News: Young could shift down and start at the small forward spot next season, Calkins Media reports.
Impact: With teams doing exit interviews, a lot of questions about next season are being asked. The Sixers are projected to have the second overall pick in this year's draft, and if they draft an impact player at power forward, there's the possibility that Young could move down to the three. Such a move would probably include Young taking even more three-pointers next season and possibly getting an extra assist or two per game, while his rebounds would likely decrease.
Thu. Apr 17, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Varnado expects to participate in Summer League action and receive an invitation to Sixers training camp in the fall, the Delaware County Daily Times reports.
Impact: After a 10-day audition with the Sixers in early March, Varnado was inked for the remainder of the season, with team options for three additional years. A sparse talent base allowed the second-year pro to garner double-digit minutes in 20 of his 23 outings with the team, and he was fairly steady, averaging 4.3 points (on 60 percent shooting), 2.7 rebounds, and 1.3 blocks in 14.7 minutes. If he returns, though, his presence behind Thaddeus Young, Nerlens Noel (knee), Byron Mullens, and any other big men brought into the frontcourt mix in the offseason would keep him relegated to the vast majority of waiver wires in 2014-15.
Wed. Apr 16, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Varnado scored eight points (3-5 FG, 2-2 FT) and had three rebounds in 16 minutes against Miami on Wednesday night.
Impact: Varnado missed Saturday's game against Charlotte, but was back to his reserve role to finish out the year.
Wed. Apr 16, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Thomas scored three points (1-2 FG, 1-2 3Pt) in five minutes against Miami on Wednesday night.
Impact: It was strange enough to see Thomas getting the starting nod in just his second game with the club. To top it off, the deep reserve on a 10-day contract played just five minutes.
Wed. Apr 16, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Young scored 20 points (9-17 FG, 0-3 3Pt, 2-2 FT) to go along with nine rebounds, two assists and two steals in 30 minutes against Miami on Wednesday night.
Impact: It was a tough year for the veteran Young, who pretty much had to deal with an exceptionally inexperienced team with no intentions of winning. He finished the year averaging 17.9 points per game — a career-high.
Wed. Apr 16, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Thomas will make his first career start Wednesday against the Heat, the Philadelphia Inquirer reports.
Impact: Thomas has appeared in just one game since signing a 10-day deal on April 7, but with nothing on the line for the Sixers, he'll enter the starting lineup for the first time. The move pushes Hollis Thompson to the bench.
Tue. Apr 15, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Carter-Williams has not attempted a three-pointer in any of his last six games.
Impact: If you're only fighting for three-pointers in your head-to-head matchup for Wednesday, it may be prudent to put in someone else in place of MCW, if you do not need his great contributions in points, rebounds, assists, and steals. Don't replace him hastily, but some players may benefit from at least considering the move.
Tue. Apr 15, 2014 | STATS
News: Wroten scored 20 points for the Sixers in their final home game of the season Monday.
Impact: He's averaging 13.2 points during a strong second NBA season.
Tue. Apr 15, 2014 | STATS
News: Carter-Williams had 21 points and 14 rebounds for the Sixers on Monday.
Impact: He's totaled 44 points in the last two games.
Mon. Apr 14, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Wroten scored 20 points (7-12 FG, 0-1 3Pt, 6-7 FT) to go along with four assists, two rebounds and two steals in 28 minutes Monday against the Celtics.
Impact: Wroten also had seven turnovers Monday but was still able to put together a very nice offensive performance. He has plenty of room to improve and could be an intriguing option for owners next season, if he continues to grow his game.
Mon. Apr 14, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Carter-Williams scored 21 points (9-13 FG, 3-4 FT) to go along with 14 rebounds, six assists, four steals and two blocks in 34 minutes Monday against the Celtics.
Impact: Carter-Williams put up a monster line Monday and continues to provide owners with plenty of value in his rookie campaign.
Mon. Apr 14, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Moultrie has served his five-game suspension for violating drug policies, and he'll be eligible to suit up for Monday's game against the Celtics.
Impact: Moultrie hasn't contributed much for the Sixers this season, and he'll have a negligible fantasy impact for the remainder of the year despite their hole at the center position.
Sun. Apr 13, 2014 | STATS
News: Jarvis Varnado injured his heel and was unable to play for Philadelphia on Saturday.
Impact: Varnado, who is averaging 4.0 points per game on the season, may return for the team's final two games.
Sat. Apr 12, 2014 | STATS
News: Michael Carter-Williams had 23 points and eight assists to lead Philadelphia on Saturday night.
Impact: Carter-Williams looks like the favorite for Rookie of the Year, as he leads all first-year players in scoring at 16.6 points per game.
Sat. Apr 12, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Mullens scored 13 points (6-12 FG, 1-5 3Pt) and grabbed seven boards in 20 minutes in the loss to the Bobcats on Saturday.
Impact: Mullens received a bit more playing time with Jarvis Varnado (heel) out. Since returning from an ankle injury, Mullens has hit 2-of-9 on 3-pointers in two games.
Sat. Apr 12, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Varnado (heel) won't play Saturday against the Bobcats, the Philadelphia Inquirer reports.
Impact: Varnado had played at least 14 minutes in each of the last five games, but his workload will likely be given to Henry Sims and Byron Mullens.
Wed. Apr 9, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Anderson played 31 minutes Wednesday, scoring 17 points (6-14 FG, 5-7 3P) with six rebounds and three assists.
Impact: He scored just 12 points in his previous three games combined, which tells you all you need to know about Anderson's consistency. He's averaging 10.8 points, 4.0 boards, 2.3 assists and 2.0 threes over his last 10 games though, numbers which could be useful in deeper leagues.
Wed. Apr 9, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Carter-Williams scored 19 points (7-12 FG, 5-5 FT) with nine rebounds and eight assists in 37 minutes during Wednesday's loss to the Raptors.
Impact: The rookie is averaging 19.0 points, 7.2 boards, 6.8 assists and 1.5 steals over his last six games. Carter-Williams still has some rough edges, but he looks like he has the potential to become a true franchise player for a club that has lacked a superstar since Allen Iverson's heyday.
Wed. Apr 9, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Sims scored 22 points (10-15 FG, 2-2 FT) with eight rebounds in 31 minutes of court time during the Sixers loss to the Raptors on Wednesday.
Impact: The second year center continues to take advantage of the big minutes he's getting, averaging 15.8 points and 8.7 boards over his last 10 games.
Wed. Apr 9, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Coach Brett Brown said Mullens (ankle) will suit up for Wednesday's game.
Impact: Mullens missed the previous five games due to the injury but will finally return on Wednesday. The seven-footer is a valuable option off the bench for the Sixers, averaging 6.5 points and 3.1 rebounds in 13 minutes since joining the team on Feb. 20. He will likely continue in his bench role and average double-digit minutes.
Tue. Apr 8, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Noel (knee) claims to have increased his vertical jump by three inches due to all the work he's put in during his rehab from ACL surgery last year, but he does not anticipate being cleared to play in any of the Sixers' final five games, the Bucks County Courier Times reports. He also told reporters that he is 100 percent healthy.
Impact: Noel even revealed Tuesday that the "4-4-14" tweet he sent out about a month ago was a personal goal he was aiming at to make his debut, but that date has come and gone with Noel still unlikely to play this season. He continues to be considered raw offensively, but the fact that his athleticism has climbed to even loftier heights is encouraging. Noel is projected to be an impact fantasy player as a rookie next season based solely on the contributions he should make on the defensive end with potential elite block, steal, and rebound numbers. The Sixers plan on having him play in both the Orlando and Las Vegas summer leagues.
Mon. Apr 7, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Carter-Williams hopes that he can get veteran guidance to help him develop his game, the Philadelphia Inquirer reports. "That's definitely something I would like," Carter-Williams said. "Learning is something big in this game. To learn from guys who've been in this league is great, and it can only help me."
Impact: Carter-Williams is already having an impressive rookie campaign, averaging 16.7 points, 6.1 rebounds, 6.3 assists, and 1.9 steals per game. It's encouraging to see that the young guard is eager to improve, and hopefully this leads to a developmental plan during the offseason. Owners who have Carter-Williams in keeper leagues can take joy in this news, as the rookie looks to only improve on his already intriguing fantasy game.
Mon. Apr 7, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Thomas will sign a 10-day contract with the Sixers, the Philadelphia Inquirer reports.
Impact: Thomas played four games for the Magic this season on a previous 10-day contract, averaging 1.8 points in 6.0 minutes per game. The Sixers are tanking hard and perhaps could have minutes to give him. Regardless, Thomas will most likely be a non-factor in fantasy.
Sat. Apr 5, 2014 | STATS
News: Young led the Sixers with 20 points Saturday.
Impact: He's scored at least 20 in three of five games.
Sat. Apr 5, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Sims registered his fifth double-double in the past month, finishing with 11 points (4-8 FG, 3-4 FT) and 11 rebounds Saturday.
Impact: Sims has taken full advantage of the increased playing time he has received in Philadelphia and has averaged 16.7 points and 8.7 rebounds in the past three games. He has value in most leagues if you need points and rebounds.
Sat. Apr 5, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Williams scored 11 points (4-8 FG, 0-3 3Pt, 3-3 FT) and added five rebounds, six assists and one steal in 29 minutes in Saturday's loss to the Nets.
Impact: Williams has now scored in double-digits in six of the past seven games and has racked up nine stelas in that same time frame. With James Anderson struggling, coach Brett Brown is giving Williams more minutes off the bench and could be a sneaky addition to your fantasy squad if you are looking for points and steals.
Sat. Apr 5, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Thompson scored 18 points (6-9 FG, 6-8 3Pt, 0-0 FT) and added two rebounds and an assist in 27 minutes Saturday.
Impact: Thompson has now started the last 19 out of the last 20 games for the moribund Sixers, but his fantasy value is limited to his ability to hit three-pointers. He's now hit multiple triples in five of his last seven games and could be considered a waiver-wire target if you desperately need three-pointers.
Sat. Apr 5, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Mullens (ankle) won't play Saturday against the Nets, Calkins Media reports.
Impact: Mullens will miss his fifth straight game. Henry Sims will continue to get big minutes at center for Philadelphia.
Sat. Apr 5, 2014 | STATS
News: Carter-Williams led the Sixers to a rare win with 24 points, six rebounds and six assists Friday.
Impact: He's averaged 20.8 points on 53.3 percent shooting in his last four games.
Sat. Apr 5, 2014 | STATS
News: Sims finished with career highs of 24 points and nine rebounds in a 111-102 win at Boston on Friday.
Impact: Sims had totaled 20 points and nine boards over his previous three contests. He still isn't considered much of a fantasy option.
Fri. Apr 4, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Carter-Williams provided 24 points (9-14 FG, 6-9 FT) with six rebounds and six assists in the win over the Celtics on Friday.
Impact: Carter-Williams has hit a nice run of shooting (26-of-46 FG, or 56.5 percent) in his last three games. He's mostly eschewed taking 3-pointers (just 0-for-4 in that span) and is providing a wealth of numbers.
Fri. Apr 4, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Sims set career highs with 24 points (5-10 FG, 14-18 FT) and nine rebounds in 34 minutes in the win over Boston on Friday.
Impact: Sims has taken advantage of his huge spike in playing time with Philadelphia. He abused the Celtics' frontline and was able to hit his freebies. The former Hoya is averaging 16.2 points in his last five games.
Fri. Apr 4, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Mullens will not play Friday, Delaware County Daily Times reports.
Impact: Mullens had previously hoped to return for Friday's game against the Celtics, but will not take to the court after all. When pressed for details on a return date, Mullens simply stated "I'm day-to-day".
Fri. Apr 4, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Ware has signed a second 10-day contract with the Sixers, the Sixers' official site reports.
Impact: Ware is averaging 3.6 points, 1.2 rebounds, 1.2 assists, and 10 steals in five games so far with the Sixers, and it appears he'll continue to be with the team. Still, he won't hold any fantasy value playing just 14.2 minutes per game, so owners can leave him in the wires in all formats.
Tue. Apr 1, 2014 | STATS
News: Mullens has a left ankle sprain for the Sixers.
Impact: Mullens' injury is another tough blow in a tough season.
Mon. Mar 31, 2014 | STATS
News: Moultrie has been suspended five games without pay for a league drug violation.
Impact: The NBA said his suspension will begin with Monday night's game against the Atlanta Hawks. Moultrie was assigned to Delaware of the D-League on March 15 after playing 12 games this season. He'll also be ineligible to play for Delaware during the suspension. Moultrie is averaging 3.0 points and 2.9 rebounds. He was the 27th pick in the 2012 draft.
