Michael Carter-Williams cooled off in Wednesday's finale, hitting just 3-of-10 shots for 12 points, six rebounds and four assists, but also hit three 3-pointers in a win over the Heat.

MCW should easily win the Rookie of the Year award and had a nice year, despite some injuries and inconsistent play. He's going to be a popular fantasy point guard option next season and it's kind of scary to think about how good he might be a couple years from now.
Apr 16 - 11:59 PM

Thaddeus Young had 20 points, nine rebounds and two more steals in Wednesday's season finale win over the Heat.

The Sixers somehow beat the Heat twice this season, although it's not fair to call the Miami team that took the court tonight the Heat. Henry Sims, MCW, James Anderson, Brandon Davies and Caspar Ware all scored in double figures in the meaningless game. Young had a great season and his steals and threes, along with his strong offense and rebounding, were pleasant surprises this season.
Apr 16 - 11:56 PM

Michael Carter-Williams, James Anderson, Adonis Thomas, Thaddeus Young and Henry Sims are starting for the Sixers on tank day.

MCW will hopefully go out with a bang, while Young might be playing his last game as a Sixer. And Sims could have another solid line tonight, while this will be one of the first times we'll get a long look at Thomas.

Tony Wroten said that he's learned to "pick his spots" for passes this season, to cut down on his 2.8 turnovers per game.

"This season, I learned a lot," Wroten said. "I don’t try to make the home runs as much. I try to make the right play." While his passing is a work in progress, there's nothing wrong with Wroten's ability to get into the paint -- he took a whopping 72.4 percent of his FG attempts within eight feet of the hoop this season.

Arnett Moultrie has rejoined the 76ers after serving a five-game suspension for violating the NBA's anti-drug policy, and he called the suspension his "wake-up call."

Moultrie was recovering from ankle surgery to start the season, but he gained weight during his rehab and wasn't in playing condition upon his return. Sixers coach Brett Brown resisted playing him and Moultrie even spent some time in the D-League prior to his suspension, so his season couldn't have gone much worse. Brown summed up the situation, saying, "If Arnett takes things extremely serious, if Arnett understands what it really, really takes to cultivate his obvious skills, then, yes, he can [make it in the league]."
Apr 15 - 2:57 PM

Tony Wroten scored 20 points off the bench during Monday's 113-108 win over the Celtics, adding two boards, four assists, two steals and seven turnovers.

The Sixers had a 26-game losing streak this year, but they won't have the worst record because they were out-tanked by the Milwaukee Bucks. Wroten was horrible with the Grizzlies last season, had one of the worst showings of any player in Las Vegas Summer League, and yet he was still able to play well with the Sixers this season.
Apr 14 - 10:35 PM

Jarvis Varnado (heel) played 16 minutes against the Celtics on Monday with four points, one board, one assist and two blocks.

He sat out on Saturday due to soreness in his heel and there was no word on his status before the game started. Varnado looked good in the D-League this year for his high block totals and it has translated with 29 blocks in just 22 games with the Sixers. He still has little fantasy value outside of that, though.
Apr 14 - 10:32 PM

Michael Carter-Williams grabbed a career-high 14 rebounds against the Celtics on Monday to go with 21 points, six assists, four steals and two blocks in 34 minutes.

He shot 9-of-13 from the field and has really finished the season on a high note after hitting the rookie wall in a big way a month ago. Carter-Williams shot 52.6 percent in his previous six April games, averaging 18.0 points, 6.7 boards, 6.8 assists, 0.7 steals and just 1.5 turnovers in that span. His strong finish should give him the Rookie of the Year award.
Apr 14 - 10:28 PM

Byron Mullens hit 6-of-12 shots and a 3-pointer for 13 points and seven rebound in Saturday's loss to Charlotte.

He might be worth using in deeper leagues over the last two games, assuming he keeps getting 20 minutes a night in a couple meaningless games.
Apr 12 - 10:23 PM

Michael Carter-Williams had 23 points, seven rebounds, eight assists and a steal, hitting 7-of-11 shots and 9-of-10 free throws in Saturday's loss to Charlotte.

MCW looks like a near lock for Rookie of the Year, and might have sewed it up with this line.
Apr 12 - 10:22 PM

Jarvis Varnado will not play at Charlotte on Saturday due to a sore right heel.

This leaves Philly even thinner than usual behind starting center Henry Sims, and Al Jefferson should have a field day in the paint. Varnado should be considered day-to-day in advance of Monday's home game.
Apr 12 - 6:40 PM

Tony Wroten scored 18 points off the bench on Friday, hitting 6-of-14 shots (0-for-3 from deep, 6-of-8 from the line) with two rebounds, three assists and one steal in 21 minutes.

Wroten has been very inconsistent lately but he could be ready to heat up. James Anderson was limited to just five points, three rebounds, one three and one block in his 30 minutes, and it's possible these two will trade off having serviceable games going forward.
Apr 12 - 1:39 AM

Byron Mullens got back on the floor in Friday's game, scoring five points with four rebounds, one steal and one three in 18 minutes off the bench.

Mullens was a healthy DNP on Wednesday and it's possible the Sixers will give him a look-see, but owners can watch that action from the wire.
Apr 12 - 1:33 AM

Michael Carter-Williams hit 7-of-12 shots for 19 points, nine rebounds and eight assists in 37 minutes of Wednesday's loss to the Raptors.

The ROY race appears to be between MCW and Victor Oladipo, but really, MCW has put up the better numbers all year. The only thing more we'd ask of him is to officially change his name to MCW so we don't have to constantly mess with that hyphen. He's young and trying to win a major award, so we'd be surprised to see him slow down before this thing is over.
Apr 9 - 10:56 PM

James Anderson hit 6-of-14 shots and five 3-pointers for 17 points, six rebounds, three assists and a block in Wednesday's loss to the Raptors.

Anderson has been hit-or-miss all season and had scored a total of 12 points over his previous three games, so don't kick yourself if you didn't see this coming. No one did.
