Injury Reports 76ers - Knicks

The 76ers have won seven of their last eight games. On Thursday, they defeated the Clippers 119-114. With 44 points, Joel Embiid led the way for the 11th straight game. James Harden also had a big game, scoring 20 points and grabbing 11 rebounds.

Embiid had 44 points (18-30 FG, 1-4 3Pt, 7-7 FT), seven rebounds, three assists, two blocks, and one steal in 38 minutes against the Clippers on Friday.

Another game, another dominant performance from the star big man, who has stepped up his game dramatically in December. He’s played in every game this month, which is impressive given his injury history, and he’s scored at least 22 points in every one of them, with 30 or more in all but two.

Embiid could be a contender for Player of the Month after averaging 36.0 points, 10.0 rebounds, 4.2 assists, 1.7 blocks, and 1.3 steals per game in nine December games.

Tyrese Maxey (foot) will miss Sunday’s game against the Knicks.

Maxey will miss his 16th consecutive game on Sunday due to a fracture in his left foot. 76ers coach Doc Rivers, on the other hand, has stated that he is on the verge of returning. Maxey’s next appearance will be against the Wizards on Tuesday.

After winning their previous eight games in a row, the Knicks have now lost their last two, falling to the Raptors and the Bulls. The Knicks are sixth in the Eastern Conference, two games behind the sixth-place Philadelphia 76ers.

Obi Toppin and Trevor Keels have been reported injured by the Knicks for this game.
