. @ramonashelburne on Joel Embiid playing through injuries (via NBA Today). “He told me after this game in New Orleans, he couldn’t walk for two days.” 😳 (via NBA Today)

What’s the buzz on Twitter?

Noah Levick @NoahLevick
For Sixers-Pistons tomorrow, Joel Embiid (right knee soreness) and Shake Milton (right ankle sprain) are listed as questionable.
Ben Simmons (personal reasons) and Grant Riller (left knee injury recovery) are still out. – 4:31 PM

Ian Begley @IanBegley
We’re only four games into the season, but NYK’s win over PHI may have revealed something significant about the group. Talked about that, Tom Thibodeau’s tech & a note on Joel Embiid w/@emacSNY (**NYR fans: Eamon also has a great interview w/Mark Messier) pic.twitter.com/2REVNlagsw11:10 AM

“I’m gonna keep pushing and hope for the best”
Joel Embiid is not using his knee injury as an excuse for the slow start on offense #Sixers sixerswire.usatoday.com/2021/10/26/six… via @SixersWire9:56 AM

Jon Johnson @jonjohnsonwip
Embiid; knee, or out of shape?
Avoiding physical play speaks to one, while Rivers playing him, down 20, with four minutes remaining speaks to another. – 6:44 AM

Ky Carlin @Ky_Carlin
Joel Embiid will not use his knee injury as an excuse after the loss to the Knicks tonight #Sixers sixerswire.usatoday.com/2021/10/26/six… via @SixersWire #NBA10:53 PM

Yaron Weitzman @YaronWeitzman
Joel Embiid was asked whether his sore knee affected him tonight: “I mean, that’s not an excuse, but I don’t think I’ve played like this (this early in the season) in any stretch of my career. This is not an excuse but I gotta keep pushing and hope for the best.” – 10:30 PM

Joel Embiid on his knee: “It’s not an excuse. I’m just gonna push through.” #Sixers10:14 PM

Ian Begley @IanBegley
Kemba Walker led NYK with 19 points (5-for-11 from beyond the arc) in win over PHI. Five Knicks were in double figures. Club shot 43 percent from beyond the arc and held Joel Embiid to 14 points on 2-for-7 shooting. Solid bounce back for NYK after Sunday’s loss to ORL. – 10:04 PM

Derek Bodner @DerekBodnerNBA
Sixers fall to Knicks 112-99, falling to 2-2 on the season. That ends the Sixers 15 game winning streak against the Knicks.
Embiid had a dreadful game, the Knicks shot the ever living heck out of the ball in the second quarter, and the Sixers never got close after that. – 9:52 PM

Brian Geltzeiler @hoopscritic
The strength that Mitchell Robinson added in the off-season is playing a big role in him effectively playing defense vs Joel Embiid – 9:38 PM

Ky Carlin @Ky_Carlin
Doc Rivers is challenging the foul call on Joel Embiid #Sixers9:38 PM

David Morrow @_DavidMorrow
Did the broadcast just call Embiid “Simmons?” – 9:35 PM

Kyle Neubeck @KyleNeubeck
Honestly, Sixers had an outlier bad quarter and otherwise have been mostly fine tonight, save for Embiid continuing to shoot the ball like crap to start the year. Happens during a long season – 9:24 PM

Ky Carlin @Ky_Carlin
Every time Joel Embiid falls, the entire city of Philadelphia holds their breath – 9:02 PM

Keith Pompey @PompeyOnSixers
Embiid checks back into the game following the timeout. – 8:52 PM

Keith Pompey @PompeyOnSixers
Embiid is up and walked over to the bench: – 8:51 PM

Tim Bontemps @TimBontemps
Joel Embiid is down holding his face after catching an inadvertent elbow from Mitchell Robinson on that last play. He’s been down for a bit now. – 8:51 PM

Michael C. Wright @mikecwright
Embiid caught a little elbow at the end of that play it appears. – 8:50 PM

Ky Carlin @Ky_Carlin
Joel Embiid is down after blocking that dunk attempt – 8:50 PM

Keith Pompey @PompeyOnSixers
Embiid is down – 8:50 PM

Brian Mahoney @briancmahoney
Joel Embiid, who has never lost to the Knicks, just had his first basket of the game early in the third quarter. – 8:49 PM

Gina Mizell @ginamizell
Joel Embiid’s first field goal comes early in the third quarter. He’s 1-of-6 from the floor (but is 9-of-10 from the FT line). – 8:49 PM

Keith Pompey @PompeyOnSixers
Embiid just made his first basket. – 8:49 PM

Tommy Beer @TommyBeer
NY up 62-42 on Philly
10 Knicks played in the first half and all 10 have at least one made FG.
Joel Embiid has zero made FGs (0-for-5)
Kemba with a team-high 10 points
Obi changed the game when he checked in. He only logged 6 mins, but NY outscored Philly by 13 in his 6 mins – 8:36 PM

Ky Carlin @Ky_Carlin
Joel Embiid is 0/5 at the half, but he’s 9/10 from the foul line. He also has 4 rebounds and 2 assists. #Sixers8:36 PM

Keith Pompey @PompeyOnSixers
#Knicks shot 62.5% on threes. They were making them like they were layups. New York is up 62-42 at the half. Embiid is 0-5 and Korkmaz are both from the field. Knicks lead 30-10 in bench points. – 8:35 PM

Gina Mizell @ginamizell
Halftime: Knicks 62, Sixers 42. New York absolutely dominated the second quarter, outscoring Philly 39-16. The Knicks are 10-of-16 from 3-point range, while the Sixers are 2-of-15. Harris has 11 points, 7 rebounds and 3 assists. Embiid is 0-of-5from the floor. – 8:33 PM

Fred Katz @FredKatz
Halftime. Knicks lead the 76ers 62-42.
• Walker 10-3-2
• Rose 9 pts
• Randle 5-8-3
• Harris 11-7-3
• Embiid 9-4-2
Knicks won the second quarter 39-16. They’re 10-for-16 from 3-point land. – 8:32 PM

Stefan Bondy @SBondyNYDN
Joel Embiid playing like he ate too much Chik Filet and Shirley Temples. – 8:29 PM

Yaron Weitzman @YaronWeitzman
Kemba Walker hitting pull-up 3s over a dropping Embiid where have we seen this before??? – 8:28 PM

Nate Duncan @NateDuncanNBA
Embiid is also causing major problems on Randle’s drives. He’s looking past whoever is defending him to see Embiid at the rim. – 8:22 PM

Nate Duncan @NateDuncanNBA
Mitchell Robinson just doesn’t have the experience to deal with Embiid when he faces up. – 8:21 PM

Gina Mizell @ginamizell
End 1Q: Sixers 26, Knicks 23. Neither team is shooting the ball well (Sixers are 8-of-22 and Knicks are 7-of-22), but Sixers went 8-of-9 from the FT line and held New York to two points in the paint. Harris: 7-6-2. Embiid is 0-for-3 from the field but 5-of-6 from the FT line. – 8:01 PM

Fred Katz @FredKatz
Through one quarter, the 76ers lead the Knicks 26-23.
• Barrett 8 & 4
• Randle 5 & 5
• Harris 7-6-2
• Embiid 5-3-2 – 8:01 PM

Keith Pompey @PompeyOnSixers
Embiid and Curry are a combined 1-for-7 shooting. Sixers lead 22-19. – 7:57 PM

Kyle Neubeck @KyleNeubeck
The regularity with which Embiid is hitting the weakside corner out of a double is probably the most important development of the early season for the Sixers – 7:41 PM

Fred Katz @FredKatz
Mitchell Robinson has talked a ton about all the muscle he put on in the offseason. This matchup tonight is exactly why. No one with Joel Embiid’s skill and strength. Curious to see how Robinson responds when Embiid goes at him. – 7:33 PM

Tim Bontemps @TimBontemps
Sixers starters tonight against the Knicks are as expected: Tyrese Maxey, Seth Curry, Danny Green, Tobias Harris and Joel Embiid. Andre Drummond, who missed Sunday’s win in OKC, is also active. – 7:02 PM

Rich Hoffman @rich_hofmann
Joel Embiid is in the starting lineup tonight. – 7:00 PM

Gina Mizell @ginamizell
Doc Rivers on Andre Drummond’s and Joel Embiid’s availability tonight: “We’re not positive, but they look good so far.” – 6:30 PM

Keith Pompey @PompeyOnSixers
Doc Rivers said Joel Embiid and Andre Drummond both appear good to go tonight vs. Knicks. – 6:03 PM

Steve Popper @StevePopper
