Joel Embiid Enters NBA Health and Safety Protocol

Fan Nation


Article Summary:

Sixers center Joel Embiid becomes the latest player to be entered into the NBA’s health and safety protocol, according to Keith Pompey of The Philadelphia Inquirer. As the star has been available for Philly’s last three games, which included a back-to-back against the Chicago Bulls and the Detroit Pistons on Wednesday and Thursday, the Sixers planned to issue Embiid a night of rest on Monday. Last Monday, as the Sixers were gearing up to face the Portland Trail Blazers, Sixers veteran forward Tobias Harris entered into the protocol as he was exposed and returned a positive COVID-19 test.

In addition to Harris and Embiid, Sixers’ second-year guard Isaiah Joe and third-year guard Matisse Thybulle are also in the health and safety protocol.
