Joel Embiid Injury Update
If you’re a Philadelphia 76ers fan, then you are probably anxiously awaiting the latest Joel Embiid injury update. Right now, the Sixers are in a deep hole, trailing the Miami Heat 2-0 in the Eastern Conference Semifinals. With Joel Embiid out, they’ll have to hope to come back in Game 3 without a major injury to their star. However, this injury news is not good.
Embiid suffered a right orbital fracture
Joel Embiid was a game-time decision for the 76ers after suffering an injury to his right eye on Friday. Embiid had to undergo surgery to repair the fracture and missed the final eight games of the regular season as well as the first two games of the playoffs. He’ll be evaluated again next week. Embiid did not speak to reporters after the game.
Embiid will be evaluated by a doctor next week, and his return date is still unclear. The recovery time for an orbital fracture depends on how severe the fracture is, whether it requires surgery, and whether soft tissue or eye damage occurs. Embiid’s injury was the second in two weeks. The injury occurred during the fourth quarter of a game against the Raptors. During the game, Pascal Siakam drove and made contact with Embiid’s elbow.
The Philadelphia 76ers center Joel Embiid will miss the rest of the playoffs due to the right orbital fracture he suffered in Friday’s game against the Heat. The injury was not life-threatening, but he will be out for at least five days, according to sources. There is no specific timeline for his return. In the meantime, the team will have to do some work to get him back to full strength.
Joel Embiid suffered a left orbital fracture during the finals last season when he collided with Markelle Fultz. After the collision, Embiid missed the final eight games of the regular season and the first two games of the first round against the Miami Heat. Joel Embiid’s left orbital fracture was similar to his right orbital fracture but was considered non-surgical. While he’s out indefinitely, his return to the playoffs isn’t guaranteed.
He tore a ligament in his thumb
During the third game of the series, Philadelphia 76ers forward Joel Embiid tore a ligament in the thumb. The injury will require surgery. However, Embiid plans to play Game 4 against the Toronto Raptors on Sunday. On Friday, he practiced. It is unclear if he will receive an MRI before the Game. The team will provide updates on the condition of Embiid.
The Philadelphia 76ers are in a bind as they try to decide whether to rest their star forward. While they are waiting for the results of the surgery, they are unsure whether Embiid will miss any time. The injury isn’t serious, but it is concerning for the Sixers. With only one game left in the regular season, Joel Embiid’s absence could make the difference between a winning and losing series.
The thumb injury does not affect Embiid’s shooting motion, but it will limit him. Embiid felt pain in his thumb while passing out of the post and when trying to dribble. He also reportedly looked less aggressive when fighting for rebounds and loose balls. While it’s still unknown what will happen to Embiid’s game, he will continue to play through the injury.
It’s unclear how much longer Embiid will miss the series against the Raptors. It’s important to remember that Embiid is the X-factor of the Sixers, and his absence will be felt throughout the playoffs. If he can’t play well, the Sixers will have trouble scoring. Joel Emiid has a 37.2% usage rating, which is impressive considering how many games he’s missed this season.
He suffered a mild concussion
The Philadelphia 76ers will be without center Joel Embiid for Game 5 against the Miami Heat on Tuesday night. The injury is not considered serious, but it could still affect the starting lineup. The Sixers are expected to use a reserve wing in Joel Embiid’s place. The 76ers will also likely wear a protective face mask. A concussion could also cause temporary loss of coordination or difficulty thinking.
A right orbital fracture and a mild concussion are the two injuries that he has suffered from. Joel will not travel for the Miami games. Once he clears concussion protocols, he could return to play. It is unclear whether Embiid will miss any playoff games, but he is expected to play two more games in Philadelphia before being cleared for return to the Miami series.
The severity of the fracture and the time off that Embiid will need depends on the type and extent of the concussion. Embiid will be wearing a mask for the next few days, but did not mention surgery in his statement. He will have to go through the concussion protocol before returning to the court, which may take several days. The NBA will likely make a decision on Embiid’s status in the coming days.
After suffering multiple injuries in 2018, the Sixers have ruled out Joel Embiid from starting any playoff games this year. Despite his injury, he is expected to miss the remainder of the season and may be out for the playoffs. The Sixers have said that he will provide updates “as needed” after the game. The sixers will not rush Joel Embiid’s recovery time.
He has a torn meniscus
Philadelphia 76ers center Joel Embiid suffered a partial tear of his left knee, a torn meniscus. The NBA is currently investigating Embiid’s condition. Depending on the severity of the tear, Embiid may not need surgery, which would require surgery. If he can play without pain, Embiid may return to the court after rehabilitation.
Fortunately, the tear isn’t serious enough to warrant surgery. The NBA’s Center of Excellence is expected to be out for several weeks, but the Sixers will continue playing without him. The injury will require rehabilitation and physical therapy. Embiid, a two-time All-Star, is considered day-to-day and will be monitored closely. In the meantime, the Sixers will be without Simmons in the Rising Stars Challenge, as well as in the Skills Challenge.
A torn meniscus doesn’t have to require surgery. Some athletes suffer small tears that don’t require surgery. But a small tear still constitutes a tear and can be repaired. If a player is diagnosed with a torn meniscus, he may have to undergo rehabilitation. The resulting injury isn’t likely to be irreparable, but it will affect his ability to play for the remainder of the season.
While Embiid can’t play without treatment, it is possible that he could play in Game 5 if he can manage the swelling and pain. The first three weeks of recovery are the most challenging. The Philadelphia 76ers are trying to win the Eastern Conference this season without Joel Embiid. If he can play through the pain and inflammation, he might have a chance to return to the court in Game 6.
He has a torn ligament in his thumb
In Game 3 of the NBA Playoffs, Philadelphia 76ers forward Joel Embiid tore the ligament in his right thumb. It’s a common injury that can occur in basketball, and the tear in Embiid’s thumb is no exception. The UCL is responsible for stabilizing the base joint of the thumb and resisting the stresses that can push the thumb outward. Injuries to this ligament are often caused by falls on an outstretched hand.
The Philadelphia 76ers’ star is expected to miss the rest of the season with the injury. Embiid will likely require surgery to repair the tear. The injury will prevent him from playing in the playoffs, so it’s likely he’ll have to sit out the rest of the season to rest. Although this is unfortunate news for Sixers fans, the injury isn’t as serious as some people may have thought. The Sixers currently have a 3-1 series lead over Toronto. Joel Embiid is expected to miss several games, but there is still a chance that he could play in Game 5.
The Philadelphia 76ers’ star was not able to practice on Friday due to the torn ligament in his thumb. According to the head coach of the team, Shams Charania, Embiid will be able to practice through the injury. He will also have to undergo surgery to repair the ligament in his thumb. But Embiid will have the surgery after the Sixers’ season.
The injury is still not a game-ending issue for the 76ers, but it may affect the Sixers’ chances of winning the series. The Sixers are likely to complete their series tomorrow, which should give Embiid more rest and treatment. The Sixers will keep us updated on the situation. There is no definitive answer as to how long Joel Embiid will miss.
