Joel Embiid hasn't yet been cleared for full contact. "He's getting there," Brett Brown said this morning. "To just let him go out there (and play in Game 3) right now, it's still all on the table. You guys know what I know. He did some contact yesterday, it's progressing. I don't feel like I can really share anything new." Embiid remains doubtful for Game 3.

Sixers coach Brett Brown says Markelle Fultz will backup Ben Simmons at point guard in Game 3. In Game 2, T.J. McConnell filled that role ahead of Fultz.
