Henry Sims scored 14 points on 6-of-8 shooting with three rebounds and three blocks over 30 minutes in Friday's loss to the Rockets.

Sims is going to post a solid line here and there but his inconsistency makes him a Plan B or C for owners in standard leagues.
Nov 15 - 1:03 AM

Henry Sims played 16 minutes against the Cavs on Thursday with four points, five rebounds, one steal and one block.

There is a reason why the Cavs didn't want him on their team last season. Sims will see his fantasy value head south for the winter while Nerlens Noel is active.
Nov 14 - 12:34 AM

Henry Sims was solid in another fill-in start for Nerlens Noel (ankle), finishing Sunday's lopsided loss with 12 points, eight rebounds, three assists and one steal in 29 minutes.

He only turned the ball over once and his line looks even better when contrasted with Brandon Davies, who came off the bench for just three points, seven rebounds and five turnovers in 27 minutes. The Sixers don't play again until Thursday, at which point Noel may be ready to return, so this game shouldn't inspire owners to pluck Sims off the waiver wire.
Nov 9 - 9:30 PM

Henry Sims will likely draw another start Sunday with the news that Nerlens Noel (ankle) won't play.

He had a surprisingly good game on Friday with 16 points, eight boards, five assists, and one 3-pointer in 26 minutes but he hasn't been consistent all season. Sims may make for a decent plug-and-play but owners in standard leagues can probably do better. Brandon Davies should also see an uptick in minutes.
Nov 9 - 11:17 AM

Henry Sims came out of nowhere against the Bulls on Friday with 16 points, eight rebounds, five assists and one 3-pointer in 26 minutes.

It was his first 3-pointer of his career and he was very good on defense, as well. Sims is likely headed back to the bench once Nerlens Noel (ankle) is back on the floor, so he can be left on the wire in most leagues.
Nov 7 - 10:57 PM

Henry Sims will start at center on Friday against the Bulls.

While Davies has outplayed Sims by a mile, the team just needs help in the second unit right now. Tony Wroten is capable of taking on most of the shots with the first string guys, so fantasy owners shouldn't put too much stock into Sims starting. Still, he's an option as a plug-and-play guy.
Nov 7 - 5:25 PM

Henry Sims is likely going to start against the Bulls on Friday.

Nerlens Noel (ankle) won't play, so Sims will likely be next to Brandon Davies. Sims ran with the first team in practice on Thursday and will get a chance to redeem himself. If you're looking to capitalize on Noel missing time, Davies is the preferred option.
Nov 7 - 4:32 PM

Henry Sims has lost his job and came off the bench to hit 1-of-4 shots for three points, eight rebounds, two steals and three blocks on Wednesday.

Nerlens Noel went down with an ankle injury tonight, so Sims could find himself getting solid minutes on Friday. But he had a bad preseason and has struggled thus far, which is why he lost his job. As of now, we'd rather own Brandon Davies, who is starting and had 20 points tonight.
Nov 5 - 10:03 PM

Henry Sims is not in the starting lineup against the Magic on Wednesday.

He's been struggling for about 1.5 months and he may have lost his job for good. Sims was a revelation down the stretch last season, but the book might just be out on him now. He can be cut in just about all leagues.
Nov 5 - 5:31 PM

Henry Sims practiced with the second unit again on Tuesday, and it looks like his starting spot is in serious trouble.

He initially lost his starting spot due to an illness, but Nerlens Noel looked comfortable at center in a loss to Houston so the lineup switch looks permanent for now. Brandon Davies will likely slide into the starting power forward spot and is worth a look in almost all leagues, while Henry Sims can safely be cut in standard leagues.

Henry Sims played through his respiratory illness on Monday, logging 13 minutes with two points, four rebounds and one assist.

Sims has 2.5 strikes against him right now with owners and the only thing that he's got going for him is that this illness might be the root of his issues. Never having shown much upside, if you want to cut him for a hot free agent you have our blessing.
Nov 3 - 10:28 PM

Henry Sims is coming off the bench against the Rockets on Monday.

He has an illness and it's not clear if that is the reason he's with the second unit. Sims has been uninspiring this season in three games, averaging 8.7 points, 5.3 boards and 0.3 blocks on 42.3 percent from the field. Fantasy owners in standard leagues can probably look elsewhere despite his tremendous opportunity.
Nov 3 - 7:05 PM

Henry Sims (upper respiratory infection) will play Monday vs. the Rockets.

Head coach Brett Brown said he didn't know exactly how many minutes he will play, but he is a go none-the-less. Sims has been unimpressive despite the starting role for the 76ers, and is averaging just 8.7 points and 5.3 rebounds through 25 minutes of action. Feel free to move on for a hot free agent if you see one on your waiver wire.
Nov 3 - 5:42 PM

Henry Sims (upper respiratory infection) is a game-time decision on Monday after missing shootaround.

Sims has been unspectacular as the Sixers starting center this season with averages of 7.0 points and 5.0 rebounds on 42.3% shooting, and owners who snagged him at the end of their drafts have to be hoping for more. If Sims isn't able to suit up, Nerlens Noel, Brandon Davies and Malcolm Thomas should all see more minutes, but Davies would start alongside Noel if Sims can't go.
