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 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.
