Is Joel Embiid playing tonight? TV channel, live stream, start time for 76ers vs. Knicks

With one month remaining in the NBA season, the 76ers are anticipating the return of reigning MVP Joel Embiid.

Embiid has been out of Philadelphia’s lineup since suffering a torn meniscus in a loss to the Warriors on Jan. 30. Embiid continues to progress in his rehab and is now six weeks removed from the corrective procedure that was done to repair the tear.

The 76ers have struggled in their superstar’s absence, losing 7 of their first 18 games without Embiid. Making matters worse is the absence of All-Star guard Tyrese Maxey, who suffered a concussion March 3.

With Maxey still sidelined, will Embiid be in action when Philly takes on New York for the second time in three days? Here is the latest on his status.

Is Joel Embiid playing tonight?

The Sixers have not yet submitted an injury report but Embiid is expected to miss his 19th consecutive game Tuesday.

Embiid last played Jan. 30, which is when he suffered the injury after a collision with Warriors forward Jonathan Kuminga. On Feb. 6, Embiid underwent a procedure on his knee and was expected to be re-evaluated in four weeks, according to ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski.

After Embiid’s re-evaluation, The Athletic’s Shams Charania provided a clearer timetable for the reigning MVP’s return to action. “This is a six- to eight-week injury timetable,” Charania said.

“And still the hope and the optimism and the expectation is that somewhere in late March-early April, that’s when the window starts for Joel Embiid potentially to make a return.”
