Sacramento Kings daily fantasy rotation

Kings shooting guard Kevin Huerter left the team's last game with an ankle injury, and he is officially listed as questionable for Friday night's game against the 76ers. Huerter is averaging 9.5 points and 3.6 rebounds in 31 starts for Sacramento this season.

If Huerter isn't available, Sacramento could turn to a combination of those monk property, Chris Duarte and Kevin Ellis to get his minutes. Of the three, Monk is the most interesting as he is averaging 15.0 points and 5.4 assists per game in 25.6 minutes per contest off the bench this year.

Philadelphia 76ers daily fantasy rotation

Sixers center Joel Embiid He has missed the last two club matches due to swelling in his left knee. He will be out with the Kings on Friday. Embiid is having a monster season as he averages 34.6 points and 11.8 rebounds per game in 27 starts in 2023.

Philadelphia power forward Robert Covington will also be unavailable on Friday as he deals with a right knee effusion. Covington is averaging 4.5 points and 3.4 rebounds per contest in 16.1 minutes per game this season.

Kings vs. 76ers NBA prediction:

Sacramento is currently in the middle of an East Coast road trip. The Kings knocked off the Pistons 110-131 on Tuesday night, then easily dispatched the Hornets 123-98 on Wednesday night. It's fair to say this game won't be nearly as easy as those two. Sacramento is 21st in points scored and 18th in defensive efficiency this season. Even against a Sixers team without Joel Embiid, that should matter.

Philadelphia will play its third straight game without Joel Embiid on Friday night. They are 0-2 straight up and 0-2 ATS in those games. But this game is different. Philadelphia played better in their second game without Embiid than they did in the first, and they may be getting used to playing without him. The Sixers still have leading scorers Tyrese Maxey and Tobias Harris, and DeAnthony Melton and Clay Ober Jr. are both averaging 12+ points per game. On a contrary display, I like the Sixers to win this game at home without Joel Embiid on Friday night.

Kings vs. 76ers PREDICTION: PHILADELPHIA 76ERS -1
