CLEVELAND — Philadelphia's All-Star center Joel Embiid sprained his left shoulder in Wednesday night's 108-94 loss to the Cleveland Cavaliers.
Embiid was injured in the first quarter and scored three points in eight minutes.
The Sixers, also playing without All-Star guard Ben Simmons, never led against the team with the worst record in the Eastern Conference and fell to 9-21 on the road.
Collin Sexton led the Cavaliers with 28 points. Cleveland is 3-1 under coach J.B. Bickerstaff, who took over when John Beilein resigned during the All-Star break.
