Joel Embiid vs. Cody Zeller: Embiid has distinguished himself as the elite player in this rookie class.
▪ The Hornets have won six consecutive games in this series. This is their only trip to Philadelphia this season.
▪ One of the 76ers’ few strengths this season is depth, as they average 39.4 bench points, fifth-most in the NBA.
▪ Center Cody Zeller said Thursday he should be fine to play Friday after missing the Rockets’ game with an illness.
▪ Hornets shooting guard Nic Batum (hyper-extended right knee) practiced Thursday and is hopeful he can play against the 76ers.
