The 76ers head coach Doc Rivers announced before Saturday’s game between the 76ers and the Nuggets that he believes this situation is worth delaying.
Mike Scott is very active, providing at least eight players for the 76ers, but Rivers believes that he is not healthy enough to participate in NBA games. The 32-year-old has missed the past four games with a contusion on his left knee.
Rivers said on Saturday: “I think we have eight active players.” “Mike Scott is injured. I can tell you now that I can’t play him. I just don’t think he should be playing. “
On Tuesday, Scott played 46 minutes and scored 1
He said, “That’s it.” “What you just said.”
What was his relationship with Rivers entering the game like?
He said: “You must ask the doctor.” “I am not stingy.”
After winning with 45 points and 16 rebounds in a game against Miami against Miami, Joel Embiid has a broader performance on this issue. Rivers said his tight back was excluded from Saturday’s game. Rivers said Embiid started complaining the night before. Although Ben Simmons did not appear in the game’s initial injury report, his left knee was swollen and still sitting. The 76ers were later fined $25,000 for not listing him.
“It seems that all other games are constantly (postponed), but we, I think the league has been letting us play,” Embiid said. “There is no other explanation behind it, especially in the Denver game. We had to dress the injured players just to make sure we have enough players to participate in the game, while other teams don’t have so many players and the league doesn’t. Let any one of them play the injured player, just to ensure that the game is going on.
“So, it’s unfortunate, but this is the next person. Can’t complain. Victory is still the key, loss is still the key. We need to get all these victories. We need to continue fighting until those guys come back. That is our goal. jobs.”
Compared to his recent activity on Twitter, Embid’s reaction on Tuesday was actually a bit mild.
Although there is no evidence of a targeted conspiracy by the NBA, Embiid’s position is fair. So far this season, six NBA games have been postponed, including the last three games of the Celtics, and the COVID-19 agreement prevented the team from deploying eight players. The latest reports of Simmons and Embiid injuries may have something to do with the league’s apparent desire to avoid Saturday’s postponement.
The 76ers had two more healthy players than Tuesday, and eight members of the Heat were eliminated because of the health and safety agreement. In addition to Seth Curry who tested positive for COVID-19 on Thursday, Tobias Harris, Matisse Thybulle, Shaq Milton (Shake Milton) and Vincent Poirier (Vincent Poirier) also contended with the Heat. Furkan Korkmaz is on the sidelines due to left adductor tension.
After Terrance Ferguson left the team for personal reasons, he must now clear the league’s rules. Rivers believes Harris, Tibble, Milton and Porill may return to horse racing after the 76ers’ mini-series against the Heat. The Heat is scheduled to end on Thursday.
As far as Saturday’s game is concerned, there is no satisfactory answer yet. No matter what Scott knows, he will undoubtedly stick to his ideas.
