    What does Embiid's injury mean for All-Star weekend?

    Joel Embiid was ruled out for the final game of the Sixers' homestand with right ankle soreness. 

    Amir Johnson got the start in his place as the Sixers (29-25) tried to gain footing in the Eastern Conference against the Heat (30-27). 

    Now the question remains whether Embiid will participate in All-Star weekend. He was selected to the Rising Stars game Friday, the skills challenge Saturday and named a starter for the All-Star Game Sunday.

    If Embiid doesn't participate in All-Star weekend, it will mark the second year in a row that he missed out on the festivities. He skipped the Rising Stars game and skill challenge a year ago with a left knee injury.

    Prior to Wednesday's game, Brett Brown said the medical staff will work on a plan "to see what's responsible" and include Embiid's input. 

    "In regards to a definitive this is what he's going to do, that has not been established," Brown said.
