Dario Saric went off for 27 points, 10 rebounds, four assists and three 3-pointers during Philly's 114-112 loss in Boston on Wednesday, going 8-of-14 from the field in 40 minutes.
Saric added a steal and a block and his stellar play nearly helped Philly force Game 6 before succumbing down the stretch. He hauled in four offensive boards, took advantage of mismatches vs. smaller players, and had a few beautiful passes to set up teammates in the paint. The Sixers' willingness to play Ben Simmons as a full-time PG was a blessing for Saric's fantasy value this season, and we're expecting similar top-75 value in 2018-19. May 9 - 11:39 PM

Date:

Dario Saric scored a game-high 25 points with eight rebounds, four assists and no turnovers in 39 minutes in Philadelphia's Game 4 win on Monday.

Saric's 25 was the most he's had all postseason and came when Philly needed it most facing elimination. He'll need to step up again on the road in Game 5 if the Sixers want to keep their season alive. This was his fourth game this postseason with 20 points or more. J.J. Reddick is the only Sixer with more with five.
May 7 - 9:14 PM

Dario Saric hit 8-of-20 shots and three 3-pointers for 23 points, eight rebounds, three assists, five steals and a block in 36 minutes of Monday's loss to the Heat.

Saric was in foul trouble for most of the second half but was able to stay on the court and hit some big shots. In the end, the Sixers had too many late turnovers and took some crazy shots that didn't fall, giving the Heat the win to tie the series at 1-1. Saric's fantasy line was tasty tonight and he's going to be a big factor for Philly, with or without Joel Embiid.
Apr 16 - 10:56 PM

Dario Saric scored 20 points with six rebounds, three assists and four 3-pointers in 31 minutes against the Heat during a Game 1 win on Saturday.

The scoring certainly jumps out, but Saric's hustle on defense was big time to create turnovers and force the Heat into tough shots. Saric's efficiency has been a major story on the year and him shooting 39.3 percent from deep has added another layer to this Philly offense.
Apr 14 - 10:57 PM

Dario Saric (face) sank 10-of-19 shots for 24 points on Wednesday, going 3-of-7 from deep with five rebounds, one assist and just one turnover in 28 minutes.

Saric was dealing with a lacerated upper lip and chipped tooth, but fortunately he avoided anything more serious like a fracture or concussion. He's ready to roll for the playoffs, with the Sixers drawing the Heat as their first-round opponent.
Apr 11 - 11:46 PM

Dario Saric (mouth) will be available to play on Wednesday against the Bucks.

A busted lip and tooth weren't going to keep The Homie out of this one, so owners can feel free to fire him up for the final game of the season. This is an important game, so owners shouldn't be worried about any sort of minutes limit.
Apr 11 - 6:11 PM

Dario Saric (mouth) is probable to play Wednesday against the Bucks.

Saric cut his lip and chipped a tooth on Tuesday after colliding with John Collins, and did not return to that game, but it sounds like he'll be out there for an important matchup against Milwaukee tonight. Check back for official confirmation on his status closer to tip-off.
Apr 11 - 12:59 PM

Dario Saric (face) will not return to Tuesday's game vs. the Hawks.

He collided with John Collins on the first play and has been in the locker room since. He's been diagnosed with a lacerated upper lip and chipped left central incisor (big tooth), but should be considered day-to-day -- he'll have a dentist appointment in the morning to determine his status for Wednesday. Ersan Ilyasova will pick up most of his minutes tonight.
Apr 10 - 8:13 PM

Dario Saric scored nine points on 4-of-10 shooting Sunday, to go with one 3-pointer, five rebounds and five assists in 27 minutes.

It wasn't the best stat line, but this was certainly an improvement from Friday's three-point, 1-of-9 shooting disaster, and as an added bonus for 9-cat owners, Saric didn't turn the ball over once. With the win, Philly notched their 50th W of the season, which is the first time they've accomplished that feat since 2001.
Apr 8 - 4:47 PM

Dario Saric returned from a two-game absence on Friday, making 1-of-9 from the field for three points with three rebounds, three assists and one 3-pointer in 25 minutes.

It's fair to say he wasn't healthy today as he gets over an elbow injury. Hopefully, he's over his injury before the postseason. Saric has been a knockdown shooter all season and has been a strong all-around scorer.
Apr 6 - 10:32 PM

Dario Saric (elbow) will play against the Cavs on Friday, and he will be in the starting lineup.

He's back after missing the last two games. This is the biggest game of the season for the 76ers, so maybe he's not 100 percent. Plus, his right elbow is his shooting elbow, which means his shot could be affected.
Apr 6 - 5:18 PM

Dario Saric (elbow) is listed as questionable for Friday's game vs. Cleveland.

This is merely a game-notes designation, so we'll take it with a grain of salt. We should have an update on Saric's status after Friday morning's shootaround. Saric has missed each of the Sixers last three games. If he is once again unable to play, Ersan Ilyasova will draw another start.
Apr 5 - 7:36 PM

Dario Saric (elbow) is out for Wednesday's game against the Pistons, but he's hopeful to return for Friday's game against the Cavs.

Ersan Ilyasova is getting another start tonight with Saric out, and he's worth using in most leagues. Tonight will be Saric's third straight game on the sidelines with the skin infection, but he shouldn't be out much longer.
Apr 4 - 7:15 PM

Dario Saric (elbow) will not play on Wednesday against the Pistons.

To be clear, Saric is out for tonight's game due to "cellulitis" in his right elbow, which is basically a skin infection, and it seems like they're just being cautious holding him out tonight on the first leg of a back-to-back set given it's a matchup with the 25-52 Nets. Ersan Ilyasova will earn another start tonight, and he's someone to think about streaming.

RotoGrinders.com Daily Slant: Ersan Ilyasova started at PF in Saric's absence on Sunday and we saw Amir Johnson with a notable uptick in playing time (31 mins vs. CHA), so both players get large value upticks as a result. Johnson remains a volatile target, but Ilyasova is viable in any format. Ben Simmons also gets a 6.1% boost in usage and scores almost six additional fantasy points per 36 minutes with Embiid and Saric off the floor.
Apr 3 - 5:25 PM

Dario Saric (cellulitis in his right elbow) will not play Tuesday against the Nets.

Saric received treatment on his right elbow on Monday, and he'll be re-evaluated tomorrow, so hopefully, him sitting out Tuesday's game is just the 76ers being cautious with it being the first of a back-to-back set. Ersan Ilyasova should earn another start with Saric out, and he'll make for an attractive streamer with a favorable matchup against Brooklyn. In case you're wondering, cellulitis is basically a skin infection.
