The Sixers leading star has missed 10 of the last 11 games with a knee injury and the team today revealed the true extent of the injury.
It has been reported that Embiid has a partially torn meniscus, but will not require surgery. He remains a day-to-day propostion but expect the Sixers to hold him out until after the All-Star break next weekend.
In the meantime, Jahlil Okafor & Nerlens Noel will see increased minutes on the court. A blessing in disguise maybe as the Sixers look to further increase Okafor’s trade value before the deadline.
