The team announced Saturday that Philadelphia 76ers star Joel Embiet will be re-evaluated in two weeks for having an injured bone in his left knee.
Sources told ESPN that an MRI scan late on Friday showed no structural damage to the injured knee in the victory over the Washington guide. Immediately after returning to Philadelphia on Friday night, Embiat MRI
Emboide’s ACL and menstruation are good, and there is significant relief within the Sixers that the injury is not too bad.
Embite left the game Friday night after bending over on his left knee after falling with weight on his leg after a dunk in the third quarter.
The center was in the middle of the final dominance of his MVP-caliber season when he grabbed a pass from Tobias Harris, scoring 23 points off 8 points in 11 shots with 7 rebounds, 3 assists and 2 blocks in 20 minutes.
But when the emphysema fell behind the tank, the full weight of his body landed on that left leg, causing him to be injured and written off in pain.
After staying on the ground for a few minutes, Embite finally climbed to his feet and walked on his own, with a pronounced agility, as the audience headed straight back to the locker room inside Washington’s Capitol One arena.
Embiat was in a horrific situation when he injured his right knee in a fall against the Portland Trail Blazers after blocking a shot from Enz Condor last month.
