Embiid has been "ramping up" this week, per the report, and could return for Saturday's home contest against the Minnesota Timberwolves or Monday's game with the visiting Orlando Magic.

The four-time All-Star entered the health and safety protocols after a positive COVID-19 test on Nov. 8.

Embiid, 27, is averaging 21.4 points, 9.4 rebounds, and 4.0 assists per game in nine games this season.

The 76ers, who were 8-2 after his last game on Nov. 6, have gone 2-6 in his absence heading into Wednesday's game at the Golden State Warriors.
