Joel Embiid Taken to Hospital After Collision with Markelle Fultz

ESPN's Zach Lowe is reporting that Embiid will likely miss two to four weeks recovering from the surgery, which could impact the 76ers in the postseason. He has been put in the NBA's concussion protocol.

While Embiid was injured during the collision, rookie guard Markelle Fultz came away unscathed.

Embiid made his first All-Star team this season and leads the 76ers in points (23.2) and rebounds (11.1) per game.

Weather warning of snow issued for Nottinghamshire over Easter
It was only at the end of March 2013, when Easter fell on the same weekend, that we last saw a white blanket cover the area. Temperatures are predicted to fall as we go through the weekend but for most part it will be mainly dry and settled.

Amazingly, that's true despite the fact that Philadelphia coach Brett Brown has staggered the minutes of his two stars, keeping Ben Simmons on the court more than 80 percent of the time Embiid is on the bench.

Fultz, who just recently returned to the lineup after missing 68 games, accidentally head-butted Embiid on a drive to the basket and the 7-footer immediately went to the floor.

Embiid was ruled out for the rest of the Sixers' 118-101 victory with a facial contusion.

This isn't good news for the Philadelphia 76ers. Based on the timeline given by the team, Embiid might not be on the court for the first round of the playoffs, so that seeding might end up being extremely important.

Next up for the Philadelphia 76ers will be an away game at Phillips Arena on Friday night versus the Atlanta Hawks. "My heart dropped really, because I know he hit me, but he's a tough guy and I know he's going to be okay".

Fultz was playing in only his second game back from a 68-game absence, one caused by a shoulder injury and prolonged by his struggles to regain his shooting form and confidence. Philly is now sitting in fourth place in the Eastern Conference with a record of 44-30, and they're just a half-game behind the third place Cleveland Cavaliers. In the meantime, the Pacers are just a half-game up on the Pacers for fourth.
