The 76ers star has been ruled out for Monday's Game 2 matchup against the Heat despite clearing the NBA's concussion protocol, the team announced Monday (AEST).

Embiid averaged 22.9 points, 11.0 rebounds, 3.2 assists and 1.7 blocks in 63 games this season, in which he made his first All-Star Game appearance.

ESPN's Ramona Shelburne reported that all Embiid had to do to clear concussion protocol was prove he could withstand contact.

Joel Embiid's return will have to wait until Friday (AEST) at the earliest.

"It's about what's best for Joel's health", Brown said.


Monday's game will be the 10th Embiid has missed due to the injury. The Heat will play one more game in Philadelphia before playing the next two at home in Miami. That contest is Thursday at Miami. I've been able to do everything.

It's rare that you see upsets in the NBA playoffs, it isn't as unpredictably comparatively to the NFL or NHL playoffs, heck we've had the same finals for three years in a row. And I feel great. Winning the games played at home in Miami will be crucial to the Heat's chances of advancing to the second round.

ESPN reported Embiid and the Sixers are waiting for the mask to be cleared by the National Basketball Association, and Embiid likely will wear facial protection upon his return.

In Embiid, the Sixers have a big-game player that who excels on the national stage. Philadelphia has won the previous nine and 17 straight overall, counting Saturday's 130-103 trouncing of the Heat in the Eastern Conference first-round opener.

Philadelphia has handled Embiid's absence well.
