Without Embiid , it doesn't happen. This doesn't make me feel any better about his health; he is still a huge risk. A 0M guy isn't a guy you should have to worry about playing back-to-backs. The Sixers are only gonna go as far as Joel Embiid can carry them. I am 100% comfortable with betting

Portland, which was also happy about 20 points from veteran Carmelo Anthony - the 36-year-old is now 15th in the all-time best list of the NBA basket hunters - advanced through the win except for "half a game" to the Memphis Grizzlies before that. Even as ninth, the Trail Blazers would have a chance of the play-offs and would play against the eighth in a pre-qualification.

Since the restart, Embiid has averaged 30 points, information about diagnosis and downtime is still missing.
