76ers coach Brett Brown wants to play Joel Embiid 20-24 minutes per game in regular season
The 76ers will predictably limit Joel Embiid’s minutes season.
Just how strict will they be?
Jessica Camerato of CSN Philly:

It won’t make it much easier to juggle a big-man rotation that also includes Nerlens Noel, Jahlil Okafor, Richaun Holmes and Dario Saric and even Jerami Grant and Robert Covington getting minutes at power forward. Simmons’ absence doesn’t solve the dilemma, either.
But that’s Brown’s problem. If Embiid plays well in his minutes, no matter how many, everything gets much easier for Philadelphia.
