Philadelphia will play Game 4 in the absence of Embiid.

‘ESPN’ reported on the 22nd (Korean time) that Philadelphia 76ers center Joel Embiid will miss Game 4 of the first round against the Brooklyn Nets on the 23rd due to a knee injury.

Embiid is being discussed as the strongest regular season MVP candidate this season. He posted an average of 33.1 points and was the leading scorer for the second year in a row.

In the playoffs, he averaged 20.0 points and 11.3 rebounds, but his explosive power has decreased somewhat, but Embiid is still an important player in Philadelphia. As the opposing team’s defense focuses on blocking Embiid, it creates many chances for other team members.토토사이트

Such Embiid misses Game 4. Philadelphia is leading the series with 3 wins, but it is definitely not a good sign when considering the upper rounds. Embiid has not been able to digest the playoffs in 100% condition due to the aftermath of injuries in the previous two seasons.

Embiid complained of knee pain while blocking Cam Johnson’s breakthrough during Game 3. Embiid, who had a limp and complained of knee pain, played the game to the end, but did not show as much power as usual.

It was reported that Embiid returned to Philadelphia ahead of the squad to have an MRI on his knee. If there are no major problems, he can return early next week at the earliest, and it is unclear whether he will play in the 5th game.

With Embiid gone, Philadelphia put a heavy burden on James Harden’s shoulders, who was ejected in Game 3. Fortunately, Tyrese Maxi is in good condition, averaging 23.7 points in this series.
