Philadelphia 76ers - PlayerWatch

C Joel Embiid did not play Saturday night. Embiid flew straight from Portland to Phoenix, where Philadelphia plays on Sunday night. He went through a workout Saturday and will be ready to go against the Suns. Coach Brett Brown said the decision to sit Embiid on one end of back-to-back games is medical. “It’s all pointed toward health,” Brown said. “When you play a game and you have a chance to have a day or multiple days in between that can better allow him to play whatever game it’ll play out to be, then that’s the answer. It’s really as simple as that.”
