Philadelphia 76ers fans can breathe a sigh of relief.
Embiid didn't suit up for Thursday's 115-106 win over the New York Knicks and will be out of the lineup for at least another two contests. Philadelphia faces the Los Angeles Clippers on Sunday, then battles the Lakers in another clash at Staples Center on Tuesday.
The big man suffered the injury late in the first quarter of Wednesday's loss to the Cleveland Cavaliers.
Embiid is averaging 23.3 points, 11.8 rebounds, and 1.3 blocks in 43 games this season.
