Beat Us In Fantasy Hoops, Win 250 on DraftStreet.com

Jodie Meeks went off on Tuesday night, leading the Sixers with 31 points in their easy win over the Cleveland Cavaliers at the Wells Fargo Center -- a nice little line for fantasy hoops -- but will he be able to duplicate those numbers Friday down in Washington against the Wizards? If he can it'll be a smart pick for our contest.

We're holding another exciting free roll with our fantasy sports partner, DraftStreet.com, the site bringing a new twist to how you can enjoy fantasy sports. As a refresher, many of their leagues run only for a single day, providing you with the instant gratification of knowing you put the right guys on the floor last night and have the winnings to show for it the following day.

Our next one-day contest will run Friday, March 30 on DraftStreet.com. You can create your own team of players from the slate of NBA games on Friday night and compete against The700Level's squad as well as fellow Level commenters. So check back on Friday to see which guys we drafted for our squad and also enjoy the reality of knowing you can beat us in fantasy sports. I finished juuuuust out of the money in our last go-around due to Jrue Holiday crapping the bed that night. Choose your players wisely.

The Details: the free contest will be salary-cap style drafting where everyone tries to assemble the best team out of the available players. You will have a $100,000 budget to build a team of 2 forwards, 2 guards, 2 centers, and 2 utility players. Each NBA player has been assigned a price based on their expected fantasy performance.

T.J. McConnell (wrist) in a splint, doubtful to play for Sixers Wednesday

T.J. McConnell (wrist) in a splint, doubtful to play for Sixers Wednesday

Sixers point guard T.J. McConnell is doubtful for Wednesday's home game against the Raptors with a right wrist sprain.

McConnell was in a splint at practice Tuesday and said he would try to play but would leave it up to the medical staff.

McConnell is averaging 4.8 points and 5.4 assists in 38 games. The Sixers went 5-2 in the last seven games he started before his injury, and won 113-104 in Milwaukee without him. Sergio Rodriguez started at PG in McConnell's place and had 10 points, 7 rebounds and 6 assists. Chasson Randle backed up the point and had 10 points and a pair of threes.

Joel Embiid did not practice Tuesday (rest) and is listed as probable for Wednesday night when the Sixers (13-26) host the Raptors (27-13).

“Joel Embiid ... was a little bit, had the flu,” Brett Brown said.

Jahlil Okafor (probable) did not participate in practice and received treatment. Brown said Okafor had soreness. Gerald Henderson is also probable and had an individualized workout Tuesday.

Wayne Simmonds gets engaged during Flyers' bye week

Wayne Simmonds gets engaged during Flyers' bye week

So far, 2017 has been a pretty big year for Wayne Simmonds.
 
In addition to being named to his first All-Star team this year, Simmonds clearly had big plans on how to spend his bye week away from hockey, before returning to play the New Jersey Devils on Saturday. He popped the question to his girlfriend, Crystal Corey, and she said yes.
 
Simmonds announced the engagement on his Instagram.

11,700 feet and she said YES! I Love you @cryscorey 💛#SimmondsandSimmonds

It could be good news for the Flyers, too. Simmonds is the second Flyer to get engaged this season after Claude Giroux popped the question in December after winning three in a row. The Flyers made the winning streak an even 10 after. Congratulations, Wayne!
