Los Angeles Clippers DFS Notes

Kawhi Leonard (sore right foot) is questionable to play against the Sixers on Friday. Leonard's missed the last three games with the injury but could return on Friday. The Clippers expect Paul George and Marcus Morris to return, so they'll benefit the most statistically if Leonard sits another night.

Philadelphia 76ers DFS Notes

Joel Embiid dropped in a 39-point, 13-rebound double-double in Wednesday's win over the Nets. Embiid dominated the game, finishing 13-of-29 from the field and 10-of-11 from the stripe to go with two assists, three triples, two swats and just two turnovers in his 33 minutes of floor time. He had 21 points at the half, which was the 14th time he's had a 20-point-half this season, and he leads the league in that stat. Philly got the win tonight despite going 0-of-8 from the field over the final eight minutes of play, something that hasn't happened in the NBA since January of 2019.
