• Joel Embiid
    F/C, Philadelphia Sixers

    Joel Embiid returned to action in Thursday's 122-128 loss to the Bucks with 34 points on 12-of-31 shooting while adding 13 rebounds, 13 assists, two steals, three blocks and three 3-pointers.

    After missing the previous three games with left knee soreness, Embiid picked up right where he left off. He tried his best to carry the Sixers past the No. 1 team in the league, but fell short as the Bucks triple-teamed him in the closing possessions. The shooting line isn't optimal, but JoJo remains a nightly threat for monstrous lines as long as he's on the floor.
