As the Philadelphia 76ers look to build off their three-game winning streak and look to finish the three-game homestand on a high note when they host the Chicago Bulls on Friday, they will have to do so without Joel Embiid.

For the second consecutive game, Embiid is out due to left foot soreness. The big fella was out for Wednesday’s win over the Indiana Pacers as the Sixers were able to get big performances out of James Harden, De’Anthony Melton, Tyrese Maxey, and Montrezl Harrell.

As they prepare to take on a Bulls team that features a talented big man in Nikola Vucevic as well as Andre Drummond off the bench, it will be a challenge to do so without Embiid.

The Sixers are still more than capable of picking up another win. Led by Harden and Maxey continuing to work his way back into things, Philadelphia can easily come up with a win if they come out with the right mindset.
