76ers All-Star center confirmed out for Game 1 against Heat

76ers All-Star center confirmed out for Game 1 against Heat

Despite being without Embiid, the Sixers finished the season with a brilliant 16-game winning streak, hitting full stride and peaking at the right time before their first postseason berth in the last six seasons.

The Sixers' All-Star center suffered a fractured orbital bone in his left eye during a March 28 game against the New York Knicks.

Embiid spoke to reporters about the probability of him playing in the first game Saturday prior to the Sixers' season finale on Wednesday night, as the Inquirer's Keith Pompey wrote.

'Jerry Springer' Ex-Producer Jill Blackstone Arrested for Murder
Blackstone worked as a producer on programs including " Family Court with Judge Penny ", the Daily News reported. Wendy Blackstone died from smoke inhalation and an overdose of alprazolam, a sedative, according to an autopsy.

"He will not play in Game 1, and from that point going forward, we'll figure something out", Brown told Patrick.

The 52-30 76ers will host the 44-38 Heat in the 3-6 matchup on Saturday for Game 1 and again on Monday for Game 2.

Although Embiid has missed the past eight games, the 76ers have thrived with an 8-0 record during that stretch.

Bayern are running out of candidates, Heynckes could stay
With Thomas Tuchel rejecting Bayer, it appears that Bayern are struggling to negotiate with Julian Nagelsmann , too. Both Frankfurt and Bayern had last week denied that Kovac was on his way to Munich.

"I think a lot also has to do with how well the team has been doing without me", he said. Now at the three seed, the Sixers aren't scheduled to see perennial eastern conference powerhouse LeBron James until the Conference Finals.

Simmons, who averaged 15.8 points, 8.2 assists and 8.1 rebounds while shooting 54.5 percent set an National Basketball Association rookie record with 12 triple-doubles and formed a devastating tandem with the other franchise cornerstone, All-Star center Joel Embiid, to lift the team back among the Eastern Conference's best.

There is still no word on if the league will approve the black mask Embiid wants to wear for protection when he returns.

Maple Leafs coach Babcock relying on depth to get past Boston
In the third, with the game out of reach, Boston fans chanted, "We Want The Cup, We Want The Cup". "They were good", said Babcock. At the time of the sweep, Boston was a struggling team having lost six of eight games after the back-to-back against the Leafs.

The way he has played this year, alongside the better-than-expected performances from rookies Embiid and Markelle Fultz, shows how talented this team will be in a few years. Two years ago, the Sixers held a 10-72 record, second most losses in a season, all time. But there's plenty of young (Jayson Tatum and Jaylen Brown) and veteran (Al Horford, Marcus Morris) talent on a 55-game victor that features one of the league's best coaches in Brad Stevens.
