Joel Embiid encountered another left knee injury scare during the Philadelphia 76ers’ Game 1 loss to the New York Knicks. After an awkward landing following a dunk, Embiid briefly left the game before halftime, clutching his left knee.

Despite returning to play in the second half without any major issues, concerns persist about his health. Head coach Nick Nurse stated that shutting Embiid down for the season isn’t under consideration, emphasizing Embiid’s desire to continue playing through any knee issues.
