News: Covington scored 19 points (6-10 FG, 6-8 3Pt, 1-2 FT) and added two rebounds, one assist and two blocks in 27 minutes of play against the Charlotte Hornets on Friday.
Impact: Covington has been great of late - especially for a player who is not likely owned in your league. He is averaging 18.7 points, 5.7 rebounds, 1.3 assists, 1.0 steals, 1.0 blocks and 3.7 three-pointers per game over his last three games - all while logging 34 minutes per game. He has value in all categories, including a surplus of three-pointers. He nailed six three-pointers on Friday, which is his second time in four games.
News: Carter-Williams scored 14 points (6-17 FG, 0-3 3Pt, 2-2 FT) and added five rebounds, 10 assists, one steal and one block in 30 minutes of work against the Hornets on Friday.
Impact: MCW is averaging 14.3 points, 7.0 rebounds and 9.0 assists per game over his last three games. He is almost averaging a triple-double. He has performed in his second season on a team that is, well, not conducive to fantasy production. In fact, on a per game basis, MCW is a top 10 fantasy point guard this season.
News: Wroten scored 19 points (5-10 FG, 4-6 3Pt, 5-6 FT) and added one rebound, three assists and one block in 24 minutes off the bench against the Charlotte Hornets on Friday.
Impact: Wroten has had two solid games with 17 and 19 points and one dud game with zero points since returning from a knee sprain. His minutes have been reduced, as he is averaging 24 minutes a game in his last three games, which is about seven minutes less than his season average. This is due to lineup changes and injuries, but we will see soon what the plan is for Wroten. If he continues to score at a high rate, the Sixers are going to have a hard time keeping Wroten out of the lineup.
