All-Star center Joel Embiid hasn't yet been cleared for full contact, but Philadelphia 76ers coach Brett Brown says there is still a chance that Embiid can play in Game 3 of the team's first-round series against the Miami Heat on Thursday.

Embiid suffered the fracture in his orbital bone in the 76ers' matchup with the Knicks March 29.

He was cleared from concussion protocol on Sunday after suffering a concussion during the collision. Miami has an opportunity to snag a 2-1 lead with another home game immediately thereafter while Philadelphia could swipe back home court advantage with a victory.

After the Game 2 loss, Embiid said on Instagram he was "sick and exhausted of being babied" and revealed he was ready to be told he can play again.

That's thanks in large part to the company's investment in the Model 3, which isn't likely to earn a profit anytime soon. He added that the company needs to make 6,000 units of the Model 3 per week by the end of June in order to meet its goal.

Miami can't rely on Wade's heroics in game 3, and they must get much better play from some of their regulars. He wants to play in front of the fans. "And when he's not able to do that, he gets frustrated, and we respect his frustration".

This game had a similar first half as Game 1, but saw more pressure on Philly's shooters from the get-go.

It makes sense for the team to hold him out in hopes of not re-injuring himself, but it's the playoffs.

She'd put herself in a position, Daniels explained, where it seemed like " more trouble to say no" to Trump's alleged advances. Asked by host Anderson Cooper if she considered the incident a direct threat, she said yes, adding, "Absolutely".

Embiid's facial injury doesn't affect his mobility on the floor.

Absent an Embiid return, the Sixers will need to re-discover their 3-point shot.

After going 18-of-28 from three-point range in Game 1, the Sixers went 7-of-36 from the land of plenty during Monday's loss.

Philadelphia power forward Ersan Ilyasova delivered a double-double in each of the first two games of the series and is averaging 15.5 points and 12.5 rebounds so far. I wish more than anything that I was out there. Embiid took to Instagram with a post that strongly indicated his desire to return, indicating that he was being "babied" by the team staff. "Whenever I'm out on the court, I'm just going to play as hard as I can". Meanwhile, James Johnson added 18 points, seven rebounds and five assists on a flawless 7-of-7 shooting.
