The Philadelphia 76ers were unable to complete a first-round sweep over the Washington Wizards in Game 4 on Monday night. They also lost more than the game. All-Star center Joel Embiid left late in the first quarter after taking a hard fall on a drive to the basket. Embiid went up toward the rim and was blocked by Robin Lopez, and Embiid came down hard on his right heel and then fell onto his back. He spent the entirety of the second quarter back in the locker room, and at halftime he was ruled out by the Sixers for the remainder of the game with right knee soreness. The Wizards went on to win 122-114 to keep their slim playoff hopes alive.
Embiid, who underwent an MRI on Tuesday, will be listed as doubtful for Game 5 Wednesday night, according to ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski. He is expected to undergo further evaluation over the next day. You can see the play where the injury occurred below:
