  • Can anyone stop the Warriors winning again

He recently cleared the National Basketball Association concussion protocol.

However, the Sixers will be without their All-Star center again in Game 2 of their playoff series against the Miami Heat on Monday night.

Embiid was a spectator in Game 1 of the first-round series because of a broken orbital bone around his left eye.

Philly got past Miami in Game 1 without Embiid.

He publicly wondered whether she had been promised a Supreme Court seat or to become attorney general to "lay off Hillary". Earlier, US President Donald Trump himself had a few unflattering remarks to make about Comey on Twitter .

The Heat will need to regroup and in a hurry with Game 2 around the corner on Monday. Sixers coach Brett Brown said Sunday that the club does not have a clear idea on when Embiid might return. It seems possible that he could return for Game 3 or Game 4, which are being played in Miami.

He's the first rookie in history to record that many points, rebounds and assists in their first playoff game. He will not play in Game 1 and from that point going forward, we'll figure some stuff out.

The Raptors host Game 2 on Tuesday.

When Embiid does return, it is expected that he will wear a protective mask after doing so during shootarounds.

Names of destructive 2017 storms retired
Hurricane Harvey , which was a Category 4 storm when it hit Texas in late August, directly killed at least 68 people. They will be replaced by Harold, Idalia, Margot and Nigel, which will be used in the 2023 hurricane season.

Embiid's presence made the Sixers a better defensive team. He returned to action and scored a game-high 28 points in the 130-103 rout of the Heat.

Philadelphia has handled Embiid's absence well.

Overall, Philadelphia has won 17 consecutive games.

Rudy Gay had 15 points, while LaMarcus Aldridge and Bryn Forbes added 14 apiece for the Spurs, who fell into the No. 7 seed when they lost their regular-season finale at New Orleans.
