Joel Embiid 'may not' play on Thursday

18 April, 2018, 00:26 | Author: Sherri Guerrero
  • Center Joel Embiid will be a spectator once again when the 76ers take on the Miami Heat Monday night in Game 2 of the NBA Eastern conference playoff series. Embiid was ruled out by head coach Brett Brown Sunday. The 76ers lead the series 1-0

Wade is no longer the player he once was - the relentless 24-year-old who captured Finals MVP honors in 2006, the dynamic 28-year-old who led the National Basketball Association in scoring before LeBron James' arrival in Miami, the proud 31-year-old who fought through injury to win a third title with the Heat or even the fading 34-year-old All-Star - but he can still be effective. Embiid fractured his orbital bone and suffered a concussion during the collision.Publicly, Embiid has worn various protective masks during shootaround - which he'll likely have to wear when/if he returns to game action as a preventative measure - and even labeled himself the "Phantom of the Process". Game 3 of the Eastern Conference playoff series tips off at 7 p.m. Thursday at AmericanAirlines Area.

Philadelphia's 17-game winning streak was snapped.

The All-Star centre has been sidelined since March 28 and took to social after Game 2 to show his frustration at not yet being cleared to play.

"He wants to play in front of the fans", Sixers coach Brett Brown told reporters. "But we'll learn more over the next 48 hours I suspect".

ESPN's Ramona Shelburne asked Wade after the game what inspired his performance. He wants to be with his team. That success has allowed the team to be patient and try to wait for him to get healthy rather than rush him back.

With the Heat now taking the upper hand in the matchup, the 76ers will hope that they can call on the services of their leading scorer soon and boost their chances of making it to the second round.
