The Sixers seemingly dodged a bullet last night when it was reported that there was no structural damage to Joel’s shoulder after suffering a sprain during Wednesday’s loss vs the Cavs.
Joel, I know you are reading this…
TAKE. YOUR. TIME.
We all know that you are a tough player and an even tougher competitor. We know you want to show the world that you can play through injury and that you are the best in the world, but we need you to play this smart.
On the bright side, Tobias Harris, Al Horford, and Shake Milton picked up the slack last night. Combining for 68 of the 115 points scored while shooting a blistering 81% from 3 on 15 shots combined.
Given, the game was played at home against the Knicks where the Sixers are a league’s best 28-2.
