Tobias Harris placed in NBA’s Health and Safety protocol, will miss tonight’s game against Portland
A tough blow to the 76ers just ahead of their game tonight against the Portland Trail Blazers. Forward Tobias Harris was placed in the NBA’s health and safety protocols. This move was likely due to a positive COVID test, and he has been ruled out for tonight.
According to Adrian Wojnarowski, the 76ers will know more in the next 12-24 hours. Alongside Harris, Joel Embiid is also out tonight due to rest. If he does test positive and is vaccinated, the Sixers will likely be without Tobias Harris for roughly the following week.
Over the next week, the 76ers have a tough schedule, facing the Chicago Bulls twice, the Knicks, and the Milwaukee Bucks. They were close matchups even without Ben Simmons, but it’s going to be a problematic stretch without Harris as well. Hopefully, all is okay, and he will be back to full health in no time. Tip-off is just ten minutes away, with the Sixers hoping to win their third straight game.
