Sixers head coach Doc Rivers revealed that Embiid was symptomatic as well. “He’s struggling with it, very similar to Tobias. So, you know, it’s all I can tell you.”
The last time Embiid saw the court was on November 6, when the Sixers faced the Chicago Bulls on the road. Prior to testing positive for the virus, Embiid helped the Sixers achieve an impressive 8-2 record.
In the six games Embiid missed, the Sixers achieved a record of 1-5, with their first win in his absence coming on Thursday when they faced the Denver Nuggets. It’s unclear if the Sixers have a timeline for his return or not, but with Embiid out once again on Saturday, the Sixers will likely lean on Andre Drummond and the rookie Charles Bassey to fill the void.
