Joel Embiid averaged 22.5 points and 12.5 rebounds in Games 1 and 2 before missing Game 3 in Brooklyn.

NEW YORK (AP)  Game 4 of their playoff series against the Brooklyn Nets.

Embiid missed Game 3 with left knee soreness and was listed as doubtful to play Saturday. But he warmed up before the game and was listed among the starting lineups that were announced just a few minutes before the game.

Embiid was bothered by knee trouble late in the regular season but played in the first two games in Philadelphia.

The 76ers won without their All-Star center on Thursday and lead the series 2-1
