Philadelphia 76ers center Joel Embiid connected on just 6-for-18 shooting to score 21 points in the 92-90 Game 7 loss to the Raptors on Sunday. Embiid grabbed 12 rebounds with three blocks and added four assists but made just 1-for-6 from three as the Raptors dared him to shoot from deep. Embiid did struggle throughout much of this series on the offensive end, but it needs to be noted that he was an impressive plus-90 in the seven games when he was on the floor. Embiid has some health issues he needs to get passed, but either way, we can assume another monster season from Cameroonian big man in 2019-20 as "The Process" continues.
Philadelphia 76ers center Joel Embiid put together 17 points and grabbed 12 rebounds for his second double-double in this series in the Game 6 win over the Raptors. Embiid added two blocks with a steal and although this was not an eye-popping line, Embiid showed his value as he was a ridiculous plus-40 when he was on the floor in 36 minutes. He started slow, making just one of his first eight shots, and is still not playing anywhere near 100 percent. It is a big game on Sunday, and it will be interesting to see which Embiid shows up, making him a tough DFS play.
Philadelphia 76ers center Joel Embiid (illness) is reportedly fine for Thursday's Game 6 versus the Toronto Raptors. Embiid wasn't listed on the injured list and reportedly looked good at shootaround. This is an elimination game for Philly, so having Embiid available is huge. Embiid will need to do more than he did in Game 5 if the Sixers want to force a Game 7.
