76ers' James Harden: Nabs questionable tag Wednesday
Harden is considered questionable for Wednesday's game versus the Bulls due to left Achilles soreness.
Harden was listed out for rest purposes Sunday in the second game of a back-to-back set, but this time it's an Achilles, and it's not a back-to-back for the Sixers. The veteran is coming off a rough shooting stretch in his last two games, going just 6-for-29 from the field and 0-for-12 from deep, so it could wind up being a rest-and-reset night for him after logging 47 minutes in Monday's overtime clash with Chicago. If he sits out, De'Anthony Melton would likely draw another start.... See More ... See Less
76ers' P.J. Tucker: Listed questionable Wednesday
Tucker (ankle) is listed as questionable for Wednesday's game at Chicago.
The defensive-minded forward has missed the last two games with a sore ankle, and fantasy managers will have to wait until closer to Wednesday's tip for a definitive update. Danuel House has filled Tucker's spot in the starting lineup in each of the last two games.... See More ... See Less
76ers' De'Anthony Melton: Strong showing off bench in OT loss
Melton totaled 19 points (7-15 FG, 5-12 3Pt), six rebounds, four steals, one assist and one block across 39 minutes off the bench during Monday's 109-105 double-overtime loss to the Bulls.
The fifth-year guard has been a terror on the defensive end lately, racking up 10 steals in the last two games alone. Melton has been bouncing between the first and second units in March, and his playing time can be erratic, but he's still producing his usual numbers, averaging 9.9 points, 4.6 boards, 2.5 assists, 2.2 threes and 1.8 steals over his last 11 games....

76ers' James Harden: Awful shooting night Monday
Harden ended with five points (2-14 FG, 0-6 3Pt, 1-1 FT), 12 assists, seven rebounds, one block and one steal across 47 minutes during Monday's 109-105 double-overtime loss to the Bulls.
It's the first time since Jan. 17 that Harden has failed to score in double digits, and the five points were a season low for the 33-year-old despite the fact he tied his season high in minutes. Harden rested for Saturday's game against the Pacers, but the day off didn't solve his recent shooting woes -- he's reached 20 points only once in his last six contests, stumbling to a 34.9 percent field-goal percentage over that stretch while averaging just 15.8 points, albeit with 12.7 assists, 7.3 boards, 1.5 threes and 1.3 steals....

76ers' Tyrese Maxey: Hits for 22 against Chicago
Maxey finished with 22 points (9-19 FG, 2-7 3Pt, 2-2 FT), six assists, five rebounds and one block over 46 minutes during Monday's 109-105 double-overtime loss to the Bulls.
The third-year guard has been locked in since moving back into the starting five at the beginning of March. Maxey has scored more than 20 points in eight of 11 games on the month, averaging 22.1 points, 3.4 assists, 3.4 threes and 2.8 boards over that stretch while shooting 56.1 percent from the floor and a dazzling 52.1 percent from beyond the arc....

76ers' Joel Embiid: Huge double-double in OT loss
Embiid recorded 37 points (11-22 FG, 0-2 3Pt, 15-17 FT), 16 rebounds, three blocks, one steal and one assist across 44 minutes before fouling out of Monday's 109-105 double-overtime loss to Chicago.
The Sixers are in the thick of the race for the top seed in the Eastern Conference, and Embiid's recent play is a big reason why. The perennial MVP candidate has scored more than 30 points in 10 straight games, averaging a massive 36.2 points, 9.5 boards, 4.3 assists, 2.4 blocks and 1.1 threes over that stretch while shooting 61.3 percent from the floor and an impressive 42.3 percent (11-for-26) from three-point range....

76ers' De'Anthony Melton: Back to bench
Melton isn't starting Monday's game against Chicago.
Melton drew a spot start Saturday with James Harden (rest) unavailable, but the former will head back to a reserve role Monday. Across 15 appearances off the bench this season, Melton has averaged 7.9 points, 3.6 rebounds, 2.3 assists and 1.2 steals in 20.9 minutes.... See More ... See Less
76ers' P.J. Tucker: Ruled out Monday
Tucker (ankle) has been ruled out for Monday's game against Chicago, Justin Grasso of SI.com reports.
Tucker didn't participate in Monday's shootaround and will be held out for a second consecutive game due to his ankle issue. Tobias Harris, Jalen McDaniels and Danuel House are candidates to see increased run once again Monday.... See More ... See Less
76ers' P.J. Tucker: Sits out morning shootaround
Tucker (ankle) did not go through Monday's morning shootaround, Keith Pompey of The Philadelphia Inquirer reports.
Tucker remains questionable Monday but missing shootaround is obviously a bit concerning. If the veteran forward is unable to play, we could see Jalen McDaniels get extended run against the Bulls.... See More ... See Less
76ers' P.J. Tucker: Questionable Monday
Tucker (ankle) is questionable for Monday's game against the Bulls.
Tucker sat out Saturday's game due to the ankle issue, which resulted in Danuel House getting the start and both Georges Niang and Jalen McDaniels receiving a bump in minutes. It'll be more of the same if Tucker can't give it a go Monday evening, with Niang being the preferable target in fantasy hoops.... See More ... See Less
76ers' James Harden: Not listed on injury report
Harden (rest) is not listed on the injury report ahead of Monday's matchup with the Bulls.
Harden sat out Saturday's game for rest purposes, but he'll be back in action Monday evening, which should result in De'Anthony Melton shifting back to the second unit and a dip in Shake Milton's minutes.... See More ... See Less
76ers' Mac McClung: Another 20-point game
McClung managed 20 points (7-14 FG, 2-4 3Pt, 3-3 FT), four assists and two rebounds in 27 minutes during Saturday's 119-112 loss to Windy City.
McClung was efficient from the field and scored at least 20 points for the eighth time over his past nine appearances. Across 48 games, he's averaging 19.0 points per contest while shooting 50.6 percent from the field and 42.7 percent from deep.... See More ... See Less
76ers' Louis King: Efficient performance in loss
King posted 21 points (8-12 FG, 5-8 3Pt), seven rebounds, three assists, two steals and two blocks in 30 minutes during Saturday's 119-112 loss to Windy City.
King scored just six points (3-10 FG) in his last outing, but he bounced back by notching his third 20-plus-point game over his last five appearances. He also posted multiple tallies in each defensive category for the first time since Nov. 19.... See More ... See Less
