F the MVP at this point and lets rest him more and prep for the playoffs. Give it to Jokic and let that fuel Jo.

Again, thanks Jurassic! 2-3 weeks is again best case... I thin the MVP might be out of reach, but **** it... We should still be able to hold on to the 3 seed hopefully.


MVP is still within reach and I doubt we'll drop that much. The only tough games in the next 3 weeks include the West coast trip (@ GSW, @ LAL, @ LAC, @ DEN). Simmons has shown in the past that he can lead this team to big victories by himself.

I imagine he'll be back on the court 4/3 vs. Minny.

I doubt it. I suspect Denver or LA will start winning and LeBron and Jokic will run away with it.

I think if we finish the season as the #1 seed, Embiid will still get it. I can't see Joker winning it without his team having HCA. LeBron is still the biggest threat IMO.

Hate to plays devil’s advocate as I always will love the big fella same with Simmons. We actually might only have three legitimate runs at a title if that. It isn’t a lot of time. This year may will be a wash too

I’m content with throwing the kitchen sink at it and go out wondering with a conservative route. Always been all or nothing anyway in my eyes.

Rest up well soon you savant.

If I know my Sixers medical history: bone bruise —> precautionary measures -> knee soreness —> conditioning -> precautionary measures -> ligament tear -> amputation.

Feel bad for Joel man. Hopefully Morey makes a few moves and Joel can come back and win the Finals MVP since it looks like MVP will most likely be out.

Phew Sixers confirm it's a 2 week injury best case...

Still a very slim chance for MVP, but I'm not getting my hopes up.

Thank God Jo is okay. Now they all have to save him from himself and talk him out of coming back early to save his MVP candidacy :lol:

The only goal now should be to finish with a top 2 seed.

LeBron will win MVP unless DEN goes on a tear and gets a top 3 seed.

I really hope Embiid isn't terribly out of shape when he gets back. Conditioning is always an issue for him.

A swimming pool should be his regular hangout the next couple of weeks or so.

Alright guys, we're going to be okay. Time for Simmons to turn up like he did last time and for Harris to prove why he was the biggest allstar snub.

Such great news! So happy it wasn't serious. F the MVP at this point. We need Embiid more than a meaningless regular season trophy.

Good thing we have Tony “Small Fundamental” Bradley.

Major win. The entire team has been mega synergized lately, Tony Bradley won't let us fall too far in our savior's absence.

Bradley really has looked solid lately and definitely a little quicker, smoother and more athletic than earlier this year. Maybe even see some Paul Reed moments squeezed in here or there too.

A good time to learn to swim haha, because he can't. I swear this guy is like a **** mythical unicorn. Pretty much superhuman on court, but water and shirley temples are his kryptonite.
