Sixers' Joel Embiid: Recent usage as stretch-5 'really frustrates me'

Friday night’s victory against the Detroit Pistons pushed the Philadelphia 76ers’ record to 18-9, good for second place in the NBA’s Eastern Conference.

But not every Sixers player is pleased with his role.

Joel Embiid, who missed his first game of the season Friday due to rest, told reporters that he feels like his offense has taken a hit since the team acquired All-Star Jimmy Butler in the blockbuster trade with the Minnesota Timberwolves last month.

“I haven’t been myself lately,” Embiid told Philly.com. “I think it’s mainly because of the way I’ve been used, which is I’m being used as a spacer, I guess, a stretch-5, which I’m only shooting [29] percent” from 3-point range.
