One way the minutes will be there for Okafor is if Embiid is unable to play, quite frankly I don't think any Sixers fans want to see that happen. Embiid has been describes as the center of the Sixers universe, so if he his hurt, that's not a good thing for the Sixers moving forward.
So Sixers fans do you like the pick?
