NBA: Atlanta Hawks at Philadelphia 76ers James Lang-USA TODAY Sports

The Atlanta Hawks kick off a second round playoff series versus the Philadelphia 76ers on Sunday afternoon. Easily the biggest mystery of the series is the injury status of the Sixers All-Star center and leading scorer Joel Embiid.

His availability for Game 1 is unknown at this point and may not be clear until just before the game tips off on Sunday. Further, his status for the entire series is uncertain.

Thus I wanted to provide a brief look at what Philadelphia runs when Embiid and back up center Dwight Howard are both off the court, with Ben Simmons operating as the 5.

Volume up.
