Joel Embiid will play Thursday night against the Heat and will have no formal minutes restriction; only fatigue based.
Embiid will wear a mask that has protective eyewear built into it and is considered to be a "hi-tech" mask. The mask will be stronger than typical face masks and getting approval by the league could be a reason Embiid's status was not updated until late Thursday afternoon. Coach Brett Brown said Embiid will start and the only restriction he has is fatigue because he has not played in three weeks. Process, engaged.
