Joel Embiid wears striking mask courtside, goes through shooting drills

Joel Embiid

Markelle Fultz, the No. 1 pick of the 2017 draft who missed 68 games with a shoulder injury, became the youngest player in National Basketball Association history (19 years, 317 days) with a triple-double with 13 points, 10 assists and 10 rebounds.

Embiid, still recovering from a face fracture, expects to sit out game one against the Heat and he has tested a face mask in practice.

With Embiid declaring himself "unlikely" to play in the postseason opener and to remain day-to-day after that, the Sixers will rely on a unit that has won all eight games in his absence.

Likely NBA rookie of the year Simmons played just 22 minutes while logging four points, six rebounds and seven assists. No problem. The Sixers hit 11 3s in the first half and could have celebrated the No. 3 seed at halftime.

Embiid hasn't played since March 28, when he collided with teammate Markelle Fultz.

With four games relevant to Eastern Conference seeding Thursday, the Sixers were not assured of their first-round playoff opponent until Miami defeated Toronto, 116-109, in overtime.

- shot 46 percent on 3s (11 of 24). One thing that is for sure, Sixer fans are quite used to the idea that Embiid may break at any time.

The victor of the series will face the Sixers should they see off the Heat.

Embiid believes there are very specific advantages to wearing a black mask vs. a clear mask, and he told reporters he is going to petition the league to wear his in the playoffs, whenever he decides to return. Head coach Brett Brown put him in a low-pressure situation off the bench while in the midst of a 16-game win streak to end the season. Embiid grabbed a loose ball during a timeout and ran toward a trampoline and acted like he would take part in the dunk show.
