The Philadelphia 76ers are optimistic that star center Joel Embiid will return Saturday from a three-week absence due to COVID-19, The Athletic reported Wednesday.

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.
