Prior to traveling to Atlanta, Joel Embiid and Ben Simmons had contact with an individual who is confirmed to have tested positive for COVID-19. 

As a result, Embiid (Team Durant) and Simmons (Team LeBron) will not play in tonight’s NBA All-Star Game.

Participation for other All-Stars and members of the 76ers coaching staff in Atlanta is not affected because they were not exposed to the individual in Philadelphia.
