Philadelphia 76ers center Joel Embiid plans to face the visiting Indiana Pacers on Sunday after missing the past eight games due to left knee soreness, a Sixers source tells ESPN's Ramona Shelburne.

Even if Embiid does return to his normal self on Sunday while helping Philadelphia earn a major win over IN, this still won't take away from the frustration since All-Star Weekend over the knee injury.

Embiid hasn't played since the All-Star Game, where he scored 10 points in 23 minutes. He led all scorers in the contest.

Bojan Bogdanovic the way for the Pacers with 18 points, while Darren Collison added 14 and Doug McDermott 10.

The win moved the 76ers ahead of the Pacers into third place in the Eastern Conference. This gives them the tiebreaker if they finish with the same record as the Pacers (42-25) at the end of the regular season.

Only one team can remain hot moving forward.
