Embiid totaled 31 points (11-21 FG, 2-5 3Pt, 7-10 FT), 11 rebounds, three assists, one steal and one block in 41 minutes during Sunday's 103-96 loss to the Hawks in Game 7 of the Eastern Conference semifinals series.
Embiid did everything he could in the loss but was unable to get his team over the hump, once again. Another positive season comes to an end for the 76ers and based on what we have seen over the past couple of years, it could be time to make some changes in Philadelphia. Embiid's future seems guaranteed at this point, so it is likely to be the role players -- or perhaps Ben Simmons -- who could be flushed out. Injuries also continue to be an issue for the big man, who battled a partially torn meniscus for the duration of the second round. While his production is unassailable, longevity is a question that may hang around for the remainder of Embiid's career.
Embiid (knee) will be available for Sunday's Game 7 against Atlanta, John Clark of NBC Sports Philly reports.
The big man is technically listed as questionable on the injury report, but his status has never truly been in doubt as the Sixers head into an ultra-important elimination game. Embiid has played through a small tear in his meniscus throughout the series, and while he's showed signs of fatigue, at times, he's mostly looked like himself, averaging 30.3 points, 13.0 rebounds, 4.0 assists, 1.0 steal and 2.2 blocks through the first six games. In Game 5, Embiid went for 37 points, 13 boards, five assists and four blocks before posting 22 points, 13 rebounds and two blocks (with eight turnovers) in Friday's Game 6 victory.
Embiid (knee) is questionable for Sunday's Game 7 against the Hawks.
Embiid continues to be questionable due to his small lateral meniscus tear, but it would be shocking if he didn't play in the do-or-die Game 7. Over the past three games, he's averaged 25.3 points, 15.7 rebounds, 3.3 assists and 2.0 blocks in 37.7 minutes. However, he's shot just 39.1 percent from the field.
Embiid finished with 22 points (9-24 FG, 1-4 3Pt, 3-4 FT), 13 rebounds, two blocks and an assist across 38 minutes in Friday's win over the Hawks.
Embiid has recorded three straight double-doubles and has accomplished that feat in four of the six games of the series, while also scoring at least 20 points on five different occasions. The impact Embiid has on both ends of the court is huge for the Sixers, and Philadelphia needs him to have a big Game 7 if the Sixers want to advance to the next round. Considering Embiid is averaging 30.3 points, 13.0 rebounds, 4.0 assists and 2.2 blocks per game in the series, he could be in line to carry the Sixers on Sunday.
Embiid (knee) is starting Game 6 against Atlanta on Friday.
Embiid was questionable once again heading into Friday's matchup, but he'll continue to play through his knee injury as the 76ers attempt to stave off elimination in Game 6. The 27-year-old has averaged 32.0 points, 13.0 rebounds and 4.6 assists in 36.4 minutes per game across the first five contests in the series.
Embiid (knee) is listed as questionable for Game 6 against Atlanta on Friday.
Embiid has been listed as questionable for every game so far in this series, but he hasn't had to miss any time so far. Outside of a rough outing in Game 4, the center seemingly hasn't been impacted by his small meniscus tear, as he's averaging 32.0 points on 48.0 percent shooting, 13.0 rebounds, 4.6 assists and 2.2 blocks per game so far in the series.
Embiid notched 37 points (12-20 FG, 2-4 3Pt, 11-13 FT), 13 rebounds, five assists, four blocks and two steals across 39 minutes in Wednesday's loss against the Hawks.
Embiid was coming off a woeful performance in Game 4, going 4-for-20 from the field and going 0-for-12 in the second half, but he bounced back here and was one of two Philadelphia players that recorded more than 35 points. The star big man has scored 37 or more points in three of the five games during the current series, and while Atlanta has been extremely focused on slowing him down, Embiid continues to be a key figure on offense for the 76ers and an excellent play across all fantasy formats.
Embiid (knee) is available and starting in Wednesday's Game 5 against the Hawks.
Embiid was once again listed as questionable, but it's no surprise he'll continue playing through the knee injury. The 27-year-old will attempt to get back on track after struggling in Game 4 with 17 points (4-20 FG, 1-4 3Pt, 8-8 FT), 21 rebounds and four assists in 36 minutes
Embiid (knee) is questionable for Wednesday's Game 5 against the Hawks, Kevin Chouinard of the Hawks' official site reports.
Embiid continues to be listed as questionable ahead of every game. He struggled mightily in Game 4, going just 4-for-20 from the field, including 1-for-4 from deep. However, he was still able to grab 21 rebounds and dish four assists. It would be surprising if he sat out Wednesday.
Embiid notched 17 points (4-20 FG, 1-4 3Pt, 8-8 FT), 21 rebounds and four assists across 36 minutes in Monday's loss against the Hawks.
Embiid went 0-for-12 from the field in the second half and was unable to carry the Sixers when the Hawks mounted a huge comeback, but the fact that he still pulled down 21 rebounds salvaged his fantasy performance. Even though the star big man was coming off three straight games with at least 27 points in the series, there's no question the Sixers need more out of him if they want to advance to the Eastern Conference Semifinals. Expect Embiid to try and come out with a more aggressive mindset in Game 5 to be played at Philadelphia on Wednesday.
Embiid (knee) will play in Game 4 against Atlanta on Monday, Justin Grasso of SI.com reports.
Embiid will continue to be available in the series despite a small meniscus tear. He's scored at least 35 points in three of his last five games.
Embiid (knee) is questionable for Monday's Game 4 against Atlanta.
Embiid has been dealing with a small meniscus tear, but he's been able to play through the injury during the first three games of the series. The 27-year-old has averaged 35.3 points, 10.3 rebounds and 4.7 assists in 35.7 minutes per game across his last three appearances. While his injury has still been a concern, his performance hasn't dropped off to begin the second round.

Embiid not only paced the Sixers in scoring, but he also ended just one rebound and two assists shy of completing a triple-double. The star big man has scored 22 or more points in all but one of his playoff appearances this season, and he's also scored at least 35 points in four of their last five postseason contests.
Embiid (knee) is available for Friday's Game 3 against the Hawks, Brad Rowland of PeachtreeHoops.com reports.
Embiid will continue to play through a knee injury. It hasn't hindered him so far this series, as he has produced 39.5 points on 54.3 percent shooting to go along with 11.0 rebounds, 3.0 assists, 1.5 triples and 1.5 steals through two games. While the injury remains a concern, look for him to take on his usual workload assuming he avoids any type of setback.
Embiid (knee) is listed as questionable for Game 3 against Atlanta on Friday.
Embiid has been lights out to start the series, but he continues to pop up on the injury report due to the partially torn meniscus in his right knee. Based on the first two games, it's very likely that the All-Star center will play in Game 3, considering he's averaging 39.5 points on 54.3 percent shooting, 11.0 rebounds, 3.0 assists, 2.0 blocks, 1.5 triples and 1.5 steals per game. The injury remains somewhat of a concern, but it certainly hasn't appeared to bother him as much as many anticipated.
Embiid recorded 40 points (13-25 FG, 2-5 3Pt, 12-16 FT), 13 rebounds, two assists, two steals and a block across 35 minutes in Tuesday's win over the Hawks.
Embiid was a game-time call for the second game of the series and once again thrived, carrying the Sixers to a massive win in front of a rowdy home crowd. The star big man only lasted 11 minutes in Game 4 of the first-round series against the Wizards due to a partially torn meniscus that still has him a bit limited, but his numbers against the Hawks certainly don't reflect that. In 73 total minutes, Embiid has racked up 79 points, 22 rebounds, six assists, four blocks and three steals.
Embiid (knee) will play in Tuesday's Game 2 against the Hawks.
Embiid was, unsurprisingly, a game-time call with his small meniscus tear, but he'll end up playing. He was effective in Game 1 despite the loss, as he posted 39 points, nine rebounds, four assists, three blocks and one steal in 38 minutes.
Embiid (knee) is a game-time decision for Tuesday's Game 2 against the Hawks, though coach Doc Rivers is optimistic the center will play, Justin Grasso of SI.com reports.
The 27-year-old was also considered a game-time call for Game 1 before putting up 39 points (12-21 FG, 1-3 3Pt, 14-15 FT), nine rebounds, four assists, three blocks and a steal in 38 minutes. Embiid should be on the court for Game 2 unless things don't go as planned in warmups.
Embiid (knee) is questionable for Tuesday's Game 2 against Atlanta.
Embiid was able to play through his injury in Sunday's Game 1 and neared a double-double with 39 points and nine rebounds in 38 minutes. However, he's still dealing with his knee issue ahead of Tuesday's matchup. If the 27-year-old is held out, Dwight Howard and Mike Scott could see increased run.
Embiid delivered 39 points (12-21 FG, 1-3 3Pt, 14-15 FT), nine rebounds, four assists, three blocks and a steal across 38 minutes in Sunday's 128-124 loss to the Hawks in Game 1 of the Eastern Conference semifinals series.
Embiid missed Game 5 of the first-round series against the Wizards, and while there were concerns about how much he could handle in terms of his workload, he erased those concerns as soon as he stepped on the hardwood and delivered his third 30-point game of the current playoff run. The star big man is averaging 27.0 points per tilt in the postseason and should remain the Sixers' go-to player on offense as long as he's able to remain healthy -- which is always a big "if" when it comes to him, especially considering he already picked up an injury in the previous series.
