Embiid hurt his ankle in a loss at Washington on Wednesday night. Embiid was one of the final players to leave the court during warm-ups and shot long jumpers wearing “Trust the Process” sneakers.
Embiid leads the 76ers with averages of 26.9 points and 13.5 rebounds in 40 games.
Mike Muscala started against the Hawks.
