Jan. 3 6:21 PM PT7:21 PM MT8:21 PM CT9:21 PM ET2:21 GMT10:21 7:21 PM MST9:21 PM EST6:21 UAE (+1)03:2121:21 ET8:21 PM CTNaN:� - Joel Embiid scored 21 points Wednesday, going 6 of 12 from the field, as the Philadelphia 76ers defeated the San Antonio Spurs 112-106. Embiid pulled down 11 rebounds and had four assists, accumulating a plus-minus of +16 in his 35:21 on the floor. He added four blocks and one steal.
Analysis: Embiid shook off a sprained right hand that nearly kept him out of the lineup. He suffered the injury in a hard fall Saturday against the Suns. Philadelphia's leading scorer and rebounder sat as his locker before the game and said his hand was swollen and he couldn't shoot. Embiid used a soft touch to sink a couple of shots during pregame drills, and that was enough to convince the Sixers he could play through the injury.
Dec. 29 11:44 AM PT12:44 PM MT1:44 PM CT2:44 PM ET19:44 GMT3:44 12:44 PM MST2:44 PM EST23:44 UAE20:4414:44 ET1:44 PM CTNaN:� - Embiid will play Wednesday against the Spurs after he sprained right hand he suffered going after an inbounds pass late in Sunday's victory over the Suns.
Analysis: Embiid had his hand wrapped in ice after the game and said he thought he would be fine. This is just the latest in an already extensive injury history that includes foot and knee surgeries which have limited his ability to play since he was drafted third overall in 2014. More recently, he has dealt with back tightness.
Dec. 28 10:16 AM PT11:16 AM MT12:16 PM CT1:16 PM ET18:16 GMT2:16 11:16 AM MST1:16 PM EST22:16 UAE19:1613:16 ET12:16 PM CTNaN:� - Embiid, who was questionable for Thursday's game due to a tight back, scored 29 points on 9-of-21 shooting as the Philadelphia 76ers lost to the Portland Trail Blazers 114-110. Embiid pulled down nine rebounds and dished out three assists, accumulating a plus-minus of 0 in his 34:52 on the floor. He added one block. Embiid went 6 of 12 from behind the arc.
Analysis: An unusual performance from the standout but injury-prone center, who easily set a career high for 3-pointers made but was mostly neutralized in the paint. Other than his improving outside touch, the good news regarding Embiid is that he's played in all three games of the 76ers' current road trip and has tallied 54 points, 25 rebounds, six assists and four blocks over the past two.
Dec. 25 11:47 AM PT12:47 PM MT1:47 PM CT2:47 PM ET19:47 GMT3:47 12:47 PM MST2:47 PM EST23:47 UAE20:4714:47 ET1:47 PM CTNaN:� - Joel Embiid scored 25 points Monday on 8-of-17 shooting as the Philadelphia 76ers topped the New York Knicks 105-98. Embiid pulled down 16 rebounds and dished out three assists, accumulating a plus-minus of +24 in his 34:29 on the floor. He added three blocks. Embiid went 2 of 3 from behind the arc.
Analysis: Embiid should be back in your lineup after missing time recently, but owners should be aware that the 76ers are going to play it safe with him if anything else comes up.
Dec. 24 8:34 AM PT9:34 AM MT10:34 AM CT11:34 AM ET16:34 GMT0:34 9:34 AM MST11:34 AM EST20:34 UAE17:3411:34 ET10:34 AM CTNaN:� - Embiid is questionable for Monday's game versus the Knicks after missing practice Sunday to get treatment on his back.
Analysis: Embiid played a season-low 23 minutes Saturday after missing three straight games and five of seven due to back tightness. It appears this problem isn't going away anytime soon and it's a risk to plan on using him this upcoming week in fantasy.
Dec. 23 4:38 PM PT5:38 PM MT6:38 PM CT7:38 PM ET0:38 GMT8:38 5:38 PM MST7:38 PM EST4:38 UAE (+1)01:3819:38 ET6:38 PM CTNaN:� - Joel Embiid scored 14 points Saturday on 5-of-13 shooting as the Philadelphia 76ers lost to the Toronto Raptors 102-86. Embiid grabbed eight rebounds and dished out two assists, tallying a plus-minus of -17 in his 22:57 of playing time. He added three blocks. Embiid went 1 of 4 from behind the arc.
Analysis: Embiid played after missing three straight games and five of seven contests with back tightness. His 23 minutes were his fewest of the season. ''It wasn't feeling the best but I really wanted to play tonight,'' Embiid said. Philadelphia coach Brett Brown said he could tell Embiid was frustrated at not being able to perform better. ''He wants to do so much more and he can't,'' Brown said. ''He just hasn't practiced or, recently, played."
Dec. 17 9:57 AM PT10:57 AM MT11:57 AM CT12:57 PM ET17:57 GMT1:57 10:57 AM MST12:57 PM EST21:57 UAE18:5712:57 ET11:57 AM CTNaN:� - Embiid (back tightness) will play Saturday after sitting out Thursday against the Raptors.
Analysis: The Sixers have generally been overly cautious with the oft-injured big man, who has missed three straight games and five of seven contests. It's safe to get him in your lineup.
Dec. 15 7:44 AM PT8:44 AM MT9:44 AM CT10:44 AM ET15:44 GMT23:44 8:44 AM MST10:44 AM EST19:44 UAE16:4410:44 ET9:44 AM CTNaN:� - Embiid will play in Friday's tilt versus the Thunder despite having been listed as questionable because of back tightness.
Analysis: It's the same issue which caused him to miss both of Philadelphia's games last weekend, though he came back Tuesday to post 28 points, 12 rebounds and eight assists in 39 minutes.
Dec. 15 7:47 PM PT8:47 PM MT9:47 PM CT10:47 PM ET3:47 GMT11:47 8:47 PM MST10:47 PM EST7:47 UAE (+1)04:4722:47 ET9:47 PM CTNaN:� - Joel Embiid scored 34 points Friday, going 11 of 20 from the field, as the Philadelphia 76ers lost to the Oklahoma City Thunder 119-117 in triple overtime. Embiid pulled down eight rebounds and dished out six assists, tallying a plus-minus of +6 in his 48:39 of playing time. He added two blocks.
Analysis: It was great that Embiid scored 34 points in a career-high 48 minutes but he grabbed his lower back when he took a hard foul on a drive to the basket in the fourth quarter. Embiid grimaced during timeouts on the bench and trudged into position a few times. Philly is off until Monday at Chicago so he should be good to go by then.
Dec. 8 3:05 PM PT4:05 PM MT5:05 PM CT6:05 PM ET23:05 GMT7:05 4:05 PM MST6:05 PM EST3:05 UAE (+1)00:0518:05 ET5:05 PM CTNaN:� - After sitting out two games with back tightness, Embiid returned Tuesday and scored 28 points on 8-of-16 shooting as the Philadelphia 76ers topped the Minnesota Timberwolves 118-112 in overtime. Embiid grabbed 12 rebounds and dished out eight assists, tallying a plus-minus of +19 in his 39:26 on the floor. He added one block. Embiid went 1 of 1 from behind the arc.
Analysis: The 39 minutes were a career high for The Process, erasing any owner fears about a playing-time limit, and the eight assists were as well. Now averaging a stellar 27.2 points, 11 rebounds, 3.3 assists and 2.3 blocks over his last six games, the only thing preventing Embiid from every-game dominance is the restrictions he's under due to his medical history.
Dec. 7 8:06 PM PT9:06 PM MT10:06 PM CT11:06 PM ET4:06 GMT12:06 9:06 PM MST11:06 PM EST8:06 UAE05:0623:06 ET10:06 PM CTNaN:� - Joel Embiid scored 33 points Thursday on 11-of-17 shooting as the Philadelphia 76ers fell to the Los Angeles Lakers 107-104. Embiid grabbed seven rebounds and had six assists, tallying a plus-minus of +14 in his 36:21 on the floor. He added five blocks and one steal. Embiid went 2 of 3 from 3-point range.
Analysis: Sixers' fans must be elated not only to see Embiid not only play, but continue to play at a high level.
Dec. 4 6:03 PM PT7:03 PM MT8:03 PM CT9:03 PM ET2:03 GMT10:03 7:03 PM MST9:03 PM EST6:03 UAE (+1)03:0321:03 ET8:03 PM CTNaN:� - Embiid scored 22 points Monday, going 7 of 18 from the field, as the Philadelphia 76ers lost to the Phoenix Suns 115-101. Embiid grabbed 12 rebounds and had two assists, tallying a plus-minus of -11 in his 34:02 on the floor. He added four blocks.
Analysis: Embiid has averaged 25.5 points and 11.8 boards over his last four contests.
Dec. 2 7:34 PM PT8:34 PM MT9:34 PM CT10:34 PM ET3:34 GMT11:34 8:34 PM MST10:34 PM EST7:34 UAE (+1)04:3422:34 ET9:34 PM CTNaN:� - Joel Embiid scored 25 points Saturday, going 7 of 21 from the field, as the Philadelphia 76ers defeated the Detroit Pistons 108-103. Embiid grabbed 10 rebounds and did not have an assist, tallying a plus-minus of +1 in his 31:49 on the floor. He tacked on one steal.
Analysis: Embiid notched his sixth straight double-double despite one of his worst shooting games of the season. He's shot under 50 percent in six of his last seven games but he's averaged 23.1 points and 11.4 rebounds in that span so any criticism seems foolish.
Nov. 30 8:02 AM PT9:02 AM MT10:02 AM CT11:02 AM ET16:02 GMT0:02 9:02 AM MST11:02 AM EST20:02 UAE17:0211:02 ET10:02 AM CTNaN:� - Joel Embiid scored 25 points Wednesday on 6-of-15 shooting as the Philadelphia 76ers defeated the Washington Wizards 118-113. Embiid grabbed 14 rebounds and had four assists, tallying a plus-minus of +3 in his 32:11 of playing time before fouling out. He added four blocks and one steal.
Analysis: Embiid notched his fifth straight double-double and seventh in eight games, a span in which he's averaged 26.9 points and 12.6 rebounds. However, he will sit out against Boston on Thursday because the team isn't ready to have him play on back-to-back nights after he fought through injuries his first three seasons. Be aware that the 76ers also play three back-to-backs in December.
Nov. 29 1:31 PM PT2:31 PM MT3:31 PM CT4:31 PM ET21:31 GMT5:31 2:31 PM MST4:31 PM EST1:31 UAE (+1)22:3116:31 ET3:31 PM CTNaN:� - Embiid (rest) will sit out Thursday's matchup with the Celtics. Amir Johnson is starting in his place.
Analysis: This will be just the second time the 76ers have rested the oft-injured Embiid this season, but it's also just the second time they've played on back-to-back days.
Nov. 27 7:42 PM PT8:42 PM MT9:42 PM CT10:42 PM ET3:42 GMT11:42 8:42 PM MST10:42 PM EST7:42 UAE (+1)04:4222:42 ET9:42 PM CTNaN:� - Joel Embiid scored 30 points Monday on 11-of-24 shooting as the Philadelphia 76ers fell to the Cleveland Cavaliers 113-91. Embiid grabbed 11 rebounds and did not have an assist, accumulating a plus-minus of -23 in his 32:49 on the floor.
Analysis: Embiid notched his fourth straight double-double and sixth in seven games, he is averaging 27.1 points and 12.4 rebounds in those contests.
Nov. 25 7:34 AM PT8:34 AM MT9:34 AM CT10:34 AM ET15:34 GMT23:34 8:34 AM MST10:34 AM EST19:34 UAE16:3410:34 ET9:34 AM CTNaN:� - Embiid will play against the Magic on Saturday despite dealing with an illness.
Analysis: The 76ers have previously been super cautious with their injury-prone star, so fantasy owners must always be prepared for Embiid sitting one out.
Nov. 25 6:46 PM PT7:46 PM MT8:46 PM CT9:46 PM ET2:46 GMT10:46 7:46 PM MST9:46 PM EST6:46 UAE (+1)03:4621:46 ET8:46 PM CTNaN:� - Joel Embiid scored 18 points Saturday, going 7 of 17 from the field, as the Philadelphia 76ers topped the Orlando Magic 130-111. Embiid grabbed 14 rebounds and had six assists, tallying a plus-minus of +12 in his 28:32 on the floor. Embiid went 1 of 1 from 3-point range.
Analysis: Embiid collected his ninth double-double of the season, and third in a row.

Embiid pulled down 12 rebounds and added an assist, accumulating a plus-minus of +9 in his 30:09 of playing time. He added two blocks. Embiid went 1 of 3 from behind the arc.
Analysis: Embiid notched his second straight double-double and is enjoying an outstanding fantasy season.
Nov. 20 8:20 AM PT9:20 AM MT10:20 AM CT11:20 AM ET16:20 GMT0:20 9:20 AM MST11:20 AM EST20:20 UAE17:2011:20 ET10:20 AM CTNaN:� - Embiid (left knee soreness) is available for Monday's game against the Jazz.
Analysis: The 76ers have been super cautious with the big man in the past, driving fantasy owners batty.
Nov. 20 5:59 PM PT6:59 PM MT7:59 PM CT8:59 PM ET1:59 GMT9:59 6:59 PM MST8:59 PM EST5:59 UAE (+1)02:5920:59 ET7:59 PM CTNaN:� - Joel Embiid scored 15 points Monday, going 7 of 16 from the field, as the Philadelphia 76ers defeated the Utah Jazz 107-86. Embiid grabbed 11 rebounds and dished out three assists, tallying a plus-minus of +16 in his 26:59 of playing time. He added two blocks.
Analysis: Embiid skipped the morning shootaround because of pain his surgically-repaired left knee but he posted his seventh double-double. He's totaled 36 points on 14-of-32 shooting in two games since scoring a career-high 46 against the Lakers, but Embiid also has 19 rebounds, six assists and three blocks in those two contests.
Nov. 18 8:35 PM PT9:35 PM MT10:35 PM CT11:35 PM ET4:35 GMT12:35 9:35 PM MST11:35 PM EST8:35 UAE05:3523:35 ET10:35 PM CTNaN:� - Joel Embiid scored 21 points Saturday, going 7 of 16 from the field, as the Philadelphia 76ers fell to the Golden State Warriors 124-116. Embiid pulled down eight rebounds and dished out three assists, tallying a plus-minus of -10 in his 33:23 on the floor. He added one block. Embiid went 1 of 4 from 3-point range.
Analysis: Embiid was coming off a career-best performance - 46 points, 15 rebounds, seven blocks, seven assists - in a 115-109 win at the Los Angeles Lakers on Wednesday. The Sixers get the Jazz on Monday, and Embiid was given the night off to rest in Philadelphia's win at Utah on Nov. 7.
Nov. 16 10:23 PM PT11:23 PM MT12:23 AM CT1:23 AM ET6:23 GMT14:23 11:23 PM MST1:23 AM EST10:23 UAE07:231:23 ET12:23 AM CTNaN:� - Joel Embiid scored 46 points Wednesday, going 14 of 20 from the field, as the Philadelphia 76ers topped the Los Angeles Lakers 115-109. Embiid grabbed 15 rebounds and dished out seven assists, tallying a plus-minus of +19 in his 34:29 of playing time. He added seven blocks. Embiid went 2 of 3 from 3-point range.
Analysis: Looks like Embiid's bothersome knees are just fine. Two days after posterizing the Clippers for 32 points and 16 rebounds, the dominant young center became the first NBA player with 40 points, seven assists and seven blocks since Sixers great Julius Erving did so in 1982. Right now the best defense against Embiid seems to be scheduling Philadelphia on one end of a back-to-back.
Nov. 14 11:00 PM PT12:00 AM MT1:00 AM CT2:00 AM ET7:00 GMT15:00 12:00 AM MST2:00 AM EST11:00 UAE08:002:00 ET1:00 AM CTNaN:� - Joel Embiid scored 32 points Monday on 11-of-20 shooting as the Philadelphia 76ers defeated the Los Angeles Clippers 109-105. Embiid grabbed 16 rebounds and dished out two assists, accumulating a plus-minus of +23 in his 35:48 of playing time. He added one block. Embiid went 1 of 5 from 3-point range.
Analysis: Held to 12 points on 4-of-11 shooting by the Warriors two nights ago, Embiid bounced back by schooling DeAndre Jordan on the way to season-high totals for points and rebounds. While his balky knee will remain a potential obstacle for fantasy owners, the mega-talented center has been getting it done by averaging 22.3 points, 10.2 boards and 1.4 blocks while playing in eight of the Sixers' last nine games.
Nov. 12 10:22 PM PT11:22 PM MT12:22 AM CT1:22 AM ET6:22 GMT14:22 11:22 PM MST1:22 AM EST10:22 UAE07:221:22 ET12:22 AM CTNaN:� - Joel Embiid scored 12 points Saturday on 4-of-11 shooting as the Philadelphia 76ers lost to the Golden State Warriors 135-114. Embiid pulled down seven rebounds and dished out two assists, accumulating a plus-minus of -9 in his 25:10 on the floor. He added one block and one steal.
Analysis: This wasn't one of the big guy's better games, especially when you factor in his seven turnovers. Though Embiid's per-game numbers (19.8 points, 10.3 rebounds, 1.5 blocks) remain outstanding, he's still dealing with knee soreness that make him riskier than most players of his caliber.
Nov. 10 9:10 PM PT10:10 PM MT11:10 PM CT12:10 AM ET5:10 GMT13:10 10:10 PM MST12:10 AM EST9:10 UAE06:100:10 ET11:10 PM CTNaN:� - Joel Embiid scored 22 points Thursday on 7-of-20 shooting as the Philadelphia 76ers fell to the Sacramento Kings 109-108. Embiid pulled down 15 rebounds and dished out two assists, accumulating a plus-minus of +6 in his 32:19 of playing time. He added three blocks. Embiid went 1 of 4 from 3-point range.
Analysis: The 76ers have been carefully monitoring the minutes for Embiid, as they try to make sure he's on the court more than 31 games, his rookie-season total. He played a season-high 32 minutes versus the Kings and is averaging 28 minutes a game when he does suit up. He has gone longer than 30 minutes only twice. Embiid struggled with his shot Thursday but grabbed a career-high 15 boards.
Nov. 6 8:51 AM PT9:51 AM MT10:51 AM CT11:51 AM ET16:51 GMT0:51 9:51 AM MST11:51 AM EST20:51 UAE17:5111:51 ET10:51 AM CTNaN:� - Embiid (rest) will not play Tuesday in Utah but is expected to return Thursday at Sacramento.
Analysis: There is no injury reported here, and the fact that this is not part of a back-to-back is a bit odd. However, the 76ers are just wanting to be cautious and manage the workload of the oft-injured big man.
Nov. 3 7:41 PM PT8:41 PM MT9:41 PM CT10:41 PM ET2:41 GMT10:41 7:41 PM MST9:41 PM EST6:41 UAE (+1)03:4122:41 ET8:41 PM CTNaN:� - Joel Embiid scored 18 points Friday on 7-of-15 shooting as the Philadelphia 76ers topped the Indiana Pacers 121-110.

Nov. 1 7:39 PM PT8:39 PM MT9:39 PM CT10:39 PM ET2:39 GMT10:39 7:39 PM MST9:39 PM EST6:39 UAE (+1)03:3922:39 ET8:39 PM CTNaN:� - Joel Embiid scored 21 points Wednesday on 9-of-16 shooting as the Philadelphia 76ers topped the Atlanta Hawks 119-109. Embiid grabbed 12 rebounds and had six assists, accumulating a plus-minus of +2 in his 30:15 on the floor. He added three blocks and three steals. Embiid went 1 of 3 from 3-point range.
Analysis: Embiid matched his career high of 30 minutes and scored over 20 points for the fifth straight game. He's just a model of consistency right now, averaging 23.4 points on 60.0 percent shooting with 9.0 rebounds in his that five-game span.
Oct. 30 7:17 PM PT8:17 PM MT9:17 PM CT10:17 PM ET2:17 GMT10:17 7:17 PM MST9:17 PM EST6:17 UAE (+1)03:1722:17 ET8:17 PM CTNaN:� - Joel Embiid scored 22 points Monday on 9-of-12 shooting as the Philadelphia 76ers defeated the Houston Rockets 115-107. Embiid pulled down nine rebounds and had five assists, accumulating a plus-minus of +17 in his 24:57 of playing time. He added one block and two steals.
Analysis: Embiid was outstanding again despite dealing with a bruised right hand. He's scored at least 21 points in four straight games, averaging 24.0 on 61.0 percent shooting with 8.3 rebounds. He does have 20 turnovers in that span as one of his few negatives lately.
Oct. 29 11:14 AM PT12:14 PM MT1:14 PM CT2:14 PM ET18:14 GMT2:14 11:14 AM MST1:14 PM EST22:14 UAE19:1414:14 ET12:14 PM CTNaN:� - Embiid says he will play Monday despite suffering a right hand contusion in Saturday night's game.
Analysis: X-rays were negative, and the 76ers are calling him day to day. "I don’t care what they say, I’m playing," Embiid said.
Oct. 28 7:23 PM PT8:23 PM MT9:23 PM CT10:23 PM ET2:23 GMT10:23 7:23 PM MST9:23 PM EST6:23 UAE (+1)04:2322:23 ET9:23 PM CTNaN:� - Joel Embiid scored 23 points Saturday on 8-of-19 shooting as the Philadelphia 76ers topped the Dallas Mavericks 112-110. Embiid grabbed nine rebounds and dished out four assists, tallying a plus-minus of -4 in his 29:22 of playing time. Embiid went 3 of 7 from 3-point range.
Analysis: Embiid scored over 20 for the third straight game but did match a season high with seven turnovers while shooting under 50 percent. He has gone three games without a double-double since posting two in his first two games, but there will be plenty of 10-plus rebound performances in the near future for the big center.
Oct. 25 6:02 PM PT7:02 PM MT8:02 PM CT9:02 PM ET1:02 GMT9:02 6:02 PM MST8:02 PM EST5:02 UAE (+1)03:0221:02 ET8:02 PM CTNaN:� - Joel Embiid scored 21 points Wednesday on 8-of-13 shooting as the Philadelphia 76ers fell to the Houston Rockets 105-104.

Analysis: Embiid was outstanding again with 21 points and six rebounds in under 25 minutes. His second 3 of the season came in the fourth quarter and gave the Sixers a nine-point lead they wouldn't hold. The big center is 2 for 3 from 3-point range the last two games after going 0 for 10 in his first two. Embiid is 19 for 28 from the field in his last two games after he was 11 for 31 in the first two.
Oct. 23 2:59 PM PT3:59 PM MT4:59 PM CT5:59 PM ET21:59 GMT5:59 2:59 PM MST4:59 PM EST1:59 UAE (+1)23:5917:59 ET4:59 PM CTNaN:� - Embiid will start Monday at Detroit.
Analysis: Embiid has yet to be cleared to play on consecutive days due to previous issues with his left knee and right foot, so he sat out Saturday at Toronto. He's totaled 29 points and 27 rebounds in two games so far but shot 11 of 31.
Oct. 23 7:31 PM PT8:31 PM MT9:31 PM CT10:31 PM ET2:31 GMT10:31 7:31 PM MST9:31 PM EST6:31 UAE (+1)04:3122:31 ET9:31 PM CTNaN:� - Joel Embiid scored 30 points Monday as the Philadelphia 76ers defeated the Detroit Pistons 97-86.

Analysis: Embiid (left knee) sat out the game at Toronto on Saturday - the second half of a back-to-back. He shot 11 of 15 from the field against Detroit, although he did turn the ball over seven times.
Oct. 20 2:17 PM PT3:17 PM MT4:17 PM CT5:17 PM ET21:17 GMT5:17 2:17 PM MST4:17 PM EST1:17 UAE (+1)23:1717:17 ET4:17 PM CTNaN:� - Though he will play Friday against Boston, Embiid (rest) will sit out Saturday's game against the Raptors.
Analysis: Embiid says he has not been cleared to play both games of a back-to-back. Fortunately for his fantasy owners, the 76ers don't have another one until the final two days of November.
Oct. 20 6:46 PM PT7:46 PM MT8:46 PM CT9:46 PM ET1:46 GMT9:46 6:46 PM MST8:46 PM EST5:46 UAE (+1)03:4621:46 ET8:46 PM CTNaN:� - Joel Embiid scored 11 points Friday, going 4 of 16 from the field, as the Philadelphia 76ers lost to the Boston Celtics 102-92.

Embiid struggled from 3-point range, coming up empty on all six of his attempts.
Analysis: Embiid has yet to be cleared to play on consecutive days due to previous issues with his left knee and his right foot, so he'll sit out Saturday's game at Toronto. The standout young center missed his first two NBA seasons recovering from foot surgeries, and the Sixers have plenty invested in him. He signed a five-year, $148 million extension during the preseason.

Embiid pulled down 13 rebounds and had three assists, accumulating a plus-minus of +1 in his 26:57 on the floor. He added one block.
Analysis: Sixers coach Brett Brown denied that Embiid was on a strict minutes restriction of 16 minutes, and with good reason. Embiid played 26:57 and notched his 10th double-double in 32 career games. Philly plays back-to-back games on Friday and Saturday, so it will be interesting to see how much Embiid plays in those.

The person spoke on condition of anonymity Monday because the contract has not been officially announced. The person said Embiid and the Sixers have agreed on a $148 million, five-year extension and it could reach even more if the 7-foot center reaches certain incentives.
Analysis: Embiid's career has been riddled with injuries dating to his college career at Kansas and all three seasons with the Sixers. Embiid, the No. 3 overall pick in the 2014 draft, played only 31 games last season and had surgery in March to repair a torn meniscus in his knee. He was only recently cleared to participate in 5-on-5 drills but the Sixers must feel confident enough in his health to offer him the max deal.

Analysis: Embiid sat out Philadelphia's preseason opener on Wednesday and won't play against Boston on Friday. The Sixers are hopeful Embiid will be in the lineup on opening night.

Analysis: The good news is that Embiid will still take part in some drills and activity and the 76ers expect him to be ready for the Oct. 18 season opener. The injury-plagued center will be a fantasy factor whenever he's healthy and on the court, but owners should still count on the team monitoring his minutes throughout the season.

Analysis: Embiid directed the obscenity at Lavar Ball in an Instagram Live video this this week. Earlier, Embiid tweeted about LaVar and Lonzo Ball to 76ers teammate Ben Simmons, saying: ''Please dunk on him so hard that his daddy runs on the court to save him.''
