. If he missing significant time, K.J. McDaniels and Alexey Shved will see more playing time.
Michael Carter-Williams, G8/27/2014 1:59:00 PM
Description: Philadelphia point guard Michael Carter-Williams (shoulder surgery) has not yet been cleared for five-on-five workouts with contact, according to 76ers GM Sam Hinkie.
Insight: Carter-Williams had surgery over the offseason to repair his left shoulder. He missed 12 games his rookie season, but won the Rookie of the Year with averages of 16.7 points, 0.8 3-pointers, 6.2 rebounds, 6.3 assists and 1.9 steals per game. If he can stay healthy, he should be a reliable point guard option especially in leagues that have no penalty for turnovers.
Nerlens Noel, C7/5/2014 3:42:00 PM
Description: Philadelphia center Nerlens Noel gave Sixers fans and fantasy owners a first glimpse of his ability in Saturday's summer league contest.
Insight: The 20-year-old, who sat out the entire season after ACL surgery, played 26 minutes and posted 19 points, two rebounds, three assists, four steals and a block. Most important he looked healthy. He could see plenty of court time in 2014 and could end up being a mid-round fantasy value.
Joel Embiid, C6/26/2014 9:02:00 PM
Description: The Sixers took a chance on Kansas center Joel Embiid with the third pick in Thursday's NBA Draft.
Insight: Embiid was supposed to go No. 1 to Cleveland but the Cavs were scared away by his foot injury. When Embiid gets healthy, he and Nerlens Noel will form one of the league's best young low post duos.
Michael Carter-Williams, G5/6/2014 7:14:00 PM
Description: Philadelphia point guard Michael Carter-Williams underwent surgery to repair the labrum of his right shoulder, according to the Delaware County Daily Times.
Insight: Carter-Williams was named NBA Rookie of the Year on Monday. The NBA season took its toll on MCW, costing him 12 games due to a left foot bruise, a knee infection and a sore shoulder. However, he finished strong with averages of 17.8 points on .512 shooting, 7.6 rebounds, 6.4 assists and 1.5 steals over his last 10 games. With two picks in the lottery, the 76ers' roster should be much improved next season as Carter-Williams tries to improve upon his 16.7 ppg on .405 shooting, 6.2 rebounds, 6.3 assists and 1.9 steals per game.
Michael Carter-Williams, G5/5/2014 6:13:00 PM
Description: Sixers point guard Michael Carter-Williams was announced Monday as the NBA's 2013-14 Rookie of the Year. SOURCE: NBA.com
Insight: He's only the third rookie in NBA history to average at least 16 points, six rebounds and six assists. MCW isn't a good shooter (40.5 percent) and he can be a bit turnover-prone (3.5 turnovers per game) but his versatility still makes him a strong fantasy asset. At age 22, he's only going to get better.
Tony Wroten, G4/14/2014 9:53:00 PM
Description: Philadelphia guard Tony Wroten had 20 points Monday against Boston.
Insight: Wroten has scored double-digit points in five straight games after failing to do so in his first four games back from an ankle injury.
Michael Carter-Williams, G4/13/2014 9:11:00 AM
Description: Philadelphia guard Michael Carter-Williams had another near triple-double Saturday in a loss to Charlotte.
Insight: MCW finished with 23 points, seven boards and eight assists. When Carter-Williams (16.7 ppg, 6.3 apg, 6.1 rpg, 1.9 spg) inevitably wins NBA Rookie of the Year, he'll be the highest draft pick to win the award since Mark Jackson in 1988.
Byron Mullens, F/C4/11/2014 1:19:00 PM
Description: Sixers F/C Byron Mullens (ankle) is probable for Friday's game against Memphis.
Insight: Mullens missed six straight games. He has averaged just 13.1 minutes per game with the 76ers, though that's nearly seven more than he was getting with the Clippers. He's got no fantasy value.
Henry Sims, CHot4/9/2014 10:02:00 PM
Description: Philadelphia center Henry Sims had another big game Wednesday at Toronto, putting up 22 points, eight rebounds and one block.
Insight: Sims has hit his stride over the past 10 games, averaging 15.8 points and 8.7 rebounds per game.
Nerlens Noel, C4/9/2014 11:35:00 AM
Description: Sixers center Nerlens Noel says he's 100 percent healthy, though he doesn't expect to play in any of Philadelphia's final five regular season games. SOURCE: Courier Times
Insight: The almost 20-year-old (his birthday's tomorrow) is now 14 months removed from ACL surgery. He should be the Sixers' starting center in 2014-15.
Byron Mullens, F/C4/2/2014 6:25:00 PM
Description: Sixers F/C Byron Mullens (ankle) will not play Wednesday, according to beat writer Tom Moore.
Insight: Mullens will miss his third straight game. He has averaged just 13.1 minutes per game with the 76ers, though that's nearly seven more than he was getting with the Clippers.
Tony Wroten, G3/29/2014 12:04:00 PM
Description: Philadelphia guard Tony Wroten expects to return Saturday against the Pistons. SOURCE: Brian Seltzer, 97.5 The Fanatic
Insight: A sprained ankle has kept him out for the last three games. The Sixers have a chance to make history tonight: another loss would give them 27 in a row, the longest losing streak in NBA history.
Henry Sims, C3/27/2014 10:31:00 PM
Description: Philadelphia center Henry Sims has scored at least 10 points in four straight games.
Insight: Sims had 18 points, six rebounds, one block and one steal Thursday at Houston and has averaged 10.9 points, 7.4 rebounds, 2.4 rebounds, 1.1 steals and 0.7 blocks over his last 13 games.
James Anderson, SG3/27/2014 10:28:00 PM
Description: Sixers swingman James Anderson had 30 points on 11-of-18 shooting (6-11 3PT) Thursday at Houston.
Insight: Anderson has scored 66 points on 23-of-34 shooting (12-19 3PT) in two games against the Rockets, the team that waived him last July, this season. He's had just one other game with 20+ points in 2013-14.
Byron Mullens, F/C3/27/2014 9:20:00 PM
Description: Sixers F/C Byron Mullens left Thursday's game with a sprained left ankle.
Insight: Mullens is done for the night. He has averaged just 13.7 minutes per game since the Clippers shipped him to Philadelphia.
Tony Wroten, G3/27/2014 10:45:00 AM
Description: 76ers guard Tony Wroten (13.4 ppg, 3.3 rpg, 2.8 apg) sprained his ankle last Friday and will not try to return until Saturday at the earliest.
Insight: Hollis Thompson (5.8 ppg) has started in his place, but has not shown to be fantasy worthy.
Nerlens Noel, C3/27/2014 10:38:00 AM
Description: Philadelphia center Nerlens Noel (torn ACL) was part of a 4-on-4 scrimmage and impressed, according to a Delco Times report.
Insight: Noel still won't play this season, but if he's as good as expected and the Sixers draft well they could make a quick turnaround from their current disastrous season.
Henry Sims, C3/22/2014 10:43:00 PM
Description: Philadelphia center Henry Sims has logged two straight double-doubles.
Insight: Sims had 18 points, 15 boards and two blocks in 31 minutes Saturday at Chicago. He has averaged 26.4 minutes, 10.4 points, 7.5 rebounds, 2.0 assists, 1.0 steals and 0.7 blocks over his last 11 games.
Thaddeus Young, FHot3/22/2014 10:37:00 PM
Description: With 28 points Saturday at Chicago, Philadelphia forward Thaddeus Young had his sixth straight contest with at least 20 points.
Insight: The 76ers have something in common with fantasy owners: both don't care about wins and losses. Young has produced 21.5 ppg, 5.8 rpg, 3.8 apg, 2.7 spg and 1.7 3pg in 15 games since the team traded Spencer Hawes and Evan Turner at the trade deadline. Of course, the Sixers have compiled 24 straight losses.
Michael Carter-Williams, G3/21/2014 10:12:00 PM
Description: Sixers point guard Michael Carter-Williams nearly had a triple-double Friday against the Knicks.
Insight: His final stat line featured 22 points, 13 boards and nine assists. In March, he's averaged 15.8 ppg, 9.1 rpg and 6.5 apg in 11 contests. Philadelphia's losing streak is now at 23 in a row.
Tony Wroten, G3/21/2014 9:55:00 PM
Description: 76ers guard Tony Wroten sprained his ankle Friday in a loss to New York. He's already been ruled out for the team's upcoming three-game road trip. SOURCE: Chris Vito, Delaware County Daily Times
Insight: That means the earliest he could play again is next Saturday against the Pistons. Expect Hollis Thompson (5.8 ppg) to start in his place.
James Anderson, SG3/21/2014 5:52:00 PM
Description: Sixers swingman James Anderson will return to the lineup Friday after missing the last two games with a bruised thigh. SOURCE: Tom Moore, Bucks County Courier Times
Insight: Tony Wroten (13.5 ppg) will remain in the starting lineup with Hollis Thompson (5.8 ppg) heading back to the bench. Anderson's scoring average in March (12.5 ppg in eight contests) is his highest of the season.
James Anderson, SG3/21/2014 10:30:00 AM
Description: Philadelphia G/F James Anderson will be a game-time decision for Friday versus the Knicks.
Insight: He's missed the past two games with a bruised thigh. Anderson's spot in the lineup will be absorbed by Tony Wroten so both will have their fantasy value determined just before tipoff.
Michael Carter-Williams, G3/19/2014 10:39:00 PM
Description: Philadelphia point guard Michael Carter-Williams delivered 17 points on 7-of-16 shooting Wednesday in a loss to the Bulls.
Insight: But more importantly, he had nine rebounds and seven assists, putting him within striking distance of his third triple-double of the season. Wednesday was the Sixers' 22nd loss in a row. That's a new franchise record.
James Anderson, SG3/19/2014 5:44:00 PM
Description: Philadelphia G/F James Anderson won't be available Wednesday against Chicago. SOURCE: Keith Pompey, Philly Inquirer
Insight: It's the second game he's missed with a bruised thigh. Anderson's spot in the lineup will be absorbed by Tony Wroten. Wroten is averaging 18.3 ppg as a starter this season.
Tony Wroten, G3/17/2014 2:38:00 PM
Description: Sixers guard Tony Wroten should get the start with James Anderson sidelined.
Insight: Wroten has made 13 starts this season averaging a solid 18.4 points, 4.5 rebounds, 5.2 assists and 1.3 steals. That's fantasy worthy.
James Anderson, SG3/17/2014 10:59:00 AM
Description: Sixers swingman James Anderson bruised his right quadriceps Saturday in a loss to Memphis and is expected to miss Monday's game against Indiana.
Insight: He's not expected to travel with the team to Indiana. Prior to Saturday's 2-for-11 outing, Anderson had been averaging 16.2 ppg over his last five games.

Description: Sixers swingman James Anderson bruised his thigh Saturday in a loss to Memphis. SOURCE: Philly.com
Insight: He's not expected to travel with the team to Indiana. Prior to Saturday's 2-for-11 outing, Anderson had been averaging 16.2 ppg over his last five games.
Thaddeus Young, F3/15/2014 10:10:00 PM
Description: Philadelphia forward Thad Young had another brilliant outing Saturday against Memphis (20 points, seven rebounds, six steals).
Insight: Of course, the result was the same as the Sixers lost for the 20th time in a row. The four three-pointers Young hit were his most since December 28th against Phoenix. It doesn't get any easier for the Sixers as their next game is Monday against the conference-leading Pacers.
Thaddeus Young, FHot3/14/2014 9:50:00 PM
Description: Sixers power forward Thaddeus Young has averaged 20.6 ppg, 5.7 rebounds, 4.7 assists and 2.6 steals in 10 games since the trade deadline.
Insight: The 76ers traded Evan Turner, Spencer Hawes and Lavoy Allen at the deadline, leaving Young as one of the only competent players left on the roster. He has taken advantage of the larger role. In 45 minutes Friday against the Pacers, Young had 25 points, 10 assists, six rebounds and three steals.
James Anderson, SGHot3/12/2014 10:03:00 PM
Description: Philadelphia shooting guard James Anderson has produced 17.5 ppg, 4.0 3pg, 3.0 rpg and 2.3 apg his last four games.
Insight: Anderson had 17 points, three assists, two rebounds and five triples in 31 minutes Wednesday against Sacramento. His long-range shot has really come along over his last 11 games as he has made 2.8 threes per game in that span. He made just 1.1 threes per game with a .299 3P% his first 53 games.
Henry Sims, C3/12/2014 10:01:00 PM
Description: Philadelphia center Henry Sims had 20 points, 10 rebounds, three assists, three steals and two blocks in 31 minutes Wednesday against the Kings.
Insight: Sims hasn't come close to this production before, but he did score in double figures in three of his last four games prior to Wednesday and has averaged 1.2 steals and 1.0 blocks in March.
Nerlens Noel, C3/12/2014 1:57:00 PM
Description: Philadelphia center Nerlens Noel (torn ACL) is not expected to play this season. SOURCE: Marc Narducci, Philly Inquirer
Insight: He was hoping to return on April 4th so he could debut against his hometown Celtics but that was always a bit of a longshot. Noel is definitely a part of the team's plans, just not this season.
Nerlens Noel, C3/11/2014 5:34:00 PM
Description: Sixers coach Brett Brown thinks practicing 5-on-5 by the end of the season is a realistic goal for Nerlens Noel (knee), according to beat writer Chris Vito.
Insight: Noel hasn't played since tearing his ACL at the University of Kentucky over a year ago, but a tweet he sent out Sunday indicated that he was targeting April 4 for a return. However, Brown's comments Tuesday suggest that the center won't be back this season.
Michael Carter-Williams, G3/10/2014 10:20:00 PM
Description: Sixers guard Michael Carter-Williams produced his second career triple-double Monday in a loss to New York.
Insight: Carter-Williams finished with 23 points, 13 boards and ten assists. As bad as the 76ers have been lately (17 straight losses), Carter-Williams is still a leading candidate for Rookie of the Year.
Nerlens Noel, C3/9/2014 9:30:00 PM
Description: Nerlens Noel hinted on his Twitter account that his Sixers debut could come April 4th against Boston.
Insight: Noel hasn't played since tearing his ACL at the University of Kentucky over a year ago. He's not a big time scorer but when healthy, Noel can be a dominant shot blocker. When Noel comes back, he'll likely be on a minutes limit.
Michael Carter-Williams, GCold3/8/2014 10:45:00 PM
Description: Philadelphia point guard Michael Carter-Williams has made just 21-of-72 (.292) from the field over his last five games.
Insight: MCW's shooting percentage slipped under 40 percent for the season during this recent slump. He made just 2-of-13 from the field and had four points Saturday against the Jazz, though he did add nine assists, seven rebounds and five steals.
Tony Wroten, GHot3/8/2014 10:42:00 PM
Description: Sixers guard Tony Wroten threw up 30 points with four steals in 31 minutes off the bench Saturday against Utah.

Description: Over his last five games, 76ers forward Thaddeus Young has averaged 24.6 points, 6.4 rebounds, 4.8 assists, 4.0 steals and 1.6 threes.
Insight: Young had 29 points, eight rebounds, three assists, three triples and two steals Sunday at Orlando. He ranks third in the NBA with 2.2 steals per game this season.
Tony Wroten, GHot2/26/2014 6:43:00 PM
Description: Sixers guard Tony Wroten will come off the bench Wednesday night, according to beat writer Tom Moore. Philadelphia will start James Anderson in his place.
Insight: The move won't change Wroten's fantasy value. With Evan Turner and Spencer Hawes gone, the 76ers have plenty of minutes to fill and Wroten is one of the only competent players they have. He has averaged 25.6 minutes, 15.2 points, 3.4 rebounds and 2.4 assists his last 10 games.
Danny Granger, SF2/25/2014 7:19:00 PM
Description: San Antonio would be a possible landing spot for Danny Granger if the Sixers buy him out. SOURCE: Marc Stein, ESPN
Insight: Most are expecting Granger (8.3 ppg, 3.6 rpg) to be waived by the Sixers within the next 24 hours. He wouldn't have a ton of fantasy value with the Spurs but at least he'd be playing again.
Thaddeus Young, FHot2/24/2014 10:10:00 PM
Description: The Sixers keep losing, but that hasn't stopped Thaddeus Young from putting up great numbers. He was brilliant again Monday in a loss to Milwaukee.
Insight: Young shot his way to 28 points in 34 minutes of court time. He also contributed seven assists, six steals and five rebounds. Young (17.5 ppg) is having his best season and needs to be starting in all formats.
Danny Granger, SF2/24/2014 7:18:00 PM
Description: The 76ers have agreed to buyout Danny Granger. SOURCE: Jake Pavorsky, SB Nation
Insight: Granger was dealt to the Sixers on Thursday but never ended up playing for them. He was averaging 8.3 ppg for the Pacers before they traded him.
Thaddeus Young, F2/21/2014 9:52:00 PM
Description: Sixers forward Thad Young had a night for the ages Friday against Dallas.
Insight: The Sixers still lost but at least this one was somewhat close (124-112). According to ESPN Stats and Information, Young is the first player to record at least 30 points, 13 rebounds, six assists and seven steals in a game since Hakeem Olajuwon did it in March of 1987. Young has another juicy matchup waiting for him Monday against the Bucks.
Danny Granger, SF2/21/2014 7:06:00 PM
Description: The Sixers are considering buying out the rest of Danny Granger's contract. SOURCE: Chris Vito, Delaware County Times
Insight: General manager Sam Hinkie was noncommital on the subject Friday though buying out Granger seems like it would be the right move. Granger was reportedly furious he was traded to Philadelphia and it's clear he wouldn't be part of the team's rebuilding process. Granger (8.3 ppg, 3.6 rpg) won't be in action Friday versus Dallas.
Danny Granger, SF2/20/2014 7:37:00 PM
Description: The Sixers landed Danny Granger Thursday as part of a three-player swap. SOURCE: Adrian Wojnarowski, Yahoo Sports
Insight: You have to feel for Granger here. After eight and a half years in Indiana, Granger (8.3 ppg, 3.6 rpg) goes from the best team in the Eastern Conference to the second-worst. It's actually good for fantasy owners though as Granger should see more playing time in Philly than he did with the Pacers.
Byron Mullens, F/C2/20/2014 7:16:00 PM
Description: The Clippers sent Byron Mullens to Philadelphia Thursday for a second-round pick. SOURCE: Brad Turner, Los Angeles Times
Insight: Heading to talent-starved Philly will certainly improve Mullens' fantasy potential. Though he barely played in Los Angeles, Mullens should have a significant role now that Spencer Hawes has been traded to Cleveland. If you're looking for a big man who can give you ten and five, Mullens seems like a no-brainer.
Henry Sims, C2/20/2014 12:06:00 PM
Description: Backup center Henry Sims was part of the trade to send Spencer Hawes to Cleveland and will play behind Lavoy Allen and Arnett Moultrie.
Insight: He might play a few more minutes in Philadelphia, but nothing worthy of attention from fantasy owners.
Thaddeus Young, F2/18/2014 10:09:00 PM
Description: The 76ers fell short again Tuesday against Cleveland. Don't point a finger at Thaddeus Young though. He finished with 15 points and nine rebounds.
Insight: Even with Philadelphia in complete disarray, Young continues to be a force in fantasy. Young and the struggling Sixers have a few days to regroup ahead of Friday's matchup with Dallas.
Hollis Thompson, G/F2/18/2014 6:05:00 PM
Description: Philadelphia G/F Hollis Thompson won't play Tuesday versus Cleveland. SOURCE: Jason Wolf, USA Today
Insight: He's still battling a sprained ankle. Keep in mind this guy plays for the Sixers. That should be enough to keep most fantasy owners away.
Hollis Thompson, G/F2/18/2014 11:11:00 AM
Description: Philadelphia swingman Hollis Thompson is questionable for Tuesday's game against Cleveland due to a sprained right ankle.
Insight: Thompson doesn't have any fantasy value (5.8 ppg, 3.5 rpg), but the impact of his absence would leave Evan Turner on the court for 30-plus minutes a game, making him more valuable.
Lavoy Allen, C2/18/2014 11:09:00 AM
Description: Philadelphia center Lavoy Allen is questionable for Tuesday's game against Cleveland while dealing with a sore left knee.
Insight: With Spencer Hawes and Thaddeus Young ahead of him on the depth chart, Allen's fantasy impact is minimal (5.1 ppg, 5.4 rpg, 1.2 apg).
Hollis Thompson, G/F2/12/2014 2:59:00 PM
Description: Philadelphia swingman Hollis Thompson won't be available Wednesday against Utah. SOURCE: Keith Pompey, Philly Inquirer
Insight: Thompson has been dealing with a sprained ankle. The bulk of his minutes will go to Elliot Williams (5.0 ppg). Neither player should be owned in fantasy.
Arnett Moultrie, F2/9/2014 3:11:00 PM
Description: Sixers backup PF Arnett Moultrie (ankle) will play Sunday night against the Clippers, making his season debut, according to Keith Pompey of the Philadelphia Inquirer.
Insight: Moultrie missed the entire season due to an ankle injury and conditioning issues. He averaged 9.4 points and 7.0 rebounds in his last five games last season but doesn't need to be added in fantasy leagues.
James Anderson, SG2/5/2014 8:52:00 PM
Description: Philadelphia shooting guard James Anderson bruised his back Wednesday against the Celtics. SOURCE: Keith Pompey, Philly Inquirer
Insight: His return is questionable. Anderson's absence should give second-year guard Tony Wroten (12.7 ppg) a chance to contribute.
Tony Wroten, G2/3/2014 11:50:00 PM
Description: Sixers guard Tony Wroten has scored 18 points in back-to-back games.
Insight: Wroten (12.7 ppg, 3.2 rpg, 3.1 apg) has played 24 minutes per game this season, mostly as a third guard and also as a fill-in for Michael Carter-Williams when the rookie missed time.
Michael Carter-Williams, G2/3/2014 11:48:00 PM
Description: Philadelphia point guard Michael Carter-Williams was a game-time decision Monday due to a shoulder injury, but he ended up playing 36 minutes and scoring 21 points against the Nets.
Insight: Sixers coach Brett Brown attributed the injury to the typical wear and tear of the NBA season, and resting him Monday would have been a strictly precautionary move by a team that is playing for the future.
Michael Carter-Williams, G2/3/2014 6:32:00 PM
Description: Philadelphia point guard Michael Carter-Williams will play on Monday against the Brooklyn Nets, according to coach Brett Brown. He’s dealing with a shoulder injury.
Insight: Sixers coach Brett Brown said the injury wasn't a result of one incident, but rather the regular wear and tear of the NBA season. The 76ers are playing for the future and have shown they have no problem sitting Carter-Williams to rest minor ailments, but it appears he will get on the floor tonight.
Michael Carter-Williams, G2/3/2014 4:10:00 PM
Description: SPhiladelphia point guard Michael Carter-Williams will be a game-time decision Monday against the Brooklyn Nets, according to csnphilly.com. He’s dealing with a shoulder injury.
Insight: Sixers coach Brett Brown said the injury wasn't a result of one incident, but rather the regular wear and tear of the NBA season. The 76ers are playing for the future and have shown they have no problem sitting Carter-Williams to rest minor ailments. Tony Wroten has been successful as a starter when Carter-Williams has been out this season.
Michael Carter-Williams, G2/1/2014 7:29:00 PM
Description: Sixers point guard Michael Carter-Williams won't be in the lineup Saturday against Detroit. SOURCE: Keith Pompey, Philly Inquirer
Insight: He's out with a sore shoulder. Backup point guard Tony Wroten played well when MCW was sidelined with a knee infection a couple months ago. If Wroten (12.4 ppg) is available on waivers, we'd recommend scooping him up now before someone else does.
Thaddeus Young, FHot1/31/2014 10:33:00 PM
Description: Sixers power forward Thaddeus Young closed out January with 29 points, eight rebounds, five steals and three triples Friday against Atlanta.
Insight: Young averaged 3.1 steals per game in January to go with 17.5 points and 5.5 rebounds.
Spencer Hawes, C1/29/2014 10:00:00 PM
Description: Philadelphia center Spencer Hawes' 20 points Wednesday at Boston were his most since Dec. 21.
Insight: He had his highest scoring game of January on Monday with 18 points, and he exceeded that total one game later. Hawes has averaged 12.4 points, 8.3 rebounds, 3.8 assists, 0.9 blocks, 0.9 steals and 1.6 threes this month.
Thaddeus Young, FHot1/25/2014 10:35:00 PM
Description: Sixers power forward Thaddeus Young flirted with a triple-double Saturday against the Thunder.
Insight: Young had 13 points, 10 rebounds and eight steals in the loss. After averaging 25.6 points on .559 shooting from Dec. 20 to Jan. 6, Young has cooled off considerably with just 13.6 ppg on .379 shooting his last 10 games. However, he has kept his fantasy value high by picking up 3.4 thefts per game in his last eight contests.
James Anderson, SG1/25/2014 10:01:00 PM
Description: Sixers guard James Anderson has accounted for 15 ppg his last three games.
Insight: His 19 points Saturday were his most since Dec. 3. Anderson (10.1 ppg, 3.9 rpg, 1.1 3pg, 0.9 spg) is only a fantasy option in deep leagues.
Tony Wroten, GCold1/25/2014 6:55:00 PM
Description: Sixers guard Tony Wroten (ankle) will return from a three-game absence Saturday against the Thunder, according to beat writer Tom Moore.
Insight: Wroten has averaged 13 ppg this season but just 10.7 ppg on 36.4 percent shooting his last 11 games.
Evan Turner, G/F1/22/2014 10:28:00 PM
Description: Evan Turner torched the Knicks for 34 points and 11 rebounds Wednesday in a 110-106 Sixers win.
Insight: Turner had 28 points combined in his previous three contests. It's good to see him get back on track after a rough stretch. Turner should be worth a start in his next game Friday against the Raptors.
Tony Wroten, G1/22/2014 1:31:00 PM
Description: Sixers guard Tony Wroten (ankle) is not expected to play Wednesday, according to Dei Lynam of csnphilly.com.
Insight: Wroten sat out Monday's game and was walking around Wednesday's shootaround with ice on his right ankle. Coach Brett Brown said Wroten is "highly unlikely" to play.
Evan Turner, SFCold1/21/2014 1:05:00 PM
Description: Philadelphia SG/SF Evan Turner could see time at backup PG, according to coach Brett Brown.
Insight: Turner has cracked the 20-point mark just once in the past eight games and putting the ball in his hands might be just the thing to break him out of the slump. Backup PG Tony Wroten figures to be sidelined for a while.
Michael Carter-Williams, G1/20/2014 6:54:00 PM
Description: Michael Carter-Williams had 31 of Philadelphia's 31 points Monday against the Wizards.
Insight: Carter-Williams is one of seven players in the NBA, along with Kevin Durant, LeBron James, Nicolas Batum, James Harden, Lance Stephenson and Russell Westbrook, averaging at least 5.0 rebounds and 5.0 assists per game. He's at 6.7 assists and 5.7 rebounds to go with 17.5 points, 2.5 steals, 1.0 threes and 0.6 blocks per game.
Brandon Davies, F1/20/2014 10:34:00 AM
Description: Sixers backup PF Brandon Davies dislocated his right pinky finger late in Saturday's game with Chicago and is questionable for Monday's game against Washington.
Insight: Davies has no fantasy value playing about 11 minutes per game and averaging 2.5 ppg and 2.0 rpg.
Tony Wroten, G1/20/2014 10:31:00 AM
Description: Sixers guard Tony Wroten exited Saturday's game against Chicago with a sprained left ankle and is expected to miss Monday's game against Washington.
Insight: The 76ers could be without both Wroten and James Anderson which will leave the team short-handed for Monday's game, but the remaining guards should see plenty of playing time.
James Anderson, SG1/20/2014 10:28:00 AM
Description: Sixers guard James Anderson is questionable for Monday's game against Washington after suffering a bruised back in Saturday's game with the Bulls.
Insight: Anderson has averaged 9.8 ppg and 4.2 rpg in 22 starts which isn't quite at a fantasy-worthy level.
Tony Wroten, G1/18/2014 9:07:00 PM
Description: Sixers guard Tony Wroten exited Saturday's game against Chicago with a sprained left ankle. SOURCE: Philadelphia News
Insight: He won't be returning. Wroten only managed two points and one rebound in his eight minutes of action. Hollis Thompson (5.6 ppg, 3.5 rpg) has come on to take his place.
Lavoy Allen, C1/18/2014 12:45:00 PM
Description: Philadelphia center Lavoy Allen has missed the past four games and is questionable for Saturday's game against Chicago.
Insight: Allen has been out with a strained calf. With Spencer Hawes ahead of him on the depth chart, Allen's fantasy impact is minimal (5.1 ppg, 5.4 rpg, 1.1 apg).
Spencer Hawes, C1/15/2014 9:40:00 PM
Description: Philadelphia center Spencer Hawes has averaged 16.7 points, 10.3 rebounds, 6.0 assists, 2.3 threes and 1.0 blocks over the last three games. He had 17 points, 14 rebounds, seven assists, three triples and one rejection Wednesday against Charlotte.
Insight: Hawes' production has fallen off from what he put up the first three weeks of the season, but he's still a very good fantasy center.
Evan Turner, SF1/15/2014 9:32:00 PM
Description: Philadelphia small forward Evan Turner had 23 points on 10-of-19 shooting with seven rebounds, four assists and one steal Wednesday against the Bobcats.
Insight: After averaging 21.5 ppg on 46.8 percent shooting his first 19 games, Turner has dropped off to 16.4 ppg on 41 percent shooting his last 18.

Description: 76ers center Nerlens Noel was cleared to resume basketball activities on Wednesday. SOURCE: Jeff Goodman, ESPN
Insight: Noel is hoping to make his NBA debut sometime in the next 4-to-6 weeks. It's been almost a year since he suffered a torn ACL while playing with the Kentucky Wildcats.
Lavoy Allen, C1/15/2014 2:18:00 PM
Description: Philadelphia center Lavoy Allen won't be in action Wednesday against the Bobcats. SOURCE: Chris Vito, Daily Times
Insight: Allen (5.1 ppg, 5.4 rpg) is out with a strained calf. With Spencer Hawes ahead of him on the depth chart, Allen's fantasy impact is minimal.
James Anderson, SG1/11/2014 10:13:00 PM
Description: Sixers guard James Anderson had 17 points, seven rebounds, one steal and one three Saturday against the Knicks.
Insight: Anderson has started two straight games and averaged 14 points, 6.8 rebounds and 2.0 steals over his last four.
Tony Wroten, G1/10/2014 1:14:00 PM
Description: Philadelphia guard Tony Wroten is questionable for Friday's game against Detroit due to flu-like symptoms/migraines.
Insight: He didn't even make the trip to Cleveland - his second consecutive games on the sidelines. Wroten (13.8 ppg, 3.3 apg, 3.6 rpg) has value when healthy.
Lavoy Allen, C1/10/2014 1:11:00 PM
Description: Sixers big man Lavoy Allen is questionable for Friday's game against Detroit while dealing with a strained right calf.
Insight: Allen has only totaled eight points and eight rebounds over his last three games. He has little fantasy value unless one of the Sixers' starters suffers an injury.
Michael Carter-Williams, G1/7/2014 9:30:00 PM
Description: Though it didn't come in a win, 76ers point guard Michael Carter-Williams produced a career-high 33 points Tuesday night against Cleveland.
Insight: A raw talent coming out of Syracuse, MCW has exceeded expectations as a rookie. He leads all first-year players in scoring (17.7 ppg), rebounding (5.7 rpg) and assists (7.1 apg).
Tony Wroten, G1/7/2014 5:45:00 PM
Description: Philadelphia guard Tony Wroten will miss his second game in a row Tuesday against the Cavaliers. SOURCE: Keith Pompey, Philadelphia Inquirer
Insight: He didn't even make the trip to Cleveland with his teammates. Wroten (13.8 ppg, 3.3 apg, 3.6 rpg) has been experiencing flu-like symptoms. Consider him day-to-day.
Tony Wroten, G1/7/2014 11:16:00 AM
Description: Sixers guard Tony Wroten (flu-like symptoms/migrane) is questionable for Tuesday's game against Cleveland.
Insight: He's proved to be a capable fill-in when Michael Carter-Williams has been out this season and has averaged 24 minutes, 13.9 points, 3.3 rebounds, 2.0 assists, 1.0 steals and 1.0 threes in seven games since MCW returned to the lineup. It's much tougher to start him when Carter-Williams is healthy, but not impossible.
Spencer Hawes, C1/6/2014 9:21:00 PM
Description: Over his last 18 games, 76ers center Spencer Hawes has averaged 12.5 points, 7.5 rebounds, 3.4 assists, 1.6 threes, 1.4 blocks and 0.7 steals per game.
Insight: That's still very good all-around production from a fantasy center, but it's a far cry from the 16.8 points, 10.3 rebounds, 1.6 blocks and 1.9 threes Hawes averaged over his first 14 games.
Tony Wroten, G1/6/2014 6:08:00 PM
Description: Sixers guard Tony Wroten (illness) will miss Monday's game against the Timberwolves, according to beat writer Chris Vito.
Insight: Wroten is dealing with flu-like symptoms and a migraine. He's proved to be a capable fill-in when Michael Carter-Williams has been out this season and has averaged 24 minutes, 13.9 points, 3.3 rebounds, 2.0 assists, 1.0 steals and 1.0 threes in seven games since MCW returned to the lineup.
Arnett Moultrie, F1/6/2014 10:25:00 AM
Description: Sixers backup PF Arnett Moultrie (ankle) went through his first full practice last week, according to beat writer Christopher Vito.
Insight: Philadelphia needs big man minutes, so when he is ready, coach Brett Brown will likely get him in the rotation right away. However, he'll never be fantasy worthy.
Michael Carter-Williams, G1/6/2014 10:20:00 AM
Description: Philadelphia rookie Michael Carter-Williams is probable for Monday's game against Minnesota.
Insight: MCW took a blow to the head at the end of Saturday's win over Portland, but it appears he didn't suffer a concussion and is ready to go Monday night. The 22-year-old is a leading candidate for ROY averaging 17.2 ppg, 5.7 rpg, 7.2 apg.
Michael Carter-Williams, G1/5/2014 10:00:00 AM
Description: Philadelphia rookie Michael Carter-Williams left Saturday's game against Portland due to a head injury.
Insight: The "C" word, concussion, wasn't mentioned so perhaps he avoided it. So far, Carter-Williams has been a fantasy stud averaging 17.2 ppg, 5.7 rpg, 7.2 apg, 2.9 spg, 1.1 threes per contest.
Thaddeus Young, FHot1/4/2014 10:42:00 AM
Description: Sixers power forward Thaddeus Young has averaged 25.8 points, 8.7 rebounds, 2.7 assists, 3.0 steals, 0.8 blocks and 2.2 threes over his last six games.
Insight: Young reportedly requested a trade in late December and his trade value is at an all-time high. The same goes for his fantasy value. Young is averaging a career-high 17.9 ppg as well as 7.0 rebounds, 1.8 assists and 1.7 steals. He's added 3-point range to his arsenal this season, hitting 41.2 percent of his 2.3 attempts per game after making 33.2 percent on 0.8 attempts his first six seasons.
Michael Carter-Williams, G12/29/2013 10:28:00 AM
Description: Philadelphia rookie Michael Carter-Williams came on strong with 27 points, six rebounds and six assists Saturday against Phoenix.
Insight: MCW also padded his league-leading steal total with four more thefts. It looks like the 22-year-old has a bright future in Philly. So far, Carter-Williams leads all rookies in scoring (18.1 ppg), rebounding (5.5 rpg) and assists (7.7 apg).
Thaddeus Young, FHot12/29/2013 10:24:00 AM
Description: Sixers power forward Thaddeus Young turned in a second consecutive 30 point/10 rebound outing Saturday in a loss at Phoenix.
Insight: Young made headlines about a week ago when it was reported he had requested a trade. Young later refuted the claim and has now scored 25 or more in each of his last three contests. Fantasy owners can't afford to sit Young while he's this hot. Make sure he's in your lineup Sunday against the Lakers.
Evan Turner, SF12/28/2013 7:52:00 PM
Description: Philadelphia small forward Evan Turner (sore knee) will not play Saturday, according to Bob Cooney of the Philadelphia Daily News.
Insight: Sixers coach Brett Brown expects Turner to play Sunday night, but he also expected him to play Saturday and he wasn't able to go. The 25-year-old is averaging a career-high 19.3 ppg, 6.6 rpg, 4.0 apg and 1.0 spg.

Evan Turner, SF12/20/2013 10:11:00 PM
Description: Sixers G/F Evan Turner made 13-of-22 from the field, including the game-winner as time expired in overtime, and had 29 points, 10 rebounds and five assists Friday against the Nets.
Insight: Turner averaged 21.5 ppg over his first 19 games of the season, but his average dropped to 13.3 ppg over his previous seven games. His swoon coincided with Michael Carter-Williams' seven-game absence due to a knee injury and his big game Friday came in MCW's first game back in the lineup.
Michael Carter-Williams, G12/20/2013 11:59:00 AM
Description: Sixers guard Michael Carter-Williams will play in Friday's game versus Brooklyn, according to 76ers beat writer Christopher Vito.
Insight: He's practiced fully the last two days and looks ready to go after missing seven games with a knee infection. When healthy, Carter-Williams (17.7 ppg, 7.3 apg, 5.8 rpg) has been the most productive rookie in the NBA this season.
Thaddeus Young, F12/19/2013 4:56:00 PM
Description: Philadelphia forward Thaddeus Young has requested a trade from the 76ers, according to SB Nation's libertyballers.com.
Insight: Young actually submitted a formal trade request weeks ago. "Thad is ready to leave Philly," a source close to Young said. "He isn't with the whole tanking thing." Young is averaging 33 minutes, 15.8 points, 6.6 rebounds and 1.3 steals per game this season but his playing time may dip depending on where he lands.

Insight: He's practiced fully the last two days and looks ready to go after missing seven games with a knee infection. When healthy, Carter-Williams (17.7 ppg, 7.3 apg, 5.8 rpg) has been the most productive rookie in the NBA this season.
Michael Carter-Williams, G12/18/2013 6:07:00 PM
Description: Philadelphia rookie Michael Carter-Williams (knee) was a full participant in practice Wednesday, but coach Brett Brown says he is, "Not sure," if MCW will play Friday against Brooklyn.
Insight: A skin infection on Carter-Williams' right knee has kept him out for the last seven games. He's been a top fantasy option when healthy and still is the frontrunner for the NBA Rookie of the Year.
Michael Carter-Williams, G12/16/2013 11:54:00 AM
Description: Philadelphia rookie Michael Carter-Williams will miss his seventh straight game Monday versus Brooklyn.
Insight: A skin infection on his right knee has kept him out for the last six games. Tony Wroten has played well in his absence so the Sixers aren't rushing Carter-Williams back into action.
Tony Wroten, GHot12/16/2013 9:50:00 AM
Description: Philadelphia backup point guard Tony Wroten may have a future even when Michael carter-Williams returns to the lineup.
Insight: According to a report in the Delco Times, 76ers coach Brett Brown wants to put them both on the floor at the same time with Wroten at shooting guard. If you haven't picked him up, (he's owned in just 27 percent of Yahoo leagues) this might be a good time to take a flier on him.
Tony Wroten, GHot12/14/2013 10:34:00 PM
Description: Philadelphia guard Tony Wroten had 18 points, seven assists, six rebounds and two threes Saturday against Portland.
Insight: Michael Carter-Williams is the frontrunner for NBA Rookie of the Year, but his injuries have allowed the 20-year-old Wroten to show what he can do. He's averaging 18.9 points, 5.5 assists and 5.1 rebounds in his 10 starts this season.
Michael Carter-Williams, G12/14/2013 10:49:00 AM
Description: We wouldn't expect to see Philadelphia rookie Michael Carter-Williams Saturday against Portland.
Insight: A skin infection on his right knee has kept him out for the last five games. Tony Wroten has played well in his absence so the Sixers won't need to rush Carter-Williams back into action.
Michael Carter-Williams, G12/11/2013 1:27:00 PM
Description: According to ESPN, 76ers coach Brett Brown said after Wednesday's shootaround that PG Michael Carter-Williams (knee) will miss his fourth straight game Wednesday at Minnesota.
Insight: Carter-Williams is dealing with a bacterial skin infection in his right knee. He traveled with the team for its two-game road trip and will continue to do so but won't play until his infection is gone and his knee has healed. That leaves him without a definitive return date. Tony Wroten has put up fantasy-worthy numbers as a starter this season and should be added in most leagues for a short-term boost.

Insight: Carter-Williams has a bacterial skin infection in his knee and just spent four days in the hospital. He rejoined the team Monday but was limping during shootaround and should be considered questionable for Wednesday's game. Replacement Tony Wroten has averaged 36.5 minutes, 19.8 points, 5.3 assists, 4.8 rebounds and 1.5 steals in six starts this season.

Description: Sixers point guard Michael Carter-Williams is questionable for Monday's game against the LA Clippers with a bacterial infection on right knee.

Insight: Obviously, Carter-Williams won't be playing Saturday against Denver. Backup point guard Tony Wroten will be worth rostering if this ends up being a lengthy absence for the rookie out of Syracuse.
Thaddeus Young, F12/7/2013 7:49:00 PM
Description: Philadelphia power forward Thaddeus Young is playing Saturday versus Denver. SOURCE: Tom Moore, Bucks County Courier Times
Insight: Young was a game-time call because of a sore glute muscle. He's averaging almost 16 ppg this season. Lavoy Allen would see most of the playing time at the four if Young were to get re-injured.

Description: Philadelphia guard Tony Wroten had 21 points, nine assists, eight rebounds, one steal and one block in 35 minutes Friday at Charlotte.

Insight: Carter-Williams (17.7 ppg, 5.8 rpg, 7.3 apg, 3.1 spg, 1.5 threes per contest) did not travel with the team to Charlotte. Tony Wroten, who has averaged 19.5 points, 5.5 assists, 4.0 rebounds and 2.0 steals in four starts this season, will start in MCW's place Friday.
Michael Carter-Williams, G12/5/2013 1:23:00 PM
Description: Philadelphia point guard Michael Carter-Williams should be downgraded to doubtful after limping through Thursday's practice.
Insight: Carter-Williams (17.7 ppg, 5.8 rpg, 7.3 apg, 3.1 spg, 1.5 threes per contest) has been a huge fantasy asset, but it looks like he'll be in and out of the lineup for a while.

Description: Philadelphia point guard Michael Carter-Williams has been playing through a right knee injury. SOURCE: Christopher Vito, Delaware County Daily Times
Insight: Carter-Williams admitted after Tuesday's game that his knee isn't feeling 100 percent, claiming he first injured it Sunday against Detroit. If MCW can't go Friday versus Charlotte, Tony Wroten would get the start at point guard.
Michael Carter-Williams, G12/3/2013 10:26:00 PM
Description: Sixers guard Michael Carter-Williams notched his first career triple-double Tuesday in an overtime win over Orlando.
Insight: He finished with 27 points, 12 rebounds and ten assists. It's the first triple-double by a 76ers rookie since Andre Iguodala had one in 2005. Fantasy owners can't be thrilled with all the turnovers (seven on Tuesday) but overall, Carter-Williams' career is off to an impressive start.
Thaddeus Young, F11/29/2013 7:00:00 PM
Description: Sixers forward Thaddeus Young will return to the starting lineup after coming off the bench on Wednesday. SOURCE: Tom Moore, Bucks County Courier Times
Insight: He was terrific Wednesday after missing three games for personal reasons (26 points on 9-of-15 shooting). He's averaging 32.1 mpg this season and should see at least that much playing time against the Pelicans on Friday night.
Spencer Hawes, C11/29/2013 6:58:00 PM
Description: 76ers center Spencer Hawes will return from a two-game absence Friday night against the Pelicans. SOURCE: Tom Moore, Bucks County Courier Times

Tony Wroten, G11/29/2013 6:51:00 PM
Description: Philadelphia guard Tony Wroten will be active for Friday's game against Toronto. SOURCE: Tom Moore, Bucks County Courier Times
Insight: Wroten (12.6 ppg, 3.2 rpg, 3.4 apg) had been questionable because of a strained back. He's having a strong season but we'd expect his production to fall a little now that Michael Carter-Williams is back from a foot injury.
Tony Wroten, G11/29/2013 11:44:00 AM
Description: Sixers guard Tony Wroten (strained back) is questionable for Friday's game against New Orleans.
Insight: Wroten (12.6 ppg, 3.4 apg) saw some run earlier in the year when Michael Carter-Williams was out with a foot injury. Now that MCW is back to 100 percent, Wroten shouldn't be much of a factor in fantasy even when healthy.
Spencer Hawes, C11/29/2013 11:43:00 AM
Description: Philadelphia center Spencer Hawes (knee) is questionable for Friday's game against New Orleans.
Insight: Hawes also missed Saturday's game. He's played well above expectations this season, averaging 16.8 pph and 10.3 rpg.
