76ers C reportedly upgraded to probable for Game 3

76ers C reportedly upgraded to probable for Game 3

The change came just hours before Game 3's 7 p.m. ET tip-off in Miami.

Embiid (eye) will play and start during Thursday's Game 3 against the Heat, Keith Pompey of The Philadelphia Inquirer reports.

Embiid has missed Philadelphia's last 10 games while recovering from a concussion and surgery to fix a fractured orbital bone around his left eye. He has missed 10 straight games due to the injury. Charania adds that Embiid will likely wear a mask and goggles, although there has been no word from the National Basketball Association if the league has approved the black mask Embiid has been training in.

"The 24-year-old expressed frustrations on his Instagram account over not being able to play after Monday's loss, saying he was "(expletive) exhausted of being babied". Sources say the facial injuries Embiid suffered included a severe mid-face and orbital fracture that required a complex surgery. The mask is dark in color but translucent.

"We like what we have seen over the past few days", Brown said.

The Miami Heat split its first two NBA Playoff games at Philadelphia.

Embiid wore his protective mask and went through practice Wednesday, getting used to contact again. "He is as driven and as competitive as any player that I've been around".

Embiid likely had to convince the Sixers' training staff to let him play through the injury despite the possibility of re-injury.

The former No. 3 overall pick averaged 22.9 points, 11.0 rebounds and 1.8 blocks per game in a career-high 63 appearances during the regular season.
