As the hours tick away towards tonight key Game 3 in Miami, Sixers coach Brett Brown provided an update on big man Joel Embiid today at the Sixers shoot around.

"He remains doubtful," Brown told reporters today in South Beach. "He went through stuff yesterday that was decent.

Brown was asked today what he needs to see in order to play him tonight.

"Its a collaborative thing with Joel, Doctors and me," Brown said. "Its all the stuff that revolves around comfort, we're responsible for his health."

Brown added that Embiid has had a little bit of contact and that he was trying to get used to wearing the mask.
