Embiid says 'pretty good chance' he's back by Game 2 or 3

Can anyone stop the Warriors winning again

The fact that Embiid has cleared concussion protocol is especially encouraging for a return in the near future, but continue to monitor his status over the coming few days.

Philadelphia 76ers' Joel Embiid comes out in a "Phantom of the Opera" mask as he rings a Liberty Bell replica before Game 1 of the team's first-round NBA basketball playoff series against the Miami Heat, Saturday, April 14, 2018, in Philadelphia.

Embiid sustained the eye injury in a March 28 collision with rookie Markelle Fultz.

After missing each of his first two National Basketball Association seasons due to injury and being limited to 31 games in 2016-17, Embiid played a career-high 63 games this season. That game will be 8 p.m. Monday at the Wells Fargo Center. Sixers coach Brett Brown said Sunday that the club does not have a clear idea on when Embiid might return. Game 3 is Thursday in Miami. He will not play in Game 1 and from that point going forward, we'll figure some stuff out.

Goran Dragic, returning to the starting lineup after missing the final regular season game with a sore knee scored 15 points for Miami, while James Johnson finished with 13. I've been able to do everything.

Jordan is "a nice guy, but the Freedom Caucus has been the main source of our problems", King said. Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) talks to the press on the South Lawn of the White House on October 4, 2017.

This is still good news for the Sixers.

DeMar DeRozan added 17 points, C.J. Miles and OG Anunoby each had 12, and Kyle Lowry had 11 points and nine assists for the Raptors, whose only previous victory in the opening game of a playoff series came in the second round against Philadelphia in 2001.

Philadelphia announced that Embiid is no longer in the league's concussion protocol.

Overall, Philadelphia has won 17 consecutive games.
