With Love now on the sideline for this weekend's All-Star Game -- and expected to miss six weeks following surgery on his left knee Tuesday, according to ESPN's Dave McMenamin -- someone must replace him in the Eastern Conference lineup.
Who should it be? Kristaps Porzingis has a case to make. What about Hassan Whiteside? The 27-year-old leads the NBA in rebounds per game (14.1). You can't forget about Detroit Pistons center Andre Drummond either.
Who's your pick?
Sixers general manager Bryan Colangelo told reporters last Saturday that Embiid is unlikely to play in the Rising Stars Challenge this weekend, but nothing has been officially confirmed yet.
NBA All-Star Weekend is Feb. 17-19.
