Embiid misses Philadelphia scrimmage with calf tightness

  Embiid misses Philadelphia scrimmage with calf tightness LAKE BUENA VISTA, Fla. — Joel Embiid is hurting, and that's a cause for concern as the Philadelphia 76ers get set to restart their season this week. The All-Star starting centre sat out Philadelphia's scrimmage against Oklahoma City on Sunday with right calf tightness, something 76ers coach Brett Brown hopes is merely a minor blip. “I believe we’re just getting out in front of stuff and being smart with it,” Brown said. Embiid has an extensive injury history, has never appeared in more than 64 games in a regular season and missed 21 of Philadelphia's 65 games this season before the season was shut down March 11 because of the coronavirus pandemic.

LAKE BUENA VISTA, Fla. — Damian Lillard scored 51 points after a frustrating finish a night earlier, and the Portland Trail Blazers beat the Philadelphia 76ers 124-121 on Sunday.

It was a day of redemption for the star point guard. On Saturday, he missed a pair of free throws with 18.6 seconds to go and a 3-pointer with 9.5 seconds left in a 122-117 loss to the Los Angeles Clippers.

Portland bounced back and pulled within a half-game of Memphis for eighth place in the Western Conference. The Trail Blazers increased their chances of qualifying for the play-in series, which will start Saturday.

Embiid wants 76ers to play boos during their seeding games

  Embiid wants 76ers to play boos during their seeding games Joel Embiid has a compelling idea to motivate the Philadelphia 76ers during their games inside the bubble. "We need some boos in here," he said on the "Rights to Ricky Sanchez" podcast. "I think that's what gets us going." Embiid's proposal is rooted in familiarity, as the 76ers have heard booing from their fans in Philadelphia in recent months. Their displeasure was even heard during their first game of the 2019 postseason, prompting a postgame response from Ben Simmons in which he told booing fans "to stay on that side."Embiid theorizes that hearing the anger from fans again might help the squad bust out of any slumps.

The Portland Trail Blazers stay alive with a 119-108 win vs. the Denver Nuggets in Game 6. Damian Lillard scores 17 points in the 3rd quarter as he leads

The 76ers lost much more than the game. All-Star centre Joel Embiid left in the first quarter with what the team called a left ankle injury, and he did not return. He contested a shot, then backed up and stepped awkwardly into the stanchion. He had been averaging 30 points per game since the restart.

It was more bad injury news for the 76ers. All-Star point guard Ben Simmons is out indefinitely with an injured left knee.

Josh Richardson scored a season-high 34 points and Alec Burks added 20 for Philadelphia. The 76ers would have moved into a tie with the Indiana Pacers and Miami Heat for fourth place in the Eastern Conference standings with a win.

Without their stars, the 76ers fell behind by 17 in the second quarter and trailed 67-58 at halftime.
