Joel Embiid suffers sprained shoulder, and it feels like this whole 76ers experiment is teetering on the edge

Article Summary:

The Sixers, now 9-21 on the road, would play the Heat in the first round, without home-court advantage, if the playoffs were to start today, and however the top four teams end up shaking out, a first-round exit for Philly is feeling increasingly possible. The Sixers, given their flawed roster and lack of flexibility, are running out of options and up against a state of desperation.

What do the Sixers’ prospects look like absent their two best players? Their three still-healthy expected starters – Tobias Harris, Josh Richardson and Al Horford – combined for 30 points on 12-of-35 shooting in Wednesday’s loss.

The Sixers signed Horford because they were a mess when Embiid was off the floor last year, particularly in the playoffs, but a backup center is hardly worth $109 million.
