Joel Embiid 'wants green light to play' for Philadelphia 76ers

Joel Embiid 'wants green light to play' for Philadelphia 76ers

Olynyk had 26 points, seven rebounds and two assists for the visiting Heat in a 130-103 loss on Saturday.

Simmons continuously picked apart the Heat's defense, finding open shooter after open shooter which led to 18 made 3-pointers on the night.

Robert Covington #33 of the Philadelphia 76ers reacts against the Miami Heat during Game One of the first round of the 2018 NBA Playoff at Wells Fargo Center on April 14, 2018 in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. However, crucial misses eventually led to Wade burying multiple buckets to seal the game late on. For Joel Embiid, however, the defeat was especially bitter.

Embiid, as he is wont to do, took to social media in response to the outcome of the game. "He [Embiid] just wants to play basketball, he wants to be with his team, he wants to play in front of the fans and he wants to see this through". How limited, and what happens if Spoelstra makes it really limited bears watching - not just for this series, but also as a prelude to a potential move away from Whiteside this summer (if Miami can find a taker for him).

Adding yet another feather to its cap, action thriller film Baaghi 2 has crossed the coveted Rs 150 crore-mark. Apart from Tiger and Disha in the lead roles, Bagahi 2 stars Manoj Bajpayee, Prateik Babbar and Randeep Hooda.

"You're talking about a superstar, of course we are missing him [Embiid] here", Sixers forward Dario Saric said, adding that when he comes back, everyone feels like "he will kick their [Heat] a-s".

For the second consecutive postseason game and 10th in a row overall, the All-Star big man was forced to watch from the sideline while he recovers from surgery for an orbital fracture.

Embiid, who averaged 22.9 points, 11.0 rebounds and 1.8 blocks in 63 games in the regular season, has cleared the NBA's concussion protocol.

Internally, there is optimism that Embiid will return when the series is in Miami, though it's unclear if that will be for Game 3 on Thursday, according to sources.
