76ers star Joel Embiid (knee) is expected to return on Saturday vs. Minnesota.
ANALYSIS: The MVP candidate has been out of the lineup since going down with a bone bruise on March 12th, but seems to be on track to make his return to the court this Saturday, which would mark three weeks since the injury. Embiid resumed on-court activities last weekend and the 76ers plan to provide a formal update on his availability this coming Friday.
Embiid is averaging 29.9 points, 11.5 rebounds, 3.3 assists, 1.4 blocks, and 1.2 steals per game for Philadelphia this season.
