76ers' Joel Embiid: Scores 30, snags 14 boards
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Embiid (shoulder) delivered 30 points (9-17 FG, 2-3 3Pt, 10-12 FT), 14 rebounds, three assists and one steal in 27 minutes during Wednesday's 124-106 win over the Pistons.

Embiid returned to the lineup after a five-game absence with a left shoulder strain and was dominant even in fairly limited minutes. He has scored 30-plus in three of his last five appearances.

76ers' Joel Embiid: Ready to return Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Embiid (shoulder) is available for Wednesday's against the Pistons, Justin Grasso of SI.com reports.

The 25-year-old missed the last five games with the left shoulder sprain, but he's good to return to game action versus Detroit. Embiid figures to rejoin the starting lineup, though it's unclear if he'll face any sort of minutes restriction.

76ers' Joel Embiid: Questionable Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Embiid is questionable for Wednesday's game against the Pistons.

Embiid was available to practice, but he is yet to be completely cleared to play. Mike Scott is likely to see another start if the All-Star is not ready to return. In that case, his next chance to return would be on Saturday against the Pacers.

76ers' Joel Embiid: Cleared to practice
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Embiid (shoulder) has been cleared to practice, Justin Grasso of Sports Illustrated reports.

This is certainly a step in the right direction for Embiid, but the Sixers are yet to decide if he'll be cleared to play in Wednesday's home matchup against Detroit. Either way, though, Embiid figures to be back in the lineup within the next few days after missing the previous five contests with a sprained left shoulder. After Wednesday's game, the Sixers are off until a Saturday date with the Pacers.

76ers' Joel Embiid: Won't play Saturday vs. Warriors
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Embiid (shoulder) has resumed on-court basketball activities, but he won't play Saturday against the Warriors and is set to be re-evaluated Monday, Keith Pompey of The Philadelphia Inquirer reports.

Embiid will miss his fifth straight contest Saturday as the 76ers' medical staff continues to monitor his sprained left shoulder. His next opportunity to take the court arrives Wednesday against the Pistons.

76ers' Joel Embiid: Out again Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Embiid (shoulder) has been ruled out for Thursday's game against the Kings

The team said last Thursday that Embiid would be re-evaluated in one week, so it's not overly surprising to see him sitting out in Sacramento. The 25-year-old continues to recover from the left shoulder sprain and should have his status updated within the next couple of days.

76ers' Joel Embiid: Out at least one week
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Embiid (shoulder) will be re-evaluated in one week, Shams Charania of The Athletic reports.

Embiid suffered a left shoulder strain in Wednesday's matchup with the Cavs, and while the team has since determined that the big man avoided any structural damage, he'll be forced to sit down for at least one week before getting checked out again. The All-Star center will miss two more contests before his next evaluation.

76ers' Joel Embiid: Won't play Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Embiid (shoulder) is out for Thursday's game against the Knicks, and more evaluation of his injury is ongoing, Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN reports.

Embiid suffered a sprained left shoulder during Wednesday's matchup against the Cavaliers, and it isn't too much of a surprise that he's sitting out on the second half of a back-to-back set. Considering the medical staff is still doing evaluations, it's unclear when Embiid may be able to return. For the time being, he should be considered day-to-day. With both him and Ben Simmons (back) sidelined, Al Horford, Josh Richardson and Tobias Harris will be the primary offensive options. Shake Milton and Alec Burks should handle the ball plenty as well.

76ers' Joel Embiid: Heading for MRI
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Embiid will undergo an MRI on his left shoulder Thursday, Keith Pompey of The Philadelphia Inquirer reports.

Embiid was unable to return after suffering a left shoulder sprain during the first quarter of Wednesday's loss to the Cavaliers, and the severity of the injury could be determined Thursday. The 25-year-old hasn't been officially ruled out, but he seems unlikely to be available for the second half of the back-to-back set versus the Knicks given the quick turnaround.

February 27, 2020 08:28 AM
76ers' Joel Embiid: Won't return Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Embiid was diagnosed with a left shoulder sprain and will not return to Wednesday's game against the Cavaliers, Keith Pompey of The Philadelphia Inquirer reports.

Embiid suffered the injury with a minute to go in the first quarter and immediately looked to be in pain. After shooting his free throws, the big man retreated to the locker room with a trainer, where he was ruled out following further evaluation. While the severity of the issue is not yet known, it wouldn't be surprising if Embiid was forced to at least miss the second half of Philadelphia's back-to-back set Thursday vs. the Knicks.

76ers' Joel Embiid: Explodes for career-high 49
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Embiid recorded 49 points (17-24 FG, 1-3 3Pt, 14-15 FT), 14 rebounds, three assists, three steals and a block across 36 minutes in Monday's 129-112 win over the Hawks.

With Ben Simmons (back) out, Embiid took over the offense and erupted in the win. The 49 points are a new career high for the center and this was his eighth double-double in his last 10 games. Simmons is expected to miss an extended period of time, and Embiid should garner a massive usage rate until the point guard can return. He and the Sixers will face a soft Cavaliers defense Wednesday.

76ers' Joel Embiid: Second straight double-double
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Embiid posted 17 points (5-18 FG, 1-2 3Pt, 6-7 FT), 11 rebounds, four assists, one steal and one block in 29 minutes during Saturday's 119-98 loss at Milwaukee.

Embiid was Philadelphia's main offensive threat once Ben Simmons left the contest with a back injury, but the former couldn't take advantage of that role and delivered a rather pedestrian line by his standards. He has back-to-back double-doubles and six in his last seven games, though. In the event Simmons is forced to miss an extended period of time, that could translate to an uptick in Embiid's numbers across the board.

76ers' Joel Embiid: Booms for 39
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Embiid exploded for 39 points (10-20 FG, 1-1 3Pt, 18-19 FT), 16 rebounds, two assists, two steals and two blocks during Philadelphia's 112-104 win over the Nets on Thursday.

Embiid was in stride after logging nearly 30 minutes in the epic duel that was the 2020 All-Star Game. His 39 points marked a season-high. In an interesting subplot, the Sixers were booed off the court by their own fans after a 16-point second quarter. Luckily for the 76ers and fantasy owners alike, Embiid is fueled by boos (an ongoing saga) and proceeded to pour in second half points. He was excellent from the charity stripe and got a vital block on Wilson Chandler to force overtime. Any lingering hand pain is seemingly behind Embiid.

76ers' Joel Embiid: Ditches splint, using tape
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Embiid will no longer wear a splint on his left hand during games, opting for tape instead, Kyle Neubeck of PhillyVoice.com reports.

Since coming back from a torn ligament in his left hand Jan. 28, Embiid has sported a splint for some extra support. He's apparently feeling some improvements, so he'll go with a lighter option. Since his return, he's averaging 21.0 points, 10.4 rebounds, 2.9 assists and 1.4 blocks.

76ers' Joel Embiid: Double-doubles in All-Star Game
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Embiid totaled 22 points (8-13 FG, 0-2 3Pt, 6-8 FT), 10 rebounds and one assist in 29 minutes during Sunday's 157-155 All-Star Game loss to Team LeBron.

Embiid was one of four players on the Team Giannis squad to record a double-double. There were plenty of rebounds to go around in what was a highly offensive-minded game. Despite the All-Star nod, Embiid has been difficult to own at times in fantasy because he's missed 16 of the Sixers' 55 games. However, he's shown good health recently, giving his fantasy owners hope that the star center can stay on the court for the stretch run.

76ers' Joel Embiid: Hits for 26 against Clips
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Embiid scored 26 points (8-17 FG, 2-5 3Pt, 8-13 FT) while adding nine rebounds, two assists and a block in 28 minutes during Tuesday's 110-103 win over the Clippers.

While his double-double streak ended at four games, Embiid still had a productive evening, tying Ben Simmons for the team lead in scoring. Over eight games since returning from a finger injury, the 25-year-old center is averaging 21.0 points, 10.4 boards, 2.9 assists, 1.6 threes and 1.4 blocks.

76ers' Joel Embiid: Not sporting brace
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Embiid was no longer sporting a brace on his left hand in Monday's practice, Ky Carlin of USA Today reports.

Since returning from an extended absence due to a finger injury on Jan. 28, Embiid had played with a brace on his left hand. While it didn't appear to hinder his on-court abilities, losing the brace could be a sign that Embiid's hand is back to full strength. If that's the case, there's a good chance that the star center's efficiency could tick up over the coming weeks.

76ers' Joel Embiid: Dominant display versus Bulls
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Embiid ended up with 28 points (8-17 FG, 1-3 3Pt, 11-14 FT), 12 rebounds, five assists, four blocks and three steals in 31 minutes during Sunday's 118-111 win over the Bulls.

Embiid was cleared to play after having been listed as questionable earlier in the day due to neck tightness. Embiid contributed across every category and put together one of his more well-rounded stat lines of the season. He'll look to build on this effort heading into Tuesday's tilt against the Clippers.

76ers' Joel Embiid: Cleared for Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Embiid (neck) will be available for Sunday's game against the Bulls, Derek Bodner of The Athletic reports.

The star center played only 16 minutes in Friday's 119-107 win over the Grizzlies before exiting with tightness, though he still managed to record a double-double (10 points, 10 rebounds) to go with three assists, two steals and one block. After appearing as questionable on the 76ers' injury report Saturday, Embiid apparently erased any concern about his health after the 76ers' medical staff evaluated him early Sunday. Expect him to start and take on a normal minutes load versus Chicago.

76ers' Joel Embiid: Questionable for Sunday's contest
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Embiid is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Bulls due to a stiff neck, Marc Narducci of the Philadelphia Inquirer reports.

Embiid didn't play in the second half of Friday's game against the Grizzlies due to the issue. With Al Horford (Achilles) also questionable and Kyle O'Quinn (personal) out, the Sixers may be left with only Norvel Pelle as a traditional center.
