Joel Embiid Feels Placed in ‘Lose-Lose’ Situation in NBA Playoffs

Times are tough for Philadelphia 76ers center Joel Embiid. Not only is the big man dealing with a torn thumb ligament, which he suffered during Game 3 of the first-round series against the Toronto Raptors, but he’s also battling an orbital fracture and a mild concussion after taking an elbow to the face during Game 6.

The latter injuries kept him off the floor for the first two games of the second-round series against the Miami Heat. Once Embiid was cleared out of the NBA’s concussion protocol last Thursday, he was on track to play in Game 3.
