Joel Embiid Questionable Friday vs. Hawks
The 76ers have listed Embiid as questionable once again for Game 3 vs. the Hawks. He’s currently dealing with a small tear in his right meniscus, but he is attempting to manage the injury through treatment and rest. He has been able to suit up in each of the first two games, but the team won’t make an official determination on his status until after pre-game warmups. That said, expect him to be in the lineup barring any setbacks.
Despite the injury, Embiid has played well in his past two games. He’s finished with at least 39 points in both contests to go along with an average of 11 rebounds, 3.0 assists, 1.5 steals, and 2.0 blocks. As long as he’s in the lineup, he deserves consideration as a stud target on FanDuel.
This series shifts to Atlanta for Game 3, and the winner of this contest will grab a massive advantage. The 76ers are currently listed as 1.5-point favorites for Game 3 on FanDuel Sportsbook, and they’re -230 to win the series.
