Joel Embiid injury Bucks-76ers

The Sixers will be without all-star James Harden for at least another month, but they will be able to rely on their superstar big man, Joel Embiid, in the meantime.

Joel Embiid is in great shape, and he should keep it up against the Bucks in his next game.

Embiid has 42 points in the Sixers’ last two games, both wins, and then 59 points against the Jazz on Sunday night.

He was dominant in both games, particularly the one against the Jazz on Sunday. In the fourth quarter, Embiid scored 26 of the team’s 27 points to help seal the victory over the Jazz.

Tyrese Maxey will most likely play on Friday.

James Harden suffered a right foot tendon strain in early November and was expected to be out for about a month, but he’s back in action two weeks later.

Springer is currently on assignment with the Delaware Blue Coats of the G League. Springer has played four minutes in two games for the 76ers this season.

Furkan Korkmaz (knee) will miss the game against Milwaukee on Friday.

Despite a slew of injuries this season, the Milwaukee Bucks have maintained their lead in the Eastern Conference standings.

Giannis Antetokounmpo will most likely play against the 76ers.

In 32 minutes against the Cavaliers on Wednesday, Giannis Antetokounmpo had 16 points (6-18 FG, 0-2 3Pt, 4-11 FT), 12 rebounds, and eight assists.

Antetokounmpo is having a down year in terms of efficiency, despite nearly posting a triple-double.

Antetokounmpo’s field-goal percentage of 51.1 is his lowest since 2015-16, and his free-throw percentage of 62.1 and three-point percentage of 22.9 are both career lows.

Jrue Holiday (ankle) is listed as questionable for Friday’s game against the 76ers.

Holiday has missed the Bucks’ last four games due to a sprained right ankle, but he practiced on Tuesday.

Connaughton (calf) will miss the 76ers game on Friday.

Khris Middleton (wrist) will miss Friday’s game against the 76ers.

Middleton is almost, but not quite, ready to return. On Monday, he’ll get another chance to play against the Trail Blazers.
