Embiid done for the year
- Updated: March 1, 2017
This isn’t exactly shocking. Philadelphia 76ers phenom Joel Embiid has been out for awhile now with a bone bruise in his knee and a torn meniscus.
Add that to the fact that he missed all of his first two years with injuries and it paints a concerning picture for the Sixers.
Apparently, the Sixers aren’t willing to risk it with their stud because they have decided to shut him down for the season and not risk it.
The doctor said a recent MRI showed the tear to be worse than they thought. General manager Bryan Colangelo said he’s hoping there isn’t a need for surgery. Regarding the bone bruise, the doctor said that had gotten much better.
This could be an annual thing with Embiid.
