Embiid has a lengthy injury history, so the Sixers were being cautious to end the regular season, but now it appears that it could be a possibility that Embiid will miss the playoff opener.

"I have no idea", Embiid told reporters when asked if he would be able to play against Brooklyn when the series begins Saturday at 2:30 p.m. ET on ESPN at Wells Fargo Center in Philadelphia.

Brand first said he's "optimistic" Embiid would be ready to play in the postseason opener before admitting that the All-Star center's availability is not yet a certainty. Embiid sat out Wednesday's regular-season finale against Chicago, his fifth absence in seven games to close out the season.
