The New York Knicks are fresh off a big win over the Magic and want to carry that same energy to their back-to-back games against the Sixers. New York is the No. 4 team in the East with a 37-26 record, half a game ahead of Orlando and 3.5 games back from Milwaukee. Since Joel Embiid's injury, Philadelphia has slipped to No. 7 with a 35-28 record.

Both teams are dealing with injuries to key players. OG Anunoby is close to returning for the Knicks, but he's still out. Julius Randle and Mitchell Robinson are progressing but are still sidelined. The Sixers have been without Embiid since he hurt an already troubled knee on Jan. 30. He's been doing on-court workouts for a week and is expected to return before the end of the season, but his return won't come in the next two games against New York.

Tyrese Maxey has missed the past week because he's in concussion protocol. The Sixers are on a three-game losing streak without him, and hopefully, that streak will continue on Sunday.
