11/10/2019@ MINNESOTA              
11/17/2019@ MEMPHIS              
PHILADELPHIA: LAST SEASON: 51-31, lost in Eastern Conference semis
COACH: Brett Brown (seventh season).
PROJECTED STARTING FIVE: C Joel Embiid (27.5 ppg, 13.6 rpg), F Tobias Harris (18.2 ppg), F Al Horford (13.6), G Josh Richardson (16 ppg), G Ben Simmons (16.9 ppg, 7.7 apg).
KEY LOSSES: G JJ Redick, G Jimmy Butler
KEY ADDITIONS: G Josh Richardson, F Al Horford, F Matisse Thybulle
PLAYERS TO WATCH: The 76ers will go as far as Simmons and Embiid will take them. Both All-Stars are locked in for years with long-term deals and enter the season as serious MVP candidates. But if even one goes down with a serious injury, the Sixers will be in trouble. Embiid has never played more than 64 games in a season and the Sixers are serious about trying to limit his workload even more during the regular season to keep him fresh for the playoffs.
OUTLOOK: From tanking to title contention, the Sixers believe they are good enough to win the Eastern Conference, and make a run at an NBA championship. The Sixers were knocked out of the Eastern Conference semifinals for the second straight season but believed signing Horford away from fellow contender Boston can help push them over the top.
DENVER: LAST SEASON: 54-28, lost 4-3 to Portland in Western Conference semifinals.
COACH: Michael Malone (fifth season with Nuggets, 173-155; seventh season overall, 212-222).
PROJECTED STARTING FIVE: G Jamal Murray (18.2 ppg), G Gary Harris (12.9), F Paul Millsap (12.6), C Nikola Jokic (20.1), G Will Barton (11.5).
KEY LOSSES: G Isaiah Thomas, F Trey Lyles, C Thomas Welsh.
KEY ADDITIONS: F Jerami Grant, C Bol Bol, F Michael Porter Jr.
PLAYERS TO WATCH: Porter was the 14th overall pick in 2018 and missed all of last season as he recovered from back surgery. He skipped the Summer League in Las Vegas due to a balky knee. Now, he's healthy and ready to contribute. A healthy Porter gives the Nuggets another dimension on the perimeter, and another piece to add to the core of Murray, Harris, Jokic and Millsap.
OUTLOOK: The Nuggets have improved every season since Malone took over, going from 33 wins his first season to 40, 46 and 54 last season when they earned the No. 2 seed in the West. They didn't make any splashy moves in the offseason although they did bring back Millsap, picking up his $30 million option and agreed on a $170 million extension for Murray. Behind MVP-candidate Jokic, the Nuggets are a legit title contender.
Simmons-less Sixers set to face Nuggets

The Philadelphia 76ers got one superstar back into the lineup but might have to play without a different one when they visit the Denver Nuggets on Friday night.

Joel Embiid returned Wednesday night after serving a two-game suspension for his scuffle with Minnesota's Karl-Anthony Towns on Oct. 30, a boost for Philadelphia's lineup. But now Ben Simmons will likely miss three games with a Grade 1 AC joint sprain in his right shoulder, according to multiple reports on Thursday. Simmons suffered the injury in Wednesday's 106-104 loss at Utah.

Simmons was hurt when he hit the chest of Jazz forward Royce O'Neale on a post-up move in the first half and didn't return.

"I hope he's going to be all right," Sixers teammate Tobias Harris said after the game. "I checked him after the game. He said he's going to be OK.

"Hopefully it's nothing too crazy. Hopefully he will be OK for next game. Until then, we will have to have the next man up mentality and be ready."

Sixers coach Brett Brown said the team missed Simmons' defensive presence more than his offense, which was boosted by Embiid's return. Embiid finished with 27 points and 16 rebounds against the Jazz but couldn't prevent Philadelphia's second straight loss.

"Getting suspended is not great for me, or for the team, so it's never going to happen again," Embiid said.

The Nuggets are dealing with their own health issues, which came in a win over Miami on Tuesday night. Guard Gary Harris didn't play in the second half because of an ankle injury suffered in the first half, and Paul Millsap suffered a cut on his forehead when he was knocked into Justise Winslow early in the third quarter.

Trainers stopped the bleeding, but after hitting two free throws Millsap left the game and didn't return. Harris and Millsap took part in practice Thursday, and coach Michael Malone said both players should be back in the lineup against Philadelphia.

Friday's game will pit two of the best young big men in the NBA in Embiid and Denver's Nikola Jokic. Embiid showed his worth with a big game against the Jazz but Jokic has yet to find a groove eight games into this season.

He is considered one of the best passers in the league -- not just among big men -- and at times he looks for teammates more than his own shot. He's putting up an average of 12.4, and in Denver's two losses he attempted a total of 14.

It's a subject that Malone gets asked about often, and the coach has grown weary of addressing his best player's aggressiveness.

"This is getting a little ridiculous," he told reporters after Thursday's practice.

Although his shots are down, Jokic is still producing. He is averaging 9.7 rebounds and 5.9 assists and has two triple-doubles.

One reason Jokic tends to look for teammates more than his own shot is Denver's deep roster. Five players are averaging double figures in scoring, led by guard Jamal Murray at 18.9 a game, and the Nuggets can get big nights from different areas.

Tuesday night Will Barton returned from a two-game absence due to a sore toe to score 15 points and grab 10 rebounds.
