Handing Out Grades For Every Sixers Player At The All-Star Break

The NBA All-Star break is upon us. Meaning the Sixers get some much-needed rest. The season kind of imploded after such a promising start. Joel Embiid is out for several weeks with a meniscus injury. Tobias Harris, Nico Batum, Robert Covington, and DeAnthony Melton have all missed time. And they are still waiting for Kyle Lowry to be able to officially join the team. The All-Star Break couldn't come at a better time for them. Before the Embiid injury, this season looked like it might be their best chance yet. Joel Embiid was playing the best basketball of his career. Tyrese Maxey blossomed into a Star. Nick Nurse had the team functioning like a well-oiled machine, with elite production on both ends of the floor. But the Embiid injury, along with all the other issues, derailed it completely. They fell from the 3 seed to the 5 seed. They are now 3-9 in their last 12 games. But getting reinforcements at the trade deadline did help. Since Buddy Hield and Cam Payne joined the team, they are 2-2. That is despite them dealing with several other injuries and Nick Nurse having to play with a patchwork lineup. The All-Star break is also a good time for us to review what we know about this team. Who has stepped up this season? Which players need to do better in the 2nd half? Are we under or overrating anyone on the roster? Can the guys currently on it keep them afloat until Embiid returns? So while the Sixers get their much-needed rest, apart from Tyrese Maxey who is in the All-Star Game, let's hand out some grades to the Sixers players. From Joel Embiid and Tyrese Maxey, down to the guys at the end of the Sixers bench. Here is the grade for every Sixers player heading into the All-Star Break:
