Joel Embiid is officially listed as day-to-day with a small lateral meniscus tear in his right knee and didn't play in Game 5.

Doc Rivers is hopeful Embiid will be able to return during the playoffs.

"I don't know when or how early," Rivers said. "I'm hopeful. I think that's a better way of putting it."

Before Game 5, Embiid participated in pregame warmups without any sort of noticeable knee brace under his white leggings.
