Timothy An
Wed, Dec 11th
 Joel Embiid has been ruled out for Saturday's game versus the Cleveland Cavaliers due to a left hip contusion. It's a back-to-back set for the 76ers so it's not surprising to see the 76ers sit Embiid in this game against the Cavaliers. Kyle O'Quinn will start in his place.
