Is Markelle Fultz the Final Piece in Philadelphia?

  • Philadelphia 76ers' Joel Embiid center lies not he court after an injury during the first half of an NBA basketball game against the New York Knicks Wednesday

Embiid left with 11 minutes, 40 seconds to play in the first half of Wednesday's victory over the New York Knicks after suffering the injury. The 76ers would host a feisty Philadelphia 76ers in the first round.

The news is especially heartbreaking because Markelle Fultz was on the other side of the collision.

Philadelphia 76ers All-Star center Joel Embiid will require surgery to treat an orbital fracture in his left eye, the Sixers announced on Thursday.

Everyone talks about the Boston Celtics plan as well, but the truth of the matter is that the Philadelphia 76ers have higher upside now with Fultz, Embiid, Simmons, and Saric compared to the Boston Celtics with Gordon Hayward, Kyrie Irving, Jaylen Brown, and Jayson Tatum. Markelle Fultz, who was playing in just his second game back since missing almost the entire season due to a shoulder injury, passed the ball into Embiid near the 3-point line. Going forward, it's all about getting (and staying) healthy. But without Embiid, how far will the Sixers fall between now and the end of the season?

Philly was rolling with an 8-game winning streak prior to the injury news on Embiid.

Sitting in fourth place in the Eastern Conference with a record of 44-30, the Sixers are on the cusp of their first playoff berth since 2012 and they need their star center to make any kind of postseason run.

Pittsburgh to hire Duke assistant Jeff Capel, reports say
"I am honored to be named the head coach of the University of Pittsburgh men's basketball program", Capel said in a team release. Capel also played for Coach K at Duke, before starting his coaching career as an assistant at Old Dominion in 2000.

No matter what happens, Joel Embiid always trusts the process.

Among players with orbital fractures, Stotts found players who returned as quickly as after five games - a little bit less than two weeks - and three (Tarence Kinsey, Larry Sanders and Etan Thomas) who missed more than 10 games. He leads the team in scoring and rebounding and is on pace to be the first player in National Basketball Association history to average 20 points and 11 rebounds per game while playing less than 31 minutes per game.
