This seems to be only a preventative situation. The Sixers want to keep Embiid and Okafor healthy for the stretch of this season and their careers. The Sixers are looking long term with these two young stars.
Ben Simmons Headshot

Simmons underwent a CT scan Thursday that revealed that he was still dealing with a fractured right foot, but it's unclear whether it's a new fracture or his existing fracture that's showing up on the scans, John Barchard of SportsRadio 94 WIP reports.

Added 9:45 am (EST)
Details remain very scarce, but expect coach Brett Brown to provide a formal update on the No. 1 overall pick's condition when the 76ers conclude their morning shootaround Friday. Brown has previously maintained that he expected Simmons to play at some point after the All-Star break, but if this latest report is correct and the rookie's foot hasn't fully healed as the team had hoped, his chances of suiting up in 2016-17 would drastically diminish.
Andre Iguodala Headshot

Iguodala registered eight points (2-6 FG, 0-2 3Pt, 4-4 FT), six rebounds, four assists, one steal and one block over 30 minutes in Thursday's 123-113 win over the Clippers.

Added 9:36 am (EST)
The veteran submitted a typically well-rounded stat line, turning his second straight solid game on the glass in the process. Iguodala has generated a particularly strong offensive effort in February, posting three double-digit scoring tallies and averaging a season-best 9.0 points during the month.
Guerschon Yabusele Headshot

Yabusele, who is currently playing with the Shanghai Sharks of the Chinese Basketball Association, is likely to report to the D-League's Maine Red Claws once the CBA season ends, Scott Souza of the Providence Journal reports.

Added 9:35 am (EST)
One of the Celtics' three first-round draft picks this past June, Yabusele took part with Boston in summer league before joining the CBA in the fall. He's averaging 21.5 points, 9.5 rebounds and 2.1 assists in 30.4 minutes per game over his 38 appearances for the Sharks, while showcasing efficient shooting from the field. Given the inflated nature of CBA statistics, Yabusele's numbers should be taken with a grain of salt, but the Celtics should have a better idea of his talent level if he's able to get about a month of games in at the D-League level. The French forward could be in contention for a roster spot with the Celtics as soon as 2017-18.
Draymond Green Headshot

Green totaled seven points (2-4 FG, 1-1 3Pt, 2-2 FT), six rebounds, four assists and two steals over 23 minutes in Thursday's 123-113 win over the Clippers.

Added 9:31 am (EST)
Green committed a game-high six turnovers and was minimally involved on the offensive end, as Stephen Curry, Kevin Durant and Klay Thompson did the majority of the heavy lifting. The fifth-year pro has posted six straight single-digit scoring efforts and is averaging a season-low 8.4 points in February. While he's still providing solid returns in rebounds (6.9) and assists (6.0), those numbers also represent his poorest monthly figures in those categories. However, Green has made up for some of the shortfall with an excellent defensive month, as he's averaging a season-best 1.9 blocks and 2.9 steals in February, with the latter figure significantly buoyed by his jaw-dropping 10-steal effort against the Grizzlies on Feb. 10.
Klay Thompson Headshot

Thompson collected 18 points (7-12 FG, 2-5 3Pt, 2-2 FT) and four assists over 31 minutes in Thursday's 123-113 victory over the Clippers.

Added 9:22 am (EST)
With teammates Stephen Curry and Kevin Durant combining for 60 points on 31 shot attempts, there wasn't a need for Thompson to be overly involved. He was efficient with the shots he did take, however, continuing his excellent stretch from the field with a sixth straight game of better than 50 percent shooting. Thompson also has drained multiple threes in 18 consecutive contests, and is averaging a monthly-best 27.4 points in February on the strength of respective 53.4 and 53.9 percent success rates from the field and behind the arc.
Stephen Curry Headshot

Curry posted 35 points (10-16 FG, 6-10 3Pt, 9-10 FT), seven rebounds, five assists and four steals over 32 minutes in Thursday's 123-113 win over the Clippers.

Added 9:15 am (EST)
Curry was in vintage form Thursday, easily outpacing all other scorers in the contest and posting his best shooting percentages from both the field and three-point range since Feb. 1. The All-Star was highly aggressive throughout, with his 10 visits to the charity stripe representing his highest total since Nov. 28. Curry's offensive contributions have uncharacteristically fluctuated in February to the tune of four sub-20-point performances, but his upside, as evidenced by Thursday's effort, clearly remains sky-high in all formats.
Raymond Felton Headshot

Felton provided 13 points (4-7 FG, 1-2 3Pt, 4-4 FT), five assists, three rebounds and three steals over 24 minutes in Thursday's 123-113 loss to the Warriors.

Added 9:10 am (EST)
Felton got the second half off to a strong start, posting double digits in the scoring colum for the second consecutive game and shooting at least 57 percent for the third time in the last four contests. The veteran swingman has now notched at least 21 minutes in 10 straight contests, but could see his playing time take a hit as early as Friday night's tilt against the Spurs if Chris Paul (thumb) makes his return.
J.J. Redick Headshot

Redick poured in 12 points (4-10 FG, 2-6 3Pt, 2-2 FT) and added two rebounds, one assist and two steals over 30 minutes in Thursday's 123-113 loss to the Warriors.

Added 9:04 am (EST)
The veteran sharpshooter played a reasonably effective complementary role, draining multiple threes for the fifth straight game in the process. Redick has posted double-digit scoring in seven of his last nine games, but he's actually regressed during Chris Paul's absence with a thumb injury. The 32-year-old is now averaging a modest 12.3 points on just 35.9 percent shooting in February, with the latter figure serving as his worst monthly figure in that category.
Blake Griffin Headshot

Griffin supplied just 12 points (3-13 FG, 1-2 3Pt, 5-9 FT), eight assists, five rebounds and one steal over 35 minutes in Thursday's 123-113 loss to the Warriors.

Added 8:59 am (EST)
With his shots failing to find the net more often than not Thursday, Griffin turned into the top ball distributor on the Clippers, and has now dished out at least eight dimes in three of the last four games overall. However, his scoring total was his lowest in nine February games, and equaled his poorest showing in that category since his return to action on Jan. 24. Given that he'd shot 40 percent or better in nine straight contests prior to Thursday, the seven-year pro is likely to bounce back against the Spurs in the Clippers' next tilt Friday night.
DeAndre Jordan Headshot

Jordan managed 17 points (6-12 FG, 5-8 FT), 11 rebounds, three assists and one steal over 31 minutes in Thursday's 123-113 loss to the Warriors.

Added 8:53 am (EST)
The nine-year veteran posted his second-best scoring total of February, taking double-digit shot attempts for only the second time during the month as well. Jordan continued to clean up on the glass as well, hauling in double-digit boards for the seventh time in the last eight contests. Although February has seen him score in single digits in seven of 10 games, Jordan continues to provide excellent returns in the rebounding category (13.1) during the month.
