The National Basketball Association Playoffs have been rough and tumble for Cameroonian star Joel Embiid of the Philadelphia 76ers.
Embiid dove into the crowd Tuesday night after a loose ball and then got hit in his mask-covered face during a rebound battle that resulted in a doctor visit.
Embiid says it was "a low, low situation" for him after Philadelphia's 120-85 loss to the host Miami Heat. Miami now leads the best-of-seven playoff series, three games to two.
We'll hear Embiid's comments on Wednesday's show. And Nigerian big man Ike Diogu of defending champion Zamalek will talk about the upcoming Basketball Africa League Playoffs in Kigali, Rwanda.
