Three ways the 76ers can survive without Joel Embiid


Article Summary:

While some of Embiid’s numbers are down from last season, he is still playing like an All-Star, and Philadelphia’s net rating drops from plus-6.7 with Embiid on the floor to plus-1.2 with him on the bench.

With Embiid out, the Sixers should use Horford more often in their actions. The Sixers may push Horford to be more aggressive on switches moving forward knowing he isn’t an Embiid-level deterrent in the paint. The Sixers can mitigate the damage by using their speed and length and not asking Horford to be a perfect Embiid replacement.
