Mike Scott drawing start Tuesday for 76ers in absence of Joel Embiid (illness)

Philadelphia 76ers big man Mike Scott will start on Tuesday against the Indiana Pacers.

What It Means:

Joel Embiid (illness) is out and Scott will make his 11th start of the season. He is averaging 5.8 points, 2.7 rebounds, and 1.6 3-pointers with the first unit. Dwight Howard should see expanded minutes off the bench.

numberFire’s models project Scott for 13.7 FanDuel points versus the Pacers and he has a $3,500 salary on Tuesday.
