Fantasy Impact:

Embiid, who has continued to miss several playoff games including the last two games against the Heat, has been cleared to play on Friday for Game 3 agains the Heat. The superstar center cleared the NBA concussion protocols early Friday morning but is still dealing with an orbital fracture and a torn ligament in his thumb but will gut it out as the 76ers look to rebound down 2-0 in their series. With the veteran back in the lineup, DeAndre Jordan and Furkan Kormaz will see their minutes decreased.
