Analysis: Embiid missed his first two NBA seasons with a foot injury. He played in 31 games this season, averaging 20.2 points and 7.8 rebounds per game but hasn't played since Jan. 27, when he scored 32 points in a loss to the Houston Rockets.

"The assessment of Monday's follow-up MRI of Joel Embiid's left knee appears to reveal that the area affected by the bone bruise has improved significantly, while the previously identified meniscus tear appears more pronounced in this most recent scan," Sixers chief medical director Dr. Jonathan Glashow said Wednesday.
Analysis: Embiid had played once since Jan. 21. He averaged 20.2 points, 7.8 rebounds and 2.45 blocks in 31 games.

Analysis: Embiid played 28 minutes which is right about where he usually is so the 76ers weren't overly cautious with their franchise player.
Jan. 17 10:20 AM PT11:20 AM MT12:20 PM CT1:20 PM ET18:20 GMT2:20 11:20 AM MST1:20 PM EST22:20 UAE19:2013:20 ET12:20 PM CTNaN:� - After he was questionable to play due to an illness, Embiid showed no adverse affects as he had 26 points and nine rebounds in Wednesday's win over Toronto.
Analysis: Embiid, who sat out practice Tuesday and missed Wednesday's shootaround with the flu, scored at least 20 points for the 10th consecutive game and fell just short of his ninth double-double of the season. He'll play Friday against Portland, but will sit out Saturday's game at Atlanta.
Jan. 16 2:28 PM PT3:28 PM MT4:28 PM CT5:28 PM ET22:28 GMT6:28 3:28 PM MST5:28 PM EST2:28 UAE (+1)23:2817:28 ET4:28 PM CTNaN:� - Embiid scored 12 of his 22 points in the fourth quarter Monday and contributed 12 rebounds and five blocks to help the 76ers beat the Bucks 113-104.

Jan. 12 9:16 AM PT10:16 AM MT11:16 AM CT12:16 PM ET17:16 GMT1:16 10:16 AM MST12:16 PM EST21:16 UAE18:1612:16 ET11:16 AM CTNaN:� - Embiid (ankle) played in Friday's game against the Hornets after not practicing Thursday as a precaution. He had 24 points, eight rebounds and three blocks to lead the 76ers to their third straight victory.

Analysis: Embiid's minutes were limited because he was dealing with a sickness. He has scored at least 23 in five straight while adding 7.4 rebounds. Embiid also is getting to the stripe with regularity, shooting 48 of 55 during that span.
Jan. 5 8:41 AM PT9:41 AM MT10:41 AM CT11:41 AM ET16:41 GMT0:41 9:41 AM MST11:41 AM EST20:41 UAE17:4111:41 ET10:41 AM CTNaN:� - Embiid (illness) participated in Friday's shootaround will play in that night's game at Boston.

Analysis: Embiid was named before the game the Eastern Conference rookie of the month for the second time this season. Embiid averaged 20 points, seven rebounds and two blocks in 10 games - numbers that could be even better had the Sixers not placed minutes restrictions on him and held him out in at least one game of back-to-backs.
Dec. 30 8:33 PM PT9:33 PM MT10:33 PM CT11:33 PM ET4:33 GMT12:33 9:33 PM MST11:33 PM EST8:33 UAE05:3323:33 ET10:33 PM CTNaN:� - Embiid returned after sitting out Thursday's loss in Utah to score 23 points and hit key free throws down the stretch.

Analysis: That's the third time in four games Embiid has put up at least 25, and another star big man took notice Monday. ''That kid is special, man,'' DeMarcus Cousins said. ''All jokes aside, I really think he's a good player. This is my first time ever interacting with Embiid and also feeling how physical he is as well. His talent is through the roof. Once he gets a better understanding of the game, it's going to be scary.''
Dec. 23 8:18 PM PT9:18 PM MT10:18 PM CT11:18 PM ET4:18 GMT12:18 9:18 PM MST11:18 PM EST8:18 UAE05:1823:18 ET10:18 PM CTNaN:� - Embiid continued his case for Rookie of the Year with 27 points on 8-of-15 shooting, seven rebounds and two blocks in Friday's loss in Phoenix.
Analysis: Embiid leads all rookies in scoring (18.4), rebounds (7.4) and blocks (2.4) while averaging just 24.5 minutes per game.
Dec. 19 9:31 PM PT10:31 PM MT11:31 PM CT12:31 AM ET5:31 GMT13:31 10:31 PM MST12:31 AM EST9:31 UAE06:310:31 ET11:31 PM CTNaN:� - Embiid delivered the most dominant performance of his young career Sunday against Brooklyn. The 22-year-old center racked up a personal-best 33 points on 12-of-17 shooting along with 10 rebounds and three blocks in just 27 minutes.
Analysis: Embiid had entered the game in a bit of a slump, having shot only 36 percent from the field while averaging 13.5 points over his previous four contests. With the Sixers beginning to ease his playing time restrictions, the arrow is definitely pointing up for the oft-injured big man.
Dec. 15 9:16 AM PT10:16 AM MT11:16 AM CT12:16 PM ET17:16 GMT1:16 10:16 AM MST12:16 PM EST21:16 UAE18:1612:16 ET11:16 AM CTNaN:� - Despite being listed as questionable with a sore knee, Embiid played a career-high 29 minutes in the Sixers' loss to the Lakers on Friday. The fragile center had 15 points but missed 9 of 15 field goal attempts and 5 of 8 foul shots.
Analysis: The minutes count is encouraging, though Embiid hasn't been in a great rhythm lately. The promising young center has shot just 36 percent while averaging a so-so 13.5 points and 5.3 rebounds over his last four games.
Dec. 10 9:46 AM PT10:46 AM MT11:46 AM CT12:46 PM ET17:46 GMT1:46 10:46 AM MST12:46 PM EST21:46 UAE18:4612:46 ET11:46 AM CTNaN:� - Embiid will play Wednesday after missing Sunday's game against the Pistons due to some inflammation in his right elbow.
Analysis: The 76ers are being cautious with their young big man, who has been sitting in one of the team's back-to-back games as he recovers from foot surgery.
Dec. 8 7:23 PM PT8:23 PM MT9:23 PM CT10:23 PM ET3:23 GMT11:23 8:23 PM MST10:23 PM EST7:23 UAE (+1)04:2322:23 ET9:23 PM CTNaN:� - Embiid shot just 5 of 15 on Thursday but still filled the stat sheet nicely with 14 points, seven rebounds, four blocks and three steals.
Analysis: It's hard to count on Embiid fantasy-wise considering he's only played every other game in the past two weeks due to his ongoing recovery from foot surgery. However, he has great potential at the center spot if he plays consistently, having averaged 19.6 points and 7.6 boards over his last seven games.
Dec. 5 6:05 PM PT7:05 PM MT8:05 PM CT9:05 PM ET2:05 GMT10:05 7:05 PM MST9:05 PM EST6:05 UAE (+1)03:0521:05 ET8:05 PM CTNaN:� - Embiid finished with 16 points and a season-high five blocks Monday.
Analysis: Embiid returned after sitting out Saturday's 107-106 loss to Boston, the seventh game he has missed this season due to the team's rehab plan not to play him on back-to-back nights after he was sidelined for his first two seasons with a foot injury. The 7-foot-2 center will not make the trip to Memphis, where the 76ers will play on Tuesday night.
Dec. 3 3:32 PM PT4:32 PM MT5:32 PM CT6:32 PM ET23:32 GMT7:32 4:32 PM MST6:32 PM EST3:32 UAE (+1)00:3218:32 ET5:32 PM CTNaN:� - Embiid will be held out of Saturday's game against Boston for rest purposes.
Analysis: The Sixers played Friday and have yet to let the fragile center go on back-to-back nights. Embiid will be fine for Monday's matchup against Denver, while Jalil Okafor gets a fantasy boost for the Boston game.
Dec. 2 5:46 PM PT6:46 PM MT7:46 PM CT8:46 PM ET1:46 GMT9:46 6:46 PM MST8:46 PM EST5:46 UAE (+1)02:4620:46 ET7:46 PM CTNaN:� - Embiid had 25 points, 10 rebounds and four assists Friday.
Analysis: Embiid, who missed all of his first two NBA seasons because of multiple foot surgeries after getting picked third overall in the 2014 draft, shot 10 for 21 from the field and 3 for 5 from 3-point range in 27 minutes. He had his minutes restriction increased from 24 to 28 two days after being named the NBA's Eastern Conference Rookie of the Month for October/November.
Nov. 27 12:45 PM PT1:45 PM MT2:45 PM CT3:45 PM ET20:45 GMT4:45 1:45 PM MST3:45 PM EST0:45 UAE (+1)21:4515:45 ET2:45 PM CTNaN:� - Embiid had 22 points, nine rebounds, four assists and three blocks Sunday.

Analysis: The performance comes two days after the 2014 No. 3 overall pick tallied a career-high 26 points in a win over Phoenix. Embiid, averaging 18.4 points during what's technically his rookie season, also went 7 of 9 from the foul line and is shooting a notable 77.9 percent from the charity stripe.
Nov. 19 2:20 PM PT3:20 PM MT4:20 PM CT5:20 PM ET22:20 GMT6:20 3:20 PM MST5:20 PM EST2:20 UAE (+1)23:2017:20 ET4:20 PM CTNaN:� - The Sixers weren't even sure Embiid would play Saturday due to a sore ankle, but he ended up scoring a career-high 26 points in just 24 minutes.
Analysis: "I felt great," said Embiid, who shot 9 of 14 and grabbed seven rebounds. The 7-foot-2 center had sprained his ankle on Thursday. He's already missed four games to rest and is on a minutes restriction as the Sixers ease him back after two lost seasons with two surgeries on his right foot.
Nov. 14 7:13 PM PT8:13 PM MT9:13 PM CT10:13 PM ET3:13 GMT11:13 8:13 PM MST10:13 PM EST7:13 UAE (+1)04:1322:13 ET9:13 PM CTNaN:� - Embiid had 13 points and matched a season high with 10 rebounds Monday in a loss to Houston.
Analysis: Embiid, who returned after sitting out the last game to rest, made his first road appearance of the season after starting six games, all in Philadelphia. He's averaging 18.0 points and 7.3 rebounds and is a bright spot in another dismal season for Philly.
Nov. 11 6:22 PM PT7:22 PM MT8:22 PM CT9:22 PM ET2:22 GMT10:22 7:22 PM MST9:22 PM EST6:22 UAE (+1)03:2221:22 ET8:22 PM CTNaN:� - Embiid scored 16 of his season-high 25 points in the fourth quarter and overtime, including the go-ahead three-point play with 55.1 seconds left in the extra session, as the 76ers beat the Pacers 109-105 on Friday for their first victory of the season.
Analysis: Embiid did not play in Wednesday's overtime loss to Indiana and is also expected to be held out of Saturday's game in Atlanta.

Analysis: Embiid scored seven points in the final 2:39 of the third quarter to pull the Sixers within 82-80. His fourth 3-pointer with four seconds remaining cut the advantage to two and ignited the raucous crowd with chants of "Trust The Process!"
