The Philadelphia 76ers were without Joel Embiid, though they came close to holding off the Oklahoma City Thunder in a 102-97 loss in a scrimmage in the NBA bubble on Sunday. Embiid was sidelined due to right calf tightness, something that popped up in the first scrimmage for the Sixers. The extent of the injury is unknown, so we’ll have to see if Embiid is ready by next week.
The Thunder were down late, so it was looking like the Sixers were going to sneak away with a win without Embiid. Enter Andre Roberson, who nailed back-to-back 3-pointers to give OKC the win.
