Joel Embiid jokes about 'freak accident' that led to injury

He now has no timeline to return, but one report said a return between two-to-four weeks is possible. When Embiid goes to the bench, the 76ers have been outscored by 3.9 points per 100 possessions, barely better than the New York Knicks' net rating (minus-4.4).

While Embiid was injured during the collision, rookie guard Markelle Fultz came away unscathed.

The 24-year-old initially passed concussion tests, but after he continued to experience symptoms, he was ultimately diagnosed and placed in the league's concussion protocol.

Embiid is averaging 43.0 FanDuel points per game this season.

Fultz was driving toward the basket 20 seconds into the second quarter when he collided with Embiid, who immediately went to the floor. After laying on the court for several minutes and then sitting up, Embiid was eventually taken back to the locker room with help. He left the game, would not return, and was even taken to the hospital for precautionary exams.

The Sixers announced Embiid suffered a facial contusion on Wednesday night, but have since downgraded their superstar. Here's the latest on Joel Embiid's injury situation and whether he'll be able to play again soon for the Philadelphia 76ers.

The 76ers were scheduled to travel to Atlanta on Thursday for a Friday game against the Hawks.

There is no current timetable for his recovery. "My heart dropped really, because I know he hit me, but he's a tough guy and I know he's going to be okay". Philadelphia now holds the fourth-seed in the Eastern Conference. "I'm anxious about him, but I believe he's OK". The 76ers began Thursday in fourth place in the East, a half-game behind the Cavaliers for third and half-game in front of the Pacers for fifth, with the Wizards in sixth.
