T.J. McConnell specifically is wearing Embiid on his chest.

The Sixers' backup point guard was rocking a lovely Embiid t-shirt today down in Atlanta remeniscent of that 90s-era Sixers logo.

Brett Brown has faith that the rest of the team will step up in Jojo's absence.

"I believe in the group," Brown said. "Defense is where our premortem would be. If we're not able to get that home court, where are we going to die? It's going to be through our defense. We had a privilege, a luxury in Joel Embiid behind our defense. 

"We've got to be perfect."

At least TJ looks the part.
