76ers set for No. 1 draft picks Simmons, Fultz to make debut

PHILADELPHIA (AP) Joel Embiid braided his hair for a fashion statement and got his basketball shorts in a bunch over his latest minutes restriction on opening night.

Embiid styled his hair like former Philadelphia 76ers great Allen Iverson and was as outspoken as him, too, using some profanities describe coach Brett Brown's decision to confine his minutes to the teens in the opener Wednesday against the Washington Wizards.

Embiid's career has been defined by injuries and limited minutes in the games he's been healthy enough to play. Brown often started his press briefings last season with the magic number of minutes that Embiid, the 7-foot center, could play. Eight months after minor surgery to repair the meniscus tear in his left knee, Embiid still isn't ready to go 25, 30, heck, even 20, minutes in his first regular-season game since January.
