Joel Embiid out for Sixers’ road trip for load management

Joel Embiid 76ers

The Philadelphia 76ers are taking load management to new levels with Joel Embiid.

The team announced Saturday that Embiid will sit out the team’s upcoming three-game road trip in order to rest his left knee for the upcoming playoff run.

Embiid has missed time this year with lingering knee soreness. It doesn’t seem that this situation is rising to that level, but the team seems intent on quite aggressively protecting their star center. It makes sense, as the team is eyeing a deep playoff run this year, and will need Embiid healthy if they intend to fulfill their ambitions.
