The Philadelphia 76ers are still working out the kinks as they continue with the season, but they will be without one of their stars again on Saturday. The team will take on the Milwaukee Bucks again to finish up a 2-game mini-series and they will be missing a half of their All-Star duo.

Ben Simmons is officially out for Saturday due to an illness that is not related to COVID and the Sixers will have to dig deep to end a 3-game skid without him. Philadelphia misses Simmons’ playmaking and they’re missing his elite defense and versatility against a team like the Bucks.

On top of that, Joel Embiid is questionable for the matchup with right shoulder soreness and Furkan Korkmaz is questionable with a right ankle sprain.

The Sixers are banged up at the worst time right now and they will need to be able to band together and get a win. They don’t want to get swept by the Bucks for the season series.

Tip-off from Milwaukee is set for 3:30 p.m. EDT.
