Philadelphia 76ers center Joel Embiid is listed as doubtful for Saturday’s Game 4 in the Sixers’ first-round series against the Brooklyn Nets, the NBA announced in its injury report Friday evening.

Embiid sat out Game 3, a dominant 131-115 win by Philadelphia to take a 2-1 series lead, with left knee soreness.

The status is a downgrade for Embiid, who was listed as questionable going into Games 1, 2 and 3, as he continues to deal with left knee tendinitis that caused him to miss 14 of the Sixers’ 24 games after the All-Star break.
