Are Joel Embiid and Karl-Anthony Towns playing tonight? 76ers vs. Timberwolves time, TV channel and live stream

When the 76ers and Timberwolves face off, it’s usually a matchup between two of the most skilled big men in the league.

Timberwolves superstar Karl-Anthony Towns and 76ers MVP candidate Joel Embiid have had their fair share of battles in the past. The two bigs were both ejected for a fight during a matchup back in 2019 and things got physical again when they faced off in 2021.

However, they won’t have the opportunity to face off this time around.

Towns has been sidelined since Nov. 30 with a right calf strain, keeping him out of this highly anticipated matchup against 76ers MVP candidate Joel Embiid.

Towns has only appeared in 21 games this season, averaging 20.8 points, 8.2 rebounds and 5.3 assists per game. Embiid, on the other hand, has been a monster for Philadelphia. The six-time All-Star is averaging 33.0 points, 10.3 rebounds, 4.1 assists, 1.6 blocks and 1.1 steals over 50 games.

Will he be available for Tuesday’s meeting with the Timberwolves? The Sporting News has you covered with the latest information below.


Are Joel Embiid and Karl-Anthony Towns playing tonight?

The 76ers have not yet released their injury report, but Embiid was available for Monday’s game against the Pacers. Unless he sits out the second night of a back-to-back for precautionary measures — which he did against the Heat last week — Embiid is expected to play against the Timberwolves.

Towns, on the other hand, has already been ruled out for Tuesday’s game. Towns has not appeared in a game since Nov. 30 due to a right calf strain.
