Embiid suffered the injury Wednesday night against the Cleveland Cavaliers. He left the game early in the second quarter and did not return.
Without him in the lineup, Philly collapsed and ended up getting blown out by one of the league’s worst teams.
In 43 games this season, Embiid has averaged 23.3 points, 11.8 rebounds and 1.3 blocks per game.
