Philadelphia 76ers big man Joel Embiid has been suspended two games for his role in an on-court altercation with the Minnesota Timberwolves’ Karl-Anthony Towns. Embiid’s suspension means he will miss Saturday’s game against the Portland Trail Blazers.
Embiid is known for his trash talk and mini-rivalries across the league. He even has history with current Blazers center Hassan Whiteside.
Portland and Philadelphia will tip off at 7 p.m. PT on Saturday.
