Joel Embiid will get the start on Thursday against the Pelicans.
He was rested on Tuesday so he’s good to go on Thursday. Jahlil Okafor (illness) is out so Embiid will be called upon for a lot of offense. He could see the court more frequently heading up until the new year as the Sixers’ schedule is nicely spaced out.
