Article Summary:

After missing nearly three weeks due to COVID-19, Philadelphia 76ers superstar Joel Embiid will return to the lineup on Saturday along with Tobias Harris for the team’s game against the Minnesota Timberwolves. Tobias Harris, Matisse Thybulle and Isaiah Joe all missed time due to the virus, but Embiid’s absence has been felt the most as the team’s anchor on both ends of the floor. While Embiid’s been recovering from COVID-19, the Sixers have gone just 2-7 in his absence, and sit in ninth place in the Eastern Conference.

Getting Embiid back will be huge for a Sixers team that has been banged up over the past couple weeks.
