Isaiah Canaan arrived in Philadelphia Friday after the Sixers traded for him on Thursday. He did not play in the Sixers' loss to Indiana that night, but he will play Sunday when they face the Magic in Orlando. "He will start," Brett Brown said Saturday after practice. "He is our starting point guard. Welcome to the Philadelphia 76ers in 2015. I am thrilled to do it. We will go with J. Rich (Jason Richardson) again and Robert [Covington] and Isaiah. If they can do anything, those three can shoot." CSNPhilly.com

Brett Brown has his work cut out for the Sixers' final 28 games. Two players who were in his regular rotation, Michael Carter-Williams and K.J. McDaniels, are now part of someone else's organization. The Sixers' head coach must quickly make a group of 15 players a cohesive unit. "We have to concentrate on what we stand for, which is defense," Brown said Saturday afternoon. "And we have to try and grow some level of comfort with our offense. I feel very naked on both sides of the ball right now. I don't feel as organized as we were two weeks ago, which is fair enough."

It seemed to be an innocent question, but for some reason, it seemed to catch the 76ers off guard. When asked for an update on Tony Wroten, who is out with a torn ACL in his right knee and said last week he needed surgery, Brett Brown said, "I'm not sure." He then looked to public relations director Mike Preston for assistance. Preston said Wroten "was scheduled for a procedure [yesterday]." Pressed for more, Preston said they didn't know more.

While it's expected that the Sixers will sit Embiid all year, just like they did with Nerlens Noel (torn ACL) the season before, Brown insisted the only thing he knows is that Embiid won't be back until after the mid-February all-star game. “We're not prepared to give any further timeline right now,” said Brown before Wednesday night's game at the Wells Fargo Center. “I go right back to how we handled Nerlens. I think everybody's got to see how we're treating our guys and the risk involved when somebody is not 100 percent, especially with a man of (Embiid's) size.” The Intelligencer
