Ben Simmons Just Treated The 76ers To A 20 Minute Powerpoint On Australia

Unlike his frontcourt partner Joel Embiid, Dario Saric doesn't feel forced to put up a tough front when it comes to the future of the Philadelphia 76ers.

Fultz was not injured on the play.

Embiid, who passed initial concussion tests in the locker room, has also been diagnosed with a concussion after symptoms developed.

Embiid is the Sixers' leader in points, rebounds and blocks, averaging 22.9 points, 11 boards and 1.8 blocks per game.

Amazingly, that's true despite the fact that Philadelphia coach Brett Brown has staggered the minutes of his two stars, keeping Ben Simmons on the court more than 80 percent of the time Embiid is on the bench.

Embiid was wobbly heading off the court but the Sixers announced the big man suffered a simple facial contusion. The crowd immediately reacted as Embiid fell to the floor and lie there for the remainder of the play. Joel Embiid is out for longer than we were led to believe. Embiid appeared to bobble the ball resulting in him lowering his head trying to recover it right as Fultz came at him at full-speed, resulting in Embiid collapsing to the ground in a heap while clutching his face.

Fultz was playing in only his second game back from a 68-game absence, one caused by a shoulder injury and prolonged by his struggles to regain his shooting form and confidence.

The Sixers were scheduled to fly to Atlanta on Thursday afternoon for Friday's game against the Hawks at Phillips Arena. "All I can do is pray for him".

Earlier on Thursday morning, ESPN relayed the news of the recent collision during the 76ers' game against the New York Knicks. At the moment they sit just a half game below Cleveland for the East's third seed.
