Philadelphia 76ers All-Star center Joel Embiid will undergo further tests to evaluate soreness in his left knee, including treatment and load management, set to be re-evaluated in one week, according to Shams Charania of The Athletic.

"Evidently, it reached a stage where (Embiid) just felt uncomfortable with it", Sixers head coach Brett Brown told reporters, including Bontemps, following Wednesday's practice. "So he had an MRI on it; there's a little bit of tendinitis".

Embiid underwent an MRI on Tuesday, which revealed no structural damage, and he will undergo physical therapy until he is evaluated again next week. "I really don't. It's a natural dot-connector, but it shouldn't be, to think it had anything to do with it".


"Nobody needs to read into anything here", he said. We'll miss him, obviously, playing-wise.

The two-time All-Star is averaging career highs in points (27.3), boards (13.5), and assists (3.5) through 54 games played this season. The first-round pick in 2016, who had his fourth-year player option declined by the team in October, is averaging 5.8 points per game and shooting 33 percent from 3-point range.
