The Philadelphia 76ers lead the Eastern Conference but many of their key players are either injured or ill and will not play against the Milwaukee Bucks on Tuesday.

Joel Embiid did not play in their 103-96 loss to the New York Knicks on Monday after he tested positive for Covid-19. Tobias Harris, Isaiah Joe and Matisse Thybulle are also absent due to Covid-19 protocols while Ben Simmons is still not playing this season for personal reasons. Their loss to the Knicks snapped the Sixers' six-game winning streak.

Andre Drummond led the Sixers (8-3) in their last game with 14 points and 25 rebounds. Head coach Doc Rivers also expects Seth Curry, Tyrese Maxey and Furkan Korkmaz to step up in this game.

Like the Sixers, some Milwaukee players also have health problems. Khris Middleton, Brook Lopez and Donte DiVincenzo will continue to miss out because of injury or illness.

The Bucks (4-6) kicked off their five-game trip with a 101-94 loss at Washington last Sunday. This is the second straight loss and fifth defeat of the defending champions in their last six games.

Giannis Antetokounmpo will again lead Milwaukee after scoring 29 points and 18 rebounds against the Wizards. Grayson Allen (19 points) and Bobby Portis (13 points, 13 rebounds) also played well in their last game.

The Bucks swept their three meetings against the Sixers last regular season and they have won five in a row in the series.

Verdict

Both the Bucks and Sixers have injury or illness issues but we are backing Milwaukee to triumph in the City of Brotherly Love.
