Sixers face Brooklyn Nets for 2021-22 home opener

The start of the Sixers’ 2021-22 campaign hasn’t been able to escape the constant drama surrounding Ben Simmons, but scattered around the ongoing Simmons situation, there’s actually some basketball to be played.

On Friday, the Sixers get to return to Philly for their home opener against the Brooklyn Nets.

Joel Embiid is listed as questionable with right knee soreness after bothering his knee slightly on Wednesday against New Orleans. Seeing as this is nothing major and the Nets are a top opponent, it still feels like there’s a good chance Embiid suits up for this game.
