NBA Injury News

6:30 p.m. ET Update: Joel Embiid will start Monday despite a sore left ankle that he suffered in the previous game. Malcolm Brogdon has been cleared to play Monday after missing the Pacers’ previous game with a sore right knee.

Both Jeremy Lamb and Tobias Harris will sit out due to knee issues.

Kristaps Porzingis will suit up Monday despite lingering issues with his lower back.


Joel Embiid is questionable for Monday’s game against the Indiana Pacers with a sore ankle. Tobias Harris is also questionable for tonight’s matchup as he nurses a bruised knee. Harris missed the Sixers’ last game with the same injury.

On the other side of that matchup, the Pacers are monitoring Malcolm Brogdon and Jeremy Lamb ahead of tonight’s game. Brogdon and Jeremy Lamb are both questionable with knee soreness.

Kristaps Porzingis has been listed probable for Monday’s game against the Orlando Magic due to a stiff lower back. Porzingis missed three games with the same injury before returning to the lineup on Saturday.

Along with missing Devonte’ Graham for the fifth game in a row with a knee injury, the Charlotte Hornets will be without Gordon Hayward and Cody Zeller Monday. Zeller missed the previous contest due to a bruised hip, and Hayward played in the last two games despite a hand injury.
