Latest News
Mar. 24 8:26 AM PT9:26 AM MT10:26 AM CT11:26 AM ET15:26 GMT23:26 8:26 AM MST10:26 AM EST19:26 UAE16:2611:26 ET9:26 AM CTNaN:� - Okafor did not play Friday in Chicago due to a sore right knee and he's out again Sunday.
Analysis: He's been in-and-out of the lineup because of the knee problem, stemming from offseason surgery, and Okafor has struggled lately even when taking the court. The big man has totaled 20 points and six rebounds in his last three games as the 76ers have limited his playing time, so Okafor is no longer a viable fantasy play.
Mar. 22 6:49 PM PT7:49 PM MT8:49 PM CT9:49 PM ET1:49 GMT9:49 6:49 PM MST8:49 PM EST5:49 UAE (+1)02:4921:49 ET7:49 PM CTNaN:� - Jahlil Okafor scored six points Wednesday on 3-of-6 shooting as the Philadelphia 76ers fell to the Oklahoma City Thunder 122-97. Okafor pulled down two rebounds and dished out two assists, tallying a plus-minus of -16 in his 16:43 of playing time.
Mar. 19 12:02 PM PT1:02 PM MT2:02 PM CT3:02 PM ET19:02 GMT3:02 12:02 PM MST2:02 PM EST23:02 UAE20:0215:02 ET1:02 PM CTNaN:� - Okafor was (knee) in the lineup Wednesday.
Analysis: It's the same knee that has bothered him virtually all season, so his playing status for the rest of the week is very up in the air.
Mar. 17 5:48 PM PT6:48 PM MT7:48 PM CT8:48 PM ET0:48 GMT8:48 5:48 PM MST7:48 PM EST4:48 UAE (+1)01:4820:48 ET6:48 PM CTNaN:� - Jahlil Okafor scored 10 points Friday, going 4 of 8 from the field, as the Philadelphia 76ers defeated the Dallas Mavericks 116-74. Okafor pulled down three rebounds and added an assist, tallying a plus-minus of +1 in his 21:28 of playing time. He added one block.
Mar. 15 9:42 PM PT10:42 PM MT11:42 PM CT12:42 AM ET4:42 GMT12:42 9:42 PM MST11:42 PM EST8:42 UAE05:420:42 ET10:42 PM CTNaN:� - Jahlil Okafor scored 22 points Tuesday on 8-of-15 shooting as the Philadelphia 76ers fell to the Golden State Warriors 106-104. Okafor pulled down six rebounds and added an assist, accumulating a plus-minus of -3 in his 23:27 of playing time. He added four blocks and one steal.
Analysis: The light appears to be back on for the second-year center, who had 23 points against the Lakers on Sunday and is averaging 18.8 on 56.9 percent shooting over his last four games. With Joel Embiid and Nerlens Noel both no longer part of the equation, Okafor has the opportunity to keep this hot stretch ongoing.
Mar. 12 8:53 PM PT9:53 PM MT10:53 PM CT11:53 PM ET3:53 GMT11:53 8:53 PM MST10:53 PM EST7:53 UAE (+1)04:5323:53 ET9:53 PM CTNaN:� - Jahlil Okafor scored 23 points Sunday on 8-of-12 shooting as the Philadelphia 76ers defeated the Los Angeles Lakers 118-116. Okafor grabbed four rebounds and dished out two assists, tallying a plus-minus of +16 in his 26:42 of playing time. He added one block and one steal.
Analysis: We're starting to see the real Jahlil lately, as he's averaging 17.7 points on 58.3 percent shooting along with 5.3 rebounds over a three-game tear. Okafor is a very hard player to trust in fantasy, but he's at least starting to show some semblance of consistency.
Mar. 11 3:21 PM PT4:21 PM MT5:21 PM CT6:21 PM ET23:21 GMT7:21 4:21 PM MST6:21 PM EST3:21 UAE (+1)00:2118:21 ET5:21 PM CTNaN:� - Jahlil Okafor scored 14 points Saturday, going 6 of 10 from the field, as the Philadelphia 76ers fell to the Los Angeles Clippers 112-100. Okafor pulled down four rebounds and had a season-high four assists, accumulating a plus-minus of -5 in his 20:59 on the floor. He added a career-best three steals.
Analysis: Okafor has started the last two games and totaled 30 points, 12 rebounds and five assists while shooting 13 of 24.
Mar. 10 10:27 PM PT11:27 PM MT12:27 AM CT1:27 AM ET6:27 GMT14:27 11:27 PM MST1:27 AM EST10:27 UAE07:271:27 ET12:27 AM CTNaN:� - Jahlil Okafor scored 16 points Thursday, going 7 of 14 from the field, as the Philadelphia 76ers fell to the Portland Trail Blazers 114-108 in overtime. Okafor pulled down eight rebounds and added an assist, accumulating a plus-minus of -3 in his 28:43 on the floor.
Mar. 4 12:21 PM PT1:21 PM MT2:21 PM CT3:21 PM ET20:21 GMT4:21 1:21 PM MST3:21 PM EST0:21 UAE (+1)21:2115:21 ET2:21 PM CTNaN:� - Okafor will start Thursday's game at Portland despite previously being doubtful due to a sore right knee.
Analysis: This comes as a surprise after Okafor missed the last two games and had battled knee problems all season.
Mar. 3 6:58 PM PT7:58 PM MT8:58 PM CT9:58 PM ET2:58 GMT10:58 7:58 PM MST9:58 PM EST6:58 UAE (+1)03:5821:58 ET8:58 PM CTNaN:� - Jahlil Okafor scored 12 points Friday, going 5 of 10 from the field, as the Philadelphia 76ers topped the New York Knicks 105-102. Okafor grabbed eight rebounds and added an assist, accumulating a plus-minus of +10 in his 19:51 of playing time. He added one block.
Mar. 1 6:49 PM PT7:49 PM MT8:49 PM CT9:49 PM ET2:49 GMT10:49 7:49 PM MST9:49 PM EST6:49 UAE (+1)03:4921:49 ET8:49 PM CTNaN:� - Jahlil Okafor scored six points Wednesday on 3-of-11 shooting as the Philadelphia 76ers lost to the Miami Heat 125-98. Okafor pulled down seven rebounds and dished out two assists, accumulating a plus-minus of -16 in his 22:28 on the floor. He added one block.
Feb. 27 5:57 PM PT6:57 PM MT7:57 PM CT8:57 PM ET1:57 GMT9:57 6:57 PM MST8:57 PM EST5:57 UAE (+1)02:5720:57 ET7:57 PM CTNaN:� - Jahlil Okafor scored four points Monday on 2-of-3 shooting as the Philadelphia 76ers lost to the Golden State Warriors 119-108. Okafor pulled down three rebounds and added an assist, tallying a plus-minus of -15 in his 17:23 of playing time.
Feb. 25 7:45 PM PT8:45 PM MT9:45 PM CT10:45 PM ET3:45 GMT11:45 8:45 PM MST10:45 PM EST7:45 UAE (+1)04:4522:45 ET9:45 PM CTNaN:� - Okafor was unleashed Saturday night at Madison Square Garden, where the 76ers center amassed a season-high 28 points on 11-of-19 shooting and grabbed 10 rebounds against the Knicks.
Analysis: This is a reminder of what Okafor is capable of when he's healthy and playing, though performances like this one have been scarce during a season in which he's been in and out of Brett Brown's rotation. With Nerlens Noel now out the door and himself a likely trade candidate this offseason, Okafor looms as a potential wild card for the fantasy stretch run.
Feb. 15 6:41 AM PT7:41 AM MT8:41 AM CT9:41 AM ET14:41 GMT22:41 7:41 AM MST9:41 AM EST18:41 UAE15:419:41 ET8:41 AM CTNaN:� - Okafor is expected to play off the bench Wednesday against the Celtics as the 76ers continue to explore trading him.
Analysis: Okafor didn't play in Philadelphia's last two games. The best bet for Okafor's future appears to be a fresh start with a new team.
Feb. 12 12:51 PM PT1:51 PM MT2:51 PM CT3:51 PM ET20:51 GMT4:51 1:51 PM MST3:51 PM EST0:51 UAE (+1)21:5115:51 ET2:51 PM CTNaN:� - Okafor did not travel with the 76ers for Monday's game in Charlotte as he remains the subject of trade rumors.
Analysis: Okafor also was held out of Saturday night's game amid the trade speculation. His opportunities have been limited in Philadelphia as he's played behind Joel Embiid and Nerlens Noel, so joining a new team could make Okafor a good fantasy option. In 22 starts - usually when Embiid was hurt - Okafor averaged 13.5 points and 5.4 rebounds.
Feb. 8 7:07 PM PT8:07 PM MT9:07 PM CT10:07 PM ET3:07 GMT11:07 8:07 PM MST10:07 PM EST7:07 UAE (+1)04:0722:07 ET9:07 PM CTNaN:� - Okafor had 20 points and eight rebounds in Wednesday's loss to the Spurs.
Analysis: It was Okafor's highest-scoring game since Jan. 14, though he has sat out seven games since then due to knee injuries.
Feb. 6 6:42 PM PT7:42 PM MT8:42 PM CT9:42 PM ET2:42 GMT10:42 7:42 PM MST9:42 PM EST6:42 UAE (+1)03:4221:42 ET8:42 PM CTNaN:� - Okafor scored 16 points for the 76ers in Monday's loss at Detroit after missing one game with a sore right knee.
Analysis: Okafor made 7 of 11 shots Monday but was just 2 of 7 from the foul line. The 76ers host the Spurs on Wednesday, and Okafor had nine points and nine rebounds at San Antonio last Thursday.
Feb. 4 3:24 PM PT4:24 PM MT5:24 PM CT6:24 PM ET23:24 GMT7:24 4:24 PM MST6:24 PM EST3:24 UAE (+1)00:2418:24 ET5:24 PM CTNaN:� - 76ers coach Brett Brown told reporters Okafor (sore right knee) will start Monday's game at Detroit.
Analysis: There's a good chance the second-year center will be on a minutes restriction, however. Okafor averaged 13.3 points, 4.7 rebounds and 23.8 minutes in recent starts in place of a still-injured Joel Embiid before being held out of Saturday's loss at Miami.
Feb. 2 7:03 AM PT8:03 AM MT9:03 AM CT10:03 AM ET15:03 GMT23:03 8:03 AM MST10:03 AM EST19:03 UAE16:0310:03 ET9:03 AM CTNaN:� - Okafor had 16 points in Wednesday's loss at Dallas but grabbed only one rebound in 24 minutes.
Analysis: The 2015 No. 3 overall pick continues to be a frustrating player to own, having played in just five of the Sixers' last 11 games but averaging 15.8 points over that span. Okafor's value is directly tied into whether or not Joel Embiid is in the lineup, which hasn't been the case more often than not of late.
Jan. 30 12:59 PM PT1:59 PM MT2:59 PM CT3:59 PM ET20:59 GMT4:59 1:59 PM MST3:59 PM EST0:59 UAE (+1)21:5915:59 ET2:59 PM CTNaN:� - A day after not playing on a coach's decision, Okafor got the start at center against the Kings on Monday with Joel Embiid (knee) out.
Analysis: Okafor had 15 points and four rebounds, and Embiid is expected to miss two more games.
Jan. 29 8:20 AM PT9:20 AM MT10:20 AM CT11:20 AM ET16:20 GMT0:20 9:20 AM MST11:20 AM EST20:20 UAE17:2011:20 ET10:20 AM CTNaN:� - Okafor (right knee soreness) did not play Sunday despite suiting up.
Analysis: It was his eighth DNP of the season due to a coaching decision. "There was some soreness,'' Sixers coach Brent Brown said. "By and large, he hasn't done much. We haven't had the opportunity to practice because of the dense schedule that we're on. ... We don't just want to force-feed something."
Jan. 23 9:07 AM PT10:07 AM MT11:07 AM CT12:07 PM ET17:07 GMT1:07 10:07 AM MST12:07 PM EST21:07 UAE18:0712:07 ET11:07 AM CTNaN:� - Okafor (sore right knee) is available to play Friday against Houston after missing the past two games.
Analysis: The center has played only eight of the 76ers' past 11 games, and it's possible he won't even play Friday because Joel Embiid (knee) could return and Nerlens Noel is healthy and playing well.
Jan. 18 9:15 AM PT10:15 AM MT11:15 AM CT12:15 PM ET17:15 GMT1:15 10:15 AM MST12:15 PM EST21:15 UAE18:1512:15 ET11:15 AM CTNaN:� - Okafor will play Wednesday against Toronto after previously being listed as probable with ankle soreness.
Analysis: He could see extended minutes with Joel Embiid's status in question due to illness.
Jan. 14 7:48 PM PT8:48 PM MT9:48 PM CT10:48 PM ET3:48 GMT11:48 8:48 PM MST10:48 PM EST7:48 UAE (+1)04:4822:48 ET9:48 PM CTNaN:� - Okafor, who hadn't played in the last three games, had a season-high 26 points for the 76ers in Saturday's 109-93 loss to the Wizards.
Analysis: Okafor started in place of Joel Embiid, and played a season-high 35 minutes. ''It felt good to get back on the court,'' Okafor said. ''I thought it was decent. I did feel myself starting to get winded but I was able to fight through it a little bit but I just worked as hard as I could.''
Jan. 13 6:08 PM PT7:08 PM MT8:08 PM CT9:08 PM ET2:08 GMT10:08 7:08 PM MST9:08 PM EST6:08 UAE (+1)03:0821:08 ET8:08 PM CTNaN:� - Okafor, Philadelphia's leading scorer last season, received yet another DNP-Coach's Decision on Friday against the Hornets.
Analysis: Okafor hasn't played in five of the last six games but is expected to see extensive action Saturday at Washington as the Sixers plan to rest Joel Embiid.
Dec. 29 8:49 PM PT9:49 PM MT10:49 PM CT11:49 PM ET4:49 GMT12:49 9:49 PM MST11:49 PM EST8:49 UAE05:4923:49 ET10:49 PM CTNaN:� - Okafor was rested Friday but will return to play Tuesday against Minnesota.
Analysis: Okafor briefly left Thursday's game at Utah with left hamstring tightness but returned to record 13 points in 24 minutes.
Dec. 19 9:39 PM PT10:39 PM MT11:39 PM CT12:39 AM ET5:39 GMT13:39 10:39 PM MST12:39 AM EST9:39 UAE06:390:39 ET11:39 PM CTNaN:� - Okafor grabbed 11 rebounds in Sunday's 108-107 win over Brooklyn but struggled badly with his shot. The second-year forward missed all 10 of his field goal attempts while recording three points.
Analysis: It's a performance few could have seen coming. Not only are the Nets among the league's worst defensive teams, but Okafor had been shooting an excellent 63.8 percent from the floor while averaging 15 points over his previous seven games.
Dec. 14 6:24 PM PT7:24 PM MT8:24 PM CT9:24 PM ET2:24 GMT10:24 7:24 PM MST9:24 PM EST6:24 UAE (+1)03:2421:24 ET8:24 PM CTNaN:� - Okafor had 17 points Wednesday.
Analysis: He's come on over his last six games, averaging 15.2 points and 7.3 rebounds.
Dec. 5 8:02 AM PT9:02 AM MT10:02 AM CT11:02 AM ET16:02 GMT0:02 9:02 AM MST11:02 AM EST20:02 UAE17:0211:02 ET10:02 AM CTNaN:� - Okafor returned Sunday at Dettoit after missing three games because of an illness.
Analysis: He fell one rebound shy of his second double-double of the season and second in three games. Okafor has averaged 15.0 points on 20 of 28 from the field with 8.7 rebounds during that span.
Dec. 3 7:26 PM PT8:26 PM MT9:26 PM CT10:26 PM ET3:26 GMT11:26 8:26 PM MST10:26 PM EST7:26 UAE (+1)04:2622:26 ET9:26 PM CTNaN:� - Okafor played a season-high 33 minutes Saturday, scoring 15 points on 6-of-9 shooting to go with a season-high three assists.
Analysis: With fellow young center Joel Embiid being rested, Okafor saw extended playing time and scored in double figures for a fifth straight game.
Dec. 2 5:49 PM PT6:49 PM MT7:49 PM CT8:49 PM ET1:49 GMT9:49 6:49 PM MST8:49 PM EST5:49 UAE (+1)02:4920:49 ET7:49 PM CTNaN:� - Okafor, who saw extended action with Joel Embiid for the first time this season, had 16 points and 13 rebounds in a season-high 28 minutes Friday.
Analysis: The Sixers continue to monitor Okafor's court time coming off last spring's knee surgery, which obviously limits the second-year center's fantasy appeal. He has managed a respectable 45 points and 27 rebounds over his last three games, though.
Nov. 28 8:46 PM PT9:46 PM MT10:46 PM CT11:46 PM ET4:46 GMT12:46 9:46 PM MST11:46 PM EST8:46 UAE05:4623:46 ET10:46 PM CTNaN:� - Okafor drew a start Monday at Toronto and recorded 15 points and five rebounds.
Analysis: The Sixers continue to keep Okafor's court time in the 25-minute range coming off last spring's knee surgery, which obviously limits the second-year center's fantasy appeal. He has managed a respectable 29 points and 14 rebounds over his last two games, though.
Nov. 16 8:10 PM PT9:10 PM MT10:10 PM CT11:10 PM ET4:10 GMT12:10 9:10 PM MST11:10 PM EST8:10 UAE05:1023:10 ET10:10 PM CTNaN:� - Okafor scored 19 points on 8-for-11 shooting before fouling out with 2:56 left to help the 76ers beat the injury-plagued Washington Wizards 109-102 Wednesday night.
Analysis: Okafor played in his ninth game and has been cleared to play in Thursday's game against the Timbervolves, although he is likely to have minutes restrictions.
Nov. 12 6:23 PM PT7:23 PM MT8:23 PM CT9:23 PM ET2:23 GMT10:23 7:23 PM MST9:23 PM EST6:23 UAE (+1)03:2321:23 ET8:23 PM CTNaN:� - Okafor finished with season highs of 18 points and six rebounds Saturday.
Analysis: Okafor, who had offseason knee surgery and played just three minutes Friday, was on a 24-minute limit.
Oct. 30 7:35 AM PT8:35 AM MT9:35 AM CT10:35 AM ET14:35 GMT22:35 7:35 AM MST9:35 AM EST18:35 UAE15:3510:35 ET8:35 AM CTNaN:� - The 76ers have picked up their third-year option on Okafor's rookie contract.
Analysis: Though whether he'll remain a part of the Sixers' rebuilding plans is still in question, the 2015 No. 3 overall pick earned the guaranteed year by averaging 17.5 points and 7.0 rebounds and shooting nearly 51 percent from the field during a strong rookie season. Okafor has played just 31 minutes in Philly's first two games after undergoing knee surgery in March.
