Joel Embiid out for Game 1 vs Miami

It looks like Joel Embiid’s thumb won’t stop him from playing, but something else will.

According to Shams Charania of The Athletic, Embiid suffered a right orbital fracture and mild concussion in Thursday’s Game 6 win at Toronto, and he will be listed as an out for Monday’s Game 1 against Miami.

According to Charania, there is no timeline for Embiid’s return.

The injury happened when Embiid took an elbow to the face late in Thursday’s game with the Sixers leading 119-90 when the injury occurred and he was already playing through a torn ligament in his right thumb.
