76ers—Joel Embiid (orbital/concussion) and Timothé Luwawu-Cabarrot (knee) are out; Justin Anderson (ankle) is questionable.
What to watch for
The Hawks (21-54) return home after losing five of six games during their trip against Western Conference opponents. Leading scorer Dennis Schroder (ankle) will miss his third consecutive game.
With Josh Magette at Erie of the G League for a playoff game, the Hawks will have one true point guard (Isaiah Taylor) available to play tonight.
“Our wings will get a chance,” Hawks coach Mike Budenholzer said. “Everybody wants to be a point guard. Maybe we will let the big guys be a point guard for a while. We’ll get through.”
The Sixers (44-30) have clinched their first playoff berth since 2012. All-Star center Joel Embiid reportedly will miss two to four weeks after he suffered a fractured orbital bone Wednesday that will require surgery.
