Joel Embiid pokes fun at how much his rookie year'sucks in hilarious new

Embiid, 22, averaged 20.2 points, 7.8 rebounds and 2.5 blocks per game in 31 games played this season. "And now, out for the season after we shot this commercial, with a rookie year lasting longer than a Jolly Rancher, Joel The Process Embiid".

Embiid, who sat out his first two seasons after being drafted third overall by the Sixers in 2014, finally got his chance to play this season.

Now, it appears the injury is severe enough to require surgery, as ESPN's Marc Stein reported Wednesday. The Philadelphia 76ers have given no (public) recovery timetable since.

According to ESPN's Marc Stein, Philadelphia 76ers center Joel Embiid is "very likely" to have surgery to fix a partially torn meniscus in his left knee.

The news isn't all that surprising after the 76ers announced back in February that Embiid was dealing with a partially torn meniscus, but there had been hope that the tear was small enough to avoid surgery.

Embiid missed the first two seasons after recovering from foot surgery.

The Sixers announced that Embiid will have to have surgery on his left knee to fix a torn meniscus.

Embiid hyperextended his knee on January 20, but played one week later. There's still a good chance he ends up winning the NBA's Rookie of the Year award, too.

Hopefully, Embiid is able to return to the team before next year's training camp.
