Sixers vs. Nuggets Game Thread

Joel Embiid is not playing, but we’re still here. Come complain with us!

NBA: Philadelphia 76ers at Portland Trail Blazers Steve Dykes-USA TODAY Sports

Robert Covington was questionable due to a finger injury prior to tonight’s game, but based on pre-game warmups and a talking session held by Brett Brown he should be a go for tonight. That gives the Sixers a chance amid the usual non-Embiid chaos that we usually go through.

A big Ben Simmons game tonight would be nice.
