Joel Embiid, who sat out the first game of the Philadelphia 76ers' 3-game road trip against the Minnesota Timberwolves last night, will miss the last 2 games of their road trip for rest.

Brett Brown said the situation "wasn't ideal," but that the team had to get Embiid ready for the playoffs.

"This is not sort of a reaction to symptoms. It's just load management. Again, we're just trying to be smart and deliver him to play in the playoffs ready to go," added Brown.
