Aldemir (Plantar fasciitis) will not play Sunday, Keith Pompey of the Philly Inquirer reports
After recently signing with Sixers, Aldemir has not been able to get on the practice court. Even if he does get healthy though, he does not figure to have much fantasy value this season.

Aldemir (foot) did not practice Thursday and is unlikely to play Friday, Tom Moore of Calkins Media reports.

Aldemir was limited in Wednesday's practice, Tom Moore of Calkins Media reports.
Aldemire participated in most the session but sat out near the end with soreness in his right heel. The team hasn't indicated if the issue will affect his status for Friday's matchup with Charlotte, but the recently signed forward isn't likely to be much of a fantasy contributor.

Aldemir will play Monday against the Celtics, Tom Moore of Calkins Media reports.
The recently signed Turkish big man's visa issues are behind him, as he joined the 76ers Sunday and will be available Monday. Coach Brett Brown's rotations have been difficult to predict this season, given the organization's state, so it's best to take a wait-and-see approach with Aldemir, as far as evaluating him from a fantasy perspective.

Aldemir will sign a four-year, $12 million deal with the Celtcs on Sunday, Marc Stein of ESPN reports.
The deal, which is guaranteed for the first two years, is expected to be finalized soon, and Aldemir should join the Sixers within the next week. It was reported three weeks ago that Aldemir would sign with Philadelphia, but the Turkey native had some visa issues, which are now in the rear view mirror. In order to make room for Aldemir on the roster, the Sixers waived Ronald Roberts on Sunday.
Furkan Aldemir F PHI 1 Month
Aldemir is expected to sign a four-year deal with the Sixers and join the team soon, the Intelligencer reports.
Aldemir's draft rights have been held by the Sixers since July of 2013. They obtained his draft rights as compensation for taking on the contract of Royce White. Through six games with Galatasaray in Europe this season, Aldemir averaged 7.8 points, 6.2 rebounds, and 1.3 blocks in 21 minutes per game. Given the fact that the Sixers have about half an inch worth of depth behind Nerlens Noel in their frontcourt, it's possible that Aldemir could carve out a role that is fantasy relevant shortly after joining the team. He could be on the active roster before next week.

The Sixers acquired the rights to Furkan Aldemir in a trade on Thursday.
He's going to stay overseas and the details on the reason for his inclusion on this deal are still sketchy. Aldemir was a second-round pick in 2012 and isn't expected to make an impact in the NBA in the near future.
Furkan Aldemir F PHI Feb 14 '79
There is reportedly a "good chance" that the Rockets will sign Turkish PF Furkan Aldemir next season.
Aldemir is an impressive rebounder and defender, but his offensive game remains very raw. He's just 21 years old and averaged a mere 17 minutes per game for his Turkish team in 2012-13, and fantasy owners can safely assume he won't help their teams as a rookie.
