Joel Embiid is listed as questionable for Sunday night’s game against the Portland Trail Blazers with left knee soreness.
The 76ers center missed practice Saturday here at the University of Portland. Mike Muscala is expected to start against the Blazers if Embiid is unable to go.
“I just learned about it this morning,” coach Brett Brown said of the knee soreness. “He seems in good spirits. I don’t think anybody is too concerned. I think it’s precautionary.”
Brown said the soreness isn’t tied to any particular moment in the victory Thursday over the Utah Jazz. The All-Star finished that game with 23 points, 15 rebounds, and 5 blocked shots in 32 minutes, 33 seconds of action.
