The Sixers will play tomorrow night’s game 1 of the playoffs against the Miami Heat without star center Joel Embiid.
Coach Brett Brown made it official this morning:
“[Embiid] will not play in Game 1,” Brown said on the Dan Patrick Show on NBCSN. “He will not play in Game 1 and from that point going forward, we’ll figure some stuff out. Unless something remarkable happens, Dan, I don’t plan on him playing in Game 1.”
Embiid suffered a fractured left orbital in a collision with Markelle Fultz on March 28, and he is recovering gradually.
