Asked whether or not Joel Embiid (left knee soreness) would make the Sixers’ trip to Houston on Friday, coach Brett Brown said: “We are still going through that.

It’s something you embrace, and I feel like it’s just even more fun because it’s something that I feel is unique and I don’t see many guys that can do the same things that I do.
