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.
