“You gotta keep pushing. I want us to build momentum. We got to keep winning these games. Every single one of them and nights like tonight can help me in the long run when I don’t have to play 30 minutes or more. It’s tight, but that’s not an excuse. You just got to keep it going.”
In order to put himself in a position to play, Embiid had to go through plenty of treatment. “Massages, treatment, lifting, cold tub, you just do you know it around the clock. The last treatment that I had last night was around 1 a.m. Even if it means not sleeping, just making sure that the body is right, obviously, sleeping helps a lot, too.”
The important part is that he continues to get treatment.
“You got to keep on doing the right things, obviously, as time goes it keeps on getting better,” he finished. “I just got to keep that mentality of doing the right thing and I’m sure in the end, it’s going to end up paying off.”
The Sixers continue the road trip on Sunday against the Indiana Pacers.
