76ers have 13 back-to-back sets next yearAugust 12, 2019 | 01:54 PM
The 76ers will play in 13 back-to-back sets this upcoming season.
That's the same number of back-to-backs they played last year, which for the first time in Joel Embiid's career wasn't a huge issue for him. While he did receive some random rest (in non-back-to-back games) and missed time with a knee injury, he only sat out one back-to-back set during the 2018-19 season as a pure "load management" thing. Philly will play 15 games in March, with back-to-backs towards the end of the month, so it's possible those will be instances we'll see Embiid hit with some random rest.
