Sixers Injury Report
Joel Embiid will miss his second straight game with an illness, while Tyrese Maxey and Nicolas Batum were also late scratches.
Tyrese Maxey joins Joel Embiid as questionable ahead of the Sixers’ Friday game against the Celtics.
Embiid was a late scratch on Wednesday night in New Orleans with an illness.
Welcome back, Tsunami Papi.
Joel Embiid was scratched with an illness just a half hour before the Sixers tipped off against the Pelicans.
Kelly Oubre, Jr. could be available Friday night vs. the Celtics. He’s been out since Nov. 11 with a fractured rib.
Might the 76ers be returning one Nico Batum? Nick Nurse’s team has yet to lose a game when the Lisieux native suits up. Embiid’s hip may have improved to the point he’s no longer on the injury report too.
The Sixers could continue to be shorthanded for their next In-Season Tournament game on Friday against the Hawks.
The Sixers will not be at full strength against the Celtics, but by how much remains to be seen.
The Philadelphia 76ers will be without Nicolas Batum and possibly Joel Embiid as they host the Indiana Pacers on Tuesday night in the NBA In-Season Tournament.
