Markelle Fultz    G  76ers

 

 

Markelle Fultz played just 16 minutes vs. the Pistons, scoring two points on 1-of-4 shooting with three assists, two rebounds and one steal. He didn't take any free throws, so he doesn't have to worry about being trolled on social media tonight. All kidding aside, Fultz deserves some slack because he's playing on a bad shoulder and has some discomfort when he shoots, but coach Brett Brown said this week that the PG will continue to play through it. Treat him like a stash going forward because he doesn't belong in fantasy lineups at the moment.

Amir Johnson    F/C  76ers

 

 

Amir Johnson returned to the bench on Monday vs. Detroit, scoring three points with nine rebounds and one 3-pointer in 19 minutes. Joel Embiid was back in action and dropped 30 points, and since the 76ers don't have another back-to-back set until the end of November, Johnson is only going to see a handful of minutes while The Process is healthy. Richaun Holmes (wrist) is nearing a return as well.

Robert Covington    G/F  76ers

 

 

Robert Covington stuffed the stat sheet again on Monday vs. Detroit, scoring 13 points with five rebounds, two assists, four steals and three 3-pointers in 34 minutes. Unlike last season, Covington is off to a hot start from the field, hitting 4-of-7 shots tonight and 50 percent in his previous three. He's Philly's best perimeter defender and second best floor spacer, so he's going to continue to get heavy minutes on the wings.

Joel Embiid    F/C  76ers

 

 

Joel Embiid returned from a day of rest and led the 76ers to their first win of the season on Monday vs. Detroit, dropping 30 points in 28 minutes. He'll probably be capped at 28 minutes for a little while longer, but at least the 76ers don't have another back-to-back set until Nov. 29 and Nov. 30. He toasted Andre Drummond tonight, hitting 11-of-15 shots and 7-of-8 free throws with nine rebounds, two steals, one 3-pointer and seven turnovers. He'll need to take better care of the ball, but his owners won't care with lines like these.

Ben Simmons    F  76ers

 

 

Ben Simmons posted his first career triple-double in just his fourth NBA game, scoring 21 points with 12 rebounds and 10 assists in Monday's 97-86 win over the Pistons. This was his best game by far, posting career-highs in points, rebounds and assists with one steal and four turnovers. He was very efficient, hitting 8-of-11 from the field and 5-of-6 from the line and his pick-and-roll chemistry with Joel Embiid was on point. Simmons became just the third player in NBA history to have a triple-double in his first four games and also the first player to go 10-10-5 in each of the first four since the Big O (Oscar Robertson).

Richaun Holmes    F/C  76ers

 

 

Richaun Holmes did some on-court work before Monday's game in Detroit. He didn't have a brace on his left wrist, but the righty still wasn't using his guide hand at all while he was taking shots. Holmes doesn't have a specific timetable to return, but hopefully he can return at some point in November. He could be worth a stash depending on your format, and Joel Embiid fantasy owners may want to be more aggressive in adding him.

Amir Johnson    F  76ers

 

 

Updating a previous report, Johnson will come off the bench as initially expected Monday against the Pistons, Rod Beard of the Detroit News reports.
