Sixers Have ‘Optimism’ Joel Embiid Could Return For Game 2
Joel Embiid is unlikely to play in Game 1 on Monday, but there is “optimism” that he could play in Game 2 on Wednesday. Embiid is dealing with a LCL injury in his knee.
Embiid participated in shootaround and worked out afterward as well.
“There has been improvement and I’m told there is optimism that Joel Embiid could make his return for Game 2,” said Adrian Wojnarowski.
