76ers Joel Embiid Clears Concussion Protocol, Remains out for Game 2

Defending NBA champions the Golden State Warriors swept aside the San Antonio Spurs 113-92 to open their playoff campaign.

The 76ers' Joel Embiid has cleared the NBA's concussion protocol, but will remain out for Game 2 of the team's Round 1 playoff series against the Heat, the team announced Sunday.

Embiid has been ruled out for Monday's Game 2 as he continues to recover from surgery to fix an orbital bone fracture.

However, the Sixers didn't have a tough time without him in Saturday's 130-103 Game 1 victory over the Heat.

The Toronto Raptors edged a tight game against the Washington Wizards 114-106, with Serge Ibaka having 23 points and 12 rebounds, while Anthony Davis had 35 points as the New Orleans Pelicans beat the Portland Trail Blazers 97-95.

Philly got past Miami in Game 1 without Embiid.

She said her government "has a plan to transition towards a carbon-neutral future, one that looks 30 years in advance". The industry has said it wants to be consulted before any decision was made.

Embiid suffered a fractured orbital bone after taking a shot from teammate, Markelle Fultz on March 28.

The All-Star big man averaged 22.9 points, 11.0 rebounds, 3.2 assists and 1.8 blocks during those contests.

The Heat will need to regroup and in a hurry with Game 2 around the corner on Monday.

Coach Brett Brown shrugged when asked if Embiid's return, or lack thereof is linked to the success the Sixers have had without them. Redick, Belinelli and Saric each made four 3-pointers apiece and Ilyasova knocked down three.

Philadelphia won 16 straight games to close out the regular season.
