The Sixers announced that Embiid’s younger brother Arthur died Thursday in Africa. No additional information was immediately available. Sixers general manager Sam Hinkie, coach Brett Brown and teammate Luc Mbah a Moute, a fellow Camaroon native who has been Embiid’s mentor, missed Thursday night’s preseason game against the Celtics to be with the 20-year-old Embiid in Philadelphia. “We’re all a family here,” said Sixers assistant Chad Iske, who coached the team in Brown’s absence. “Obviously, everybody’s thinking about Joel at this time. You feel for him so much.” Guard Elliot Williams has a sense of what Embiid is experiencing, since his mother died in April 2013. “That’s a tough thing losing somebody so close,” Williams said. “I know it’s tough for him being so young and so sudden.” “It’s very sad,” said forward Hollis Thompson. “It just puts everything in perspective. At the end of the day, we’re playing a game. This is real life out here.” Embiid has a younger sister, Muriel. The Sixers made Embiid, a 7-footer, the No. 3 overall pick in June’s draft after he spent one year at Kansas. Embiid underwent surgery for a foot stress fracture June 20 and could miss the entire season. “It’s definitely a tough situation,” said Tony Wroten. “My prayers go out to Jo-Jo and his family.” Sixers falter With Nerlens Noel (upper respiratory infection) out and Michael Carter-Williams (shoulder surgery) still not ready, the Sixers started Wroten, Williams, Thompson, Brandon Davies and Henry Sims. Not surprisingly, the Sixers, who are 1-4, dropped a 111-91 decision at the Wells Fargo Center in which they trailed 20-5 and were never competitive. They had more turnovers (22) than assists (20) and allowed Boston to go 15-for-37 (40.5 percent) from 3-point range. “We were trying to sprint back so much (on defense) because of our turnovers and bad execution at the other end that I don’t think we ever got set,” Iske said. “They took advantage of every open look they got.” Noel, who missed Friday’s road loss to the Timberwolves with a sore thigh, hopes to be back for Saturday evening’s game at the PPL Center in Allentown against the Magic. Sixers rookie Ronald Roberts Jr. from St. Joseph’s sat out his second straight game with a left quad strain. Rookie second-round pick Jerami Grant (ankle) remains sidelined. Turner returns Former Sixer Evan Turner, now playing for the Celtics, was asked beforehand what kind of response he expected from the crowd. “I don’t know,” he said. “I want to see how many people show up. Who doesn’t like joining in on a good boo if it’s happening?” The Philly fans greeted the former No. 2 overall selection with mix of cheers and boos when he was introduced. He finished with six points, 10 assists and eight turnovers.网上博彩
