Top De'Anthony Melton News

  • 76ers' De'Anthony Melton: Well-rounded performance vs. Nets

    Melton logged 19 points (7-10 FG, 3-6 3Pt, 2-2 FT), four rebounds, two assists, three blocks and one steal across 34 minutes during Wednesday's 137-133 win over the Nets.

    Melton was quiet on the scoreboard for most of January, but he's now scored in double figures in back-to-back matchups. He also racked up a season-high three blocks Wednesday after tallying three steals Saturday against the Kings. Over his six appearances since returning to the starting lineup, he's averaged 8.2 points, 3.5 rebounds, 2.5 assists and 2.0 steals in 28.2 minutes per game.

  • 76ers' De'Anthony Melton: Shines sans Harden, Embiid

    Melton finished with 14 points (4-8 FG, 2-4 3Pt, 4-4 FT), seven rebounds, five assists, three steals and one block in 31 minutes in Saturday's 129-127 win over the Kings.

    While James Harden (foot) and Joel Embiid (foot) were out of the lineup, Melton was one of several 76ers players who noticed a boost in playing time and overall production. Because of his defensive versatility, Melton looks as though he'll stick in the starting five over Tyrese Maxey when both Harden and Embiid are available, but that won't guarantee Melton lasting fantasy value. In his previous four starts alongside Harden and Embiid, Melton sported usage rates ranging between 6.6 and 12.1 percent and averaged just 4.0 points, 2.5 rebounds, 2.0 assists, 2.0 steals, 1.0 blocks and 1.0 three-pointers in 26.0 minutes.

  • 76ers' De'Anthony Melton: Good to go Tuesday

    Melton (illness) is in the starting lineup for Tuesday's game versus the Clippers, Austin Krell of USA Today reports.

    Melton has been upgraded from probable to available Tuesday due to a non-COVID illness. The 24-year-old guard is averaging 4.6 points, 3.4 rebounds, 2.2 assists and 1.4 steals in 23.4 minutes across his last five games.

  • 76ers' De'Anthony Melton: Dealing with illness

    Melton missed the 76ers' morning shootaround due to a non-COVID-19-related illness, but he's still expected to play Tuesday against the Clippers, Gina Mizell of The Philadelphia Inquirer reports.

    Melton is under the weather, but his absence from shootaround looks to have been merely precautionary. The fifth-year wing has started in 31 of 40 appearances to begin his Sixers tenure and is averaging 11.2 points, 4.6 rebounds, 3.0 assists and 1.9 steals across 29.5 minutes per game.

  • 76ers' De'Anthony Melton: Remains in starting lineup

    Melton is starting Sunday against the Lakers, Ryan Ward of LakersNation.com reports.

    Although Tobias Harris (knee) is available for Sunday's matchup, Melton will start a second consecutive game while Tyrese Maxey comes off the bench. Over his last five appearances (three starts), Melton has averaged 6.4 points, 3.6 rebounds, 2.2 assists and 1.4 steals in 24.4 minutes per game.

  • 76ers' De'Anthony Melton: Improved effort in spot start

    Melton contributed six points (2-7 FG, 2-3 3Pt), four rebounds, three assists, three steals and two blocks across 32 minutes during Saturday's 118-117 victory over the Jazz.

    Melton moved back into the starting lineup Saturday after Tobias Harris was ruled out with a knee injury. While Melton was quite passive on the offensive end, he chipped in across multiple categories, including five defensive counters. Assuming Harris isn't dealing with a long-term injury, Melton will be slated to come off the bench in most games moving forward, which limits his overall fantasy appeal. However, whenever starters are ruled out like what materialized Saturday, Melton becomes an intriguing option in 12-team category leagues.

  • 76ers' De'Anthony Melton: Starting Saturday

    Melton will join the starting five for Saturday's meeting with Utah, Eric Walden of The Salt Lake Tribune reports.

    Melton will take the starting spot from Tobias Harris (knee), who is sidelined for the contest. In 29 starts this season, Melton has averaged 12.8 points, 5.1 rebounds and 3.2 assists across 32.7 minutes per game.

  • 76ers' De'Anthony Melton: Moves back to bench

    Melton isn't in the starting lineup for Tuesday's game versus the Pistons.

    The 24-year-old guard will be replaced by P.J. Tucker in the starting lineup Tuesday. Melton will come off the bench for the first time since Oct. 29.

  • 76ers' De'Anthony Melton: Hits five threes in win

    Melton posted 19 points (7-15 FG, 5-8 3Pt) and seven rebounds over 37 minutes during Wednesday's 129-126 overtime win over Indiana.

    Melton recorded eight first-half points on 3-of-7 shooting while adding just one rebound as the Sixers jumped out to a five-point lead at the break. He knocked down just two of six shot attempts in the second half but went 2-of-2 from the field for five points in the overtime period to help Philadelphia win its third straight. Melton hit five threes in the contest and has connected on at least three three-pointers in three straight games, shooting 55 percent from beyond the arc over that stretch.

  • 76ers' De'Anthony Melton: Solid two-way effort in loss

    Melton notched 11 points (4-8 FG, 2-6 3Pt, 1-2 FT), three rebounds, four assists, two blocks and two steals across 30 minutes during Friday's 127-116 loss to the Pelicans.

    Melton remained in the starting lineup despite the return of Tyrese Maxey, finishing with a balanced performance. Maxey is likely to be eased back into things after missing significant time with a foot injury, meaning Melton should be able to maintain 12-team value for at least the next week or two. Beyond that, managers would be well advised to take a wait-and-see approach given his ability to contribute, even in limited minutes, before cutting him.

  • 76ers' De'Anthony Melton: Near double-double performance

    Melton logged 12 points (4-11 FG, 2-6 3Pt, 2-2 FT), nine rebounds, three assists and one steal in 24 minutes during Wednesday's 113-93 victory over the Pistons.

    Melton notched his fourth double digit scoring total in the last five contests, finishing one rebound shy of his second double-double of the year. Melton has tallied at least 10 points and five rebounds in nine games this season.

  • 76ers' De'Anthony Melton: Modest production in OT win

    Melton posted eight points (3-14 FG, 2-11 3Pt), seven rebounds, one assist and one steal over 41 minutes during Monday's 104-101 overtime victory over the Raptors.

    Melton submitted his worst offensive performance since a Nov. 13 appearance off the bench. He did grab at least seven rebounds for just the sixth time this year, but his overall production left fantasy mangers wanting more, especially after his recent string of success. Coming into the contest, Melton was averaging 15.2 points, 4.9 rebounds, 4.1 assists and 2.8 steals over his last 13 appearances, so look for him to get back on track Wednesday against the Pistons.
