Joel Embiid News

Sixers legend Allen Iverson talked about why he's such a big fan of Ben Simmons and what advice he has for Joel Embiid playing in the NBA's "bubble" with no fans. By Paul Hudrick

Brett Brown had positive news on the health of Ben Simmons and Joel Embiid, and offered an interesting take on how he plans to use the All-Star duo together. By Paul Hudrick

Philadelphia 76ers coach Brett Brown says All-Star guard Ben Simmons is “good to go” for the NBA restart after sitting out the final games before the shutdown with a back injury. Brown, whose contract runs through 2021-22, also expected fellow All-Star Joel Embiid to start the season in the best shape of his professional career. The Sixers need their franchise stars at full strength if one of the early favorites to win the East Conference can shake off both an ordinary regular season (39-26; 6th in the East) and a nearly five-month layoff to return contenders for their first NBA championship since 1983.

Could Philadelphia's process be nearing its end with an early exit from this year's playoffs?

Also, what will Philadelphia's starting lineup look like? What kind of shape will Joel Embiid be in?
