76ers' Joel Embiid likely to undergo knee surgery, report says
Mar 23 2017
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.
