Full injury report for Joel Embiid, Sixers vs. Thunder in return home

The Philadelphia 76ers will return home on Tuesday from a 2-game road trip to play host to the Oklahoma City Thunder as they look to continue to pick off some wins before the regular season ends on April 14. The Sixers are sitting as the No. 8 seed in the East with seven games left to play.

Joel Embiid, who hasn’t played since Jan. 30 due to a left knee meniscus injury, is currently listed as out against the Thunder. However, that status can change before Philadelphia’s matchup with OKC on Tuesday. The big fella’s return is imminent and there is a possibility that Embiid could return if he continues to progress in a positive direction between now and tip off.

De’Anthony Melton (lumbar spine bone stress) and Robert Covington (left knee bone bruise) also remain out. Melton hasn’t played since Feb. 27 and Covington hasn’t played since Dec. 30.

Tyrese Maxey is listed as questionable with left hip tightness. The All-Star guard missed Sunday’s win over the Toronto Raptors on the road.

Tip off with the Thunder is set for 7:30 p.m. EDT on Tuesday from the Wells Fargo Center.
