Embiid closer, won’t play Game 2

It’s good news, bad news, good news for the Philadelphia 76ers and their star Joel Embiid.

The good news is that in their Game 1 matchup with the Miami Heat, they came out in the second half and stomped them like a narc at a biker rally.

The bad news? Embiid isn’t going to play in Game 2.

The good news? Embiid is now out of the concussion protocol, so at this point the only thing keeping him out is the orbital fracture to his left eye.

If the Sixers continue to handle the Heat like they did in their 27-point win, Embiid can relax a little bit and show up when he’s good and ready.
