Joel Embiid clears concussion protocol, remains out for Game 2

NBA Playoffs 2018: The Most Intriguing Storylines in the East's First Round

According to ESPN's Ramona Shelburne, Embiid passed the NBA's concussion protocol, but remains out.

Philadelphia 76ers center Joel Embiid has cleared the concussion protocol but will not play in Game 2 against the Miami Heat on Monday.

Embiid suffered an orbital bone fracture around his left eye in a March 28 collision with teammate Markelle Fultz and underwent surgery to fix the injury.

Durant, Draymond Green and Klay Thompson took charge in Game 1 of the first-round series to elevate the Warriors' intensity at last playing without fellow All-Star and injured two-time MVP Stephen Curry, sidelined since March 23 with a sprained left knee.

The 7-footer wore the mask during pregame shooting drills and would need one in the postseason. Game 3 is Thursday in Miami. Other than a handful of games, he's been the best player on the court.

Ersan Ilyasova had 17 points and 14 rebounds off the bench for the 76ers, who were winning their 17th straight game and had 34 assists on 45 made field goals. "But everything has been going well".

In just his second season, Embiid averaged 22.9 points, 11.0 rebounds, and 1.8 blocks per game while leading Philadelphia to its first playoff berth since 2012. I've been able to do everything. So we got a pretty good chance for Game 2 or Game 3.

Toronto entered having lost an NBA-worst 10 consecutive Game 1s since, including six at home.
