This marks the 10th straight game the All-Star will miss since fracturing the orbital bone near his left eye and suffering a concussion against the New York Knicks on March 28. Whiteside, who played just 12 minutes, only scored two points and grabbed six rebounds in the game.

The 76ers will look to take a 2-0 lead in the best-of-seven first round series against the Heat on Monday. As Philly gears up for Game 2 against Miami tomorrow it's going to have to be without Joel Embiid again.

Philadelphia isn't the type of organization that would allow a player to rush back, but now it can convince Embiid that he's not costing any games on the bench while during his recovery process. "We're gonna see how it feels in the next couple of days". Winning the games played at home in Miami will be crucial to the Heat's chances of advancing to the second round. And I feel great.
