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. 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.
Embiid delivered another monster performance on Thursday to fuel the 76ers to a win and a 2-1 series lead on the Raptors. Embiid has only played 26.5 minutes this postseason due to knee and illness issues, though his play in that limited court time has been phenomenal. Consider him a nightly double-double threat with huge upside for blocks, making him an elite daily play at center.
Embiid provided 12 points (2-7 FG, 0-3 3Pt, 8-8 FT), six rebounds, five assists, and one block in 32 minutes during Monday's 94-89 Game 2 win over the Raptors.
Embiid had been listed as a game-time decision due to an illness but was ultimately able to give it a go. Despite scoring a key basket in the final minute it was just a decent showing overall, as Embiid finished with more turnovers (six) than assists while providing a modest stat line. Still, with the series tied at one game apiece, Embiid will look to get back on track during Thursday's Game 3.
