76ers Joel Embiid released from hospital

Embiid will also have to undergo surgery to fix an orbital fracture of his left eye. However, he later began experiencing symptoms. Will he play again this season?

Joel Embiid took a shot to the head courtesy of a Markelle Fultz shoulder in the second quarter against the Knicks Wednesday and was forced to go to the locker room.

A fan in the sold-out Wells Fargo Center shouted "Don't do this to us". 76ers fans did not have long to revel in the return of last year's No. 1 overall pick before he inadvertently caused a major problem for the team's most important player.

Embiid went through the concussion protocol, and it was ruled that he doesn't have a concussion. But without Embiid, how far will the Sixers fall between now and the end of the season? The timetable Lowe reported matches up well with research by Jeff Stotts of InStreetClothes.com on past National Basketball Association facial fractures that required surgery.

Philadelphia has won eight straight and will play in Atlanta against the Hawks on Friday night. Philadelphia now owns the No. 4 spot in the Eastern Conference playoff race, and has already clinched a spot.

On the flip side of that, the Philadelphia 76ers are set to make the playoffs for the first time since 2012.

Embiid is a big reason why.

Embiid is averaging 43.0 FanDuel points per game this season. Philadelphia's net rating with Simmons alone is a healthier plus-4.2 since the All-Star break.

Fultz was not injured on the play.

"I know I hit him, but I believe he is OK, " Fultz said, per ESPN. Television showed him collapsing in the tunnel on the way to the locker room. However, Embiid might have suffered a fracture to the orbital bone of his left eye, sources said Thursday, adding his eye was kind of caved in. Not only that, but he has to undergo surgery.

Point guard Rajon Rondo suffered an orbital fracture to his left eye in a January 31, 2015 game while playing with the Dallas Mavericks.
