Injured with a meniscus, Joel Embiid joins the infirmary! | NBA


The Sixers can breathe: Joel Embiid suffers « only » from a small tear in the meniscus of the right knee. The All-Star pivot had indeed left his teammates prematurely during Game 4 against the Wizards, lost by Philadelphia, and he had to take exams in stride.

It is the franchise that officially announced the results of the MRI and now speaks of « day-to-day » management. Basically, it’s a small tear, and the staff think it can be managed with just care and rest, probably because it is located on the periphery and does not interfere with the functional movements of the knee. There is therefore no question of operation even if it is a lesion. According to ESPN, Joel Embiid simply has to wait for his knee to deflate to consider a return to the pitch.

However, the Cameroonian will not play Game 5 this Wednesday evening, at home, against Washington.

If they win this game, Doc Rivers’ troops will advance to the conference semi-finals, and they will challenge the series winner between the Knicks and the Hawks.
