The Philadelphia 76ers are continuing their 6-game road trip on Saturday at Staples Center as they take on the Los Angeles Clippers in the fourth game of the trip. They are still a shorthanded bunch with the team still missing Joel Embiid as well as new acquisition George Hill, but there are updates on both players.

Embiid has not played since suffered a bone bruise in his left knee back on March 12, but there does appear to be some good news on his end as he is progressing well through his rehab process. He has resumed on-court basketball activities while continuing to ramp up his conditioning which is a good sign for Philadelphia as they hope to get him back soon.

As for Hill, he has not played in a game since Jan. 24 after undergoing a procedure on his right thumb to correct an issue that was bothering him. He is expected to resume on-court basketball activities in the coming days and there will be another update on his status fairly soon.

Meanwhile, the Clippers are expected to have Kawhi Leonard and Marcus Morris Sr. return to their lineup in this one so this will be a tough matchup for the Sixers in order to get a victory.
