Full injury report for Joel Embiid, Sixers vs. Raptors to end road trip

The Philadelphia 76ers will finish this quick 2-game road trip on Easter Sunday with a visit to the Toronto Raptors. The Sixers need a win in the worst way and the Raptors offer up a great chance as they have lost 12 games in a row.

Once again, the Sixers will be short-handed. Joel Embiid, who made the trip with the team, is ruled out for this one due to the left knee meniscus procedure. The big fella is not quite ready to return, but the fact that he traveled on this trip is a good sign for them.

Along with Embiid, the Sixers will also be missing De’Anthony Melton (lumbar spine bone stress) and Robert Covington (left knee bone bruise). Melton hasn’t played since Feb. 27 and Covington hasn’t played since Dec. 30.

The Sixers will look to sweep the 4-game season series from the Raptors when they tip off at 6 p.m. EDT from Scotiabank Arena in Toronto.
