Minnesota Timberwolves Fantasy Spin

Jeff Teague (left ankle) practiced on Monday and he's not being listed on the injury report for Tuesday's game in Philadelphia.Teague tweaked his ankle during Saturday's game, but the fact that he was able to get in a full practice today is a very encouraging sign regarding his status for Tuesday's game. We should get another update following shootaround, but for now, it looks like owners can plan on having him available.

Philadelphia 76ers Fantasy Spin

Joel Embiid (ankle) looked great in his return from a one-game absence, tallying 26 points, eight rebounds, one assist, six blocks and two turnovers across 32 minutes. Embiid went to work against the New York bigs, dominating anyone they put in front of him on both ends of the floor, which is pretty much par for the course for the 24-year-old big man who is having himself an MVP-caliber season. The ankle was a complete non-issue, so he should be fine for Tuesday’s game against the Timberwolves.
