He now has no timeline to return, but one report said a return between two-to-four weeks is possible.

Embiid went through the concussion protocol, and it was ruled that he doesn't have a concussion.

Few players have made a larger difference for their teams this season than Embiid, who has had enormous impact at both ends of the court. Embiid was averaging 22.9 points and 11 rebounds per game despite minutes restrictions and was named an All-Star.

The collision took place at the start of the second quarter, with Embiid receiving a pass from Fultz, and then Fultz getting too close to Embiid while attempting to run off him on a pick.

As you might imagine, Philadelphia has looked like two completely different teams with and without Embiid on the court this year.

Joel Embiid had to leave Wednesday night's game against the Knicks early after colliding with newly returned teammate Markelle Fultz.

"Immediately following the injury, Embiid was assessed for a concussion, was asymptomatic at that time, and passed the NBA's locker room concussion assessment tool", the 76ers said in a statement.

Embiid was released from the hospital Thursday but will not travel with the team to Atlanta for Friday's game against the Hawks, the Sixers said.

With the Sixers notorious for playing it safe with their young, injury prone stars, it would come as no surprise if Embiid has played his final game of the 2017-18 regular season.

Joel Embiid tweeted on Thursday to address his latest misfortune.

There is no current timetable for his recovery. "I'm anxious about him, but I believe he's OK". My heart dropped. He's a tough guy.

The 76ers (44-30) have already clinched an Eastern Conference playoff spot. At the moment they sit just a half game below Cleveland for the East's third seed.
