Article Summary:

Philadelphia is likely to be without Joel Embiid, Matisse Thybulle, Danny Green and Ben Simmons again when they play the fourth of six straight road games.

With so many starters out of the lineup, Sixers coach Doc Rivers has asked for more production from players such as guard Tyrese Maxey and center Charles Bassey.

Portland forward Larry Nance Jr. has moved into the rotation over the past week after struggling to find playing time early in the season.

Nance, who played fewer than 20 minutes in nine of his first 11 games, is slowly settling in after being acquired from Cleveland during the offseason.
