Philadelphia 76ers center Joel Embiid is considered questionable to play in Friday’s game against the host Toronto Raptors.

Embiid was added to the NBA’s injury report on Friday afternoon with “Right Knee; Injury Recovery” listed as the reason.

He scored 31 points in 38 minutes during Philadelphia’s 119-109 loss to Toronto on Wednesday.

Embiid, 28, is averaging 27.6 points and 10.0 rebounds in five games this season for the 76ers (1-4).

He is a four-time All-NBA selection and a five-time All-Star. Last season, he was MVP runner-up behind Denver’s Nikola Jokic for the second straight year.
