Joel Embiid double-doubles in win over the BullsMay 04, 2021 | 11:13 AM
Joel Embiid totaled 13 points (4-13 FG, 0-3 3PT, 5-6 FT), ten rebounds, three assists, and three blocks in 33 minutes in the Sixers' 106-94 win over the Bulls on Monday.
Writer's Analysis: Embiid double-doubled in the Sixers' win over the Bulls, making it his second consecutive double-double performance. Although that is neat and all, he has been a shell of himself as of late, which could raise some concerns regarding his elite status as a must-start fantasy pay. The Sixers have seven more games to go till the end of the regular season, and these games can be a perfect balance of competition for the "fading" MVP hopeful. The Pelicans, Pacers, Heat, and Magic all bring disruptive tendencies that could force Embiid to recapture his rhythm, but only time will tell. Until then, feel free to play him at a discount while hoping for a 30.0 point game outburst to bolster your lineup.
