Per the Sixers, Joel Embiid will not play tonight vs. Portland (rest). The Sixers are about to play six games in nine nights with two back-to-backs. Being listed as rest and not knee soreness. – 12:33 PM

Joel Embiid will not play tonight against the Blazers. The Sixers play 6 games in the next 9 days and Embiid will have the night off for rest. – 12:31 PM

Joel Embiid (rest) is out tonight, so obviously a much tougher game to win for Sixers. Sounds like it was planned with a lot of games over the next week-plus.
This also means Rip City is likely gonna get introduced to a man whose first name is BBall, last name Paul. – 12:30 PM
