Color me skeptical about the severity of his knee "injury." Sitting out at the end of the season may have been the Sixers "load management" in effect. I've seen some of his biggest games come with that same grimace and body language like someone just shot him in the leg. Did he play like he was injured in these first two games? 22/15/5/4 in 24 minutes and he was dominant tonight as well with more mental focus in keeping his fat ass in the paint rather than behind the arc.Embiid has logged 21 minutes and should be done. With the knee issues, he might only be good for 25 in these playoffs on most nights.
