Joel Embiid, Sixers come in ranked 9th in ESPN's NBA Power Rankings




 

Joel Embiid and the Philadelphia 76ers have certainly had a tough time recently as they continue to get healthy and work to get everybody on the same page, but they still do remain above .500. The team sits at 12-11 and they are beginning to get everybody back in the lineup.

As a new week gets set to begin, the Sixers still have much to figure out-notably the Ben Simmons situation. However, they have a chance to make some moves ahead. They will take on a shorthanded Charlotte Hornets team on Monday for two games before returning home on Thursday to host the Utah Jazz and a big matchup with the Golden State Warriors on Saturday.

A new week also means a new edition of ESPN's Power Rankings are out and the Sixers have moved up three spots from 12 as they are now sitting at nine in their rankings:

The Sixers should have Tobias Harris back on Monday after he missed Friday's win over the Atlanta Hawks. That will be a big help to Embiid and Tyrese Maxey out on the offensive end of the floor as they need somebody to match up with the explosive Hornets who scored 130 points on Sunday.
