Philadelphia 76ers center Joel Embiid will undergo surgery on his broken finger and will miss at least two weeks.
Embiid has a torn collateral ligament in the ring finger on his left hand.
“All of a sudden, we’re different,” 76ers coach Brett Brown said. “We’re just different. Nobody’s crying. This is not a ‘woe is me’ moment. We’ll take what we have, and what we have, I love.”
Embiid is averaging 23.4 points and 12.3 rebounds in 31 games. The 76ers (25-14) sit in fifth place in the Eastern Conference through Friday’s games.
