While the Sixers have been slowly getting healthier and will have Thybulle in the mix, they’ll still be shorthanded on Saturday night against the Portland Trail Blazers
As the Sixers have had a difficult time coming out on top with wins lately, they’ll look to keep some of their recent momentum going on Saturday as they are coming off of an impressive win against the Denver Nuggets. Ever since their star center Embiid entered the NBA’s health and safety protocol, the Sixers have struggled to close out games. Although the Sixers already have a victory over the Blazers this season even without having Embiid in the lineup, the Sixers had a home-court advantage. Plus, Portland is expected to be at full strength, giving them another advantage over the struggling Sixers.
