Without an actual diagnosis to report at first, the 76ers offered some optimism as Embiid was considered to be doubtful for Game 5 against the Wizards rather than out.
Two days after the incident, optimism started going out the window when it was revealed that Embiid would be out for Game 5 due to a meniscus tear. Not only did Embiid make it out onto the court for Philly’s Game 1 matchup against the Atlanta Hawks in the second round of the playoffs, but he never missed a game throughout the entire seven-game series.
Now, the question is, what’s next for Embiid and his recovery process?
“I don’t know that ,” said Sixers head coach Doc Rivers on Monday morning, following the Game 7 loss on Sunday.
