Bill Streicher-USA TODAY Sports

The Philadelphia 76ers will be without star center Joel Embiid for at least another week after he suffered a left shoulder sprain.

Shams Charania of The Athletic was the first to report this on Thurday night.

Embiid suffered the injury Wednesday night against the Cleveland Cavaliers. He left the game early in the second quarter and did not return. Without him in the lineup, Philly collapsed and ended up getting blown out by one of the Association’s worst teams, causing fans to revolt in a big way on social media.

In 43 games this season, Embiid has averaged 23.3 points, 11.8 rebounds and 1.3 blocks per game.
