Joel Embiid (illness) returned 18 points, 14 rebounds, six assists and a triple in Saturday’s 130-111 blowout victory over the Magic.
It’s not quite Michael Jordan’s Flu Game, but Embiid did say he wasn’t feeling great as he was battling a cold. He shot 7-for-17 and failed to collect any defensive stats, but is still flirting with first round value on a per game basis. He looks healthy and scary and owners should be feeling good so far for taking on the risk linked with Embiid.
