Thursday's Sixers News: Bad night in Miami

Sixers can't keep up with Heat: The Philadelphia 76ers were out of this game by halftime. The Miami Heat built a 21-point second-quarter cushion on the way to a 125-98 victory Wednesday night at AmericanAirlines Arena. -- The Philadelphia Inquirer

Embiid out for season; meniscus injury worsens: The 76ers declared Joel Embiid out for the season Wednesday. Now they turn to the question of how to build their team around the often-injured center. Embiid, at one time a shoo-in for NBA rookie of the year, is hampered by a torn meniscus and a bone bruise in this left knee. -- The Philadelphia Inquirer

Sixers call performance 'terrible' after being blown out by Heat: The Sixers looked disconnected in their 125-98 loss to the Heat, but after the game they were on the same page with their performance. "We just played terrible as a team on both ends of the floor," Jahlil Okafor said. "We just weren't good." -- CSN Philly

Instant Replay: Sixers melt right from the start in loss to Heat: The Heat got revenge for the Sixers snapping their 13-game winning streak last month with a 125-98 win Wednesday night at the AmericanAirlines Arena. The Sixers trailed by as many as 27 points in a game the Heat had control of from the start. The Heat took a 10-point lead in the first quarter and went up 20 by halftime. -- CSN Philly

Joel Embiid out for rest of season; torn meniscus 'more pronounced': Joel Embiid is no longer out indefinitely. The 76ers announced Wednesday afternoon, 48 hours after he underwent an MRI, that Embiid would miss the remainder of the season because the MRI showed the partially torn meniscus in his left knee "appears more pronounced," according to Dr. Jonathan Glashow of New York's Mount Sinai Medical Center. -- The Intelligencer
