76ers center Joel Embiid will have surgery for orbital fracture suffered Wednesday

76ers center Joel Embiid will have surgery for orbital fracture suffered Wednesday

The latest on Philadelphia's star center after a scary crash with a teammate in their recent game. He was then taken to a hospital for further tests, which had plenty of fans in Philly concerned over his status with the NBA Playoffs approaching. Still, that's a drop from how well Philadelphia has been playing with Embiid.

On Thursday, the Sixers announced that Embiid suffered a concussion and a fractured orbital bone as a result of the play.

It seemed small at first, Joel Embiid was evaluated for a concussion but was only diagnosed with a facial contusion. In preliminary X-rays that were taken of Embiid, no fractures were revealed. His Instagram story showed a short clip of him in a hospital bed with the caption "not good". Fultz was driving around Embiid when his right shoulder crashed into Embiid's head.

As you might imagine, Philadelphia has looked like two completely different teams with and without Embiid on the court this year.

It all stems from this collision with Markelle Fultz on Wednesday night. After the game, Fultz sent out prayers for his recovering teammate. "I was trying to get the ball at the same time I was watching him".

With Embiid, I would pencil in 7 wins. Wednesday's victory over the Knicks was the team's eighth-straight. J.J. Redick finished with 21 to contribute as well.

The Sixers have now won eight games in a row, but have gone 1-2 against James and the Cleveland Cavaliers this season, giving them more than enough reason to try and avoid them in the first round of the postseason.

The 76ers (44-30) have already clinched an Eastern Conference playoff spot.

The 76ers were scheduled to travel to Atlanta on Thursday for a Friday game against the Hawks.
