Embiid has sat out two in a row after playing a boatload in that triple-OT game against the Thunder, and there was some thought that he’d just get the entire week off. He made an appearance at shootaround and is definitely trending in the right direction for tonight. For what it’s worth, multiple teammates said he looked good at the morning session. He’s shaping up as a game-time decision so check back throughout the day for updates. Embiid’s return would push Amir Johnson to the bench and take some wind from the sails of Richaun Holmes, though we’d at least get to see how Philly’s rotation would look after Holmes has impressed of late.
