In just his second season, Embiid has put up MVP-calibre numbers and is in line to make his first All-NBA team.

Embiid and Fultz collided when they scrambled for a loose ball with 11 minutes left before halftime.

Philadelphia 76ers star centre Joel Embiid has been diagnosed with a concussion and has been placed into the NBA's concussion protocol, the team announced Thursday.

Embiid is averaging 22.9 points and 11 rebounds per game this season.

The incident occurred in the second quarter of a 118-101 home win over the Knicks, while Embiid was trying to complete a dribble handoff to Fultz near the three-point line. Embiid fell to the court, then sat up before lying back down.

On Wednesday night, Philadelphia fans anxious over the latest Joel Embiid injury update after seeing the star center collide with his teammate. The crowd immediately reacted as Embiid fell to the floor and lie there for the remainder of the play.

The 76ers were scheduled to travel to Atlanta on Thursday for a Friday game against the Hawks. Both of these seem to be positive news for the team, but his status is up in the air, and Embiid's own post-game comment caused some more concern.

There is no current timetable for his recovery. After the game, Fultz sent out prayers for his recovering teammate. "He's a tough guy". The Sixers (44-30) now own the fourth best record in the Eastern Conference and are likely to face the Indiana Pacers (45-31) in the first-round of the 2018 NBA Playoffs which get underway on April 14. The bad news is one of those playoff opponents is a showdown with the Cleveland Cavaliers on April 6 that could determine the third seed in the East.
