Article Summary:

After missing nine games over three weeks, Joel Embiid was back on the court for the 76ers Saturday night, putting up 42 points and grabbing 14 boards in a heartbreaking loss to Minnesota.

After the game, Embiid was honest and said 24 hours earlier he didn’t think he could play because he was still feeling the impact of the COVID-19 that had sidelined him.

“The first time I went up and down was probably two days ago,” Embiid said. With Embiid back, the 76ers are banking on making a run to push them back up the standings.
