DETROIT (AP) — Philadelphia center Joel Embiid is out for a fourth straight game with a concussion and orbital fracture.

Embiid is missing Wednesday night’s (Thursday, PHL time) matchup with the Detroit Pistons, who are without star forward Blake Griffin.

Griffin is missing his fourth game in a row because of a bruised right ankle.

Embiid had surgery Saturday (Sunday, PHL time) to repair the broken bone around his left eye. He was injured when guard Markelle Fultz accidentally head-butted him last week against the New York Knicks.

The 76ers are also without forward Dario Saric, who is out with a right elbow issue.
