Sixers center Jahlil Okafor will play in Sunday’s game against the Pistons.
He has missed the past three games with the illness but is now ready to go. He apparently will not have any minutes restrictions but will be monitored by the coaches and medical staff. With Joel Embiid out, Okafor figures to start at center with Nerlens Noel and Richaun Holmes splitting backup duties.
