12. Jonathon Simmons

March Stats: GP 6| MINS 13.2| FG% 41.2| 3P% 25.0| FT% 60.0| TRB 1.5| AST 1.5| STL 0.5| PF 1.3| TOV 0.5| PTS 3.5

Previous ranking: 10th

The biggest drop off for Jonathon Simmons from this past player rankings to this current one is his lower 3-point percentage. The Sixers need floor spacers coming off of the bench and if Simmons can’t do that, he will continue to see inconsistent game action as he did in March. The Sixers need more from Simmons for a deep playoff run.

11. Amir Johnson

March Stats: GP 8| MINS 13.0| FG% 40.0| 3P% 18.2| FT% 66.7| TRB 3.6| AST 1.4| BLK 0.4| STL 0.4| PF 1.6| TOV 1.3| PTS 3.8

Previous ranking: 13th

After struggling for most of the season, Amir Johnson had a couple of good games in March. His best game came when he started against Orlando. He finished with 13 points, five rounds, two assists, two blocks and one steal. He was also able to hold All-Star center Nikola Vucevic to 12 points on 5-15 shooting from the field. It seems like Johnson still has the ability to turn back the clock when the Sixers need him to.

10. Jonah Bolden

March Stats: GP 7| MINS 16.1| FG% 51.9| 3P% 50.0| FT% 66.7| TRB 3.4| AST 1.7| BKL 1.1| STL 0.7| PF 2.9| TOV 0.7| PTS 5.7

Previous ranking: 9th

If it wasn’t for the last game of the month that Jonah Bolden started in, he would have been lower in these rankings. However, he had arguably the best game of his season thus far against the Minnesota Timberwolves. He had a career high 19 points, along with eight rebounds, three assists, three blocks, one steal and five fouls.

Despite having that great game against the Timberwovles, there has been one problem that has been haunting Bolden during March. Bolden had at least four fouls in four out of the seven games he played in. If he could get that under control, there’s a good chance that he could become part of the regular rotation again.
