News: Noel (illness) went through a full practice Tuesday and will play in Thursday's preseason finale against Detroit.
Impact: Noel missed a trio of preseason games with an upper respiratory infection, but he's feeling better and should be good to go going forward. Expect Noel to see big minutes at center and compete for Rookie of the Year honors this season.
Tue. Oct 21, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Mbah a Moute (back) did not practice Tuesday, Tom Moore of Calkins Media reports.
Impact: Mbah a Moute has been banged up for most of the preseason, last playing a week ago against the Knicks. The team has provided minimal detail regarding this latest back injury, so he'll continue to be monitored on a day-to-day basis.
Mon. Oct 20, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Thompson (eye) was able to put up 11 points (4-8 FG, 2-6 3Pt, 1-2 FT), four rebounds, two assists, and one steal during 32 minutes of action against the Nets on Monday.
Impact: Thompson has been able to play in three preseason games since being sidelined with an eye injury. As his recent availability denotes, he no longer is held back by the eye injury and should be good to go when the 76ers start their regular season on Oct. 29 against the Pacers.
Mon. Oct 20, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Noel (illness) has been ruled out of Monday's preseason game versus the Nets, The Philadelphia Inquirer reports.
Impact: Noel has missed the 76ers' past two exhibition outing while dealing with an upper respiratory infection that will keep him sidelined once again Monday. Although Noel's status for Thursday's preseason finale is uncertain, he's still expected to start at power forward for Philadelphia this season and offers significant fantasy upside despite his inexperience.
Sat. Oct 18, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Lee left Saturday's preseason game against Orlando with a sprained left ankle, the Sixers' official site reports. He will not return.
Impact: Lee had six points, two rebounds, two assists and a steal in 10 minutes before the injury. If he makes the final roster, he is expected to play only a minimal role for Philadelphia this season.
Sat. Oct 18, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Wroten will miss Saturday's game for personal reasons, Max Rappaport of the team's official site reports.
Impact: Wroten's reason for missing the game wasn't specified beyond personal, but it shouldn't keep him out for too long and he should be fine for the beginning of the regular season.
Sat. Oct 18, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Noel will not play in Saturday's preseason game, Max Rappaport of the team's official site reports.
Impact: Noel has been dealing with an upper-respiratory infection lately, and it will keep him out of Saturday's preseason game. The team has no need to rush him back, but the illness shouldn't effect his availability for the start of the regular season.
Thu. Oct 16, 2014 | STATS
News: Arthur Embiid, the younger brother of Philadelphia 76ers rookie center Joel Embiid, died Thursday in Africa. The cause of death wasn't immediately available.
Impact: Embiid, a 7-footer from the University of Kansas, has yet to practice or play in the preseason after having surgery on his right foot in June, shortly before the team made him the third overall pick in the draft. He's expected to at least miss a large portion of the regular season. Coach Brett Brown, general manager Sam Hinkie and forward Luc Mbah a Moute - also a native of Cameroon - skipped the team's exhibition game Thursday night against Boston to be with Embiid.
Thu. Oct 16, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Noel (illness) will not play Thursday against the Celtics.
Impact: Noel missed Wednesday's practice because of the ailment and will sit out Thursday, likely as a precaution. The second-year "rookie" is coming off of a strong performance (12 points, 11 rebounds, four steals) in Tuesday's 84-77 loss to New York.
Wed. Oct 15, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Thompson (eye) returned to practice Wednesday, The Philadelphia Inquirer reports.
Impact: Thompson suffered a corneal abrasion last week, causing him to miss Friday's preseason game versus Minnesota. Although it's unclear when Thompson will be available to play in game action, his return to practice Wednesday is at least a move in the right direction.
Wed. Oct 15, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Noel missed Wednesday's practice due to flu-like symptoms, The Philadelphia Inquirer reports.
Impact: Noel recovered from a thigh ailment to play a team-high 34 minutes Tuesday versus the Knicks, recording an outstanding 12 points (3-5 FG, 6-8 FT), 11 rebounds, four steals and three assists along the way. However, the 20-year-old apparently did so while nursing a fever, which caused him to sit out Wednesday's practice session. Nonetheless, Noel expects to play as usual in Thursday's upcoming preseason contest.

News: Carter-Williams (shoulder) said Monday that the original diagnosis was that he'd miss six-to-nine months, meaning the injury was more serious than typical labrum surgery, The Intelligencer's Tom Moore reports.
Impact: He has missed five months and a week since the May 6 operation, and has yet to scrimmage, and while Carter-Williams says he's "plenty ahead of schedule," coach Brett Brown said his starting point guard is "a ways away" from full-contact basketball. The one thing that is clear is that the two-to-four month timetable that was originally reported is bogus, and owners should now operate under the knowledge that MCW could be out for three more weeks, or, possibly longer. Carter-Williams said that if it was up to him he would already be out there, and he's just following doctor's orders, but given the fact that the Sixers clearly don't plan on competing this season, they may opt to be overly cautious with the franchise point guard. Tony Wroten will be the primary benefactor as long as Carter-Williams is out.
Mon. Oct 13, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Richardson's role with the Sixers for the 2014-15 season should be confirmed soon. Coach Brett Brown stated: "Soon we're going to know what's going to happen with his playing days," Tom Moore of Calkins Media reports.
Impact: The 33-year-old Richardson didn't play last season after he was recovering from knee surgery. At this point, we can be certain he won't be starting, like he has in 827 of his 838 career games. With that in mind, Brown said he wants to keep Richardson on the team, but Brown still isn't sure whether he wants Richardson to be a player or mentor.
Mon. Oct 13, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Roberts, Jr. (left quad strain) did not practice Monday, the Philadelphia Inquirer's Keith Pompey reports.
Impact: It's unclear if he'll be available for Tuesday's exhibition, and he should be considered day-to-day for now.
Mon. Oct 13, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Carter-Williams (shoulder) says he feels "unbelievable," but coach Brett Brown indicated the point guard is still "a few weeks away from playing physical, 5-on-5 basketball," Tom Moore of Calkins Media reports.
Impact: Carter-Williams is slightly ahead of schedule in his return from labrum surgery, but at this point his status appears bleak for the regular season opener Oct. 29 in Indianapolis. He'll likely be back in the mix in early November, and it could take a few contests for him to find his stride and return to game shape. Tony Wroten will step in as the starter for any games Carter-Williams misses, but he'll likely return to the bench upon the reigning Rookie of the Year's return.
Mon. Oct 13, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Grant (ankle) won't play in Tuesday's exhibition game, Tom Moore of the Bucks County Courier Times reports.
Impact: Grant continues to be held out with an ankle injury, and likely won't have a major role on the Sixers during his rookie season.
Mon. Oct 13, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Noel (thigh) participated in defensive drills during Monday's practice, Tom Moore of the Bucks County Courier Times reports.
Impact: There's no word as to when Noel will be able to take the court next, as he's dealing with a right thigh injury, but it seems like he's progressing in practice.
Oct 12, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Thompson (eye) will likely miss another week, CSN reports.
Impact: Thompson suffered a corneal abrasion last week and did not play in Friday's preseason game against Minnesota. Coach Brett Brown said they don't have a firm return timetable, but he expects Thompson to be sidelined for another week.
Fri. Oct 10, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Thompson (eye) will miss Friday's preseason game against the Timberwolves.
Impact: Thompson left Wednesday's preseason contest against the Bobcats after being hit in the eye and will miss Friday's game as a result of the injury. However, he is considered day-to-day and shouldn't be in danger of missing any time in the regular season.
Fri. Oct 10, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Noel won't play in Friday's preseason game against the Timberwolves for precautionary reasons.
Impact: Noel is dealing with a bit of a right thigh injury, and it will keep him out of Friday's preseason contest. He is considered day-to-day, so it doesn't appear to be anything that will keep the youngster out of an regular season action.
Thu. Oct 9, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Carter-Williams (shoulder) isn't likely to begin 5-on-5 work any time soon, Tom Moore of Calkins Media reports. "I still think (MCW) is still a few weeks away from full court 5-on-5," coach Brett Brown said.
Impact: This comes as no surprise, as Carter-Williams is yet to participate in practices since undergoing labrum surgery back in May. While he's likely to miss most or all of the preseason, there's still a chance he'll be ready to go on opening night. At this point, Carter-Williams should be evaluated on a week-to-week basis.
Wed. Oct 8, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Shved (back) scored 11 points (4-7 FG, 0-3 3P, 3-5 FT) with four rebounds and three assists in 23 minutes during Wednesday's preseason game against the Hornets.
Impact: It was a decent showing, especially considering the lower back soreness that slowed him down earlier in the week, but he could have a tough time holding off Caspar Ware for a bench spot with the Sixers.
Wed. Oct 8, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Ware scored 14 points (2-5 FG, 1-2 3P, 9-10 FT) with three rebounds and three assists in 23 minutes off the bench during Wednesday's preseason game against the Hornets.
Impact: He didn't get much run after joining the dumpster fire that was the Sixers' roster at the end of last season, but a strong showing in the summer league gave the club an excuse to bring him back for another look. Michael Carter-Williams and Tony Wroten have a firm grip on the top of the team's point guard depth chart, but if Ware keeps playing well he could steal a bench job away from Alexey Shved.
Wed. Oct 8, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Wroten scored 15 points (6-10 FG, 1-3 3P, 2-3 FT) with seven assists, six rebounds and a steal in 22 minutes during Wednesday's preseason game against the Hornets.
Impact: No matter how well he plays this preseason, Wroten will almost certainly head to the bench once Michael Carter-Williams is back on the court after his shoulder surgery, but he should be a useful weapon (perhaps the only useful weapon) in the Sixers' second unit this season.
Wed. Oct 8, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Noel scored 10 points (5-13 FG, 0-4 FT) with nine rebounds and three blocks in 31 minutes during Wednesday's preseason game against the Hornets.
Impact: Through two preseason games, Noel is a disconcerting 0-for-6 from the free throw line. Given that he shot just 53% from the charity stripe in his one and only college season, it's a fair question to wonder how much damage the rookie will do to your fantasy team in that category while he's getting you the front court stats you crave.
Wed. Oct 8, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Thompson will not return to Wednesday's game against the Bobcats after being hit in the eye and suffering a corneal abrasion, the Philly Inquirer reports.
Impact: Thompson got the start in Wednesday night's preseason game, but was forced from the outing early in the first quarter. In the three minutes he played, Thompson went 1-for-2 from the floor, with two points and one rebound. We should get an update after the game on how long this could keep him out for.
Wed. Oct 8, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Carter-Williams (shoulder) won't play in Wednesday's preseason game, the Charlotte Observer's Rick Bonnell reports.
Impact: He still hasn't been cleared to scrimmage in practice, so it's no surprise he'll sit out Wednesday's exhibition. His status for the start of the regular season isn't believed to be in jeopardy, but it's worth checking on his status before drafting him in fantasy.
