Furkan Aldemir did not score in 19 minutes during his first start of his career on Wednesday, adding five rebounds and three blocks.

He attempted just one shot from the field, which isn't a surprise based on his 7.6 usage rate on the season. Aldemir really has no offensive game, so he's going to have a tough time being a fantasy asset even if he somehow gets 25-28 minutes.
Jan 21 - 10:51 PM

Furkan Aldemir will start against the Knicks on Wednesday.

His nickname is Mr. Rebound and he's held up his reputation this season with 3.9 boards per game in 10.5 minutes. Aldemir has a 7.6 usage rate this season, so his potential fantasy owners shouldn't be expecting him to score much. He'll have a chance for double-digit boards, though.
Jan 21 - 5:29 PM

Furkan Aldemir (heel) returned to action on Friday in a five-minute effort.

Aldemir's contract is the only reason we've tracked the guy and he has yet to really show his stuff at the NBA level. He can be watched from the wire.

Furkan Aldemir (heel) is available to play against the Blazers on Friday.

He's not necessarily a lock to be in the rotation tonight after missing three games. Aldemir is very raw and won't make much of an impact this season.

Furkan Aldemir (heel) is a game-time decision to play against the Blazers on Friday.

He has been out for a week due to his injury suffered in practice on Dec. 17. Aldemir is not going to get much playing time and he's a major project for Philly. He's not worth owning in almost any league.

Furkan Aldemir (heel) will miss Tuesday's game against Miami.

There isn't much of a fantasy impact here, but it's looking like Aldemir's plantar fasciitis may keep him out for extended time. Owners in all but the deepest of fantasy leagues can feel free to move on from Aldemir.
Tue, Dec 23, 2014 11:55:00 AM

Furkan Aldemir (heel) is out for Sunday's game against the Magic.

He is dealing with plantar fasciitis so it wouldn't be surprising to see him miss additional time. Aldemir is far off of the fantasy radar in most leagues.
Sun, Dec 21, 2014 11:10:00 AM

Furkan Aldemir (heel) will not play against the Hornets on Friday.

He has an Achilles issue and the 76ers could sit him down in hopes this doesn't linger. Aldemir is a major project and is going take a while before he's on the fantasy radar.
Fri, Dec 19, 2014 05:23:00 PM

Furkan Aldemir (heel) is doubtful for Friday's game against the Hornets.

Aldemir missed practice due to the plantar fasciitis he's dealing with on his right foot, and while head coach Brett Brown contends, "it's not as bad as it sounds," Aldemir is not looking likely for Friday's game against Charlotte. He played just 10 minutes in his NBA debut on Monday, so he can safely be left on the waiver wire.

Furkan Aldemir suffered a bruised right heel and missed part of practice on Wednesday.

There is no indication that he will miss any time, but we will still monitor his status closely. Aldemir made his NBA debut on Monday, but saw just 10 minutes of action and looked very raw. You can leave him on the waiver wire in almost all leagues.
Wed, Dec 17, 2014 01:44:00 PM

Furkan Aldemir scored two points in his NBA debut on Monday with two rebounds and one assist in 10 minutes.

He saw first half action tonight, so it wasn't just garbage time. Aldemir is still nowhere near getting on the radar in most leagues and he looked very raw tonight. He's only worth a look in ridiculously deep leagues.
Mon, Dec 15, 2014 10:15:00 PM

Furkan Aldemir is officially active on Monday against the Celtics.

"Welcome to Philly. You've got Sullinger,"coach Brett Brown said. It's an interesting quote from Brown and perhaps he's going to get in the rotation. However, fantasy owners should take a wait-and-see approach in almost any case. Henry Sims would likely lose minutes, if Aldemir does play.

Sixers sign F Furkan Adlemir.

Aldemir will be immediately active, but it's not clear what his role in the rotation will be just yet. He can be left on the waiver wire.
Mon, Dec 15, 2014 12:35:00 PM

Furkan Aldemir has reportedly landed a four-year, $12 million deal with the 76ers, with the first two-years guaranteed.

Aldemir could be ready to go for Monday's game vs. Boston, but owners in standard leagues can use a wait-and-see approach with the Turkish big man, as his upside is limited.
