76ers' Embiid carries bigger role vs. Pistons if Simmons out

Joel Embiid has gotten off to a hot start this season. The Philadelphia 76ers might need even more production from their star center if their floor leader is sidelined on Tuesday.

The Sixers are 2-1 with Embiid averaging 28.3 points, 10.7 rebounds and 2.7 assists. He had 32 points in a 116-115 win over Orlando on Saturday.

Philadelphia played most of the game without Ben Simmons, who departed with back tightness. Simmons didn't practice on Monday and is listed as questionable to play at Detroit on Tuesday.
