Embiid doubts for the fifth game without giving details about his knee

Joel Embiid’s physical condition is anyone’s guess, although the Philadelphia 76ers remain optimistic on his chances of returning sooner rather than later to Doc Rivers’ team lineup. The Cameroonian pivot, essential in the Sixers’ scheme, damaged his right knee in the fourth match of the tie against the Washington Wizards, whose team lost 122-114.

The interior left the meeting in the first quarter after falling badly to the ground in a play with Robin López and back and knee pain. Diagnostic tests
ruled out any serious injury, but the franchise has determined that Embiid will be doubtful for the fifth game of the series, which the Sixers dominate 3-1.

According to Adrian Wojnarowski, lEmbiid’s recovery prospects are goodAlthough it will not be until tonight, before the game, when the Sixers will decide on their participation in the game.

Despite the reviews and positive attitude of the franchise, there were no specific details about knee problems that affect Embiid, described as “annoyances” in the medical part of the team.
