Philadelphia 76ers vs. Detroit Pistons: Injury report

The Philadelphia 76ers will be missing reserve power forward Mike Scott  (knee) and backup center Vincent Poirier (health protocols).

The big question is, will MVP-candidate center Joel Embiid play? He is listed as questionable with back tightness. With a big game against the Los Angeles Lakers coming up, it would not be a surprise if he sat this one out.

The Detroit Pistons will be without Derrick Rose due to knee soreness. Obviously, Killian Hayes is out for a while with a torn hip labrum.

Pistons odds against Sixers on Monday night

Detroit Pistons: They do not get blown out, they just lose in ways to rip the heart of their fans, as they once again did on Sunday. It was their third close loss in a week.
Philadelphia 76ers: Normally, the 76ers fall apart when Embiid does not play. They are 0-3 in games this season he was not in. His backup is 35-year-old Dwight Howard. They could be looking ahead to Wednesday’s game with the Lakers. Trap Game?

Pistons odds best bet: (1-1): Go with the under on this one

Detroit will have Blake Griffin back after sitting out Sunday. The Sixers now know the Pistons are not a walkover despite their record, barely hanging on to beat them the last time. As the third game in four days for both teams, my bet is there will be tired legs, so I do not think this will be a high scoring game.
