Philadelphia 76ers big man Joel Embiid butted heads with guard Markelle Fultz Wednesday and was forced to leave the game.

The Sixers later announced Embiid suffered a facial contusion and was taken to the hospital for precautionary testing.

Embiid did clear the NBA's concussion protocol. The All-Star had five points on 2-for-6 shooting and three rebounds before exiting.

The Sixers wound up beating the Knicks, 118-101, for their eighth straight win.
