Another NBA conference semifinals series will get underway on Monday as the Philadelphia 76ers take on the Miami Heat.

Of course, the most relevant news regarding the series right now is the status of star big man Joel Embiid. The center didn’t travel to Miami for the first two games of the series as he deals with an orbital fracture and a concussion. He was already playing through a ligament issue in his finger.

Evidently Embiid is worth about three points to the spread as this game moved from 4.5 to 7.5 after the news of his absence broke. He’s targeting a game three or four return, but neither game is a guarantee.

The Heat head into this matchup as a one-seed that isn’t really getting a lot of credit.

Miami entered the playoffs as the fourth-favorite to win the Eastern Conference after the Boston Celtics, Brooklyn Nets and Milwaukee Nets, and now it’s still only tied for the second-shortest odds to win the conference alongside Boston.

Will the Heat continue to dominate in this contest or will the ‘Sixers mount an Embiid-less effort to steal a game away from home? Here’s what the Action Network’s NBA PRO Report has to say.
