Philadelphia’s Joel Embiid hurt by accidental head butt

PHILADELPHIA (AP) — Philadelphia center Joel Embiid went to the locker room in the second quarter of the 76ers’ game against the New York Knicks on Wednesday after a nasty collision with teammate Markelle Fultz.

Fultz was driving toward the basket 20 seconds into the period when he accidentally head-butted Embiid. The 7-footer immediately went to the floor. He lay on the floor for several minutes before finally being assisted by Philadelphia’s trainer. Embiid sat up once before lying back down on the court. Eventually, he was helped off the court.

Fultz was not injured on the play.
