Philadelphia 76ers vs Denver Nuggets Final Injury Report date – 28/01/2023: Is Joel Embiid Playing against Denver Nuggets tonight?

This season, Embiid is averaging 33.4 points, 9.8 rebounds, and 4.1 assists per game, all career highs.

When they play the Denver Nuggets in the early afternoon session on Saturday on ABC, the Philadelphia 76ers will start the triple-header. The crucial question is whether 76ers centre Joel Embiid will wear a uniform to face reigning MVP Nikola Jokic. The most recent information regarding Joel Embiid’s performance in the match is provided below.

Joel Embiid has assumed the lead in the league’s race for the scoring championship after Luka Doncic staggered off the court early in the Mavs’ victory over Phoenix.

This season, Joel Embiid is averaging 33.4 points, 9.8 rebounds, and 4.1 assists per game, all career highs. His buckets appear to be coming to him more readily than ever before. And he has switched from his prior post-dominant style to relying more on pick-and-roll opportunities to score.

Joel Embiid Injury Incident

Once again, the 76ers have listed Embiid as questionable for the contest with foot soreness. Embiid did play 35 minutes in the team’s last game and will be motivated to have a matchup with Jokic. After losing out on the MVP award last year to him. But ultimately the team will think of what’s best for Joel Embiid in the long run. There’s a good chance this decision gets taken down to the wire.

The Sixers’ injury report does not list any additional players, but the Nuggets might be shorthanded because Jamal Murray and Michael Porter Jr. are both doubtful about playing. Bruce Brown is also doubtful, while Kentavious Caldwell-Pope, who was previously listed as probable, might still be a candidate.

Joel Embiid is out to disprove his detractors after hearing all the talk about his All-Star started omission. There is no better way to accomplish it than to triumph in a contest against the current MVP.

Even more likely, though, is that Embiid will show up for the matchup with Nikola Jokic and his squad. They categories Jokic as “probable” on Denver’s injury list, which means he will probably play in the game.

If he continues to score at this rate, he would surpass the legendary Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, who averaged 34.8 points per game in his third season, in terms of points per game for a centre.
