Joel Embiid: Suffers concussion, orbital fracture

Per ESPN's Zach Lowe, depending on how the surgery turns out, Embiid could return to Philadelphia's lineup in two to four weeks.

Embiid was found not to have a concussion, and initial x-rays were negative, but he still spent time at the hospital treating facial contusions.

However, he later began experiencing symptoms, and has since been diagnosed with a concussion, and has been placed in the NBA's concussion protocol.

Named an all-star for the first time this season, Embiid leads a hot 76ers team - winners of eight games straight - that's now fourth in the Eastern Conference with averages of 22.9 points, 11 rebounds and 1.8 blocks.

Fultz was driving toward the basket 20 seconds into the second quarter when he collided with Embiid, who immediately went to the floor.

In Embiid's absence, rookie sensation Ben Simmons will have to carry a bigger workload for the playoff-bound Philadelphia 76ers.

Having avoided a recurrence of the knee and foot injuries that have hampered his National Basketball Association careers, Philadelphia 76ers Joel Embiid had stayed healthy for the season's first 73 games before a fluke injury Wednesday night put him on the sidelines.

Embiid lay on the court for several minutes, holding his face, before being helped off the court and escorted to the locker room, where, according to the 76ers, he "passed the NBA's locker room concussion assessment tool". Here's the latest on Joel Embiid's injury situation and whether he'll be able to play again soon for the Philadelphia 76ers. 76ers fans did not have long to revel in the return of last year's No. 1 overall pick before he inadvertently caused a major problem for the team's most important player. Joel Embiid is out for longer than we were led to believe. "I'm anxious about him, but I believe he's OK".

The Sixers play the Atlanta Hawks and Charlotte Hornets on the road before returning to play their next home game against the Brooklyn Nets. My heart dropped. He's a tough guy. They locked up a playoff spot on Sunday, They had an outside chance of getting 50 wins as they pushed for the 3rd seed with a cupcake schedule to finish the season, and Markelle Fultz unexpectedly came back on Monday vs the Nuggets. In the meantime, the Pacers are just a half-game up on the Pacers for fourth.
