76ers’ Joel Embiid to Miss Next Four Games


Joel Embiid will miss the next four games due to his knee injury, and the franchise center says he wasn’t thrilled that the Philadelphia 76ers initially classified him as day-to-day.

Embiid has missed eight straight games with a bone bruise in his left knee. A recent MRI also revealed Embiid has a slight tear in his meniscus. “I wasn’t too happy with the way it was kind of handled before, as far as the day-to-day part,” Embiid told reporters in Philadelphia after participating in practice on Thursday. “I was told that I was going to miss at least two or three weeks, so I wasn’t happy with the way it was handled.
