The Philadelphia 76ers showed Wednesday night that they can win a playoff game without MVP finalist Joel Embiid.

But can they win a series?

Head coach Doc Rivers admitted Friday that he likely won’t know until before tip-off whether his injured four-time All-Star center will be available for Game 1 of the team’s Eastern Conference second-round series against the Atlanta Hawks on Sunday in Philadelphia.

But Rivers did reveal some good news: Embiid actually participated in Friday’s practice, albeit on a limited basis, despite the small lateral meniscus tear in his right knee that kept Embiid from the Sixers’ Game 5 clinching win over the Washington Wizards on Wednesday.
