Philadelphia begins its post-All Star Break schedule in Chicago on Thursday night and neither Joel Embiid nor Ben Simmons is in the lineup.
Both had their hair cut by a barber who later tested positive for the coronavirus before the All-Star Game. They have been in the health and safety protocol since.
The Sixers lead the Bulls by seven points at the half. They went into the game as 3.5-point underdogs.
Tony Bradley, who got the start in place of Embiid, has 12 points on 6-for-6 shooting. Dwight Howard has eight more off the bench.
Tobias Harris has 11 points and Danny Green, Seth Curry, and Furkan Korkmaz all have nine apiece.
The Wizards dropped their first game out of the break to the Grizzlies on Wednesday, 127–112.
It was Washington’s second loss to Memphis it its last three games, dating back to the first half of the season.
Bradley Beal (1-of-8 from three) did not shoot well and Jonas Valanciunas dominated the paint for the Grizzlies, finishing with 29 points and 20 rebounds.
The Wizards played the Sixers in their first game of the season and then again on January 6th. Philadelphia got the best of them both times but by just a 11 points total. Both matchups were played in Philadelphia.

Free Philadelphia 76ers vs. Washington Wizards NBA Prediction: Philadelphia’s defense mucks it up.
Washington has just four losses since Valentine’s Day: one to Boston, which it also beat; one to Los Angeles, which it also beat; and then those two to Memphis, which has its number.
Philly’s defense can render Washington’s offense inefficient. It will not have enough firepower to make this a blowout without Simmons and Embiid, whose status has not yet been determined, but its defense will keep it in the game.
A third close victory and a season sweep may be in the cards. Lean Washington +5 and the under.
