Embiid Clears Concussion Protocol, Won't Play Game 2

In his formal out-on-the-town mask Sixers center Joel Embiid rings the replica Liberty Bell to get the crowd going at Wells Fargo Center ahead of a 130-103 win over Miami in Game 1 of their playoff series

Still, Embiid is on his way back from an orbital fracture whether the rest of the East likes it or not.

The 76ers star has been ruled out for Monday's Game 2 matchup against the Heat despite clearing the NBA's concussion protocol, the team announced Monday (AEST).

Reserve swingman Timothe Luwawu-Cabarrot will also miss Monday's game with right knee patellar tendinitis.

Embiid suffered an orbital bone fracture around his left eye in a March 28 collision with teammate Markelle Fultz and underwent surgery to fix the injury.

When Embiid does return, it is expected that he will wear a protective mask after doing so during shootarounds. It will be three weeks Wednesday.

Israeli PM voices 'total support' for strikes against Syria
However, the long-term effect of the worldwide involvement in the Syrian war may not necessarily be negative for Israel. While Russia is being agitated by the coalition attack on Syria, Israel might be the one to pay the price.

Embiid had surgery on March 31.

The Sixers own a 1-0 lead in the best-of-7 series with the Heat. Game 3 is Thursday night in Miami.

It was the Sixers' first playoff game in five seasons under coach Brett Brown. "We gonna see how it feels in the next couple of days".

Delon Wright and CJ Miles each had big games off the bench, combining for 30 points for the top-seeded Raptors, who snapped a streak of 10 straight Game 1 losses. It's all the same thing. Redick lost vision in his left eye after a fall, necessitating a trip to the locker room for a checkup.

In just his second season, Embiid averaged 22.9 points, 11.0 rebounds, and 1.8 blocks per game while leading Philadelphia to its first playoff berth since 2012. And I feel great.
