In all, the Sixers will play five games in the seven-day stretch between March 11 and March 17. Depending on when the clock for Embiid and Simmons’ stints in the health and safety protocol starts, that would put them in real jeopardy of missing the trip against the Bulls and the Wizards. If Embiid and Simmons are out more than a week — either because of a longer-than-anticipated stint in the health and safety protocol, or the far more concerning possibility that they test positive over the next few days — the Sixers’ hectic start to the second half-schedule could leave them woefully short-handed for a decent chunk of games.
