Multiple Sixers expected to miss some time due to contact tracing

The Philadelphia 76ers are currently in a tough situation as they are still in New York following their loss to the Brooklyn Nets on Thursday. That is due to the fact that Seth Curry tested positive for the novel coronavirus and the team is undergoing health and safety protocols.

Of course, this means that there will be some contact tracing being done along with tests for the entire team. The Sixers do have a game coming up against the Denver Nuggets back in Philadelphia Saturday afternoon and the expectation is that multiple players will miss time due to the tracing.

One of those players will most likely be Joel Embiid who sat down next to Curry on the bench during the game before he left the arena and anybody knew he tested positive. Embiid has a three-month-old son that he would like to keep safe during this time, so he will isolate himself from his family until he knows he is OK.

This story will continue to be updated as more details emerge.
