Jimmy Butler (strained groin) did not participate in practice on Tuesday and is doubtful for Wednesday's game vs. Brooklyn. Advice: Butler injured his groin in the first quarter of Monday's game

Remember when everybody thought he was done in Minny last year when he got off to that slow start? Yeah, Jimmy Buckets is an alpha dog and too talented to be quiet like this for too long. Just wait, once he gets fully acclimated to this team, he'll get it rolling again.

Lol. Relax o ye of little faith. These people who easily jump to conclusions make me smh. When Simmons was playing passive early on when Jimmy came in, people immediately concluded Simmons’ value will take a massive hit ros. Look at him now with consecutive beastly games. These guys are trying to adjust to each other. Like Simmons, Jimmy will be fine.

Welcome to 4th round production ROS. Scrub.

 

His average in 4 games is 18.3 points on 55% shooting with 3.3 rebounds, 3.5 assists and 2.0 stocks all while still acclimating to the offense. He will be fine. I comfortably project him in the top-25 ROS.

Those are 3rd-4th round numbers. 25 ROS is optimistic, and considerably lower than his ADP. Don't think the trade is going to work out spectacularly for his owners, who were picking him mid-2nd with hope of 1st round upside after trade.

Exactly I agree those are 3rd or 4th round numbers but I believe that will only rise to his norms with as the season goes along. But obviously you have every reason to stand by your opinion that's what these discussions are for :D

The situation has been worrying. Stocks are fine. Scoring is an issue here.

I feel like there are not as many open 3 opportunities with Embiid and Simmons as sidekick. 

He has only made 3 3pts in last 6 appearances as Sixers.
