Joel Embiid (left Knee) Out Tonight, Doubtful for Following 2 Games

Joel Embiid is out for tonight's make-up game against the Kings, and the left knee contusion that has caused him to miss time recently will also keep him out for a pair of road games later this week.

Embiid will not travel with the Sixers to face the Dallas Mavericks and San Antonio Spurs on Wednesday and Thursday. The team is listing him as doubtful for those games, but obviously he won't play if he doesn't travel.

After that Texas two-step, the Sixers travel to Miami to face the Heat on Saturday. Embiid's status for that game is to be determined.
