  • 76ers' Georges Niang: Drains four threes in win

    Niang recorded 14 points (5-9 FG, 4-7 3Pt) and one rebound over 19 minutes off the bench during Saturday's 126-119 victory over the Nuggets.

    The veteran forward continues to provide the Sixers with a long-distance threat on the second unit, although he doesn't offer much else from a fantasy perspective. Niang has drained multiple three-pointers in 10 of 13 games in January while shooting 48.4 percent (32-for-66) on his attempts, but on the month, he's averaging just 9.2 points, 2.7 boards and 1.2 assists a game.

  • 76ers' Georges Niang: Pitches in with Embiid out

    Niang finished with 17 points (7-12 FG, 3-5 3Pt), six rebounds and one assist across 27 minutes during Saturday's 129-127 victory over the Kings.

    While Montrezl Harrell drew the start for Joel Embiid (foot), Niang emerged as the next man up, a role that fell to Paul Reed in previous seasons. Niang's contribution has been most noticeable in lop-sided outcomes by the Sixers, but he holds decent fantasy value when Embiid is out. The 29-year-old has posted double-digit scoring outcomes in 19 of 44 games as a backup.

  • 76ers' Georges Niang: Available Saturday

    Niang (illness) will play in Saturday's game against Utah, Eric Walden of The Salt Lake Tribune reports.

    Niang was tabbed as questionable for the contest after missing shootaround but will suit up and take the floor Saturday. With Tobias Harris (knee) absent, he could be in line for extra minutes.

  • 76ers' Georges Niang: Questionable against Utah

    Niang missed shootaround ahead of Saturday's game versus the Jazz and is considered questionable due to a non-COVID illness, Rich Hofmann of The Athletic reports.

    Niang's absence from shootaround is a bad sign for his status Saturday. If he is unable to suit up, his next chance to play is Sunday's matchup with the Lakers.

  • 76ers' Georges Niang: Lands five triples in win

    Niang supplied 15 points (5-9 FG, 5-9 3Pt), five rebounds, four assists, one block and one steal across 27 minutes during Monday's 120-111 win over New Orleans.

    Niang dropped a team-high five triples in the win, the most he has hit in a single game since mid-December. With the team now relatively healthy, Niang's playing time is likely to be sporadic, at best. His on-court value is completely reliant on his ability to hit the long ball, something that has been a bit hit or miss thus far.

  • 76ers' Georges Niang: Leader from deep off bench

    Niang amassed 11 points (3-12 FG, 3-11 3Pt, 2-2 FT), three rebounds and two steals in 27 minutes during Wednesday's 113-93 win over the Pistons.

    Niang led the 76ers from three while leading the second unit in scoring, posting his third double-digit scoring total in the last four contests. Niang has reached double figures in scoring on 12 occasions this year.

  • 76ers' Georges Niang: Plays 13 minutes in return

    Niang contributed three points (1-2 FG, 1-2 3Pt), two rebounds and one assist over 13 minutes during Sunday's 131-113 victory over the Hornets.

    Niang returned to action Sunday after missing two games with a foot injury. He didn't factor much into the game as he took just two shot attempts. In the nine games before the injury, he averaged 11.7 points and made 41.1 percent of his three-point tries. He's likely to return to his reserve role and play around 20 minutes a night moving forward.

  • 76ers' Georges Niang: Will suit up Sunday

    Niang (foot) confirmed that he'll play Sunday against the Hornets, Austin Krell of USA Today reports.

    After missing the past two games with a sore foot, Niang was upgraded to probable for Sunday's contest and relayed that he checked out fine coming out of the 76ers' morning shootaround. Given the brevity of his absence, Niang shouldn't face any major restrictions in his return. Over his first 23 appearances of the season, Niang is averaging 9.7 points, 2.3 three-pointers, 2.1 rebounds and 1.1 assists in 19.7 minutes while converting at a 43.1 percent rate from downtown.

    Niang (foot) is probable for Sunday's game against the Hornets.

  • 76ers' Georges Niang: Absent from practice

    Niang (foot) didn't practice Thursday, Noah Levick of NBC Sports Philadelphia reports.

  • 76ers' Georges Niang: Out Monday

    Niang (foot) won't play Monday at Houston, Kyle Neubeck of reports.

    Niang emerged from Friday's loss to Memphis with a sore right foot that will sideline him for at least one contest. The return of James Harden (foot) should absorb some of Niang's minutes, while Furkan Korkmaz, Danuel House and Matisse Thybulle are also candidates to see a slight bump in playing time.

  • 76ers' Georges Niang: Questionable Monday

    Niang is questionable for Monday's game against Houston due to right foot soreness.

    Niang has been held to single-digit scoring totals in each of the last four matchups, and he averaged 7.5 points in 19.5 minutes per game. If he's unable to suit up Monday, Danuel House and Paul Reed would likely see increased playing time.

  • 76ers' Georges Niang: Leading bench scorer

    Niang produced 18 points (6-8 FG, 5-7 3Pt, 1-2 FT), one rebound and two assists across 23 minutes during Friday's 107-99 victory over the Magic.

    Niang got off to a slow start, but he turned it on in the second half by scoring 14 points with the help of four made triples. He's scored in double figures in four of his last five contests and continues to make an impact off the bench for this Philadelphia squad. Niang is averaging 10.1 points, 2.2 rebounds and 1.0 assists in 19.7 minutes so far this season (19 games).

  • 76ers' Georges Niang: Does damage from deep

    Niang finished with 16 points (6-11 FG, 4-5 3Pt), five rebounds, two assists and one block over 18 minutes during Tuesday's 115-106 win over the Nets.

    Niang made his presence felt from beyond the arc, and he also put together his best showing on the glass since Oct. 28 against Toronto. He'd enjoyed 30 and 32 minutes in his last two contests heading into Tuesday's matchup, but he saw his playing time drop to 18 minutes against Brooklyn with Paul Reed becoming more involved in the rotation.
