Philadelphia 76ers center Joel Embiid has cleared the concussion protocol but will not play in Game 2 against the Miami Heat on Monday. He recently cleared the National Basketball Association concussion protocol. He wasn't cleared for contact activities until Saturday.

Embiid was a spectator in Game 1 of the first-round series because of a broken orbital bone around his left eye. He was expected to miss 2-4 weeks, meaning he could return close to the beginning of the playoffs or after the first round.

Embiid had surgery on March 31.

"Sixers head coach Brett Brown appeared on NBCSN's Dan Patrick Show (h/t NBC Sports Philadelphia) on Friday and said: "[Embiid] will not play in Game 1.

Simmons almost finished his first game in the postseason with a triple-double, finishing with 17 points, 14 assists and nine rebounds.

When Embiid does return, it is expected that he will wear a protective mask after doing so during shootarounds. So we got a pretty good chance for Game 2 or Game 3.

Joel Embiid rang the ceremonial Liberty Bell, and the Sixers made a whole lot of noise as the new edition of The Process began with a resonance that will echo throughout the National Basketball Association. The club is 9-0 without its All-Star center, who averaged 22.9 points, 11.0 rebounds and 1.8 blocks in 63 games in the regular season.

Toronto entered having lost an NBA-worst 10 consecutive Game 1s since, including six at home.
