Brett Brown Leaning Towards Starting Dario Saric, Joel Embiid In Preseason Opener

PHILADELPHIA (CBS) — Dario Saric and Joel Embiid will make their Philadelphia 76ers debuts on Tuesday night, when the Sixers open their preseason slate against the Boston Celtics.

Head coach Brett Brown says he plans to start Saric at power forward and probably will start Embiid at center.

Unfortunately, Ben Simmons won’t be joining Saric and Embiid. Simmons fractured a bone in his right foot and could miss about three months, according to reports.

Embiid told Tom Moore that he “can’t wait for tomorrow.” It will be his first game action since March of 2014.
