Embiid tallied 30 points (8-18 FG, 1-5 3Pt, 13-18 FT), 10 rebounds, three steals and two blocks in 37 minutes during Sunday's 110-106 Game 4 loss to the Celtics. Embiid was at the top of his game in this series, averaging 30.0 points and 12.3 rebounds, but it wasn't enough with Ben Simmons (kneecap) out of action, and the Sixers' season is now over following the first-round sweep. There's no questioning Embiid's talent -- he's one of the best big men in the game -- but his durability remains a concern for fantasy players and the Sixers alike. He's never played in more than 64 regular-season games in his career; this year, he played in 51 of the Sixers' 73 regular-season contests.
Embiid went for 30 points (7-20 FG, 2-5 3Pt, 14-16 FT), 13 rebounds, an assist, a steal and a block in 35 minutes during Friday's 102-94 Game 3 loss against the Celtics. Embiid has double-doubled in all three games of the series, but at times it's felt like he's been alone out there against the red-hot Celtics. The star big man is averaging 30.0 points and 13.0 rebounds in the playoffs, although he's shooting an uncharacteristically modest 46.4 percent from the field.
Embiid went off for 34 points (11-21 FG, 0-2 3Pt, 12-13 FT), 10 rebounds, three assists and a block in 34 minutes during Wednesday's 128-101 Game 2 loss against the Celtics. Embiid has notched back-to-back double-doubles to open the postseason. Although his team wasn't able to win either of those contests, Embiid is at the top of his game and will remain the focal point of the Sixers' offense with Ben Simmons (kneecap) sidelined for the foreseeable future.
Embiid went for 26 points (8-15 FG, 1-4 3Pt, 9-12 FT), 16 rebounds, two steals, one assist and one block in 38 minutes during Monday's 109-101 Game 1 loss against the Celtics. Embiid carried the Sixers on both ends of the court, but his efforts were not enough to pull off an upset in the series opener. The uber-talented big man's usage rate should remain quite high ahead of Wednesday's Game 2 as the Sixers compensate for the absence of Ben Simmons (kneecap).
Embiid (ankle) will start at center in Friday's regular-season finale against the Rockets, Serena Winters of NBC Sports Philadelphia reports. The 76ers are already locked into a playoff matchup with the Celtics, so it is a little surprising they are letting Embiid play with an ankle issue. However, they presumably just want him to stay in his normal routine. The most likely situation is that he will start the game but ultimately see a light workload.
