Philadelphia 76ers’ marquee player Joel Embiid has delivered his honest opinion on the new NBA Covid-19 protocols after more than 50 players have entered the Health and Safety protocols since the beginning of December.

With almost every team suffering with players being unavailable after entering the Health and Safety Protocol, Philadelphia 76ers is one among them. With teams like Brooklyn Nets, Los Angeles Lakers and Chicago Bulls clearly getting affected with the Covid-19 outbreak, 76ers have managed to maintain their whims as majority of their marquee players are still safe. Having said that, with cases ramping up rapidly, it will be interesting to see what the take of Adam Silver will be as the Christmas Day games are approaching quickly.
