76ers fined USD50,000 for Embiid injury status violation

NEW YORK (AP) – The Philadelphia 76ers were fined USD50,000 by the NBA yesterday for violating league injury reporting rules in failing to disclose Joel Embiid’s (AP, pic below) participation status in an accurate and timely manner.

Embiid returned on Friday after missing the first two games of the Eastern Conference semifinals against Miami because of a right orbital fracture and a mild concussion. He had 18 points to help Philadelphia win 99-79 and cut it series deficit to 2-1.
