Michael Singer: Nikola Jokic is sore following his knee-to-knee collision, but there’s nothing structurally wrong, I’m told. I’d expect him to be questionable with the same diagnosis — a right knee contusion — for Friday. Team is generally conservative, so wouldn’t be surprised if he sat out.
Noah Levick: For Sixers-Pistons tomorrow, Joel Embiid (right knee soreness) and Shake Milton (right ankle sprain) are listed as questionable. Ben Simmons (personal reasons) and Grant Riller (left knee injury recovery) are still out.

. @ramonashelburne on Joel Embiid playing through injuries (via NBA Today). “He told me after this game in New Orleans, he couldn’t walk for two days.” 😳 (via NBA Today)
He said recently that he deserves to be in the same conversation as Luka Doncic and Trae Young and the other young stars of the NBA. Is that what you’ve seen? Udonis Haslem: Facts. He just hasn’t been given the keys. He came to a team that’s been successful and didn’t need a superstar right away…he came into a different situation. But skillswise, talent wise, damn right. Them other boys ain’t been to the Finals yet, and that’s not to knock them, but you see what [Herro] did. Boy got game. Straight up and down. And if he was on a team, probably not a good team, and he got to go out there and do his thing? Damn right he’d be in those conversations.
So….the obvious question then is: what happens when somebody doesn’t fall in line? Udonis Haslem: Well….I done tried to kill a few muhfuckas in here for sure! They had to break it up! I ain’t sayin’ no names! They know who they is. I done had to put my hands on some people before! It’s just what it is.
