Joel Embiid (knee) questionable for 76ers in Game 7

Philadelphia 76ers center Joel Embiid is considered questionable to play Sunday in the team's game against the Atlanta Hawks. It's Game 7 of the Eastern Conference Semifinals, and Embiid's knee is still proving to be a problem. It's likely he'll play through it like the last few games - despite questionable tags - but it's a situation that should continue to be monitored. Should Embiid be held out or limited in any way, that could mean more work for Dwight Howard.

Sixers star Joel Embiid fires scary warning to Trae Young, Hawks after forcing Game 7

After helping the Philadelphia 76ers beat the Atlanta Hawks in Game 6, Joel Embiid is ready to go all-out in their do-or-die showdown on Sunday. In his postgame presser following the Sixers’ 104-99 win, Embiid emphasized that there is no way he would play as poorly as he did in the contest. The Cameroonian big man recorded 22 points, 13 rebounds and two blocks, but he shot 9-of-24 from the field (including 1-of-4 from the 3-point territory).

Sixers' Joel Embiid Questionable for Game 7 vs. Hawks

The Philadelphia 76ers' trend of listing Joel Embiid as questionable before every game in the second-round series against the Atlanta Hawks continues ahead of Game 7. Ever since going down with a knee injury during Game 4 on the road in the first round against the Washington Wizards, Embiid hasn't been in the best shape. Considering he suffered a torn meniscus in his knee, the big man has been playing with a significant setback in the postseason.
