Sixers Stumble in Loss to Pistons Without Joel Embiid

Sixers Grind Out Road Win Over Pistons Behind Ben Simmons and Joel Embiid

Henderson has been one of the most consistent Sixers this season, averaging 9.9 points on 44 percent shooting from the field, 37 percent from three and 85 percent from the line.

He made three threes against the Warriors and Wizards but has otherwise struggled in his last four games, going 13 for 39 (33 percent) from the field.

Without Henderson, Nik Stauskas should play more than his average of 26.8 minutes. It will also likely mean more playing time this weekend for Timothe Luwawu-Cabarrot and Justin Anderson.
