Flyers Players Want the ‘Woos’ to Stop
Sixers, Kings postponed due to unsafe playing surface

Sixers increase Embiid's playing time


By Brandon Apter, Sports Talk Philly editor  

Philadelphia 76ers center Joel Embiid had a CT scan earlier this week and and according to the 7-foot-2 native of Cameroon, it "looked great". Following the results, the Sixers have decided to up Embiid's minutes from 24 to 28 beginning tonight against the Sacramento Kings.

A few weeks ago, we learned from Brett Brown that Embiid's 24-minute restriction was likely to last until at least Christmas before being re-evaluated. Despite playing with a restriction, Embiid has still found ways to make a huge impact on the Sixers, averaging 18.7 points, 7.8 rebounds and 2.4 blocks per game.
