• Joel Embiid
    C, Philadelphia Sixers

    Joel Embiid has been upgraded to probable for Thursday's game based on NBA's latest internal injury report.

    Embiid was lobbying all day to play in Thursday's game and is why he was left as doubtful instead of out. It seems like he may have won his case. The Sixers have not confirmed the status change but we will update you with any more information. This is a game changer as Embiid is one of the most impactful players in the league right now. If Embiid does play it will also most likely engage Hassan Whiteside as the two have had their personal differences. The Sixers are a scary team when healthy.
