The MRI came on Tuesday, revealing Embiid is dealing with tendinitis, but Brown doesn't believe the All-Star Game impacted it at all.

An MRI on Tuesday revealed no structural damage and the No. 3 pick of the 2014 National Basketball Association draft will be evaluated again next week. "It's stuff I think that's quite common, actually". Embiid did look sluggish during his brief time on the court during this weekend's All-Star Game in Charlotte.

The Sixers are 37-21 and in fifth place in the Eastern Conference heading into Thursday's game against the Miami Heat.
