Twitter Goes Into An Uproar After News Of Joel Embiid's Concussion, Surgery
Apr 01, 2018, 00:09
Embiid collided with Markelle Fultz during a play early in the second quarter of Philadelphia's 118-101 win over NY, and remained on the ground for several minutes before walking back to the locker room under his own power.
While we won't know a firm timetable for Embiid's return until after the surgery, ESPN's Zach Lowe reported that Philadelphia is expecting him to miss 2-4 weeks, which would finish his regular season and put the opening round of the playoffs in jeopardy.
The standard concussion protocol was performed for Embiid and revealed no concussion was sustained. As bad as it sounds, no matter who were to fill in for Embiid if his absence were to extend into the postseason, there's no replacing the dominant impact the former Kansas star displays most games.
Embiid is the Sixers' leader in points, rebounds and blocks, averaging 22.9 points, 11 boards and 1.8 blocks per game.
Fultz was driving toward the basket 20 seconds into the period when he appeared to accidentally head-butt Embiid. That said, with his history of injury, it's unlikely Philadelphia fans will be entirely convinced of his safety until he's back on the court wreaking havoc on opposing teams.
