Joel Embiid is expected to return to the starting lineup Monday night versus the Sixers, according to Keith Pompey.
Embiid sat out the second half of Saturday’s back-to-back game versus the Raptors to rest after logging 28 minutes the night before. The Sixers continue to manage Embiid’s workload on back-to-backs, but look for him to see minutes in the upper 20’s tonight with the Sixers not scheduled to play again until Wednesday. Amir Johnson will return to the bench and Embiid is a must start in all formats when he plays.
