The 76ers have listed center Joel Embiid questionable for tonight's game against the visiting Oklahoma City Thunder due to back tightness.
Embiid was unavailable for comment to local reporters, but after conducting an interview with ESPN, he finished shooting and hit nine consecutive shots from deep range.
After sitting out Saturday's game against the Cleveland Cavaliers for rest purposes as the first of back-to-back games, he was expected to play against the New Orleans Pelicans on Sunday but was unable to go due to back tightness. The Sixers (14-13) lost both games.
Embiid returned for Tuesday's 118-112 overtime win in Minnesota, where he played a career-high 39 minutes and 26 seconds, contributing 28 points, 12 rebounds and eight assists and was a plus-18.
Embiid was the only new player on the Sixers medical update. Justin Anderson (shin splints) and Markelle Fultz (right shoulder) remain out.
