Sixers' Joel Embiid Upgraded To "Probable" For Game 3

Terry Rozier Sixers' Joel Embiid Upgraded To "Probable" For Game 3

It appears that Sixers center Joel Embiid will get his wish and play in Game 3 of the Sixers-Heat playoff series in Miami on Thursday.

In case you didn't know.

.

The Sixers headed to South Beach with Embiid unlikely to play due to the orbital fracture to his left eye as well as a concussion.

This is likely the reason why the 76ers do not want to take any chances with their 24-year-old superstar even though Embiid is growing restless.

Brown has stressed that Embiid - who averaged 22.9 points, 11.0 rebounds and 1.8 blocks in 63 games in the regular season - will not be rushed back if Philadelphia falls behind in the best-of-seven series against Miami.

He cleared the NBA's concussion protocol earlier this week and practiced with the team on Tuesday and Wednesday.

Embiid wasn't happy about the loss, saying he's "F***ING sick and exhausted of being babied" in an Instagram post.

And for as great as he is when on the court, the risk of losing Embiid for another month-plus if he were to reinjury his orbital bone may not be a risk worth taking with the series tied at 1-1.

Game 3 between the Philadelphia 76ers and Miami Heat is scheduled to tipoff tonight at 7pm ET.

After hearing Keith Pompey's report, I don't blame Philadelphia at all for being cautious with Embiid.
