Embiid was already scheduled to miss tonight's game at home vs. the Knicks, the front end of a back-to-back as the Sixers host the Bucks on Tuesday.

The Sixers are dealing with a bit of a COVID-19 issue, it seems, as Tobias Harris, Matisse Thybulle, and Isaiah are already in the health and safety protocols.

Harris has not played since October 30th.

On November 4th, guard Isaiah Joe has entered health and safety protocols ahead of Thursday's game against the Pistons, and as a result, the entire Sixers team was tested for COVID-19.

Charania reports a significant amount of the Sixers' staff has received the booster shot.
