Joel Embiid is expected to play on Friday against the Magic with a 28-minute cap, but there is a chance that he does not play on Saturday against the Celtics.
He’s still not play in back-to-back sets, so the resting on Saturday should come as no surprise to Embiid owners. On the season the big man has been returning top-60 value and if you took a late-round flier on this guy you’re probably feeling pretty good about yourself right now.
•Embiid 28-minute limit vs. Magic; team anticipates to follow prior back-to-back protocol for Celtics on Saturday.
