Injury Report

Sixers-Bucks by the Numbers

  • 23.5 - Joel Embiid’s PER this season, which ranks first among Eastern Conference centers who’ve played 650 or more minutes this season.
  • 63 - The amount of blocks Embiid has this season. In 784 fewer minutes than Karl-Anthony Towns, it’s two more than the reigning ROY has this season.
  • 5 - How many points the Sixers score per 100 possessions with Embiid on the court more than they do when he’s off.
  • 26 - Timothe Luwawu-Cabarrot’s minutes Saturday against Washington (a career-high). He could be relied on heavily again today.
