Hofmann What to make of the Sixers’ regular season? It’s complicated

Well, Embiid is going to need to trust the process of his body's ability to heal, because the star is having some nagging knee problems that are coming at the absolute worst time.

The Sixers finished the regular season with a 51-31 record and are in position to compete for a championship.

Joel Embiid is in the starting lineup for the Philadelphia 76ers in Game 1 of their playoff series against Brooklyn.

The team later listed Embiid as doubtful for Saturday's game.

The Sixers All-Star big man put together averages of 27.5 points, 13.6 rebounds, and 1.9 blocks while shooting 48.4 percent from the field in 64 games this season.

The Philadelphia 76ers will face the Brooklyn Nets in the first round of the NBA Playoffs. Embiid sat out Wednesday's regular-season finale against Chicago, his fifth absence in seven games to close out the season. Due to various injuries, he has played in just 158 total games since being drafted in 2014. Foot and knee injuries have sidelined him for long periods of time, including a torn meniscus in his ailing left knee suffered in 2017.

On Friday, Embiid told reporters that he has "no idea" what his playing status is ahead of Saturday. "That's my experience. We'll adjust if he doesn't play".
