Sixers coach Brett Brown on Markelle Fultz’s absence: ‘We miss him’ “If he could, he’d play 48 minutes,” Brown told reporters (via philly.com). “And I feel that if there’s any responsibility that we have as an organization is to preserve our player’s health. It was clear to us and Joel that he was fatigued over the past few games, especially.”Brown added that he made the decision to sit Embiid while keeping in mind the big picture. He wants to enter the playoffs with all of his players healthy. Related News Brown also said he has not decided whether Mike Muscala or Amir Johnson would start in Embiid’s place.The 24-year-old hasn’t missed a game yet this season, but he had surgery in March to repair a fractured orbital bone in his left eye and missed several games during the playoffs. Embiid has averaged 26.3 points and 13.3 rebounds through 26 games. The 76ers will have to face the Pistons without one of their star players. Coach Brett Brown told reporters Friday that center Joel Embiid won’t play Friday as Philadelphia is giving him a day to rest. NBA free agency rumors: 76ers meet with Arron Afflalo, three other guards “How do you deliver them in a healthy, spirited fashion when it matters the most?” he said. “So the decision to sit Joel tonight is mine. It’s always delivered with the purpose to try to help him.”
