Joel Embiid (knee) and Jahlil Okafor (knee) are both listed as doubtful for Friday’s game against the Rockets.
Embiid’s injury looked like it deserved serious treatment from analysts and here we are with a doubtful tag for yet another potential missed game. Excitement over the player is understandable, but when there’s a hyperextension you might want to take it seriously no matter how big a fan you are of Embiid or Sam Hinkie’s process. Nerlens Noel, a must-own player throughout the year, saw very soft hold recommendations over the last week and hopefully you didn’t miss out. Embiid did work out on Thursday so hopefully for owners and the Sixers he can spin this doubtful tag into a surprise start.
Brett Brown tells WIP he worked Joel Embiid out for a bit today. Things moving in positive direction. No decision yet for tomorrow.
