76ers’ Joel Embiid questionable for Game 1 vs. Hawks
Philadelphia 76ers bigman Joel Embiid is listed as questionable for Game 1 of the series against the Atlanta Hawks, according to Shams Charania of The Athletic and Stadium.
Emdiid will go through a pregame workout and treatment to determine if he will be available for Sunday’s matchup. The Sixers announced the All-Star center suffered a small meniscus tear in his right knee.
He suffered the injury during Game 4 of the first-round series against the Washington Wizards on May 31. The Sixers lost that game, but they were able to secure a Game 5 win to advance to the second round.
The four-time All-Star averaged a career-high 28.5 points per game and shot 37.7 percent from three-point range during the regular season.
