Philadelphia 76ers swept the Brooklyn Nets 4-0 to advance to the second round, and Philadelphia became the first team to advance to the second round this season, which was the first time that their team swept the Bucks in the second round in 1985. Moreover, Embiid, the core of this game, is still absent. It seems that Harden still has good leadership ability.
After the game, Rivers talked about Embiid’s injury in an interview: He felt a little pain in the back of his knee, and his knee was obviously swollen. We had an MRI examination, and there was no problem through MRI. The results of this examination were not very good.
The probability that Embiid will come back in the second round is only 50% at most, and we are ready for Embiid to miss the second round. (Embiid suffered a sprained knee in G3)
Evan jeffries, a medical expert, analyzed Embiid’s injury. Embiid suffered the same knee sprain in the past playoffs, and it will take him about 1-2 weeks to recover.
The opponent in the second round of Philadelphia will be the winner of Eagle VS Green Kay. At present, Green Kay leads the Eagle 2-1. The two teams played G4 on April 24th. Embiid has rested for two days since he was injured on April 21st, Beijing time.
Once the match between Eagle and Green Kay is dragged into the tiebreak and the seventh game is played on April 30th, Beijing time, then the first game of the second round needs to be played on May 2nd, Beijing time. Embiid rested for 13 days on May 4th, Beijing time, which is close to 1-2 weeks of recovery time, and at worst, he will come back in G3.
Therefore, whether Embiid can come back in the second round depends on whether the Hawks can play more games with Green Kaiduo. Philadelphia fans certainly hope that these two teams can enter the tiebreaker.
The Philadelphia coaching staff has begun to prepare Paul Reid to become the team’s new inside main force. Reid also said in the interview that he is ready and he will support the inside in the absence of Embiid.
