SOUNDS LIKE DOC IS PREPARING FOR SIXERS GAME 1 WITHOUT JOJO!

By Sally Fahey

Sixers center Joel Embiid “did what he could do” in today’s practice, according to coach Doc Rivers.

Embiid (small meniscus tear, right knee) still hasn’t been able to fully participate in practice for the 76ers, who open their second round series against the Hawks on Sunday.

He’s considered to be day-to-day, but it’s difficult to envision a scenario in which he’s cleared to play in Game 1.

Dwight Howard becomes a player of greater importance with Embiid sidelined, and there may also be times in which the 76ers turn to Mike Scott as part of a smaller lineup.
