Simmons Flirted With Triple-Double, Sixers Roll Past Heat In Game 1

He recently cleared the National Basketball Association concussion protocol.

Joel Embiid will not play in Game 2 of the 76ers' opening-round playoff series with the Miami Heat.

Embiid was a spectator in Game 1 of the first-round series because of a broken orbital bone around his left eye. Embiid had surgery March 31st.

The 7-footer wore the mask during pregame shooting drills and would need one in the postseason. "And it's been determined that he shall not play Game 2 for that reason.".

Woman who drove SUV with family inside over California cliff was drunk
A witness told investigators they saw a maroon SUV, possibly a Honda Pilot, crash into the river north of Leggett around 1:10 p.m. The 31-metre drop killed the women, both 39, and their children Markis Hart , 19; Jeremiah Hart , 14; and Abigail Hart , 14.

Embiid's next opportunity to make his return will come in Thursday's Game 3 in Miami.

John Wall led eighth-seeded Washington with 23 points and 15 assists, and Markieff Morris scored 22 points and grabbed 11 rebounds. He will not play in Game 1 and from that point going forward, we'll figure some stuff out. So we got a pretty good chance for Game 2 or Game 3.

Embiid said he has lost some weight since he suffered the injury.

Embiid's presence made the Sixers a better defensive team.
