The Philadelphia 76ers will return home on Monday from a 3-game road trip to take on the Atlanta Hawks. This will be the third matchup with the Hawks this month alone and, with this matchup, it brings some new wrinkles to the injury report.
The Sixers have been so short-handed over the past few games as they have been playing without three starters, but there is a possibility that they get at least one of them back.
Joel Embiid, who has missed four games in a row due to a left mid-foot sprain, is listed as questionable for Monday’s matchup with the Hawks. Matisse Thybulle, who missed every game on the road trip due to an ankle issue, is also listed as questionable while PJ Tucker is listed as probable with his own left ankle issue.
James Harden, Tyrese Maxey, and Jaden Springer all remain out.
If Embiid can give it a go on Monday, it would provide a rather huge lift to the Sixers out on the floor and a Thybulle return would help Philadelphia on the defensive end and in their depth department.
