76ers star ruled out of Game 2 against Heat

76ers star ruled out of Game 2 against Heat

He recently cleared the National Basketball Association concussion protocol.

Philadelphia 76ers All-Star center Joel Embiid has cleared the NBA's concussion protocol, but he will not play against Miami in Monday's playoff game, the team announced Sunday.

"Joel Embiid (orbital bone fracture, left eye) is out for tomorrow night's game vs. Miami".

Brown said the Sixers' dominant Game 1 win Saturday did not factor in the team's decision to sit Embiid for Game 2. So we got a pretty good chance for Game 2 or Game 3.

When Embiid does return, it is expected that he will wear a protective mask after doing so during shootarounds. Other than a handful of games, he's been the best player on the court. I've been able to do everything.

Simmons almost finished his first game in the postseason with a triple-double, finishing with 17 points, 14 assists and nine rebounds.

And if they take a commanding 2-0 series lead while potentially getting him back for Game 3? "We gonna see how it feels in the next couple of days". The third seed in the East torched their conference rival by 27 points, 130-103, as Ben Simmons almost marked a triple-double in his first playoff game.

Philadelphia has handled Embiid's absence well.

The Sixers, who set an National Basketball Association record with 16 straight wins to end the season, got the rout in full swing with a raucous crowd behind them.

Toronto entered having lost an NBA-worst 10 consecutive Game 1s since, including six at home.
