In the third quarter with the Sixers leading the Wizards 80-60 Joel Embiid landed VERY awkwardly on his left knee following a dunk. The video is tough to watch

It’s worth noting Embiid walked off the court on his own power, but was doing so with a noticeable limp. He left the game with a 23 points and 7 rebounds and was well on his way to another dominant performance. According to the Sixers Embiid is out with a hyperextension of his knee. Embiid will get an MRI.
