Bet Tonight's NBA Action

Joel Embiid will travel to Boston for tonight's game but remains questionable with gastroenteritis. Gerald Henderson, meanwhile, is probable for tonight's game with a hip injury and Sergio Rodriguez (left ankle) is also probable. The only player that is questionable for Philadelphia tonight is Robert Covington, who is dealing with a back injury.

Isaiah Thomas scored 29 points with a career-high 15 assists in Tuesday's 115-99 win over the Jazz. He's coming off a career-high 52-point game and despite being snubbed of the Eastern Conference Player of the Month Award for December, he's looking great so far in January. He finished 10-of-18 from the field and made 4-of-4 from the free throw line. In his return from a one-game absence, Avery Bradley (illness) also added 14 points in 36 minutes.
