Report: NBA will take no further action on Embiid, Harden, both available for Game 4

Natalie and Kelsey Nicole Nelson assess how Joel Embiid's Flagrant 1 foul toward Nic Claxton during Game 3 against the Nets compared to what Draymond Green did to Domantas Sabonis, as well as James Harden's ejection.

The Philadelphia 76ers will be at full strength for Game 4 against the Nets on Saturday.

No further action will be taken by the NBA league office on Joel Embiid or James Harden for their actions in Game 3 of the series against Brooklyn, reports Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN.

There was some speculation Embiid could face more punishment after he was given a Flagrant 1 foul for an attempt to kick the Nets’ Nic Claxton in the cajones, a punishment generally seen as light considering the action.

Warriors fans are looking at that, thinking about what happened to Draymond Green in the 2016 Finals (suspended following a kick to LeBron James’ groin, although that was due to the accumulation of flagrants) and just this week when Green was suspended for stepping on Domantas Sabonis.

It was unlikely James Harden was going to face further punishment for his late third quarter ejection in Game 3. That ejection was seen outside Brooklyn as an overreaction to this play.

A fully available 76ers team is bad news for the Nets, who trail in the series 0-3 and face elimination with another loss.
