SIXERS EMBIID DAY-TO-DAY: WHY NOT WAIT UNTIL GAME 2 TUESDAY?

By Teddy Brenner

Sixers center Joel Embiid’s status for Game 1 of the Hawks series tomorrow is still unknown because of a cartilage tear in his knee.

He’s day to day, and did not participate in live drills during yesterday’s practice.

“He’s got to go through his treatment,” Sixers coach Doc Rivers said. “As far as when we were doing shooting and stuff like that, he looked great. It’s too early [to rule him out]. I don’t want to say one way or the other. We’ll just find that out.”

Embiid missed the Sixers’ first-round Eastern Conference playoff clincher against Washington after he was hurt Monday.

He averaged 28.5 points and 10.6 rebounds this season and was named an NBA MVP finalist.

The Sixers are the top seed in the Eastern Conference and will also host Game 2 on Tuesday.
