Joel Embiid could miss two more games with back injury

Joel Embiid could miss two more games with back injury Joel Embiid could miss two more games with back injury

Philadelphia is in a bit of a skid, though only a portion of that skid has occurred with Embiid on the shelf.

The 23-year-old Embiid, who is averaging 24.1 points per game and 11.0 rebounds this season, has missed the 76ers last two contests and seven games overall. Philly had placed itself in the playoff discussion, but dropping games to the Sacramento Kings and Chicago Bulls won't help that postseason push because the team already has a thin margin for error.

Woj reports that "there is optimism" Embiid is able to return for the Sixers' Christmas Day matchup at Madison Square Garden against the Knicks.

That would extend the slump to nine losses in 10 games, so Embiid's return would be both welcomed and much-needed for the Sixers.

Embiid last played on Friday night in a triple-overtime loss to the Oklahoma City Thunder, where he logged a career-high 49 minutes of playing time.

Philadelphia is clearly a better team with Embiid healthy, and the league as a whole is more fun when he's on the court.

Despite his back flaring up, that is-which is the current issue. That Philadelphia seems optimistic at all feels like a really good sign here.
