Joel Embiid Will Miss Next Two Games After Suffering Facial Contusion Wednesday

Ben Simmons roasted the Hawks while playing PUBG with Karl-Anthony Towns

Embiid couldn't be there to stop his teammate from saying that, as he took an accidental shot to the head from teammate Markelle Fultz and was taken to a nearby hospital, pre-diagnosed with a facial contusion. Embiid left the game and did not return, and spent the night at a hospital.

Joel Embiid will not travel with the 76ers for their upcoming two-game road trip, Keith Pompey of the Philadelphia Inquirer reports.

Embiid was injured in the second quarter when he attempted to set a pick, but his face collided with Fultz's shoulder. Fultz also fell to the court, but he was unharmed and expressed concern for his seven-foot teammate afterward. Embiid did go through tests to see whether or not he suffered a concussion, with it being determined by team doctors that he did not.

Embiid immediately hit the floor as the entire city of Philadelphia held it's breath.

Suspicious packages sent to 4 military installations
A 43-year-old Washington state man has been arrested in connection with sending multiple packages to government facilities. The package sent to McNair, an Army base in Washington , D.C., tested positive for black powder and had a fuse attached.

If that's going to happen, this means Philadelphia will have to overtake LeBron James and the Cleveland Cavaliers, who coincidentally are coming off a tough loss on Tuesday to the Miami Heat in a game they would love nothing more than to forget.

"I was scared", Philadelphia's Dario Saric said of seeing Embiid crumble to the court.

Embiid made his first All-Star team this season and leads the 76ers in points (23.2) and rebounds (11.1) per game.
