Philadelphia 76ers DFS Notes
Joel Embiid put up 16 points (4-of-16 FGs, 7-of-10 FTs), 13 rebounds, five assists, two blocks and a triple in 30 minutes of a win vs. Orlando on Monday. Embiid was coming off an incredible 42-point performance, and while the 76ers didn’t manage to win that one vs. the Wolves, it was impressive how quickly he found his footing. "And Joel would take 30 and win, if you know what I'm saying,” Doc Rivers said. “But, he was great. Played a ton of minutes. Something you just don't know from COVID. Give him credit. Clearly, he's been working out, and he showed us that." The 76ers improved to 11-10 with the win and will now hit the road for a 4-game road trip.
Boston Celtics DFS Notes
Dennis Schroder (right ankle) is not being listed on the injury report for Wednesday's game vs. Philly and he's expected to play. Head coach Ime Udoka said he was expecting to have everyone healthy for tomorrow's game, so it looks like Schroder will be back in action after a one-game absence, which means less run for Josh Richardson. Robert Williams (illness) is also not listed on the injury report for Wednesday's game, so it looks like he'll be returning from a three-game stint on the sidelines.
