The Philadelphia 76ers have only a handful of games remaining in the regular season but are limping to the finish line. Injuries have contributed to their struggles of late, and the 76ers would like to get healthy before the playoffs. However, they can’t afford to rest their star players with playoff seeding on the line. While they are unlikely to catch the Boston Celtics for the second seed in the East, they can secure the third seed.

That said, the Cleveland Cavaliers have made up significant ground with their recent play, and a bad stretch by the 76ers could cause them to drop from third to fourth in the East. Not if 76ers superstar and MVP candidate Joel Embiid can help it, but will he play their next game against the Dallas Mavericks?
