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.

The Process will be heading to China next season as the Philadelphia 76ers will face the Dallas Mavericks in the NBA China Games 2018. The Mavericks and Sixers will meet twice on Oct. 5 in Shanghai and Oct. 8 in Shenzhen. This will be the first time the Mavericks and Sixers play in China. "When I played in the 2008 Beijing Olympics, I witnessed China's enthusiasm for basketball firsthand," Dallas Dirk Nowitzki said in a statement. "It will be a fantastic experience for our franchise to play in China for the first time. We're also excited about the possibility of reconnecting with two great Chinese players who played for the Mavericks, Wang Zhizhi and Yi Jianlian."
