The video itself does not make stated boos apparent. Those covering the video game, and those with a Philadelphia slant (certainly), thought there may have been some cheers. Either method, any obvious motive against Embiid playing would clearly be an offense of NBA etiquette.
As if our expectations for basketball fans werent already low this playoffs.
NBA Playoffs: Did Atlanta Hawks fans cheer Joel Embiids injury?
If were being frank, its too difficult to inform. The audio on this clip does not appear to show anything too out of the regular, though a lot of fans are keeping up it.
Disgraceful how Sixers fans traveled to Atlanta to pose as Hawks fans cheering when Embiid has looked hurt.

When Embiid was relatively injured, shame on Hawks fans for as soon as again cheering.

There were more where that originated from.
Sixers fans are utilized to being called egalitarian by the media and other NBA fanbases. When they see another fanbase partaking in some doubtful habits, they call it out.
That was the case on Friday night, though its unclear if, or the number of, real Hawks fans took part.
Hawks fans were cheering Embiid seeming injured btw but ESPN wont run with anti atlanta fan narratives.

While Philly had the ability to take Game 3, securing a 2-1 lead in a series they are preferred to win, some 76ers fans are convinced that those enjoying the game live at State Farm Arena cheered Embiids potential death.

Philadelphia 76ers big male Joel Embiid dealt with injuries in Game 3. Did Atlanta Hawks fans cheer when he injured his knee?
Embiid was the MVP favorite for most of the season for a reason, so any minutes he can offer the 76ers are favorable ones.
