Article Summary:

As the Philadelphia 76ers get set to take on the Memphis Grizzlies, they will be without their star big man, Joel Embiid. The big fella will miss the game due to a planned rest, but the timing of that rest caused some confusion.

Embiid has played in 21 straight games so it makes some sense to rest him, but choosing to rest him against a very good Grizzlies team is confusing considering the quality of the opponent. It would have made more sense to have him rest against a weaker team like the Sacramento Kings on Saturday.
