The Sixers enter Thursday having won nine of their past 10 games. Joel Embiid remains out and there hasn’t been any indication he’ll be back this week. Philly really has no reason to rush back the MVP candidate as long as the team keeps winning, right? Tobias Harris has stepped up on offense and Tony Bradley and Dwight Howard have been great filling in at center.
The Lakers could be in trouble if a move isn’t made at the deadline. L.A. is without LeBron James and Anthony Davis for the foreseeable future. We don’t know when either will be back. The Lakers have lost three in a row since LeBron went down. The team lacks an identify and doesn’t have a go-to scorer, really. The Lakers could make a play for Victor Oladipo or Kyle Lowry, even Norman Powell. Any of those players would help bridge the gap for James and AD to return.
