Embiid tallied 21 points (6-18 FG, 1-6 3Pt, 8-9 FT), 11 rebounds, four assists, and three blocks in 45 minutes during Sunday's 92-90 loss to the Raptors. Embiid was devastated Sunday after the 76ers fell agonizingly short of advancing to the Eastern Conference Finals. It took a Kawhi Leonard buzzer-beater to send the 76ers home in what was a fascinating series. Embiid has battled illness throughout the last week or so but will certainly make no excuses for their playoff exit. Looking forward, the 76ers have a number of decisions to make regarding the future of the franchise. Embiid is unlikely to see any change in his role but the injury tag is likely to hang over his head for at least another season.
Embiid compiled 17 points (5-14 FG, 2-3 3Pt, 5-7 FT), 12 rebounds, two blocks, one assist, and one steal in 36 minutes during Thursday's 112-101 Game 6 win over the Raptors. Embiid struggled with turnovers (five) once again but was clearly a factor on both ends in this one. With two full days of rest on the horizon heading into Sunday's Game 7, Embiid has ample time to rest and recover in advance of the biggest game of his career.
Embiid had 13 points (5-10 FG, 2-6 3Pt, 1-2 FT), six rebounds, one assist, one steal, and one block in 31 minutes during Tuesday's 125-89 Game 5 loss to the Raptors. Embiid played through an illness and struggled badly on offense, committing eight turnovers. He hasn't been himself in these last two games, this after dominating during last Thursday's Game 3 victory. Raptors' center Marc Gasol has consistently given Embiid trouble, and It will be another quick turnaround for the star big man as the 76ers look to avoid elimination in Thursday's Game 6.
Embiid (illness) will play Tuesday's Game 5 against the Raptors, Serena Winters of NBC Sports Philadelphia reports. Embiid was able to participate in parts of pre-game warmups as he continues to deal with an illness, so he's likely to be less than 100 percent. The 25-year-old is coming off a tough Game 4 in which he scored only 11 points on 2-of-7 shooting.
Embiid (illness) did not participate in shootaround and is considered probable for Tuesday's Game 5 against the Raptors, Josh Lewenberg of TSN reports. The big man has dealt with a variety of ailments throughout Round 2, and he's still battling the illness that limited him to just 11 points on 2-of-7 shooting in the Sixers' Game 4 loss. Prior to that, Embiid erupted for a huge Game 3, but given that he missed shootaround Tuesday morning, he'll likely be at less than 100 percent as the series shifts back to Toronto. Nonetheless, the "probable" tag implies that he's not in much danger of missing the game outright.
