DETROIT (AP) -- Philadelphia center Joel Embiid is out for a fourth straight game with a concussion and orbital fracture.

Embiid is missing Wednesday night's matchup with the Detroit Pistons, who are without star forward Blake Griffin.

Griffin is missing his fourth game in a row because of a bruised right ankle.

Embiid had surgery Saturday to repair the broken bone around his left eye. He was injured when guard Markelle Fultz accidentally head-butted him last week against the New York Knicks.

The 76ers are also without forward Dario Saric, who is out with a right elbow issue.
