Insider Reveals Latest

Joel Embiid

want to leave due to too much Injury

Joel Embiid, the NBA’s reigning regular-season MVP, is putting up monster numbers once again, and he has made himself a legitimate candidate to win the award again this season.

76ers' Joel Embiid out against Jazz with swelling in left knee

However, he missed the Philadelphia 76ers’ last game versus the Utah Jazz with knee swelling, and he also missed their contest on Wednesday against the Atlanta Hawks.

Per Keith Pompey, Sixers head coach Nick Nurse says the team is taking things day to day with Embiid and that they hope he will be able to return on Friday when they play the Sacramento Kings.

Embiid is currently leading the NBA in scoring with 34.6 points a game, and he’s also putting up 11.8 rebounds, 6.0 assists, and 2.0 blocked shots per contest.

Thanks largely to him, the Sixers are in third place in the Eastern Conference with a 23-12 record.

However, if they’re without Embiid, who has a history of knee problems, for more than another game or two, they could very well fall in the standings.

The New York Knicks, who are in fourth place with a 22-15 record, have a five-game winning streak thanks to the acquisition of OG Anunoby, and the Miami Heat (21-15) are always a threat to leapfrog at least one team ahead of them.

After Wednesday, Philly will have a three-game homestand, but after that seven of their next eight games will be on the road

To have any real chance of challenging the Boston Celtics and Milwaukee Bucks come playoff time, they will need Embiid to get well soon and continue his dominance.
