According to matching media reports, the power forward and franchise player of the 76ers, who is currently one of the guarantors for a good start to the season with 21.4 points and 9.4 rebounds per game, must also be one of the top candidates for this year’s MVP award counts, pause for now. With Ben Simmons absent, Embiid’s injury should hit Philadelphia even harder.
Due to the Corona protocol, Embiid is threatened with a compulsory break of ten days if it does not test negative twice within 24 hours. According to the portal The Athletic, players in the Sixers should receive booster vaccinations starting this week.
