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.

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,
