Joel Embiid injury update: 76ers star taken to hospital after shot to head

Philadelphia 76ers' Joel Embiid center lies not he court after an injury during the first half of an NBA basketball game against the New York Knicks Wednesday

While at Kansas, Embiid averaged 11.2 points and 8.1 rebounds per game in his one season with the Jayhawks from 2013-14 and shot 62.6 percent from the field.

Embiid suffered the injury on Wednesday night after colliding with the newly returned teammate and 2017 first overall pick Markelle Fultz during the Sixers game against the New York Knicks - Embiid received a pass from Fultz, and then Fultz got too close to Embiid while attempting to run off him on a pick.

Embiid went down to the floor hard, appearing to suffer some kind of head/face injury. So what impact will Embiid's misfortune have on the 76ers and the rest of the Eastern Conference?

The teams have played once this year, with the Sixers winning 119-109 on November 1 in Philadelphia. As Lowe has noted, however, that has been better lately. "Obviously, he's top-three player in history", said Saric, according to Jon Johnson of KYW1060 Philadelphia.

Everyone talks about the Boston Celtics plan as well, but the truth of the matter is that the Philadelphia 76ers have higher upside now with Fultz, Embiid, Simmons, and Saric compared to the Boston Celtics with Gordon Hayward, Kyrie Irving, Jaylen Brown, and Jayson Tatum. The 76ers would host a feisty Philadelphia 76ers in the first round. He is still undergoing tests, most likely second opinions. A Cleveland win in that game would also give the Cavaliers the head-to-head tiebreaker, making it a huge swing for the Sixers.

Philadelphia is now holding on to the No. 4 seed in the Eastern Conference. In the meantime, the Pacers are just a half-game up on the Pacers for fourth. Due to their more hard schedule, BPI projections had IN finishing two games behind the healthy Sixers on average.

Check back for updates on Embiid's status. But anywhere from third through fifth remains a possible outcome.

Since the calendar turned to 2018 Embiid has missed just two games, January 29 against Milwaukee and February 14 against Miami, with the first being the second game of a back-to-back. The timetable Lowe reported matches up well with research by Jeff Stotts of InStreetClothes.com on past National Basketball Association facial fractures that required surgery. Before this announcement, we would hear "at least 2 games". There was no timetable Thursday on how long Embiid would be out. A short difference in severity could make an enormous difference to Philadelphia's hopes of advancing.

Posting to Twitter, Embiid said he would simply "Trust the Process" and teased the idea of him playing in a mask with the hashtag #Two-Face.
