76ers’ Isaiah Joe Enters NBA Health and Safety Protocols

The Philadelphia 76ers have been hit by a wave of absences, and on Thursday, another name was added to the list.

On Thursday afternoon, ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski reported that Isaiah Joe had entered the NBA’s health and safety protocols and would be unavailable for the 76ers’ game against the Detroit Pistons on Thursday night. Wojnarowski also says that the entire 76ers team would be tested prior to their Thursday night game against the Detroit Pistons.

Joe joined fellow 76er Tobias Harris, who has also been placed in health and safety protocols.

To return from health and safety protocols, players have two options: they can either wait for 10 days after a testing positive or “onset symptoms” or pass consecutive negative PCR tests that are 24 hours apart.

Joe is in his second season out of the University of Arkansas and has played sparingly so far for the 76ers. So far this season, he’s suited up for seven games and averaged 7.7 minutes and 2.0 points per game.
