UPDATE: The 76’re lost against the Knicks last night. I think that’s going to be the first of many losses while Embiid is out. This is not good for 76’ers fans. Managing minutes is an awful trend.
Is Joel Embiid Playing Tonight? No.
If Joel Embiid Out? Yes.
Why isn’t Joel Embiid playing? That’s a great question.
Apparently, it was planned for Joel Embiid to miss tonight’s second game of a back-to-back to give him some rest in hopes to prevent season fatigue and injury. But now it’s being reported that Joel Embiid is going to miss significant time for the leaders of the Eastern Conference, the Philadelphia 76’ers.
What will this mean for the 76’ers, arguably the hottest team in the NBA right now. Not only is Philadelphia missing Ben Simmons, but now they will be without star Center Joel Embiid.
Joel Embiid has had a history of injuries throughout his career. Many are speculating there is an underlying issue, a serious injury, that the organization is trying to cover-up.
