Joel Embiid injury update: 76ers star starts in Game 1 vs. Hawks despite torn meniscus in right knee

CBS Sports


Article Summary:

After days of concern regarding MVP finalist Joel Embiid’s status for the Philadelphia 76ers’ second-round playoff series against the Atlanta Hawks, the team announced that its All-Star big man is starting in Game 1 on Sunday.

Embiid suffered a small meniscus tear in his right knee in the first round of the playoffs, and underwent treatment to rehab from the injury, but there was legitimate concern regarding if he would be ready to play in the first game of this series. Just because Embiid is back in the starting lineup doesn’t mean he’s exactly 100 percent. We’ll have to wait and see how he’s able to perform on his knee against the Hawks to tell if he’s playing at the MVP-level he’s been operating at this entire season, or if he’s still hampered from that meniscus tear.
