Joel Embiid returned from a rest day vs. the Wizards on Wednesday and scored 27 points with 14 rebounds, six assists, one steal and a block. His last absence was way back on Dec. 13th, so Embiid’s fantasy managers have been pretty spoiled lately. And we’re not just talking about his availability, as Embiid has been on a tear for the past month with 34.2 points, 10.5 rebounds, 4.7 dimes, 1.5 blocks and 1.0 triples. The MVP candidate will head to Dallas on Friday who don’t exactly have any good options to slow him down.

Luka Doncic and Karl-Anthony Towns have been named Western Conference All-Star reserves. Doncic, who was a starter last season, is headed back to the midseason classic as a reserve. This will be his third All-Star Game appearance, while Towns will also be an All-Star for the third time in his NBA career. In the case of Towns, it's possible that he could be joined by a teammate (Anthony Edwards), as Draymond Green will not be able to play due to injury.
