Top P.J. Tucker News

  • 76ers' P.J. Tucker: Inconsequential in starting role

    Tucker notched three points (1-2 FG, 1-2 3Pt) in 24 minutes during Sunday's 113-112 victory over the Lakers.

    Although Tucker took the floor with the starters, he couldn't get anything going Sunday. It's a familiar script for Tucker, who has only scored in double digits once this season. Although he's an apt defender and can make a difference, he failed to grab a rebound for the first time this season and was generally ineffective.

  • 76ers' P.J. Tucker: Set to start against Detroit

    Tucker (illness) is in the starting five for Tuesday's game versus the Pistons.

    Tucker has been upgraded from probable to available after missing the previous game with a non-COVID illness. The veteran forward will replace De'Anthony Melton in the starting lineup.

  • 76ers' P.J. Tucker: Likely to return Tuesday

    Tucker (illness) is probable for Tuesday's game against the Pistons.

    Tucker was unavailable Sunday against Detroit due to a non-COVID illness, but he'll likely be back in action for Tuesday's rematch. Assuming he's available, his workload will likely depend on whether Joel Embiid (foot) is able to suit up.

  • 76ers' P.J. Tucker: Will sit Sunday with illness

    Tucker will miss Sunday's game versus the Pistons due to a non-COVID illness, Justin Grasso of SI.com reports.

    While Tucker isn't a significant fantasy asset, he figured to handle more minutes with Joel Embiid (foot) sidelined. Instead, he will sit out as well, likely opening significant minutes for Montrezl Harrell, Paul Reed and others in the frontcourt. Given the reason behind Tucker's absence, a return to the lineup Tuesday in a rematch with Detroit sounds plausible.

  • 76ers' P.J. Tucker: Logs 18 minutes, apparently

    Tucker ended Monday's 120-111 victory over the Pelicans with three points (1-1 FG, 1-1 3Pt) and three rebounds in 18 minutes.

    Tucker returned to action Monday and while he did log 18 minutes, you wouldn't know it looking at the scoresheet. For a player with such a consistent role, Tucker is arguably the worst fantasy player in the league. He would need upwards of 70 minutes per night to have any shot at being a fantasy-relevant player, something that is obviously not going to happen.

  • 76ers' P.J. Tucker: Removed from injury report

    Tucker (knee) is not on the injury report ahead of Monday's game against the Pelicans.

    This is great news for the 76ers, as it means Tucker is all but set to play against one of the top teams in the Western Conference. Tucker doesn't carry a lot of fantasy upside, but he delivers lots of value on defense for the 76ers as the ideal partner for Joel Embiid on the defensive frontcourt. He should handle his regular workload Monday.

  • 76ers' P.J. Tucker: Won't play Saturday

    Tucker (knee) is out for Saturday's game versus the Thunder, Steve McGehee of News 9 Oklahoma City reports.

    Tucker will miss his first game of the season Saturday after being downgraded from questionable to out with a left knee injury. Georges Niang, Danuel House and Matisse Thybulle are candidates to see extended minutes in his absence. Tucker's next chance to play is Monday's matchup with New Orleans.

  • 76ers' P.J. Tucker: Questionable Saturday

    Tucker is questionable for Saturday's game against Oklahoma City due to left knee injury management.

    Tucker hasn't been forced to miss any games this year, but it's not yet clear whether he'll be available for the second half of a back-to-back set Saturday. If he's sidelined, Georges Niang and Danuel House would be candidates to see increased roles.

  • 76ers' P.J. Tucker: Off injury report

    Tucker doesn't appear on the 76ers' injury report for Sunday's game against the Knicks, despite relaying after Friday's 119-114 win over the Clippers that he's dealing with a pinched nerve in his hand for "a few weeks," Gina Mizell of The Philadelphia Inquirer reports.

    Tucker sat out the entire fourth quarter due to the issue, finishing with zero points, two rebounds and one steal in 20 minutes. The veteran forward sounds like he'll be able to manage the injury by receiving continued maintenance, so he's not expected to face any restrictions in the Christmas Day game.

  • 76ers' P.J. Tucker: Remains in complementary role

    Tucker produced five points (1-6 FG, 1-5 3Pt, 2-2 FT), six rebounds, two assists, one block and one steal across 39 minutes during Monday's 104-101 overtime win over the Raptors.

    The 37-year-old forward was never a big producer even at his peak, but Tucker has taken being a supporting player to new heights. With the Sixers' offense running through Joel Embiid and James Harden, Tucker has started all 29 games for the club but managed to score in double digits only once while topping out at eight rebounds. Despite his occasional defensive contributions, he simply doesn't do enough to be worth a fantasy roster spot in just about any format.

  • 76ers' P.J. Tucker: Available Monday

    Tucker (ankle) is active for Monday's contest against the Hawks.

    The veteran forward exited Philadelphia's previous contest early due to an ankle injury but will be available for the team's matchup Monday. Tucker is averaging 3.6 points, 4.5 rebounds and 1.0 assists across 28.8 minutes per game this season.
