Sixers’ Joel Embiid Expects To Be Ready For Training Camp

philadelphia 76ers

Philadelphia 76ers big man Joel Embiid is recovering from knee surgery but is currently taking part in non-contact drills and said that he should be ready to participate in training camp, according to The Undefeated’s Marc J. Spears.

Embiid recently discussed the procedure with ESPN’s Jackie MacMullan stating that the injury wasn’t as bad as originally thought.

“I feel very lucky,” Embiid said. “When I went into that surgery, I went in thinking I was going to have a six-month recovery. That’s what they told me: six months or more. I’m thinking, ‘No, not again.’”

“When they did the MRI [before the surgery], it looked like my meniscus was fully torn. But when they got it in there, they realized that wasn’t the case. It really turned out to be nothing, just a small, little thing. So that’s very good.”
