When Joel Embiid got hurt, then fans were expecting that after surgery, he will sit for two weeks. After that, the re-evaluation will be done.
It seems like re-valuation went well, that’s why he said that he is going to play again in the future. This year he had 23.4 average points and 12.3 boards per game.
When Embiid sat out, then Philadelphia 76ers went 5-3 in the eight games.
Next will be the home game for the 76ers. The game is against the Los Angeles Lakers on Saturday.
