The Philadelphia 76ers will look to bounce back with a win on Sunday as they travel to take on the winless Oklahoma City Thunder.

Joel Embiid is dealing with soreness in his right knee, and that has him listed as questionable for Sunday's game.

Is Joel Embiid Playing Tonight?

This section will be updated when Joel Embiid's status is made official on Sunday.

Missing Embiid would be a huge blow for the Sixers, as Andre Drummond (ankle) is also doubtful.

Embiid has racked up 41 points, 14 rebounds, 9 assists, 5 blocks and 3 steals in 55 minutes across his first two games of the season, and he wouldn't likely have much trouble against the OKC frontcourt. Derrick Favors and Isaiah Roby have split starts at the five for the Thunder, combining for 21 rebounds in 54 minutes between the two of them.

FanDuel Sportsbook's NBA odds for the game have yet to be released, but expect the 76ers to be comfortable favorites even if Embiid can't go.
