The Philadelphia 76ers are preparing to take on the Atlanta Hawks in the second round of the playoffs, starting Sunday with Game 1 at home. The team is trying to do it possibly without their stellar big man in Joel Embiid, who suffered an injury in Game 4 against the Washington Wizards.
The big man left the game with what the team called right knee pain, and after undergoing some tests, it was found that the big man had a small lateral meniscus tear in his right knee. He is included in the list of daily as the team is determined for the 2nd round.
On the other hand, there was a thought that maybe he had suffered the injury before the 4th game and that it just went unnoticed until that night in DC
“It was an injury in Game 4,”
As for what he managed to do in practice on the Saturday before game 1 on Sunday, Rivers again said that the big man just went through some separate things and nothing live. He did the same on Friday.
“Same thing,” Rivers said. “He did a little on the floor, not live, I can say today. He just did what he could. “
Game 1 is Sunday at 1 p.m. EDT with the Hawks of Wells Fargo Center.
