Joel Embiid injury update: 76ers star undergoes surgery on torn hand ligament, to be re-evaluated in 1-2 weeks

CBS Sports


Article Summary:

After suffering a nasty finger injury during the first quarter against the Oklahoma City Thunder on Monday night, Joel Embiid could be out of action for an extended period of time.

After seeing a specialist, it’s been determined that Embiid tore his radial collateral ligament in the fourth metacarpal – the bone connected to the ring finger – in his left hand, as reported by ESPN’s Tim Bontemps.

Brett Brown acknowledged the challenge of adjusting to playing without Embiid for the time being. X-rays taken on Monday night showed that there was no break, which led to Embiid seeing a specialist and learning about the torn ligament.
