Embiid ruled out of Game 5 with knee injury originally appeared on NBC Sports Washington

Philadelphia 76ers center Joel Embiid will miss Wednesday night's Game 5 matchup against the Wizards due to a small lateral meniscus tear in his right knee, the team announced. He is considered day-to-day, which means he could return if Washington forces a Game 6 and 7.

Embiid exited Monday's Game 4 in the first half and didn't return in his team's first loss to Washington of the seven-game series. 

Philadelphia currently leads the series 3-1.
