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.

Atlanta Hawks star Trae Young has torched the Philadelphia 76ers in just about every game of the Eastern Conference semifinal series between the two teams, but Joel Embiid believes the point guard has gotten plenty of help from the officials.

You never know where the playoffs will take you.

The Philadelphia 76ers were fighting for their season on Friday night in Game 6 against Trae Young and the Atlanta Hawks.

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).
The Philadelphia 76ers might have won Game 6 against the Atlanta Hawks, but Sixers center Joel Embiid is not happy with the way it was officiated.
