Joel Embiid has returned to the Philadelphia 76ers' lineup, starting Game 4 against the Brooklyn Nets. Embiid missed Game 3 and went into Saturday listed as doubtful due to continued left knee soreness.

The 76ers won Game 3 going away without him, splitting center minutes between Greg Monroe and Boban Marjanovic. That pair combined for 23 points and 21 rebounds in the 131-115 victory.

Still, the Sixers are at their best when Embiid plays. The team had a net rating of 11.3 points per 100 possessions better with the All-Star on the floor this season. He put up 23 points and 10 rebounds and was a plus-26 in Philly's Game 2 win.
