The Sixers got a bit of good news on Thursday. While Joel Embiid will be out for a week to recover from a shoulder sprain, an MRI revealed “no structural damage”.

Philly’s Big Man collided with the Cavs’ Ante Zizic during the first quarter of Wednesday’s matchup and didn’t return.

According to coach Brett Brown, the team will re-evaluate his condition next week.

Ben Simmons is also out, dealing with a nerve impingement in his lower back that will likely keep him benched for at least two weeks.
