Joel Embiid ruled out for Sixers' road trip with unclear prognosis

He was later diagnosed with a concussion, and after undergoing a CT scan, an orbital fracture was revealed on his left eye.

Embiid collided with Markelle Fultz during a play early in the second quarter of Philadelphia's 118-101 win over NY, and remained on the ground for several minutes before walking back to the locker room under his own power.

It just hasn't been Markelle Fultz's year.

The Sixers were scheduled to fly to Atlanta on Thursday afternoon for Friday's game against the Hawks at Phillips Arena. Only two games into his return from a perplexingly long absence, the 76ers guard accidentally knocked heads with teammate Joel Embiid, sending Philadelphia's star center to the hospital. They also said that Embiid does have a concussion. His Instagram story showed a short clip of him in a hospital bed with the caption "not good". Before exiting, Embiid recorded five points and three rebounds in nine minutes.

And the Pentagon had been quietly looking to see if there is a four-star military job suited for McMaster, these officials said. An official said the blowback over Trump's call to Russian President Vladimir Putin on his reelection sped up the announcement.

Immediately following the injury, Embiid passed the NBA's locker room concussion assessment tool.

"I know I hit him, but I believe he is okay", Fultz said (via USA Today). His head coach, Brett Brown, noted his team was not intimidated by any teams in the Eastern Conference playoff race, but the Croatian shared a different viewpoint. "My heart dropped. He's a tough guy". Markelle Fultz, who was playing in just his second game back since missing almost the entire season due to a shoulder injury, passed the ball into Embiid near the 3-point line. "All I can do is pray for him". Philadelphia swept the regular-season series, winning all four games.

Fultz, the No. 1 overall pick in last June's draft, played for the second straight game after sitting out for most of the season while recovering from a shoulder injury.
