Joel Embiid cleared to play in Game 1 of playoffs

Joel Embiid cleared to play in Game 1 of playoffs

Embiid, who has averaged 27.5 points with 13.6 rebounds per game this season, added: "Everybody who knows me knows I want to be on the floor and play through injuries and pain". "I also apologize to my teammates, the 76ers organization and the fans for the distraction this has caused".

The first-round schedule is below, with times for games one through four already in place.

The Sixers made the easy call and fined Johnson an unspecified amount for conduct detrimental to the team.

Simmons took a shot at the fans who let the home team hear it in Game 1, saying, "If you are going to boo, then stay on that side". In the end, I think we just gotta do better.

Harris' shooting slump was compounded by the fact that JJ Redick was only 1-for-4 from deep and Ben Simmons had one of the worst games of his young career. "I'm focused on the Brooklyn Nets".

Leafs' Kadri could face suspension for high hit
The NHL has offered Kadri an in-person hearing with the department of player safety, which may indicate a lengthy suspension. Pastrnak promptly fed a no-look-behind-the-back pass to Marchand, who slid a shot between Andersen's pads.


Embiid ended up playing only 10 minutes in the first half and the 76ers were outscored by 15 points with him on the court. Sure, he could shoot better as the series goes on (as could the Sixers as a whole after they went a paltry 3-for-25 from 3 on Saturday). "Now that we've attracted them into our system, we're going to work really hard at keeping them around for a while", Josh Harris said.

"I have addressed the matter with Amir directly, and he understands why his actions were unacceptable", Brand said.

Embiid missing time has become a common theme for the Sixers over the past two months. Either way, the faithful fans of Philadelphia will surely have more than a few comments about their star player on a phone during a playoff game.

And that's a victor in Philly playoff Bingo.
