Joel Embiid Doubtful for Game 3 in Miami
One of the biggest questions around the Sixers before tomorrow's Game 3 with the Miami heat is - will Joel Embiid be ready to play.
Well, the team has announced he is doubtful for the game, as he recovers from the orbital bone fracture, suffered back on March 28 against the Knicks. He had surgery back on March 31.
Embiid did do some light work at practice today, making seven 3-pointers in a row.
Even though he has cleared the concussion protocol and even done some light work at practice, it might not be enough to get him back on the court tomorrow night for Game 3. The 76ers should have another update at shootaround tomorrow.
Game 4 would be Saturday afternoon in Miami, the series is currently tied 1-1.
Listen to Sixers vs Heat, Game 3 on 97.3 ESPN, coverage begins at 7pm.
