You know Embiid was going to miss time after his finger was snapped in a very awkward direction earlier this week. This will thrust Al Horford into a more pronounced role in the Sixers front court and very well means big outings for Ben Simmons are likely on the way as this is now his offense solely to run. Mike Scott and Kyle O’Quinn are interesting names to keep eyes on as they’ll also likely see more minutes with Embiid out.
