Joel Embiid (left knee maintenance) isn't on the injury report for Tuesday's game vs. Boston. Embiid sat out Sunday's game but that was purely a precaution in the second half of a back-to-back set. If fantasy managers survived without him due to the left knee bruise, they're now well-positioned with fantasy playoffs just about underway in most leagues.

Evan Fournier hit 5-of-9 shots, 4-of-5 3-pointers, and 3-of-3 free throws for 17 points, six assists, two steals, one block, and one turnover in a win over the Hornets. After missing all 10 of his shots in his Celtics debut, Fournier has quickly found his rhythm. At one point he made 11 shots in a row stretching back to his last game. In his last two games combined, he's made 11-of-16 3-point shots and scored 40 points. It's unlikely he continues to shoot at this ridiculous rate, but it's great news he's catching on so quickly.
