Sixers C Joel Embiid to Rest Saturday Against the Atlanta Hawks

November 12th, 2016

No real reason to worry about Joel Embiid. While he wil not suit up against the Atlanta Hawks on Saturday, the Philadelphia 76ers' big man is simply just taking a rest after putting up nearly 26 minutes Friday night. Embiid is averaging 18.8 points and 6.8 rebounds this season. With him out of the lineup, expect Jahlil Okafor to see an uptick in minutes.
