About The 76ers

The Philadelphia 76ers possess the 1st seed in the East by just a hair with a 39-19 record. They are trying to bounce back from last night’s loss against the Phoenix Suns 116-113. Joel Embiid contributed 38 points and 17 rebounds, as well as almost hitting a half-court shot that could have sent the game to overtime. Philadelphia is yet to submit their 1:30 pm EST injury report, but Ben Simmons (illness) and Tobias Harris (right knee) are yet to suit up this week. Sharpshooter Seth Curry also missed last night’s game due to left hip flexor recovery. 

Projected starters: TBD
