Henry Sims is doing his best to stay focused while playing a lesser role.
"I've been in this league, and for the short amount of time I've been in it, I've been through it all - trades, bench, starting, sitting in a suit - I just look at it as another thing that I've just got to be a pro about," Sims said. "I'm just trying to sharpen my fundamentals so when my name's called, I'm going to be ready." Sims actually played 12.5 minutes on Sunday, but he's had a nonexistent role since the Sixers have turned to their other frontcourt options. He's not on the fantasy radar. Mar 30 - 1:47 PM

Henry Sims has been a DNP-CD for the 76ers past three games.

"I would suspect that he wouldn't be [OK with becoming a bystander]," Brown said. "I wouldn't blame or begrudge him at all. He's a competitor. That's just where we are at." Sims doesn't offer that much upside to begin with, and with him currently behind Furkan Aldemir in the rotation, he belongs on the waiver wire in all leagues.

Contrary to a previous report, Henry Sims is not starting vs. the Hawks on Saturday.

He picked up a DNP-CD vs. the Jazz on Friday, so Sims likely won't see a lot of minutes vs. the Hawks tonight. Leave Sims on the wire.
Mar 7 - 7:43 PM

Henry Sims played nine minutes on Wednesday with two points, four rebounds and three steals against the Bucks.

The 76ers added Thomas Robinson and most of T-Rob's minutes came from Henry Sims. This will likely continue, so Sims is not going to be worth owning in even 20-team leagues.
Feb 25 - 10:57 PM

Henry Sims will start against the Heat on Monday.

He'll start next to Nerlens Noel in the frontcourt and he should see more playing time with the Sixers using their forwards more where they should be and not at center. Still, Sims is not a fantasy option. The other starters are Isaiah Canaan, Robert Covington, Luc Mbah a Moute and Noel.
Feb 23 - 6:28 PM

Henry Sims moved into Philly's starting lineup vs. the Magic, finishing a road loss with eight points on 3-of-8 shooting, eight rebounds, one assist and four turnovers.

He played 19 minutes and started because Luc Mbah a Moute wasn't with the team, so he may return to the bench on Monday. Tonight's line, combined with Sims' perpetual lack of defensive stats, should be enough to scare away fantasy owners.
Feb 22 - 9:13 PM

Henry Sims will replace Luc Mbah a Moute in the starting lineup for Sunday's game vs. the Magic.

The 76ers will need all the size they can muster against Nikola Vucevic and the Magic, so this is likely a matchup driven move. Sims' game doesn't translate to fantasy very well, and with season averages of just 8.8 points and 5.3 boards in 20.3 minutes per game, he's only worth a look in deeper leagues.
Feb 22 - 5:34 PM

Henry Sims will start on Monday night against the Pelicans.

Sims is starting instead of K.J. McDaniels because New Orleans has a big frontline. When starting at center this season, Sims is averaging 10.3 points and 5.8 rebounds on 48.1 percent shooting.
Jan 26 - 12:31 PM

Henry SIms (ankle) will play against the Raptors on Friday.

He had a double-double on Wednesday, but that was due to the 76ers missing Nerlens Noel and Luc Mbah a Moute -- both are back tonight. Sims is only a low-upside play in very deep leagues.
Jan 23 - 5:27 PM

Henry Sims (ankle) is listed as questionable for Friday's game vs. the Raptors.

This is the first we've heard of an ankle injury for Sims, who may have tweaked it during Thursday's practice. If he can't suit up, more minutes will be available for Nerlens Noel (illness), Furkan Aldemir and Malcolm Thomas.
Jan 23 - 10:10 AM

Henry Sims double-doubled against the Knicks on Wednesday with 11 points, 12 rebounds and two assists in 32 minutes.

He picked up some extra playing time with Nerlens Noel (illness) out of the lineup. Sims doesn't really do much on defense and isn't a very effective scorer, so fantasy owners don't need to be too aggressive in grabbing him.
Jan 21 - 10:55 PM

Henry Sims will start in place of Luc Mbah a Moute (knee) on Monday against the Wizards.

This is the second time in the past week Sims has been sprung into action as the starter. He has low usage and doesn't block shots, so there's little reason to be excited about him tonight.
Jan 19 - 2:13 PM

Robert Covington will replace Henry Sims in the starting lineup for Friday's game against the Pelicans.

Sims' limited value will take a bit of a hit with the move to the bench, and on such a busy Friday night, there should be better options out there in most leagues.
Jan 16 - 6:22 PM

Henry Sims will start in place of Robert Covington (shoulder) on Wednesday.

He always seems to find a way to start with the 76ers at less than 100 percent. Sims is usually very quiet on the stat sheet, so don't run to the wire to grab him or anything.
Jan 14 - 7:29 PM

Henry Sims will come off the bench against the Pacers on Saturday.

Apparently coach Brett Brown wants to put Nerlens Noel on Roy Hibbert, which should be interesting. Sims doesn't do much anyway with little defensive stats, so he can remain on the wire unless then Sixers get hit with a ton of injuries.
