Joel Embiid to remain sidelined for Game 2

Can anyone stop the Warriors winning again

CAMDEN, N.J. Center Joel Embiid cleared the NBA's concussion protocol, the 76ers announced Sunday. He wasn't cleared for contact activities until Saturday.

Embiid sustained the eye injury in a March 28 collision with rookie Markelle Fultz. He was expected to miss 2-4 weeks, meaning he could return close to the beginning of the playoffs or after the first round.

After missing each of his first two National Basketball Association seasons due to injury and being limited to 31 games in 2016-17, Embiid played a career-high 63 games this season.

He also had a little fun with a different mask.

However, the Sixers didn't have a tough time without him in Saturday's 130-103 Game 1 victory over the Heat.

Game 2 is Monday night at 8 p.m.

Joel Embiid's return will have to wait until Friday (AEST) at the earliest. Other than a handful of games, he's been the best player on the court.

The All-Star big man averaged 22.9 points, 11.0 rebounds, 3.2 assists and 1.8 blocks during those contests. I've been able to do everything.

Overall, Philadelphia is riding a 16-game winning streak into the playoffs.

"I feel fine", Redick said.

Veteran Amir Johnson will likely start in place of the injured Embiid in Game 1 of the Sixers' first-round playoff series. "We gonna see how it feels in the next couple of days".

Toronto entered having lost an NBA-worst 10 consecutive Game 1s since, including six at home.
