Tobias Harris Out, Joel Embiid ‘Very Questionable’ Tonight vs Pacers
The Sixers will be shorthanded tonight when they face the Pacers, as head coach Doc Rivers announced that Tobias Harris will miss his second straight game with a knee contusion.
That's not all, there is a good chance they could be without center Joel Embiid, who tweaked his ankle during Saturday's game. Rivers called Embiid "very questionable" for the game tonight.
Without Harris, the Sixers will likely turn to either Furkan Korkmaz or Mike Scott, who said he no longer has a minutes restriction, in the starting lineup. Korkmaz got the start on Saturday night, with Scott coming off the bench.
If Embiid can't play. you could see Scott get some center minutes, along ith Tony Bradley and Dwight Howard. If both players can't play, we could see an aggressive version of Ben Simmons, who would be leaned on more for scoring without Harris and Embiid in the lineup.
Listen to the Sixers and Pacers at 7pm on 97.3 ESPN South Jersey's home for Sixers basketball.
