Philadelphia 76ers center Joel Embiid (back) was removed from the injury report and is expected to play in Wednesday's game against the San Antonio Spurs. Embiid has been playing through a back issue the last three games. It sounds like Embiid will be out there on Wednesday, but fantasy owners should check back before tip-off just to make sure.
Philadelphia 76ers center Joel Embiid finished with a monster 32-point, 14-rebound effort in just 27 minutes during Mondays blowout victory over the Houston Rockets. A large amount of Embiids work was done at the free-throw line, where he finished 14-for-17, also stuffing his stat line to the tune of three blocks, two assists and two steals. The nature of the victory limited his minutes total, so owners have nothing to fear moving forward about Phillys offensive nucleus who next draws a match-up with the San Antonio Spurs on Wednesday.
Philadelphia 76ers center Joel Embiid (back) will be a game-time decision Monday night against the Houston Rockets. This is the third consecutive game Embiid has been questionable to play with back tightness, but he was able to tough it out and play both of the previous two games. It is assumed Embiid will go through his pregame workouts unscathed and resume his starting role, but it's safe to wait for another update before tip-off.
