Predictions

The Milwaukee Bucks are coming off of a great win against the 76ers and have a fit squad compared to that of the 76ers. The Sixers, meanwhile, are still missing Ben Simmons. With a fitter squad and an in-form team, the Bucks clearly have an edge over Philly in this matchup.

Philadelphia 76ers injury updates and lineup prediction

The 76ers are clearly missing their superstar playmaker, Ben Simmons. Without a lock down defender and playmaker like Simmons missing from the team, the 76ers have lost all their three games with their latest loss coming at the hands of the Bucks 124-117.

The 76ers might miss some key players through injuries. Starting point guard Ben Simmons is out due to illness. Both backup guard Furkan Korkmaz and talisman Joel Embiid are also questionable.

The 76ers will look to exact revenge against the Bucks this time around. But other players around Embiid will have to step up if they want to do the same.
