PHILADELPHIA (AP) — Joel Embiid’s status for Game 1 of Philadelphia’s playoff series is still unknown because of a knee injury. The 76ers center remained day to day, and coach Doc Rivers says no decision has been made on the All-Star’s availability for Game 1 against Atlanta. Embiid has a small lateral meniscus tear in his right knee. The Sixers are set to open their playoff series with the Hawks at home Sunday. Embiid did not participate in live drills during Friday’s practice. Embiid was named an NBA MVP finalist. The Sixers are the top seed in the Eastern Conference and will also host Game 2 on Tuesday.
