Al Horford’s role up in the air, has not been paired with Joel Embiid

USA Today


Article Summary:

Where the big change comes in is how many minutes do Horford and Joel Embiid play together? The pairing was not good offensively as it was clunky and the team has had a lot of other issues to sort out. “One of the groups that we haven’t done since we’ve been down here is pair Al and Joel up together. I’ve sort of segmented how I want this to unfold here in Orlando, we go for four days, we’ve got a day off, we go for three days, we’ve got a day off, in that chunked up world that I think like I’m going through ‘what are the rotations?’ The Clipper game is a very good reference point to what I’m trying to explain.”

In that February 11 matchup with Los Angeles, Brown moved Horford to the bench and started Furkan Korkmaz.

The main point is, Philadelphia did not pay Horford $109 million just for him to come off the bench and have a minor role on the team. “As far as what that ultimately means like ‘OK, how many minutes is he going to play? Is he going to end the game? Is he going to start the game?’ that, for sure, is fluid and I’ll be happy to share when it happens when we start looking closely at Al and Joel again.”

Horford is still going to be a valuable player to this team when the playoffs roll around.
