I bet he's back by the playoffs or misses the first two games. The Sixers are a different team without him but they should still be fine.

If those first 2 games are home games and they lose they're ****ed.

It's over 3 weeks from when Game 3 of the 1st round will be played. I'm sure he'll have a mask and be fine. And if he can make it in the 2 week window, he won't miss a playoff game.

I know you been ******** on Ball and been wrong/will be about the kid. But Iím rooting for you guys in the playoffs, next year is definitely more promising but yaíll can make some noise this year. Need Joel healthy tho for sure.

we still play mostly tanking teams to finish out so we will be able to stay in the fight for a 3-4 seed. It sucks not having him for the Cavs bcuz thats likely the deciding game for 3rd. Time for everyone else to step up, this is a pretty deep team so im not writing anything off.

He has 3 weeks before the Sixers are early in round 1. He should be fine. He is kind of a beast, so I would guess he sacks up and powers through it

some players are just snake bitten ....

Hope he can come back and play...

Fultz destroying the sixers from within... pretty sure he is Russian

Because he's shown such a strong propensity to recover fast from injuries right?

Hope he comes back in time but part of me tells me the Sixers and Embiid himself are going to be very, very cautious in his return. Don't be surprised if he misses a significant portion of the first round.

are you really comparing a facial injury to his previous ones? fully expect him back before the reg season even ends.

I was thinking of doing that with the Cavs-getting-bounced in the first round stuff he was saying.

10-1 odds, min bet 200 dollars. He wins, he gets 2000, I win, I get 200.

I think Lebron may take Philly of the lost once he leaves this season. They are not battle tested in the playoffs. I'm guessing Houston or Toronto for Lebron.

That being said I do hope he comes back healthy to help the young Sixers in the playoffs. These injuries for JE are starting to get out of hand. I don't see him finishing a full season. Some of these guys should really look at what Lebron has been doing to keep his body right.

what is Lebron doing to prevent his teammates smashing into his face?

Embiid has been fully healthy all season, the worrisome injuries were not a problem. this is just a freak accident and nothing serious.

? he basically just did he's missed less games than most stars have this season this is something with his face it has nothing to do with his previous injuries and says nothing about his overall likelyhood to stay healthy

This coming from someone without much faith in his health
