Josh: I guess his ankle is okay, which is great news
Kyle: Simons came back from his re-sprained ankle with a big night despite his minutes being a little short. Hopefully his ankle is all good going forward.
Josh: Low minutes, which is concerning, but production is great and so continues the Melton Conundrum. He is probably a 12 team hold, but I don't feel strongly about it
Stream Kyle: Melton moved to the bench with Harden available and starting, but he still put together a useful line, displaying his value as at least a streamer, even in his bench role.
Kyle: Harden was back in action after sitting out the previous game.
Josh: Just didn't see the ball enough here after a massive hot streak.
Josh: Now, just a blocks streamer with Nurkic back
Droppable 12 teams Josh: He was a +14 in his 'revenge' game, but they severely limited his minutes. Still brought the defense, which is why you have him. But, if you roster him in a points league, you can move on
Droppable 12 teams Kyle: Thybulle's role is getting marginalized by the Blazers' depth, and he's not producing as well as expected, making him fine to treat as a streamer and specialist, OK to drop as needed.
Hold 12 teams Josh: Played like a starter, getting Thybulle's minutes, despite Simons retunring. Hold him for now.
Maybe Add 12 teams Kyle: Reddish moved back to the bench with Simons starting, but Reddish still played huge minutes and put up a decent line. He's worth considering as a flier or streamer to see how this situation plays out.
Josh: If the 76ers have a bad schedule stretch in your playoffs, Harris is going to be a droppable player. He cannot get the ball enough with Maxey, Harden, and Embiid all starting
Kyle: Harris is OK to hold, as he should at least be getting streamed consistently in most leagues, but he's also OK to treat as a streamer with his production being reduced lately.
Josh: Back to 26 minutes in his second game.
Maybe Add Kyle: Nurkic's minutes were close to normal, and he's worth grabbing if recently dropped when it looked like he might be eased into action more after modest minutes in his first game.
Josh: No Nurkic minutes limit, so Watford is out of the rotation.
Droppable Kyle: Watford was out of the rotation with the Blazers healthy and the rotation shifted around a little. He still may see regular spot action, but this makes it hard to trust him being in the rotation nightly going forward.
