Joel Embiid 2017-2018 Season Outlook

Joel Embiid (back) hit 9-of-21 shots and a career-high 6-of-12 3-pointers on his way to 29 points, nine rebounds, three assists and a block in Thursday's 114-110 loss to the Blazers.

The Sixers blew an 18-point lead and were outscored 42-25 in the fourth quarter, as Embiid couldn't do anything inside against Jusuf Nurkic, who played with five fouls for most of the fourth quarter. Embiid was fun to watch tonight, especially with his 3-point shooting, but the fact remains that he was outplayed by Nurkic in the second half. The Sixers play again on Friday night, so there's a decent chance that Embiid could sit that one out, so stay glued to the news feed today.
 
They play again Friday night?  On their off day?  Who are they playing, Stephon Marbury and the Beijing Fly Dragons?

not so much relevant to fantasy, although i guess it does as it may affect stats?

 

anyway, they were saying during last nights game that Embiid does not practice at all...with the team, jumpers etc...only gets practice during actual game play and only watches tape outside of games....is this real life? how does a team allow this to happen???

Really hope they rest Embiid on Wednesday, since most teams are playing on that day anyway. No need for him to get aggravate his hand injury.

Well, they only play 2 games this week and 1 game next week so this is the time to give him that "Lebron vacation" and take a couple weeks off and only miss 3 games. I'm just annoyed with him right now because I bought tickets to the Sixers/Nuggets game (first NBA ticket purchase in a few years) and he rested.

‏Joel Embiid is also doubtful for tomorrow’s game with a sprained right hand.

 

 

How any1 would draft this dude in the first 2 or 3 rounds ever again is beyond me, he hasn't had a serious injury yet and will have missed a third of his games. 

 

His tag should just be questionable for every game ros.

I benched him after the initial reports.... I feel sick.

This is a complete joke at this point. I live in Philly. The "process pre game" 94.1 WIP reported at 652 pm tonite he was out.
