Joel Embiid said a two-month injury lay-off was “mentally” tough as he returned to help the Philadelphia 76ers pick up a 109-105 win against the Oklahoma City Thunder in the NBA.

Embiid, 30, suffered a knee injury in a 119-107 defeat at the Golden State Warriors on 31 January.

The Cameroonian marked his return to the court at Wells Fargo Center with 24 points, seven assists and six rebounds.

The 76ers lost 18 of their 30 games while Embiid was sidelined and are eighth in the Eastern Conference, dropping into the play-in positions after previously sitting in the automatic post-season spots.
