Joel Embiid is likely to return to the Philadelphia 76ers lineup in the regular season, according to Nick Nurse.

"I think there's a very good likelihood that he will return before the play-in, playoff," said Nurse on Wednesday.

Nurse added that there is still no exact timetable for Embiid's return.

"He's on the court, as you guys know, and we still don't have a timeline for his return," added Nurse.

The Sixers are 10-16 since Embiid's injury and are currently in the play-in tournament.
