PHILADELPHIA, PENNSYLVANIA - MARCH 03: Joel Embiid #21 of the Philadelphia 76ers reacts after scoring during the first quarter against the Utah Jazz at Wells Fargo Center on March 03, 2021 in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.

There is no structural damage in Embiid’s left knee, per ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski and Ramona Shelburne. The injury is being called a bone bruise.

Embiid left Friday night’s game vs the Wizards after taking a fall. He never returned, and the only news on the injury after the game was that Embiid would get an MRI when the team returned to Philly. The test returned good results after many feared the worst. Sixers have not yet set a time table for return.


According to Shams Charania the timeline for return will be 2 to 3 weeks.
