Joel Embiid (ankle) 'very questionable' for 76ers Monday

Philadelphia 76ers center Joel Embiid is "very questionable" for Monday's game against the Indiana Pacers due to a left ankle sprain, per head coach Doc Rivers.

What It Means:

Embiid injured his ankle during Saturday's matchup but managed to play through it and finished with 42 points and 13 boards, plus plenty more. Tobias Harris (knee) has been ruled out, so Ben Simmons will be leaned on to lead the offense if Embiid is also sidelined. Tony Bradley and Dwight Howard would absorb most of Embiid's minutes at center.

Simmons is averaging an additional 4.8 FanDuel points per game without Embiid this season. He has a salary of $9,000 on Monday's seven-game slate.
