Philadelphia 76ers: Markelle Fultz records his first triple-double in 52nd win

Embiid wore a black mask during warmups to protect his broken bone around his left eye, then changed into his garish outfit to watch the Sixers romp to a stunning 80-44 lead at the break.

Embiid believes there are very specific advantages to wearing a black mask vs. a clear mask, and he told reporters he is going to petition the league to wear his in the playoffs, whenever he decides to return.

Philadelphia 76ers center Joel Embiid is unlikely to be medically cleared to play in the first game of the National Basketball Association playoff series with the Miami Heat.

He stumped for Brett Brown to win National Basketball Association coach of the year, teammate Ben Simmons for rookie of the year and himself, naturally, to win National Basketball Association defensive player of the year.

Embiid, who suffered the injury when he and Sixers team-mate Markelle Fultz collided on March 28, was fitted for a protective facemask an practised at Wells Fargo Center in Philadelphia on Wednesday. It seems like he will be able to rejoin the Sixers at some point in their first-round playoff series.

"I want to play but right now I feel like I'm not ready yet, " Embiid said. "If it was my decision, I would probably play".

"If you look at the numbers, you will see", he said.

Well, in the Sixers final game of the regular season, they once again proved why they are a team to be reckoned with in route to their record-breaking 16th straight victory. "I can rant and rave right now but I don't think that's the important thing". None other than the first overall pick in the 2018 NBA Draft, Markelle Fultz.

The Bucks entered their regular-season finale having won seven of 10 games and occupying sixth place in the East. National Basketball Association rules now allow only clear masks, but Embiid said he will appeal. Some of that was schedule-aided, but they were the only team that ranked in the top five in both offensive and defensive efficiency after the All-Star break. "This year, when I actually do play a lot of games, I don't know what excuse they're going to find next".

Ben Simmons has taken the league by storm in his de facto rookie year, leading the Sixers to their first 50-win season since 2001 and achieving multiple personal milestones along the way. Justin Anderson led the Sixers with 25 points and Dario Saric had 24.
