Miami Heat DFS Notes

Jimmy Butler (bruised tailbone) will not suit up in Wednesday's game vs. the 76ers. This will be Butler's fourth straight game on the sidelines, which will likely result in another start for Gabe Vincent. Butler's absence has freed up additional minutes on the wing, making Vincent a solid streaming option, while Tyler Herro's fantasy value has also increased.

Philadelphia 76ers DFS Notes

Joel Embiid (sore right ribs) is being listed as questionable for Wednesday's game vs. the Heat. Embiid was announced as "out" after Monday's game had already tipped off with the rib issue, but at least we're getting a warning this time around with him popping up on the injury report. Hopefully, we'll get another update following tomorrow's shootaround, but he could be headed for a game-time call situation. If Embiid needs to miss another game, Andre Drummond would be set for another start.
