Steve Kerr stated of the irritation that “it doesn’t make feeling to engage in him.” Ideally the irritation goes down, and no additional damage is revealed.
The Warriors are not the only workforce small a star in the nationally-televised contest. Philadelphia will be with out All-Star starter Joel Embiid, who is going through troubling knee soreness, and hasn’t played considering that the All-Star crack.
Joel Embiid will not engage in towards Golden State.
We are even now awaiting for an formal update from the workforce. #Sixers
