Embiid (undisclosed) went to the locker room in the second half and did not return to the game during Thursday's 124-117 loss Milwaukee, Justin Garcia of Courtside Live reports.
The team did not announce any injuries for Embiid and likely opted to keep his workload light in the second half of a back-to-back. Justin Grasso of SI.com reports that the team had planned to manage Embiid's minutes for Thursday's game. The game was not as close as the final scoreline indicated, with the Bucks holding a big lead for most of the game. Across 27 minutes, he had posted 24 points (9-21 FG, 0-4 3Pt, 6-7 FT), three rebounds, three assists and one block. Embiid should be available for Saturday's rematch against the Bucks.
Embiid (rest) is not listed on the injury report for Thursday's game against Milwaukee.
It had previously been reported that Philadelphia would consider resting Embiid in the second half of the back-to-back after he played 33 minutes in Wednesday's loss to Phoenix, but it looks like he'll be available in his usual starting role. The MVP candidate is posting ridiculous averages of 35.4 points, 12.8 rebounds, 3.4 assists, 1.8 triples, 0.8 steals and 0.8 blocks per game over his last five outings.
Embiid accumulated 38 points (14-23 FG, 3-5 3Pt, 7-9 FT), 17 rebounds, four assists, one block and one steal over 33 minutes in Wednesday's 116-113 loss to the Suns.
Despite some uncertainty about his status heading into the contest -- the first of a back-to-back set -- Embiid ended up suiting and turned in a massive stat line. With three of the Sixers' normal starters missing, Embiid attempted 20-plus shots for the fourth game in a row and accounted for a full third of the team's scoring. His 17 rebounds were the most he's grabbed during the month of April, and his nine offensive rebounds tied a career high. The 76ers could consider resting Embiid on Thursday in Milwaukee, though the center said after Wednesday's contest that he expects to play against the Bucks, according to Kyle Neubeck of PhillyVoice.com. The coaching and training staffs will likely check back in with Embiid closer to Thursday's 7 p.m. ET tipoff before making a formal decision on his status for the game.
Embiid (rest) will play Wednesday against the Suns, Justin Grasso of SI.com reports.
Embiid was a candidate to be rested on the front end of the back-to-back set, but he'll end up playing. Over his past eight appearances, he's averaged 29.9 points, 10.0 rebounds, 2.6 assists and 1.6 blocks in 30.9 minutes.
Embiid (knee) is questionable for Wednesday's matchup against the Suns.
The Sixers labeled it "recovery" on their injury report, and Embiid could be rested on the front end of their Wednesday-Thursday back-to-back set. If he's out, more minutes would be available for Dwight Howard and Mike Scott.
Embiid dropped 28 points (8-21 FG, 1-3 3Pt, 11-14 FT), 13 rebounds, eight assists, one block and one steal across 32 minutes Monday in the 107-96 loss to the Warriors.
While Embiid's 30-point streak came to an end at three games, his double-double streak was extended to three games. The MVP contender is the only player in the NBA to attempt, and make, double-digit free throws per game and is among the top three in free throw percentage among centers. Embiid's eight assists were the most he's had in a game since he dished out nine dimes back on Feb. 17.
Embiid dropped 36 points (10-20 FG, 0-3 3Pt, 16-18 FT), 14 rebounds, one assist and one steal over 36 minutes during Friday's victory over the Nets.
Embiid has made a living at the charity stripe over his last three games, going a combined 40-for-44. During that span, Embiid has accounted for 32.5 percent of Philly's point total. He's also posted consecutive double-doubles for the first time since Feb. 27 - March 3.

Embiid struggled early on with DeAndre Jordan but quickly turned things around in the second quarter, getting his counterpart into foul trouble. He's now posted consecutive 30-point performances for the first time since he did so in four straight games from Feb. 11-19. Though injuries could potentially cost Embiid the MVP award this season, there's no denying his ability when he's on the court, as he posts dominating numbers on a nightly basis. He's currently sitting on career highs in points per game (29.8), shooting percentage (51.6), three-point percentage (38.9) and free-throw percentage (85.3).
Embiid totaled 36 points (10-17 FG, 2-3 3Pt, 14-15 FT), seven rebounds, two assists and a steal in 26 minutes during Monday's 113-95 victory over the Mavericks.
With Philadelphia rolling to a comfortable victory, Embiid didn't have to play major minutes, but he still managed to delight fantasy managers with another stellar line. He dropped all of his 36 points in three quarters, getting nearly half of his offense from the charity stripe. Embiid has now managed to get to the free-throw line 15 or more times on three separate occasions this month.
Embiid tallied 27 points (10-17 FG, 0-2 3Pt, 7-9), nine rebounds, four assists and four blocks in 27 minutes during Saturday's 117-93 win over the Thunder.
The 27-year-old bounced back from Friday's 14-point effort to post 27 points in 27 minutes. Embiid also swatted four shots, giving him 13 games in a row with at least one block. The fifth-year center has now played three games in a row, including a back-to-back set, which bodes well for his rest-of-season availability. Embiid should play all the minutes he can handle the rest of the way with the 76ers only 1.0 games behind the Nets for the No. 1 seed in the Eastern Conference.
Embiid (knee) is available for Saturday's matchup against the Thunder.
Despite awkwardly landing on his knee Friday, Embiid will play during the second half of the back-to-back set Saturday. Across his past three appearances, he's averaged 24.3 points, 7.7 rebounds, 2.0 blocks and 1.3 assists in 31.0 minutes.

Coach Doc Rivers said that the plan was to play Embiid in the second half of a back-to-back set Saturday, but the team will now wait before determining his status against Oklahoma City. If Embiid is held out Saturday, Dwight Howard and Mike Scott could see increased run for Philadelphia.
Embiid scored 35 points (9-19 FG, 1-5 3Pt, 16-20 FT) to go along with six rebounds, one assist and one block across 33 minutes in Tuesday's win over the Celtics.
Embiid reached the free-throw line at least 20 times for the second time this season, and used that as his primary method of scoring. He struggled from deep but otherwise shot well from the field. While the rest of his line wasn't particularly impressive, it was encouraging to see Embiid reach a relatively full minutes workload after missing 12 of the team's last 15 games with a knee injury.
Embiid (injury recovery) is not listed on the injury report for Tuesday's game against Boston.
Embiid was held out Sunday on the second half of a back-to-back after he had returned Saturday from a 10-game absence. The All-Star center should be in line for his regular workload on Tuesday, which means Dwight Howard and Mike Scott would see their workloads decreased.

The team will understandably be cautious with Embiid after he returned Saturday from a 10-game absence due to a left knee bruise. The 27-year-old center looked like his usual self in his return, posting 24 points and eight boards across 28 minutes. If Embiid is held out for Sunday's game, Dwight Howard and Mike Scott would likely be looking at increased roles.
Embiid (knee) tallied 24 points (6-14 FG, 0-4 3Pt, 12-17 FT), eight rebounds, three blocks and two assists in 28 minutes during Saturday's 122-113 win over the Timberwolves.
Embiid didn't miss a beat in his return to the starting lineup after missing 10 games due to a left knee bruise. Though the 76ers managed his minutes more carefully than normal, Embiid was a force on the offensive end, albeit with poorer free-throw shooting than usual. Embiid could have his minutes monitored carefully again for the second half of the back-to-back set Sunday versus Memphis, but he shouldn't have any restrictions heading into the upcoming week.
Embiid (knee) will play and start Saturday against the Timberwolves, Noah Levick of NBC Sports Philadelphia reports.

According to Shams Charania of The Athletic, Embiid is expected to retake the court Saturday at Minnesota rather than waiting for the second half of the back-to-back set Sunday versus Memphis. The 76ers plan to provide a formal update on his status Friday.
