Boban Marjanovic made his first start of the season on Thursday vs. Philly, finishing with seven points (3-of-11 FGs), 12 rebounds and a block in 17 minutes.
The Joel Embiid effect on opposing centers is very real, even for Boban. Fantasy managers have learned to accept that Boban will never lock down a consistent role, but whenever he gets significant run he usually delivers as a streamer. In 22 previous starts throughout his career, Boban put up 11.2 points, 8.1 rebounds, 1.8 assists and 0.9 blocks in 20 minutes. If Kristaps Porzingis (lower back tightness) misses another game and Boban starts vs. the Nets on Saturday, we’d be comfortable tossing him into lineups, but coach Rick Carlisle may have other ideas after this blowout defeat.
