Joel Embiid To Undergo Surgery For Orbital Fracture


Embiid suffered a concussion early in the second quarter on Wednesday night against the Knicks after colliding with Markelle Fultz.

League sources confirmed to The Post's Tim Bontemps that the surgery is expected to keep Embiid out of action for two to four weeks, and the NBA's postseason starts on April 14.

Unlike his frontcourt partner Joel Embiid, Dario Saric doesn't feel forced to put up a tough front when it comes to the future of the Philadelphia 76ers.

Embiid was initially diagnosed with a facial contusion before being examined at Jefferson Hospital for precautionary tests. That, in large part, has been due to Embiid's efforts on both ends of the floor, as he's averaging 22.9 points, 11.0 rebounds, 3.2 assists and a combined 2.4 blocks/steals in 30.3 minutes.

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

Immediately following the injury, Embiid was assessed for a concussion, was asymptomatic at that time, and passed the NBA's locker room concussion assessment tool.

With the Sixers notorious for playing it safe with their young, injury prone stars, it would come as no surprise if Embiid has played his final game of the 2017-18 regular season. At first, the injury didn't seem like that big of a deal after the Sixers announced the All-Star would miss at least the next two games, but it appears there may be additional reasons for concern over Embiid if the injury is more serious than expected.

Joel Embiid tweeted on Thursday to address his latest misfortune.

The Sixers play the Atlanta Hawks and Charlotte Hornets on the road before returning to play their next home game against the Brooklyn Nets.

This isn't good news for the Philadelphia 76ers. After the game, Fultz sent out prayers for his recovering teammate. His head coach, Brett Brown, noted his team was not intimidated by any teams in the Eastern Conference playoff race, but the Croatian shared a different viewpoint. In the meantime, the Pacers are just a half-game up on the Pacers for fourth.
