Top Joel Embiid News

  • 76ers' Joel Embiid: Comes up short in Game 6

    Embiid posted 20 points (7-24 FG, 2-8 3Pt, 4-4 FT), 12 rebounds, two assists and one block over 44 minutes during Thursday's 99-90 loss to Miami in Game 6 of the Eastern Conference Semifinals.

    The performance wasn't enough to keep the 76ers' season alive, as the Heat advanced to the Eastern Conference Finals after the win. Embiid posted eight double-doubles in 10 playoff games this year, averaging 23.6 points, 10.7 boards, 2.1 assists and 0.8 blocks despite playing through torn ligaments in his thumb and an orbital bone fracture.

  • 76ers' Joel Embiid: Playing in Game 6

    Embiid (face) will play in Thursday's Game 6 against the Heat, Tim Bontemps of ESPN.com reports.

    As expected, Embiid will continue to power through his orbital fracture and torn thumb ligament that sidelined him for the first two games of the series. Since returning, he's averaged 19.7 points, 9.0 rebounds and 1.7 assists in 35.7 minutes.

  • 76ers' Joel Embiid: Modest production in blowout loss

    Embiid recorded 17 points (7-12 FG, 0-1 3Pt, 3-3 FT), five rebounds, two assists and one steal across 33 minutes during Tuesday's 120-85 loss to Miami.

    Embiid has attempted 13 or fewer field goals in all three contests since returning from a two-game absence due to a concussion and orbital fracture. The MVP candidate attempted a career-high 19.6 field goals per game during the regular season, so it's curious why he's been so passive during the series, though it's worth noting he is wearing a full face shield. Miami's defense also deserves credit, but Embiid is shooting 51.4 percent from the field, so it's not like he's being suffocated. Regardless, the biggest difference in Embiid's box score from Tuesday's loss compared to the two previous wins was the lack of free-throw attempts. Embiid will need to be aggressive in Game 6 if the 76ers hope to avoid elimination.

  • 76ers' Joel Embiid: Listed questionable again

    Embiid (face) is listed as questionable for Thursday's Game 6 against Miami.

    All indications are that Embiid will continue to play through the orbital fracture -- and torn ligament in his thumb -- that sidelined him for the first two games of the series. Nonetheless, the Sixers will list him questionable for the fourth straight game. Embiid, who took another shot to the face in Game 5, finished the 120-85 blowout loss with just 17 points, five rebounds and two assists in 33 minutes.

  • 76ers' Joel Embiid: Good to go for Game 5

    Embiid (orbital/thumb) is available and will start Tuesday's Game 5 against the Heat.

    As expected, Embiid will remain in the lineup for Tuesday's Game 5 as the 76ers look to win a third straight contest against Miami. Over the last two games, the MVP candidate has averaged 21 points and 11 rebounds across 37 minutes per contest.

  • 76ers' Joel Embiid: Listed as questionable

    Embiid (orbital/thumb) is officially listed as questionable for Tuesday's Game 5 against the Heat.

    Embiid missed the first two games of the series after suffering a concussion and orbital fracture during the opening-round series against the Raptors. However, the MVP candidate returned for the next two contests in Philadelphia and helped the 76ers to back-to-back wins. While he's listed as questionable, it'll likely take a major setback for Embiid not to suit up for Game 5.

  • 76ers' Joel Embiid: Double-doubles in Game 4 win

    Embiid contributed 24 points (7-13 FG, 1-3 3Pt, 9-13 FT), 11 rebounds, two assists and one block across 38 minutes during Sunday's 116-108 win over the Heat in Game 4 of the Eastern Conference Semifinals series.

    After missing the first two games of the series while in the concussion protocol and recovering from an orbital fracture, Embiid hasn't been in top form in his two contests since returning, but his presence has been enough for the 76ers to even the series. He's handled full workloads in both of his first two games back, and as he becomes more comfortable playing through the orbital fracture and a torn thumb ligament, he could show improved efficiency.
