Embiid collided with teammate Markelle Fultz going after a loose ball during the second quarter of the Sixers' win over the New York Knicks, and the team announced Thursday that Embiid is in concussion protocol and will require surgery to fix an orbital fracture.

The Sixers announced Embiid suffered a facial contusion on Wednesday night, but have since downgraded their superstar.
