Joel Embiid, who was questionable with neck stiffness, will play tonight.— Derek Bodner (@DerekBodnerNBA) February 9, 2020
Embiid did not return to the floor in the second half of their 119-107 victory over Memphis. The Cameroonian star finished his night with 10 points and 10 rebounds in less than 16 minutes.
Embiid has struggled with some minor injuries throughout the 2019-20 season. The Cameroonian big man just returned to the floor a couple of weeks ago after missing nine games due to a torn finger ligament.
The Sixers have been a disappointing team during the 2019-20 season so far. They are currently no. 5 in the Eastern Conference with a 32-21 record.
