“The dynamic of the team changes, whether you like it or not,” said guard T.J. McConnell, who had similar experiences while in Philly; the 76ers waited two years for Joel Embiid to return from foot injuries, a year for Ben Simmons to debut after season-ending foot surgery during his rookie training camp and most of a year for Markelle Fultz to recover from what was finally diagnosed as neurogenic thoracic outlet syndrome. “You’re adding an All-Star, so the team changes for the better,” McConnell said. “I just feel like we have a bunch of guys here that buy into the betterment of the team, sacrifice for the greater good. And that’s what you have to do. When you have a guy that’s been out and he gets thrown back in the lineup, you have to sacrifice for the greater good — and that’s us going in the playoffs and making a run at this thing.”
