The Philadelphia 76ers are taking a cautious approach to maintaining power.
According to ESPN reporter Adrian먹튀검증 Wojnalowski, Philadelphia’s Joel Embiid (center-forward, 213cm, 127kg) could return early next year.
Embiid is currently sidelined with a right knee injury. Due to his knee sprain, the absence of the 4th game of the 1st round of the playoffs against the Brooklyn Nets, held on the 23rd (hereinafter Korean time), was confirmed. Philadelphia, which has already received the first three games of the series, decided not to force Embiid.
Philadelphia advanced to the second round first, defeating Brooklyn despite Embiid’s absence on the day. As much as I secured time by passing the first gate early, I was able to buy time to manage Embiid. In the 4th game, I got a lot of benefits in many ways by finishing the game without putting him in. It earned enough time until the Eastern Conference Semifinals began.
As the first round was concluded quickly, Embiid is expected to be able to participate in the second round. On this day, even if he lost the 4th game, it may have been unclear whether he would be able to play in the 5th game. However, as he ended the series, he was able to focus on the second round. If Embiid stays healthy through round 2, he should be able to climb round 3.
Embiid played a big role in the first round of the playoffs without fail. He started all three games in the first round and played 36 minutes per game, recording 20 points (.462 .125 .958), 11.3 rebounds, 4 assists, 1 steal and 2.3 blocks. His overall scoring ability was not as good as the regular season, but with the help of Tyrese Maxey and Torbias Harris, he was able to easily beat Brooklyn.
