Sixers' Joel Embiid to remain sidelined for Game 2

It's hard to imagine much change to that in Game 2.

However, the Sixers will be without their All-Star center again in Game 2 of their playoff series against the Miami Heat on Monday night.

For their first playoff trip in more than a half-decade, things aren't starting off so bad for Philadelphia.

"It's about what's best for Joel's health", Brown said.

Indeed, her speech explaining British involvement in the strikes on Syria this morning makes a pointed reference to that episode. Some clapped their hands and danced, others drove in convoys, honking their horns. "We're not cooperating with them in Syria".

"We've learned a lot about ourselves playing without Jo [Embiid], and knowing we can compete at the highest level when he's not here", Simmons said after the game.

The Sixers, of course, would defeat Miami comprehensively in Game 1 (130-103). However, should they play similar to how they played in Game 1, it will be very tough for the Heat to even win a game. They have some good shooters. Whiteside is one of the NBA's top defenders and has proven to have the capability to alter and block just about anyone's shot when they challenge him at the rim. We can do nothing about that. It just depends when the 76ers are willing to let him back on the floor. With that in mind, let's look at several other keys as the Heat attempt to turn this series around.

Joel Embiid is ready to return to action after clearing the concussion protocol, however, Philadelphia 76ers head coach Brett Brown will not play him in Game 2 against the Miami Heat as a precaution. But he is still dealing with the effects of a left orbital bone fracture that he suffered on March 28. The 76ers finished the regular season on a 16-game winning streak despite his absence. "But everything has been going well".
