Top 76ers News

  • 76ers' Joel Embiid: Will play Thursday

    Embiid (back) will play Thursday against the Pacers, Serena Winters of NBC Sports Philly reports.

    Embiid is dealing with a sore back and was seen getting stretched out by team trainers during pregame, but he's been cleared to play and is not expected to be limited. Embiid is coming off of a 31-point, 13-rebound outing in just 27 minutes Tuesday against Minnesota.

  • 76ers' Wilson Chandler: Cleared to play

    Chandler (illness) is available for Thursday's game against the Pacers, Tim Bontemps of ESPN.com reports.

    Chandler is dealing with an upper respiratory infection but is feeling well enough to play Thursday. Since the beginning of January, Chandler is averaging 6.7 points, 3.3 rebounds and 2.3 assists across 26.3 minutes.

  • 76ers' Wilson Chandler: Game-time call Thursday

    Chandler (illness) will be a game-time decision Thursday against the Pacers, Tim Bontemps of ESPN.com reports.

    Chandler might not be able to go Thursday, and Joel Embiid (back) is questionable as well, which could leave the 76ers thin in the frontcourt. If Chandler sits out, Jonah Bolden, Mike Muscala and Furkan Korkmaz could see extra run.

  • 76ers' Joel Embiid: To be game-time call

    Embiid (back) will be a game-time decision Thursday against the Pacers, Tim Bontemps of ESPN.com reports.

    Embiid is dealing with back soreness following a 31-points, 13-rebound effort Tuesday against the Timberwolves in just 27 minutes. If he's unable to go, look for Mike Muscala, Amir Johnson and Jonah Bolden to see extra run, while Jimmy Butler and Ben Simmons would presumably handle more offensive responsibilities.

  • 76ers' Wilson Chandler: Dealing with illness

    Chandler is questionable for Thursday's game against the Pacers due to an illness, Serena Winters of NBC Sports Philadelphia reports.

    Chandler is dealing with an upper respiratory infection for the second time since the start of January, so it looks like the veteran forward isn't completely over it. The illness forced Chandler to miss two games earlier this month, so his status for Thursday could be in serious doubt. Look for Chandler to be a game-time call in Indianapolis.

  • 76ers' Joel Embiid: Questionable with back tightness

    Embiid is questionable for Thursday's game against the Pacers due to back tightness, Keith Pompey of The Philadelphia Inquirer reports. '

    Embiid is coming off a monster performance in Tuesday's win over Minnesota with 31 points and 13 rebounds in just 27 minutes, but the big man appears to be dealing with some lingering back problems. Expect Embiid to be a game-time decision Thursday night.

  • 76ers' Amir Johnson: Plays 10 minutes in return

    Johnson (head) collected eight points (3-3 FG, 2-2 FT) and three rebounds across 10 minutes in Tuesday's win over the Timberwolves.

    Johnson was sharp in his return to action Tuesday after missing the previous three games due to migraines. When healthy, the big man doesn't play much of a factor for the 76ers, as evidenced by his season averages of 3.7 points and 2.5 rebounds across 9.3 minutes.

  • 76ers' Jonah Bolden: Turns in unexpected final line

    Bolden scored 14 points (5-6 FG, 4-5 3Pt) and collected four rebounds along with an assist and two blocks across 16 minutes Tuesday against Minnesota.

    Bolden took advantage of his opportunities off the bench, knocking down 80.0 percent of his threes in a 149-107 drubbing. The 23-year-old forward hasn't warranted much fantasy appeal so far this season, averaging just 3.2 points and 3.5 rebounds in 19 matchups. Don't expect this type of production from Bolden on a nightly basis.

  • 76ers' Jimmy Butler: Gets sweet revenge

    Butler had 19 points (8-10 FG, 3-4 3Pt) along with three rebounds, four assists, two steals and a block over 28 minutes Tuesday against the Timberwolves.

    The 76ers didn't need to play any of their starts more than 28 minutes in a 149-107 route of Minnesota, but Butler was efficient with his opportunities. He shot 80.0 percent from the field and 75.0 percent from beyond the arc while posting an impressive final line. Butler will head into Thursday's matchup against Indiana averaging 21.6 points over his previous five games.

  • 76ers' Ben Simmons: Registers another double-double

    Simmons racked up 20 points (7-10 FG, 6-7 FT) and recorded 11 rebounds along with nine assists, three blocks and a steal across 26 minutes Tuesday against Minnesota.

    Simmons came within just one assist of a triple-double for the second straight game, turning in a dominant performance in a massive victory at home. The 22-year-old guard is nearly averaging a triple-double so far this month, averaging 19.7 points, 10.3 rebounds, 9.4 assists and 1.1 steals through eight games. Simmons is a must-start in nearly all league formats heading into Thursday's tilt with Indiana.

  • 76ers' Joel Embiid: Another huge night

    Embiid accumulated 31 points (10-17 FG, 4-6 3Pt, 7-8 FT), 13 rebounds, three assists and a block across 27 minutes Tuesday against Minnesota.

    Embiid continues to inflict damage on anyone that stands in his way, putting up 20 or more points and averaging 13.5 rebounds through seven contests in January. The 7-0 center is having one of the best seasons of his young career, posting 26.9 points, 13.3 rebounds, 3.4 assists and 2.0 blocks in 41 contests.

  • 76ers' Corey Brewer: Inks 10-day contract

    Brewer signed a 10-day contract with the 76ers on Tuesday, Shams Charania of The Athletic reports.

    Brewer was brought on board to provide additional wing depth for the 76ers while offering a veteran presence in the locker room. Should the 32-year-old prove his fitness, he could stick with the team beyond his 10-day deal. Brewer posted averages of 5.3 points and 2.1 rebounds across 16.8 minutes per game with the Lakers and Thunder in 2018.
