Joel Embiid Could Miss The First Playoff Game For 76ers

Joel Embiid's always lingering injury concern has struck at the worst time for the Philadelphia 76ers star. (25) during the second half of an NBA basketball game Saturday, April 6, 2019, in Chicago.

A lot has been made about the Philadelphia 76ers starting unit playing only 10 games together heading into the playoffs, but thte team went 8-2 during those 10 games and beat some pretty elite teams.

The 7-footer missed five of the Sixers' final seven games due to left knee soreness, an issue he has been experiencing since the All-Star break.

Embiid is one of the game's dominant forces when healthy, averaging 27.5 points, 13.6 rebounds.

The third seed in the East, the 76ers will face the sixth-seeded Brooklyn Nets in the first round of the playoffs.

"We'll adjust if he doesn't play", Atkinson said.

Julian Assange arrested after Ecuador withdraws political asylum
Assange has always insisted that the Swedish case was simply a cover for him to be handed over to USA justice officials. After losing an appeal, he took refuge in Ecuador's embassy in June 2012 to avoid being extradited.

"I expect our starters to be available", Brown said.

After being eliminated in the second round last season, the general manager would consider anything short of advancing past the second round this year as an unsuccessful season. Brand, however, said "it's possible" he won't play. "We didn't have the weapons (last year) we have this year".

Boylen isn't concerned about his reputation.

Chicago: Walt Lemon Jr. scored 20 points to lead the Bulls. Before that, he played in a loss to Milwaukee and a win against Chicago.

Like most teams, the Sixers have gone through their fair share of struggles at times throughout the regular season, but hopefully Brown will have this team ready for the start of this series against the Nets, which will officially begin on Saturday. The 76ers promoted Lindsey Harding from scout to player development coach. They closed the season losing eight of nine, finishing 22-60.
