Joel Embiid will not play in game 5. The center, who left game 4, went through an MRI that revealed a small meniscus tear in his right knee according to the team. The injury will not require surgery, and Embiid will attempt to rehab with physical therapy. He is listed as day to day. Woj broke it down for everyone out there who isnt a doctor.
Managing potential swelling and pain on the knee will play a significant part in how soon Embiid returns to the floor. Team says "the injury will be managed with a physical therapy and treatment program." https://t.co/qLs2EgVf5G— Adrian Wojnarowski (@wojespn) June 2, 2021
I dont have to explain to you what a huge blow to the Sixers this is. Luckily the team is playing the 8th seeded Wizards,
