Joel Embiid (knee) ruled out for 76ers in Monday's Game 1

Philadelphia 76ers center Joel Embiid will not play Monday in the team's game against the Boston Celtics.

What It Means:

Embiid was listd doubtful, so this comes as no surprise. He'll miss Game 1 of the Eastern Conference Semifinals due to the right knee sprain suffered in Game 3 of the team's sweep over Brooklyn. Paul Reed and Dewayne Dedmon will be tasked with leading Philly down low.

Our models project Reed for 11.1 points, 10.2 rebounds, 1.2 assists and 34.3 FanDuel points across 31.2 minutes of action.
