Game Preview

The key question entering Friday night’s matchup between the visiting Philadelphia 76ers and the Boston Celtics involves Philadelphia center Joel Embiid, who was scratched from Wednesday’s loss to New Orleans because of an illness.

Will Embiid play against Boston? And if he does play, how effective will he be?

Embiid, who is officially listed as questionable due to illness, has appeared in 16 of Philadelphia’s 18 games this season and is averaging 32.0 points, 11.3 rebounds and 6.6 assists per contest. The 76ers are 0-2 when he’s not in the lineup.
