HAND INJURY ‘LEGITIMATE SCARE’: SIXER JOJO IFFY TONIGHT FOR SPURS

By Jack Ryan

Sixers center Joel Embiid is listed as doubtful for tonight’s Spurs game at the Wells because of his sprained right hand, suffered in a collision with the Suns’ Devin Booker on Sunday night.

Sixers coach Brett Brown explained yesterday how the injury is continuing to bother Embiid.

“It was a legitimate scare, a legitimate fall,” Brown said. “If you saw the palm of his hand, you’d see the bruising and the swelling and the discoloring. And if it was his non-shooting hand, you might feel more confident. But we’ll all learn more tomorrow.”

The Sixers are 2-7 on the season without him, though they did beat the Nuggets, 107-102, on Saturday when he rested.
