76ers Joel Embiid Clears Concussion Protocol, Remains out for Game 2

Sixers' Game 1 win was blast but let's not get carried away

Joel Embiid will be out for at least another game, the 76ers announced on Sunday. Embiid was cleared from NBA's concussion protocol though.

Embiid suffered a broken orbital bone and concussion in a collision with teammate Markelle Fultz on March 28.

Game 2 Monday night at the Wells Fargo Center is where we will see the experience and mettle of the coaches tested, the ability of the players to adapt and improve, and get a better sense of how this series will play out.

The Heat will need to regroup and in a hurry with Game 2 around the corner on Monday.

Embiid's presence made the Sixers a better defensive team. After all, he's had a bunch of legal issues, gave a drunk interview at a 76ers' game earlier in the year, and no-showed at a BIG 3 game in its inaugural season. Embiid was the leading scorer for the 76ers with veteran J.J. Redick following behind at 17.1 points per game.

Joel Embiid did not play but he was in the building for Game 1 of the series.

"It's still about what's best for Joel's health", Brown said after practice Sunday.

Before the Game 1 win over the Heat, Embiid revealed to ESPN's Ramona Shelburne on Saturday that he would play if it was his choice but a more realistic option for him was Game 2 or 3. "And to have him come back and save the day because we lost Game 1, that's not going to happen".

Philadelphia won 16 straight games to close out the regular season.

No exact timetable was given for his return, but Embiid will wear a protective mask when he returns to the court. Philadelphia outscored Miami by 31 points in the second half of its 130-103 win, using a number of small-ball lineups after halftime.
