Joel Embiid listed as questionable for Sixers vs. Wizards due to illness

The Philadelphia 76ers will be looking to finish up a 4-game road trip on Monday against the Washington Wizards and win a third consecutive game. They look like they have been getting back on track following the 1-4 start.

As they prepare for the Wizards and their matchup with Kristaps Porzingis and Bradley Beal, they might be without their superstar big fella.

Joel Embiid is listed as questionable on the injury report due to a non-COVID illness. This comes after he scored 25 points and had the go-ahead triple in Saturday’s win over the Chicago Bulls. He also missed a game on Friday due to right knee injury recovery.

It will be tough for the Sixers to get it done against the Wizards if Embiid can’t go. However, in the one game without the big man, Philadelphia was leaning on Tyrese Maxey to get the job done and delivered in a huge way so they can lean on that success.
