Embiid was originally listed as probable, and he will officially be in the lineup Thursday vs. the Magic. Embiid is currently dealing with a back issue, and he also left briefly left Tuesday’s game vs. the Raptors in the third quarter with a leg injury. That said, he was still able to have a massive impact in that contest, racking up 29 points, 16 rebounds, four assists, two steals, and two blocks over nearly 38 minutes.
The Magic have started the season at 4-0, but they’re currently listed as 3.5-point home underdogs on FanDuel Sportsbook. Embiid will have his hands full in this matchup, with the Magic ranking eighth in defensive efficiency to start the year.
