There’s optimism that Embiid’s ankle injury isn’t serious and that he’ll be back soon, Wojnarowski also noted.

The team says he will be undergoing treatment and will be re-evaluated later tonight at the team’s practice.

In addition to Embiid, Josh Richardson will also be out for the team’s game on Aug. 11, as he will be rested.
