Eleven Sixers appear on the NBA’s injury report posted Friday night at 8:30 p.m. 

Listed as out for Saturday’s scheduled game against the Nuggets for reasons unrelated to COVID-19 are Furkan Korkmaz (left adductor strain), Mike Scott (left knee contusion) and Terrance Ferguson (personal reasons).

What’s more significant is that seven players are listed as questionable because of health and safety protocols. A source told NBC Sports Philadelphia the team is awaiting COVID-19 test results and contact tracing.

The questionable players are:

  • Joel Embiid
  • Danny Green
  • Tobias Harris
  • Shake Milton
  • Vincent Poirier 
  • Paul Reed
  • Matisse Thybulle

Seth Curry is listed as out. ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski reported Thursday that the Sixers learned of Curry testing positive for COVID-19 during their loss Thursday to the Nets. Curry was visible on the TNT broadcast wearing a mask during the first quarter.

Once the Sixers receive their test results and contact tracing is completed, there should be more clarity on what’s next. For now, much is questionable.
