Joel Embiid tests positive for COVID-19, likely to miss several games for depleted 76ers, per report

CBS Sports


Article Summary:

Joel Embiid has tested positive for COVID-19 and is expected to miss several games, according to ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski. The star big man was already slated to miss Monday’s game against the New York Knicks as a planned rest day with the Philadelphia 76ers on the first half of a back-to-back, but now, he could be out a fair bit longer. Danny Green is questionable for Monday’s game against the Knicks due to a hamstring injury, and Ben Simmons remains out as he is not mentally ready to resume playing for the 76ers following a tumultuous offseason.

Still, no matter how well their role players have performed, the 76ers are likely to struggle over the next several games due to sheer numbers.
