The NBA All-Star game is happening on Sunday night at Stage Farm Arena in Atlanta as the league looks to have a successful midseason event amid the global pandemic. They are packing every event into a one-night thing as they look to have everything go safely.

Philadelphia 76ers big man Joel Embiid, as well as Ben Simmons, were slated to play in the game. Embiid was set to be a starter for Team Durant and Simmons was set to be a reserve for Team LeBron, but both of them were ruled out for the game after a barber they got a haircut from tested positive for COVID.

Embiid took to Twitter to react to all of the fresh haircuts that the players in the game all have and how disappointing it is that he is the one who has been ruled out.

Embiid and Simmons will now most likely have to enter a 7-day quarantine due to the contact tracing protocols that the NBA has in place. That means the two of them would miss Philadelphia’s first three games of the second half of the season starting on Thursday against the Chicago Bulls.
