Joel Embiid out against Celtics with finger injury

"We don't have Joel Embiid".

"Simmons would certainly be a special talent. The last time we played against her we had a lot of success, but at the end of the day I'll try to fight it.", but they take care of me, so whatever they want to do ... we'll see.

"Nobody cries. This is not a moment when I hurt", Brett Brown, head coach of the 76s, told reporters on Thursday.

The Philadelphia 76ers announced on Thursday that Embiid has been diagnosed with a torn radial collateral ligament in his left hand. According to ESPN, it was determined that he will undergo surgery and be reevaluated in one-to-two weeks.

"That means if you have to go into space and shoot it, you have to do it". "There's now adjustments as a team that we have to make". We're still finding our groove, we haven't been totally healthy, the whole starting line-up.

"Evidently I have failed, and it's something that we're all mindful of, and this is one of these things that is never going to go away", Brown said.

"I nearly threw up when I saw that", said Simmons.

"This is an adult male shot, this is a mature shot and he is not ready", said Pippen. Embiid reentered the game after spending some time with trainers before getting the finger taped, but further evaluation revealed a more serious injury than previously thought. "He is not the type of player who came into this league as a shooter, he's more a facilitator, a distributor". He can do everything in the game, but he's just not a shooter and it will take a little longer.

Presenter Rachel Nichols said, "It seems insane to give up one of them in some ways", but it seems more likely that Simmons needs a team built around him.
