Joel Embiid set to return for Sixers vs. Pistons from foot soreness

The Philadelphia 76ers will welcome their star big man back to the lineup as they get set to take on the Detroit Pistons at home on Tuesday to complete a home-and-home series. The Sixers were able to easily knock off the Pistons on the road on Sunday without the big fella, but now, they will be looking to get another win with him on the floor.

After missing three games due to left foot soreness, Joel Embiid will return to the lineup on Sunday after missing three games. This is a game where Philadelphia could have probably afforded him some more rest, but the Sixers also need to continue to grow their team so having him back on the floor is a big help.

This will also be the final matchup with the Pistons on the season so they will also be looking to sweep the season series with Detroit with Embiid returning to the floor.

Tipoff from the Wells Fargo Center is set for 7 p.m. EST.
