Sixers' Joel Embiid to sit out against Spurs, Magic

Philadelphia 76ers big man Joel Embiid will miss at least the next two games as he continues to recover from a bone bruise in his left knee, the team announced.

Embiid, who has missed six straight games and nine of the Sixers' last 10, will also not play in Wednesday's game against the San Antonio Spurs and will not travel with the team for Thursday's game at Orlando.

The Sixers said Embiid worked out Tuesday and was scheduled to do so again Wednesday. He last played Jan. 27, when he scored 32 points against Houston.

The Rookie of the Year candidate is averaging 20.2 points, 7.8 rebounds and 2.5 blocks in 31 games this season. The 7-footer has sat out 12 games this season after missing all of the previous two seasons recovering from a pair of surgeries on his right foot.
