Im just gonna say it. We have lost every single game, this season that George Hill has played in, let that sink in every single one. So much for Daryl Morey being a mastermind.

You want it to be one way....but it's the other way.

Embiid said yesterday he shouldn't have play but he's doing so because the team is injured and he also plans on to play today even if he should rest.

At this rate i wonder if we should just throw one of the Buck games and put priority on just getting healthy.

If Simmons or Harris not playing. It’s pointless to play Embiid with bucks healthy and on back to back for sixers.

I agree

However, i think Embiid feels forced to play if Ben and Tobi don't. This is when you need Doc to be forceful and tried to talk with Jo about it.

Oh no, the bucks are closer to first than I thought. After these two they'll only be a game and a half back.

We have an easy schedule after this two games. Rest Embiid Simmons Harris Curry for this two and focus on the rest on the season.
We can finish the rest of the season like 11-1 or 10-2 easily.

If we drop these next 2 we most likely finish 3rd.

Naahh

The Nets are playing Boston tomorrow and the Suns after that still without Durant and Harden. They still have to play against the Mavs, the Spurs, the Bucks and the Nuggest too.

I don't see how they catch us, tbh

What is wrong with Simmons? Non Covid illness.

I don't want to speculate, but after I read that all but 3 of the players were recently vaccinated, I'd bet that a couple of the players felt some after effects. I got my 2nd shot on a Tuesday, and didn't feel ill until Thursday. But just the one day. Other people I know, felt sick for 3 days afterwards. I could envision that they would not announce this kind of thing in the current climate.

Has to be either vaccine side effects or a stomach flu. I'm sure he'll be fine, given that he was questionable coming into the game, and apparently he made the trip.

I don’t see us winning against the Bucks without Ben Simmons on the road in either match up.

So I would just rest Embiid as well.

We have a better chance of only Embiid playing on this team and winning, than only Ben. Obviously you want both to increase your odds. We are in a race for the 1 seed and Bucks are 1.5 games behind this. We have to split this to have a good shot of maintaining that lead. I'm guessing Ben returns next game, but at worst he'll be back against OKC.
