The latest injury reports Joel Embiid



Injury status: Active

UPDATE (May. 14):

Joel Embiid is active for Game 7 on Sunday between 76ers vs. Celtics.

UPDATE (May. 11):

Joel Embiid (knee) is questionable for Thursday’s Game 6 versus Boston.

Embiid has appeared in four straight games after missing back-to-back contests due to a knee sprain, so it’d be surprising if he took a seat for the critical Game 6 matchup.

The MVP has scored at least 30 points in three straight games, averaging 32.3 points, 11.0 rebounds, 3.3 assists and 2.7 blocks in 40.7 minutes during that stretch.

UPDATE (May. 09):

Joel Embiid (knee) is questionable for Game 5 on Tuesday.

Embiid missed two games earlier in the postseason due to a persistent knee ailment, but he’s played in the last three, averaging 26.3 points, 9.7 rebounds, and 2.3 assists in 37.3 minutes per game.

With the series tied 2-2, Embiid might return to the lineup on Tuesday.

UPDATE (May. 07):

Due to a right knee strain, Joel Embiid is questionable for Game 4 on Sunday.

Embiid missed Game 1 of the series due to a knee ailment, but he has participated in the following two. The MVP center played 39 minutes in Game 2 and did not appear limited, so unless he has a relapse, he will most likely play on Sunday.

UPDATE (May. 05):

Joel Embiid is questionable for Game 3 on Friday.

After missing the previous two games due to a knee injury, Embiid played 27 minutes in Wednesday’s blowout loss. The MVP center’s involvement in practice, on the other hand, is a favorable indicator for his availability on Friday.

UPDATE (May. 03):

Embiid (knee) is still considered iffy for Wednesday’s Game 2 in Boston, but the MVP candidate might be upgraded if he responds well to Tuesday’s workout, according to Noah Levick of NBC Sports Philadelphia.

Due to a knee sprain, Embiid missed the series-clinching Game 4 triumph against Brooklyn and remained out of Monday’s Game 1 victory in Boston, but he’s doing everything he can to get back on the field and aid his team.

He performed some light shooting before Monday’s game and will do a skeleton workout on Tuesday, and how he reacts to both activities will determine his availability moving forward.

As the second game approaches, keep a watch on Embiid’s status. With a win in game one and Embiid playing on a grade two knee sprain, the Sixers may want to rest him one more game.

UPDATE (May. 01):

According to ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski, Embiid (knee) is officially labeled as doubtful for Monday’s Game 1.

After sitting out the final game of the first-round series against the Nets with a sprained right knee, Embiid is also not scheduled to play in Game 1.

There are major doubts about how many games Embiid will be able to play this season, and he is questionable for Monday night’s start. It could be problematic on both ends of the court if the NBA’s MVP favorite isn’t at the helm.

UPDATE (Apr. 24):

Doc Rivers said that Joel Embiid (knee) has a “50 percent, at best” chance of being able to play at the start of the Eastern Conference Semifinals.

With a damaged right knee, Embiid missed the 76ers’ series-clinching win over the Nets. Though the organization was initially optimistic that Embiid would be ready for the hypothetical Game 5 against the Nets on Monday, Rivers’ comments on Saturday were more negative.

Embiid, on the other hand, will have at least a week to recover from his knee injury before the second round begins. If he is forced to miss further time, Paul Reed will likely continue to start in his place.
