Philadelphia 76ers DFS Notes
Joel Embiid (right knee) is being listed as questionable for Game 3 vs. the Hawks. We'd be shocked if he didn't play, but we probably won't get official confirmation on his status until just prior to tip-off.
Atlanta Hawks DFS Notes
De'Andre Hunter will undergo meniscus surgery and miss the remainder of the season. An MRI showed a small tear of the lateral meniscus, so this is just a brutal blow for the Hawks after his heroic performance in Round 1 vs. Julius Randle and the Knicks. His right knee was problematic for most of the season with Hunter missing 49 games, and it remains to be seen just how long his rehab will take -- that will depend on the specifics of the surgery. Hopefully we'll have a timetable when the surgery is completed this weekend.
