They found out earlier in the day that Joel Embiid is out due to a planned rest day and the Sixers will be turning to Andre Drummond to start.
On top of not having Embiid, the Sixers will not have Furkan Korkmaz on Monday either due to left knee soreness. Korkmaz had his knee buckle on a drive on Saturday in the win over the Sacramento Kings so it is not too surprising to see him being held out for this one.
Furkan Korkmaz is out tonight #Sixers

With Korkmaz out, this could give a guy like Isaiah Joe an opportunity to make a dent in the rotation a bit.
