Joel Embiid News

Joel Embiid    C  76ers

 

 

Joel Embiid (ankle) finished his first All-Star game with 19 points on 8-of-13 shooting, two 3-pointers, eight rebounds and two blocks. Embiid missed Philly's final game before the break due to swelling in his right ankle, and he admitted that he wasn't feeling "so good" during Friday's Rising Stars game. He added one steal and one assist in just 20 minutes tonight, and moved well while he was on the court, so we anticipate him being ready to roll vs. Chicago on Feb 22.

Joel Embiid said his ankle is feeling better and that he's aiming to be the MVP during Sunday's All-Star Game. "On Sunday, I expect to go harder," Embiid said after playing just eight minutes in the Rising Stars game Friday. "I’m going for that MVP. Guys better make sure they find me because I’m looking to have a good game." He admitted that his ankle "didn't feel so good" on Friday, but he's doing better and his fantasy owners and 76ers fans are just hoping he comes out of this game healthy.

Joel Embiid said he is going to participate in all three of his events this weekend. That means he'll be out there for the All-Star Game, the Rising Stars event and Skills Challenge. He'll be starting with fellow 76ers Dario Saric and Ben Simmons for the World team tonight, and he'll be taking part in one event over each of the next three days. Embiid did not play on Wednesday due to swelling, so it's nice to see this is only a precaution.

Coach Brett Brown said swelling in Joel Embiid's ankle from Monday's game against the Knicks was why he was held out on Wednesday. That's a little discouraging that he had swelling a couple days after a game, but at least it's not related to his knee or foot. Hopefully, the All-Star break will allow enough time for Embiid to get his foot in good shape again.

Joel Embiid (ankle) will not play against the Heat on Wednesday. This is a small surprise with Embiid not playing against his trash-talking counterpart, Hassan Whiteside. Embiid has been playing in back-to-back sets now, but he's been on the injury report for basically every game these days. He'll get some extra time off to recover over the All-Star break. Amir Johnson, Trevor Booker and Richaun Holmes should play more.

Joel Embiid (ankle) will be a game-time call for Wednesday's matchup with the Heat. This is the last game for Philly before the All-Star break, and considering he played in the previous two games despite being listed as questionable, it seems like he has a decent shot of getting out there with some rest ahead of him. Check back closer to tip-off for official confirmation on his status.

Joel Embiid scored 29 points with 16 rebounds, two assists, one steal, three blocks and and one 3-pointer in 34 minutes against the Clippers during a 112-98 win on Saturday. It was a scary game for Embiid with several bumps and bruises. Embiid had to go to the locker room, but he was able to return. He was also asked about it after the game and didn't sound too concerned. He said his knee took contact from the floor and it didn't twist, and he said he knew he was going to check back in after the quick trip. Embiid also said he didn't get treatment and that he wasn't nervous about coming back. He should be ready to roll, but don't be surprised to see him on the injury report as a precaution. Trust The Process.

Joel Embiid (ankle) will play against the Clippers on Saturday. Despite being on the injury report in each of the last two games, The Process will play in his second back-to-back set. He torched Anthony Davis on Friday and he'll get another tough matchup against DeAndre Jordan. Embiid will probably be launching some triples tonight.
