    Philadelphia 76ers

    Position

    Name  Byron Mullens
    Born  2/14/1989
    Height  7-0
    Weight  275
    College  Ohio State
    4/11/2014 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.
     
    4/2/2014 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.
     
    3/27/2014 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.
     
    2/20/2014 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.
     
    7/20/2013 7:19:00 PM
    Description: Yahoo's Adrian Wojnarowski reports Byron Mullens has agreed to a two-year, $2 million deal with the Clippers.
    Insight: Mullens posted a career-high 10.6 ppg with the Bobcats in 2012-13. Of course, he did that while logging almost 27 minutes per game. He'd be lucky to get half of that this year in Los Angeles.
     
    6/28/2013 9:56:00 PM
    Description: Charlotte will allow forward/center Byron Mullens to pursue free agency. SOURCE: Rick Bonnell, Charlotte Observer
    Insight: That means the Bobcats aren't giving him a qualifying offer. If they had, the Bobcats would have been able to match any offers Mullens received from other teams. Instead they'll let Mullens walk while staking their future to rookie big man Cody Zeller from Indiana.
     
    4/15/2013 2:06:00 PM
    Description: Charlotte power forward Byron Mullens is doubtful for Monday's game against New York after suffering an elbow injury.
    Insight: Mullens lost his starting job to Josh McRoberts and has dealt with numerous injuries all season so will have little or no fantasy value for the remainder of the season.
     
    4/13/2013 10:55:00 AM
    Description: Charlotte power forward Byron Mullens is doubtful for Saturday's game against Milwaukee after suffering an elbow injury.
    Insight: Mullens lost his starting job to Josh McRoberts and has dealt with numerous injuries all season so will have little or no fantasy value for the remainder of the season.
     
    4/9/2013 11:36:00 AM
    Description: Charlotte power forward Byron Mullens is doubtful for Tuesday's game against Memphis after suffering an elbow injury four minutes into Saturday's game.
    Insight: Mullens lost his starting job to Josh McRoberts and has dealt with numerous injuries all season so will have little or no fantasy value for the remainder of the season.
     
    4/6/2013 8:07:00 PM
    Description: Charlotte power forward Byron Mullens is available for Saturday's game after five straight absences due to an ankle injury.
    Insight: Mullens lost his starting job to Josh McRoberts and has dealt with injuries all season so he has no fantasy value.
     
    4/6/2013 12:02:00 PM
    Description: Charlotte power forward Byron Mullens is expected to miss Saturday's game against Brooklyn. He's dealing with a sore left ankle.
    Insight: Mullens has already missed five games. Don't be surprised if Mullens misses the rest of the season with this injury.
     
    4/5/2013 11:44:00 AM
    Description: Charlotte power forward Byron Mullens is doubtful for Friday's game against Miami. He's dealing with a sore left ankle.
    Insight: Wednesday was Mullens' fourth DNP in a row. Don't be surprised if Mullens misses the rest of the season with this injury.
     
    4/3/2013 6:20:00 PM
    Description: Charlotte power forward Byron Mullens is still out with a sore ankle.
    Insight: Wednesday will be Mullens' fourth DNP in a row. Don't be surprised if Mullens misses the rest of the season with this injury.
     
    4/3/2013 2:05:00 PM
    Description: Bobcats forward Byron Mullens missed his third consecutive game Monday against Milwaukee due to a nagging ankle injury and is questionable for Wednesday's game against Philadelphia.
    Insight: Mullens had a huge February (14.6 ppg, 7.9 rpg), but his game has fallen on hard times in March primarily due to the ongoing injuries (6.4 ppg, 2.7 rpg). Josh McRoberts would start in Mullens' place. McRoberts put up eight points and 10 boards on Monday after a 15-point effort last Saturday.
     
    4/2/2013 10:40:00 AM
    Description: Bobcats forward Byron Mullens missed his third consecutive game Monday against Milwaukee due to a nagging ankle injury.
    Insight: Mullens had a huge February (14.6 ppg, 7.9 rpg), but his game has fallen on hard times in March primarily due to the ongoing injuries (6.4 ppg, 2.7 rpg). Josh McRoberts would start in Mullens' place, but he has limited fantasy value.
     
    4/1/2013 7:35:00 PM
    Description: Bobcats forward Byron Mullens will miss his third consecutive game Monday against Milwaukee. Mullens has been bothered by a nagging ankle injury.
    Insight: Josh McRoberts will start at the four in Mullens' place. He netted 15 points in his last start Saturday versus the Sixers.
     
    4/1/2013 11:03:00 AM
    Description: Charlotte forward Byron Mullens has missed the past two games with a sore left ankle and is questionable for Monday's game against Milwaukee.
    Insight: Ankle issues have hampered Mullens all season. Charlotte has little to play for and it's possible they could shut Mullens down for the year if his ankle woes continue.
     
    3/30/2013 7:34:00 PM
    Description: A sore left ankle will prevent Charlotte forward Byron Mullens from competing in Saturday night's game against the Sixers.
    Insight: He sat out Friday's game in New York so fantasy owners probably knew this was coming. Ankle issues have hampered Mullens all season. Charlotte has little to play for and it's possible they could shut Mullens down for the year if his ankle woes continue.
     
    3/30/2013 10:21:00 AM
    Description: Bobcats forward Byron Mullens (ankle) was scratched from Friday's game against the Knicks shortly before tipoff and is doubtful for Saturday against Philadelphia.
    Insight: Mullens is dealing with soreness in the same ankle he sprained earlier this season that cost him a month. He has dealt with a variety of injuries in March and lost his starting job to Josh McRoberts, so fantasy owners can move on.
     
    3/29/2013 7:37:00 PM
