Joel Embiid cleared to play in Game 1 of playoffs

Joel Embiid At Risk Of Missing Game 1 Of The NBA Playoffs: Report

The 76ers have fined Amir Johnson an undisclosed amount for looking at his phone in the fourth quarter of Philadelphia's loss to the Nets in Game 1 of their first-round series.

But the postseason sure didn't start well for the Sixers, as they started Game 1 of their first-round series against the Nets at Wells Fargo Center in embarrassing fashion. The 25-year-old is one of the game's most prolific stars, having averaged 27.5 points and 13.6 rebounds per game in 64 regular season contests. Philly can still play well without him, but they're a Finals contender when he's healthy.

Harris said Brown was a "great coach" but fell well short of giving him a vote of confidence.

Sky Sports are the exclusive rights holders for NBA in the United Kingdom and will be televising games throughout the NBA Playoffs. "Now that we've attracted them into our system, we're going to work really hard at keeping them around for a while", Harris said.

After the game, Embiid told reporters that Johnson had a valid reason as he was checking on the status of his daughter who was "extremely sick".

They told Motherboard that they can indeed access email contents and have shown that publication screenshots to prove their point.

Simmons also blasted the 20,437 Sixers fans for booing the team for most of the game.

"Completely unacceptable", Sixers coach Brett Brown said of Johnson's actions. Ed Davis came of the bench to add 12 points and 16 rebounds in a surprise performance. Unfortunately, they're still unsure if Embiid will be able to play on Saturday. "We tried to play him in five-minute clumps and maximize that, but even that got the better of him from a pace standpoint".

When the 76ers made the trade to acquire Jimmy Butler earlier this season, it was with the playoffs in mind. Team owner Josh Harris said both players could be resigned.

Well, the Brooklyn Nets have done the unthinkable.

"I'll point exclusively to fatigue", Brown said.
