Philadelphia 76ers DFS Notes

Matisse Thybulle is listed as “ineligible to play” on Philly’s injury report for Thursday’s game against the Raptors. That’s about all we know for sure right now, but one has to wonder if the reason he can’t play is due to the vaccine mandate in Canada. If Thybulle is unvaccinated, he’s not allowed to enter Canada at all, and this could become a huge issue if the Raptors play the 76ers in the first round of the playoffs, which is how it would be if the postseason started today. Once again, this is all speculative, but we’re bound to get more info if these two teams actually do meet in the first round.

Toronto Raptors DFS Notes

Pascal Siakam hit 12-of-23 shots and a 3-pointer for 31 points, 13 rebounds, six assists, a steal and a block with zero turnovers in 40 minutes of Tuesday's 118-108 win over the Hawks. That locks the Raptors into the Top 6 in the East and a regular playoff series once the play-ins are decided. Scottie Barnes double-doubled, Fred VanVleet just missed one and Chris Boucher got loose off the bench for 18 points, seven rebounds, three triples and a steal in 22 minutes. The Raptors are still battling with the Bulls to see who will be the No. 5 and 6 seeds so there's a chance they keep playing their studs until the end of the season. The Raptors currently hold a 1/2 game lead on Chicago, sitting as the No. 5 seed.
