ESPN's Ramona Shelburne reported that all Embiid had to do to clear concussion protocol was prove he could withstand contact.

Joel Embiid has been out of action after a concussion and a broken orbital bone.

Reserve swingman Timothe Luwawu-Cabarrot will also miss Monday's game with right knee patellar tendinitis.

Embiid suffered the injuries in March 28 when he collided with teammate Markelle Fultz in a win over the New York Knicks. He was expected to miss 2-4 weeks, meaning he could return close to the beginning of the playoffs or after the first round.

Embiid had surgery on March 31.

The Sixers face the Heat in the second game of their playoff series on Monday night.

Embiid's next opportunity to make his return will come in Thursday's Game 3 in Miami.

The All-Star big man averaged 22.9 points, 11.0 rebounds, 3.2 assists and 1.8 blocks during those contests.

"It's still about what's best for Joel's health", Brown said after practice Sunday.

It's rare that you see upsets in the NBA playoffs, it isn't as unpredictably comparatively to the NFL or NHL playoffs, heck we've had the same finals for three years in a row.

Overall, Philadelphia has won 17 consecutive games. It's all the same thing. Coach Brett Brown hinted that he wouldn't be able to play until then, so his chance of suiting up for Game 2 are looking slimmer than they were a day ago. Redick lost vision in his left eye after a fall, necessitating a trip to the locker room for a checkup.

The Sixers, of course, would defeat Miami comprehensively in Game 1 (130-103). And I feel great.
