Philadelphia 76ers' Joel Embiid needs surgery for facial fracture

Proposal

A timetable has not be determined according to the team, but ESPN's Zach Lowe is reporting that it could be 2-4 weeks.

Bad luck hits Philadelphia 76ers center Joel Embiid as he suffers an injury just when the National Basketball Association playoffs is drawing close.

Fultz, the 2017 first-overall pick, being the player who inadvertently took out Embiid is ironic as he just returned to the 76ers Monday after a lengthy period out of the lineup himself.

Sixers officials said Wednesday that Embiid passed National Basketball Association concussion tests in the locker room and was taken to a Philadelphia hospital for precautionary tests.

Police Officers Involved In Alton Sterling's Death Will Not Be Charged
The confrontation between Sterling and Salamoni and officer Howie Lake II, who are both white, was captured on video . Sterling's family said it would continue to follow through with a civil lawsuit they filed a year ago .

Embiid is averaging 22.9 points and 11 rebounds per game this season. Embiid fell to the court, then sat up before lying back down.

Embiid collided into Markelle Fultz during Wednesday's contest against the Knicks, causing both the concussion and orbital fracture.

Immediately following the injury, Embiid was assessed for a concussion, was asymptomatic at that time, and passed the NBA's locker room concussion assessment tool.

Philadelphia's Joel Embiid had played in 63 games this season, exceeding some expectations.

Israel detains armed Palestinians who breached Gaza border
Earlier, Israeli media had reported that Iron Dome had intercepted a number of rockets fired from the Gaza Strip. Ronen Manlis said in a statement.

Joel Embiid will be sidelined for at least the 76ers' next two games because of what the team is calling a facial contusion.

Embiid was the primary reason for the Sixers to seal their first playoff appearance since the 2011-12 season. After the game, Fultz sent out prayers for his recovering teammate. "My heart dropped really, because I know he hit me, but he's a tough guy and I know he's going to be okay". Philly is now sitting in fourth place in the Eastern Conference with a record of 44-30, and they're just a half-game behind the third place Cleveland Cavaliers.

Philadelphia fans' worst fears might be coming true. "I'm anxious about him, but I believe he's OK". In the meantime, the Pacers are just a half-game up on the Pacers for fourth.

Sea of Thieves Death Cost planned, then dropped
The notes for Sea of Thieves' first big update have been released, an update that's almost 20GB depending on the platform. That would as per the description, have "the Captain of the Ferry of the Damned deduct a small gold fee when you die".
