Dario Saric scored 16 points with six rebounds, two assists, three steals and two 3-pointers in 34 minutes against the Celtics on Thursday.
He's been one of the most consistent players on the team for scoring with double-digit points in every active game dating back to Nov. 28. Saric's better-than-expected season should continue going forward because the 76ers are clearly not in a rush to bring Markelle Fultz back. Don't expect a drop-off from his mid-round value in standard leagues. Jan 18 - 9:55 PM

Date:

Dario Saric struggled with his shot on Monday, going 3-of-10 from the field and 4-of-4 from the stripe on his way to 11 points in 33 minutes.

While Saric struggled with his shot for much of the game, he hit some big shots in the clutch to keep Philly on top in Monday's tightly contested matchup, and he rounded out his stat line with one 3-pointer, seven rebounds, one assist, one steal, one block and two turnovers. He's been playing some phenomenal basketball over the past month, so it would be surprising to see him lose his spot in the starting five if and when Markelle Fultz (shoulder) is able to return to the court.

Dario Saric tied his season-high with 27 points on Sunday, making 9-of-13 FGs and 5-of-5 FTs with four 3-pointers, four rebounds, three steals, two assists and one block.

The steals were also a season-high for Dario, and he's now scored 20+ points in three straight games for the first time in his career. He did his damage in only 30 minutes tonight and is surging for fortunate fantasy owners, though it should be noted that his recent hot streak has come against the defenses of the Suns, Nuggets and Blazers. He'll get a stiffer test vs. San Antonio on Wednesday.
Jan 1 - 12:58 AM

Dario Saric scored 20 points with nine rebounds, six assists, one block and three 3-pointers during a 107-102 win over the Nuggets on Saturday.

It's one of his best five-game samples of his career, averaging 18.0 points, 7.4 boards, 5.4 assists, 0.8 steals, 0.4 blocks and 2.4 treys on 50.0 percent from the field and 87.5 percent from the line. Markelle Fultz (shoulder) getting hurt has been huge for The Homie Dario and his play could be part of the reason why the 76ers aren't rushing back the 2017 No. 1 pick.

Dario Saric hit 10-of-12 shots and 5-of-6 3-pointers for 25 points, nine rebounds, four assists and two steals in 34 minutes of Thursday's 114-110 loss to the Blazers.

The Sixers blew an 18-point lead with four minutes left in the third quarter, but the Homie wasn't to blame, as he played one of his best games of the season. After a notoriously slow start to the season, Saric killed December, scoring in double figures in all 12 of his games and came into the night averaging 15.5 points, 8.0 rebounds, 3.9 assists, 0.8 steals and 1.7 3-pointers for the month. He could be even better in January if Robert Covington's finger injury is going to cause him to miss games.
Fri, Dec 29, 2017 01:25:00 AM

Dario Saric went 4-of-15 from the field and 2-of-2 from the line on Monday, on his way to 10 points, three rebounds, three assists and two turnovers in 33 minutes.

Saric got locked up by Kristaps Porzingis, which wouldn’t be the first time an opposing power forward has struggled to get things going against The Unicorn. He also blew quite a few wide-open looks and missed all six of his 3-point attempts, but he should be able to bounce-back on Thursday with a much more favorable matchup against the Trail Blazers.
Mon, Dec 25, 2017 03:20:00 PM

Dario Saric hit 7-of-10 shots and a 3-pointer on his way to 18 points, 10 rebounds, nine assists, two steals and two blocks in 37 minutes of Thursday's loss to the Raptors.

This might have been the best fantasy line of Saric's young career and the nine assists were a career high, while he hadn't blocked a shot since Nov. 27, a span of 11 straight games without a swat. The numbers were enhanced by his efficiency and he also hit 3-of-3 free throws to top it off. Saric has scored in double figures in every one of his December games and is one of the hottest forwards out there right now. His dreadfully slow start to the season is a distant memory, but he won't have the ball in his hands quite as much when Joel Embiid finally returns from his sore back.
Thu, Dec 21, 2017 09:50:00 PM

Dario Saric hit 10-of-19 shots and three 3-pointers for a season-high 27 points, eight rebounds, one assist and two steals in 31 minutes of Monday's 117-115 loss to the Bulls.

The Homie has scored in double figures in nine straight games and is averaging 17.4 points, 8.8 rebounds, 3.6 assists, 1.0 steals and 2.4 3-pointers on 45 percent shooting over his last five games. After a slow start to the season, Saric is really coming on for the Sixers. And on nights when Joel Embiid is out, like this one, he's nearly a must-start player.
Mon, Dec 18, 2017 10:50:00 PM

Dario Saric started again on Tuesday and had 14 points, eight rebounds, three assists, a steal and three 3-pointers on 5-of-10 shooting in 40 minutes.

Saric got off to a really slow start this season, but has scored in double figures in seven straight games and is averaging 14.7 points, 9.7 rebounds, 4.3 assists and 2.3 3-pointers over his last three. Make sure he's not somehow available in your league.
Wed, Dec 13, 2017 01:22:00 AM

Dario Saric finished with 17 points, nine rebounds and six assists across 34 minutes in Saturday's 105-98 loss in Cleveland.

Saric took the most field-goal attempts of any 76ers player, hitting 8-of-17 from the floor, hitting 1-of-6 from deep, while turning it over four times. It wasn't a great line, but he picked up the offensive slack with Joel Embiid out. He was also facing a tough defender in Jae Crowder, so it was a pretty good night.

Dario Saric (eye) will play on Saturday night against the Cavs.

Presumably, he's going to start in this one after missing Thursday. Saric is probably going to be matched up against Jae Crowder in this game, which could be good news for the Cavs. Whatever the case, start Saric like you normally would.
Sat, Dec 9, 2017 07:00:00 PM

Dario Saric (eye) is a game-time call against the Cavs on Saturday.

He is going through warmups right now with goggles on. If he can't go, the 76ers will probably go with Robert Covington over at the four again and start Jerryd Bayless like they did on Thursday. Or maybe they go with more size and start Timothe Luwawu-Cabarrot.
Sat, Dec 9, 2017 06:39:00 PM

Dario Saric (eye) is questionable for Saturday's game vs. the Cavs.

It appears Saric is closer to doubtful than questionable. Brett Brown said this to reporters on Saturday morning: "If you stick a gun to my head, I’m expecting him not to play." Joel Embiid (rest) has already been ruled out of Saturday's game. If Saric is unable to play, the Sixers are expected to start Richaun Holmes at power forward and Amir Johnson at center. Trevor Booker will also make his Philly debut and could see additional minutes off the bench.

Dario Saric (eye) has been ruled out for Thursday's game vs. the Lakers.

Jerryd Bayless will move into the starting lineup, with Robert Covington shifting to the PF spot, and we could also see a bit more of Amir Johnson off the bench since Trevor Booker isn't in town yet. There's no obvious winner here but Bayless is worth a glance as a DFS punt.
Thu, Dec 7, 2017 06:24:00 PM

Dario Saric (eye) is questionable for Thursday's game vs. the Lakers.

He was poked in the eye at Wednesday's practice and is dealing with a corneal abrasion. Saric has logged 30+ minutes in six straight games, so if he can't play that would leave a huge hole in Philly's rotation. If that's the case, the 76ers will likely use a committee approach to absorb his minutes with several guys getting a bump in value. We'll know more later this evening.
