Article Summary:

Embiid has been sidelined for the past nine games after reportedly testing positive for COVID-19.

While Embiid was out, key players such as Tobias Harris, Matisse Thybulle, Isaiah Joe, Danny Green and Seth Curry all missed games for various reasons. “It’s not a fun trip because you don’t want to drop games and games you think you would win if you were at full strength. But it’s been a good trip in a lot of ways. Spiritually, for our team, I think this has been a phenomenal trip. We just keep getting closer.”

Despite the absences, 21-year-old Tyrese Maxey has continued to emerge as a budding star. Maxey is averaging 18.7 points, 4.6 assists and 3.5 rebounds per game. Even if Embiid remains out, winning on the road against the Sixers will be a daunting challenge.
