The Philadelphia 76ers may have opened their postseason without Joel Embiid, but they may not be without their All-Star center for much longer.

Embiid told ESPN’s Ramona Shelburne that there’s a “pretty good chance” he plays in Game 2 or Game 3: “If it was my decision I would play, but I can’t get back out on the court if I don’t have the OK from them, but everything has been going well.”

He has not played since suffering an orbital fracture and concussion in a collision with teammate Markelle Fultz against the New York Knicks on March 28.
