Oct. 20 2:17 PM PT3:17 PM MT4:17 PM CT5:17 PM ET21:17 GMT5:17 2:17 PM MST4:17 PM EST1:17 UAE (+1)23:1717:17 ET4:17 PM CTNaN:� - Though he will play Friday against Boston, Embiid (rest) will sit out Saturday's game against the Raptors.
Analysis: Embiid says he has not been cleared to play both games of a back-to-back. Fortunately for his fantasy owners, the 76ers don't have another one until the final two days of November.
Oct. 20 6:46 PM PT7:46 PM MT8:46 PM CT9:46 PM ET1:46 GMT9:46 6:46 PM MST8:46 PM EST5:46 UAE (+1)03:4621:46 ET8:46 PM CTNaN:� - Joel Embiid scored 11 points Friday, going 4 of 16 from the field, as the Philadelphia 76ers lost to the Boston Celtics 102-92. Embiid grabbed 14 rebounds and had three assists, accumulating a plus-minus of -4 in his 28:02 on the floor. He added two blocks and one steal. Embiid struggled from 3-point range, coming up empty on all six of his attempts.
Analysis: Embiid has yet to be cleared to play on consecutive days due to previous issues with his left knee and his right foot, so he'll sit out Saturday's game at Toronto. The standout young center missed his first two NBA seasons recovering from foot surgeries, and the Sixers have plenty invested in him. He signed a five-year, $148 million extension during the preseason.
Oct. 18 6:34 PM PT7:34 PM MT8:34 PM CT9:34 PM ET1:34 GMT9:34 6:34 PM MST8:34 PM EST5:34 UAE (+1)03:3421:34 ET8:34 PM CTNaN:� - Joel Embiid scored 18 points Wednesday on 7-of-15 shooting as the Philadelphia 76ers lost to the Washington Wizards 120-115. Embiid pulled down 13 rebounds and had three assists, accumulating a plus-minus of +1 in his 26:57 on the floor. He added one block.
Analysis: Sixers coach Brett Brown denied that Embiid was on a strict minutes restriction of 16 minutes, and with good reason. Embiid played 26:57 and notched his 10th double-double in 32 career games. Philly plays back-to-back games on Friday and Saturday, so it will be interesting to see how much Embiid plays in those.
Oct. 9 2:33 PM PT3:33 PM MT4:33 PM CT5:33 PM ET21:33 GMT5:33 2:33 PM MST4:33 PM EST1:33 UAE (+1)23:3317:33 ET4:33 PM CTNaN:� - A person familiar with the situation tells The Associated Press the Philadelphia 76ers and Embiid have agreed on a maximum contract extension. The person spoke on condition of anonymity Monday because the contract has not been officially announced. The person said Embiid and the Sixers have agreed on a $148 million, five-year extension and it could reach even more if the 7-foot center reaches certain incentives.
Analysis: Embiid's career has been riddled with injuries dating to his college career at Kansas and all three seasons with the Sixers. Embiid, the No. 3 overall pick in the 2014 draft, played only 31 games last season and had surgery in March to repair a torn meniscus in his knee. He was only recently cleared to participate in 5-on-5 drills but the Sixers must feel confident enough in his health to offer him the max deal.
Oct. 5 2:15 PM PT3:15 PM MT4:15 PM CT5:15 PM ET21:15 GMT5:15 2:15 PM MST4:15 PM EST1:15 UAE (+1)23:1517:15 ET4:15 PM CTNaN:� - Embiid was cleared for 5-on-5 drills and participated in a full practice with the Philadelphia 76ers for the first time Thursday.
Analysis: Embiid sat out Philadelphia's preseason opener on Wednesday and won't play against Boston on Friday. The Sixers are hopeful Embiid will be in the lineup on opening night.
Sep. 26 5:37 PM PT6:37 PM MT7:37 PM CT8:37 PM ET0:37 GMT8:37 5:37 PM MST7:37 PM EST4:37 UAE (+1)02:3720:37 ET7:37 PM CTNaN:� - Embiid, who's recovering from arthroscopic surgery on his left knee performed in March, will not participate in 5-on-5 work when the 76ers open training camp.
Analysis: The good news is that Embiid will still take part in some drills and activity and the 76ers expect him to be ready for the Oct. 18 season opener. The injury-plagued center will be a fantasy factor whenever he's healthy and on the court, but owners should still count on the team monitoring his minutes throughout the season.
July 8 2:08 PM PT3:08 PM MT4:08 PM CT5:08 PM ET21:08 GMT5:08 2:08 PM MST4:08 PM EST1:08 UAE (+1)23:0817:08 ET4:08 PM CTNaN:� - Embiid was fined $10,000 by the NBA on Saturday for directing an obscenity at LaVar Ball, the father of Los Angeles Lakers rookie Lonzo Ball, on social media.
Analysis: Embiid directed the obscenity at Lavar Ball in an Instagram Live video this this week. Earlier, Embiid tweeted about LaVar and Lonzo Ball to 76ers teammate Ben Simmons, saying: ''Please dunk on him so hard that his daddy runs on the court to save him.''
