  • NBA Los Angeles Clippers at Philadelphia 76ers

Unable to take the floor to start the week, the up-and-coming big man has now been listed as doubtful for Tuesday's matchup against the Los Angeles Clippers.

Embiid is the 11th Sixer ever to win a Player of the Week award and the first since Thaddeus Young was honored on January 6, 2014.

The Philadelphia 76ers have a better record (7-3) over the last ten games than these Eastern Conference teams: the Cleveland Cavaliers, the Toronto Raptors, and the Boston Celtics.

The Philadelphia 76ers and the Milwaukee Bucks collide at the Bradley Center on Wednesday night.

Embiid also provided pivotal free throws late in each of those wins, converting 29 of a whopping 41 attempts from the stripe (70.7 percent). Those are the top three teams in the Eastern Conference.

Embiid suffered a knee contusion on Friday. Playing just 25.3 minutes per game due to a minutes restriction, Embiid is now averaging 19.8 points, 7.8 rebounds, 2.5 blocks and 2.1 assists per contest. "You got to give it to my coaches, they've done a great job of preparing me on and off the court for me to be able to succeed". "They haven't really told me what the plan was".

This week he averaged 22 points, 10 rebounds and four blocks per game.
