We should be lasered in on the Jahlil Okafor trade saga. Or the Sixers’ big win Saturday night over Miami to bring the Heat’s thoroughly unforeseen 13-game unbeaten run ?to a halt. But you know us. It’s always going to be tough for us to get through one of these comments without dissecting the Joel Embiid latest. And it comes from our pal Adam Reisinger, who reminds us that the fewest games total ever registered by a Rookie of the Year ?is Patrick Ewing’s 50 games in 1985-86. Embiid, who’s ailing anew, has played 31 games to date. The Sixers have 26 games left on their schedule after the All-Star break, but realistically only 21 of those will be available to Embiid when you factor in Philly’s five remaining back-to-backs. Gonna be close!

Memphis Grizzlies: Veteran power forward Brandan Wright has been a welcome addition to the Grizzlies’ rotation, providing scoring, rebounding and shot-blocking off the bench since returning from an ankle injury. Now 29, Wright never turned into the player that some hoped he’d be when the Warriors traded fan favorite Jason Richardson to acquire him on draft day in 2007, but if he gets close to 20 minutes a night he’s someone to consider streaming into your lineup if/when you’re looking for blocks.
Miami Heat: According to Stein, the Heat are one of a handful of teams to have shown interest in acquiring Serge Ibaka from Orlando. Miami has a -2.2 PER at power forward this season, per 82games.com, and Ibaka would provide a second frontcourt shot-blocker alongside Hassan Whiteside, which would certainly make for entertaining defense.
Knicks fans peppered the arena on Friday with chants of “We want Oakley” and “Free Charles Oakley.” Dolan said that the organization ejected Oakley because he was being verbally abusive to security. Oakley was charged with three misdemeanor counts of assault for striking Madison Square Garden security and one misdemeanor charge of trespassing.
