I am rooting for Fultz. I hope he comes back strong in Orlando.

Same. I'd be really happy if he just tears it up down there.

Me too. There's no reason the Magic don't put the ball into his hands a let him be a 25-30% usage guy. Fournier, Augustine, and Grant can take a back seat.
Most talent in the league. We don't want or need AD.

If Fultz goes to Orlando and is able to be a 25-30% usage guy this season then the Sixers would have made a big mistake trading him.

of course they did.  There was no reason at all for them to trade Fultz.

I agree with Moranis that Philly needed to wait out Fultz' next year to see if he could turn things around.

That said, Fultz has shown he is not happy in Philly and has no faith in their medical and training staff. He has caused tension in the locker room and my guess is the coaching staff has given up on him. These are the reason he is in Orlando right now.

Also, if the IT situation has taught us anything it's that teams know a lot more about behind the scenes health and other issues than we do, so perhaps there is even more behind the scenes about Fultz that we know nothing about that could be an issue Philly doesn't want to deal with anymore.

Embid out with Knee soreness, to be reevaluated in one week

Philadelphia 76ers’ star Joel Embiid will miss some time with knee soreness. According to head coach Brett Brown, the two-time All-Star, who played in Sunday’s contest had an MRI yesterday, courtesy of Keith Pompey of the Philadelphia Inquirer.

Apparently there was no structural damage but it may be some “tendinitis” which coach Brown said is fairly common.

Embiid raised eyebrows when he lept into the stands in a game against the New York Knicks last week. He then participated in the All-Star game. It’s unclear if there was a moment an injury was sustained although it did not appear that way while watching his recent play.

Will be interesting to see how they play without him. Who gets his minutes? Boban and Bolden??

If he's out for just a week then it shouldn't be too bad for them as they do have a few easier games coming up (Heat, tough game against Portland, then Pelicans).

With that said, yeah they better hope it's not a longer injury because after that, their schedule gets tougher. Unlike the Raptors and Celtics, the Sixers really aren't a team built to win many games w/o Embiid who they run their team through. As talented as they are they don't have the kind of depth to withstand not having Embiid against good teams and Simmons is still a big liability on offense.
