Philadelphia 76ers star Joel Embiid has suffered a small lateral meniscus tear in his right knee and won't play in Wednesday's Game 5 against the Washington Wizards, the team announced.

He'll continue to receive physical therapy and is officially listed as day-to-day.

The NBA MVP finalist was forced to exit Monday's meeting in D.C. during the first quarter after Washington’s Robin Lopez rejected his shot on a drive to the basket.
