Joel Embiid Diagnosed With a Concussion, Will Undergo Surgery For Orbital Fractureā€¯

Embiid collided with teammate Markelle Fultz going after a loose ball during the second quarter of the Sixers' win over the New York Knicks, and the team announced Thursday that Embiid is in concussion protocol and will require surgery to fix an orbital fracture.

Embiid went to the ground clutching his face on the way down.

Arizona governor, Uber kept self-driving auto program secret
E-mails, however, show that Uber started testing self-driving cars in Arizona several months earlier. The governor's self-driving oversight committee met for the first - and only - time in August 2016.

Few players have made a larger difference for their teams this season than Embiid, who has had enormous impact at both ends of the court.

Philadelphia 76ers star centre Joel Embiid has been diagnosed with a concussion and has been placed into the NBA's concussion protocol, the team announced Thursday. Embiid was averaging 22.9 points and 11 rebounds per game despite minutes restrictions and was named an All-Star. As Sports Illustrated's Ben Golliver noted, with Embiid on the floor, Philadelphia has had the league's best defensive rating and fourth-best offensive rating, numbers that plunge to 14th and 27th without him.

Embiid released a brief video on Instagram late Wednesday night, sharing a message of "not good" while laying in a hospital bed. Embiid and Fultz collided during the second quarter of the game, requiring the big man to miss the rest of the game as he would head to the hospital for tests.

Philadelphia's Joel Embiid had played in 63 games this season, exceeding some expectations. "My heart dropped really, because I know he hit me, but he's a tough guy and I know he's going to be okay". "I was trying to get the ball at the same time I was watching him". This is a huge blow to the 76ers, as they had been lining up to potentially take the third seed in the Eastern Conference with just two weeks remaining in the regular season. After the game, Fultz sent out prayers for his recovering teammate.
