Joel Embiid could miss two more games with back injury

Joel Embiid could miss two more games with back injury

Embiid, dealing with a back injury, already has missed four of the team's last six games and likely will miss the next two before potentially returning Tuesday (AEDT) against the Knicks.

Embiid, 23, sat out consecutive losses to Chicago and Sacramento in recent days.

He is probable after missing the Philadelphia game due to illness. Without question, he's established himself as one of the more dominant big men in the National Basketball Association.

The two teams will play Thursday night in Philadelphia and then again in Toronto on Saturday. Tip-off is scheduled for 7:00 p.m. EST.

According to Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN, Embiid is expected to miss Philly's next two games but there is optimism he'll be healthy for the Christmas Day clash with the New York Knicks. There have been numerous times throughout the 2017-18 season in which Embiid has looked like one of the league's most dominant centers when looking at how much of a nightmare he is for opponents.
