Embiid is dealing with left knee soreness and will be re-evaluated in one week, Shams Charania of The Athletic reports. An MRI revealed no structural damage.
Embiid seems to have avoided a significant injury, but he'll need to go through physical therapy and load management to get back to his usual self. More information should arrive once he's re-evaluated, but there's a chance the big man will be out longer than a week. In the meantime, Boban Marjanovic, Amir Johnson and Jonah Bolden figure to hold down the center position.
Embiid produced 12 points (4-12 FG, 0-3 3Pt, 2-4 FT), 12 rebounds, one assist, one steal and one block over 23 minutes in Team Giannis' loss to Team LeBron in the 2019 NBA All-Star Game.
Embiid crashed the glass, leading all rebounders in the All-Star Game. He's the second-leading rebounder in the NBA with 13.5 this season. Embiid will try to push the 76ers higher up the standings - they currently sit at the five-seed with a 37-21 record which is only 1.0 games back of the the three-seed.
Embiid scored a game-high 26 points (7-13 FG, 12-14 FT) while adding 14 rebounds, three assists and a block in 34 minutes during Wednesday's 126-111 win over the Knicks.
The center racked up his 10th straight double-double, and Embiid is averaging 28.6 points, 14.8 boards, 3.0 assists, 1.9 blocks and 1.1 three-pointers over that impressive stretch. He's also become one of the most dominant fantasy assets in the league from the free-throw line, attempting 11.6 FTs a night while converting 85.3 percent of them during those 10 games.
Embiid accumulated 23 points (9-22 FG, 2-8 3Pt, 3-4 FT), 14 rebounds, three assists and two blocks across 37 minutes Tuesday against Boston.
Although Embiid led the scoring charge for the 76ers, he struggled shooting the ball in what was a tough matchup with Al Horford. The fifth-year center continues to expand his game in his third full season of play, and is now producing a career-high 27.4 points, 13.5 rebounds, 3.5 assists and 2.0 blocks in 33.7 minutes per game. It appears that Embiid will be unaffected by the addition of Tobias Harris as the all-star center's averaging 25.0 points in the three games since Harris' acquisition.
Embiid contributed 37 points (12-16 FG, 2-3 3Pt, 11-12 FT), 14 rebounds, three assists, and one steal in 32 minutes during Sunday's 143-120 win over the Lakers.
Embiid played through an illness for the second straight game and bounced back in a big way following Friday's subpar showing. It's rare that Embiid doesn't record a single block, but fantasy owners can't complain on a night when he produces in every other category and barely misses any of the shots he throws up. Assuming he is good to go for Tuesday's matchup with the Celtics, expect Embiid to remain as aggressive as always against a team that has had Philadelphia's number over the last two seasons.
