Doc Rivers said on Friday that Joel Embiid participated in portions of practice. Just individual drills, no team stuff, but that’s good news:
Doc Rivers said Joel Embiid did shooting drills at practice today and didn't do live stuff. Said he looked "great" but it's "too early" to know if he'll play on Sunday.

It sounded optimistic if we’re trying to gauge Doc’s tone and read between the lines a little bit. Obviously they’re gonna be vague and not give too much away.
If you didn’t see it the other night, here’s the video of Embiid warming up before the game:
