Embiid practices!

We have to beware of stories like this, but it has to be considered a positive step. Philadelphia 76ers center Joel Embiid hasn’t played 5-on-5 basketball since March 24th.

He’s had a knee issue that shouldn’t have been that big of a deal, but he’s yet to be medically cleared for full practice. This is – and should be – very alarming to Sixers fans.

However, could there be some good news? According to Philly.com, Embiid played half-court 5-on-5 Friday in training camp.

Hallelujah!

It’s cautious optimism at this point, but Embiid is so incredibly crucial to the Sixers’ success. If he stays healthy, they are at least a mid-ranked playoff team. If not…well you better hope Markell Fultz and Ben Simmons are incredible.
