Philadelphia 76ers center Joel Embiid has been cleared to play against the New York Knicks on Tuesday night.
Instead, Embiid’s latest knee injury was suffered last Wednesday night in the matchup against the New Orleans Pelicans. Early on in the night, Embiid was spotted grabbing at his knee as he made contact with another player. After getting the night off on Thursday, the Sixers listed Embiid as questionable for Friday’s game against the Brooklyn Nets.
Despite his status being in question, Embiid was cleared for action against Brooklyn after going through morning shootaround and pregame warmups.
