Embiid out for Game 2 per reports

Joe Ingles makes the Utah Jazz a must-watch team for Aussie basketball fans

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

No exact timetable was given for his return, but Embiid will wear a protective mask when he returns to the court.

Ben Simmons is not known as a big talker, so his demeanour before the Philadelphia 76ers' demolition of the Miami Heat took his team-mates by surprise.

Toronto Raptors beat the Washington Wizards 114-106 to snap a 10-game losing streak in play-off series openers. On one side, you have a third seed Philadelphia team whose best players are a rookie and a now injured sophomore, expected to barely clinch the eighth seed before the season began. He said if teams sag off him it makes easier for him to drive to the rim. The All-Star center has been hopeful he can return early in the series.

The 76ers host Game 2 on Monday night, with Game 3 set for Thursday night in Miami.

Jrue Holiday scored 21 points, Nikola Mirotic collected 16 points and 11 rebounds, and Rajon Rondo contributed six points, eight rebounds and 17 assists for the sixth-seeded Pelicans.

The Heat (6) are hoping their centers, Hassan Whiteside and rookie rebounding extraordinaire Bam Adebayo, can take advantage of Embiid's absence. Pacific Time every morning since May 2013 - I feel a near-possessed desire to educate people on what led to The Process so they can fully appreciate it.
