76ers vs. Jazz: Bettors are backing Philly on Thursday
Our NBA Public Betting Information page shows that 52% of public bettors are currently backing the Knicks. However, this information may change throughout the day, so be sure to check the link for the most up-to-date public betting data.
Embiid is unavailable against the Jazz
According to ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski, Joel Embiid (left knee soreness) will not be available for Thursday's game against the Jazz.
Embiid, who was scheduled to undergo an MRI on Wednesday, aggravated his left knee injury during Tuesday's loss to the Warriors. Not only will he sit out Thursday's game, but he will return to Philadelphia and not remain with the team. According to Wynarowski, he will be further evaluated in the next 24 hours. Until Embiid is cleared to play, fantasy managers should list Paul Reed.
Jazz Markkanen scores 14 total points against the Knicks
Laurie Markkanen Had 14 points (5-of-14 FG, 2-of-2 FT), five rebounds, one assist, one steal and two 3-pointers in 34 minutes in Tuesday's 118-103 loss to the Knicks. Like his Jazz teammates, Markkanen will be excited to return home. In Utah's final two games on the road, blowout losses to the Nets and Knicks, he scored 27 points on 9-of-26 shooting from the field. Over the past two weeks, Markkanen has provided fifth-round value in 8- and 9-cat formats. Mini Slump was not damaged much. However, even if Utah ends Week 15 with two tough matchups (Philadelphia and Milwaukee), playing at home should be beneficial.
