Derek Bodner of USA Today reported Embiid has a minor tear in his meniscus in addition to a knee contusion, though he will not require surgery and is considered day-to-day.



Update 3/1/17
http://www.nba.com/sixers/embiid-release-draft


"The assessment of Monday's follow-up MRI of Joel Embiid's left knee appears to reveal that the area affected by the bone bruise has improved significantly, while the previously identified meniscus tear appears more pronounced in this most recent scan," said Sixers Chief Medical Director and Co-Chief of Sports Medicine Orthopedics at New York’s Mount Sinai Medical Center Dr. Jonathan Glashow. "We will continue to work with leading specialists to gather additional information through clinical examination and sequential testing to determine the best course of action and next steps."



Embiid’s status is changed from out indefinitely to out for the remainder of this season.



"Our primary objective and focus remains to protect his long-term health and ability to perform on the basketball court," said Sixers President of Basketball Operations Bryan Colangelo. "As our medical team and performance staff continue their diligence in the evaluation, treatment, and rehabilitation of Joel's injury, we will provide any pertinent updates when available."

Torn meniscus is still a torn meniscus. Once menisci has issues usually it spells trouble for a basketball player long term. Hope it doesn't happen to him cause he is a stud and it would be terrible but that's a possibility.

After revealing the extent of Embiid’s injury, which the team knew about since last month, Colangelo was critical of the star center’s behavior at Friday’s Meek Mill concert.

“It’s not the best thing to see when you wake up on Saturday morning and find out that was the case,” Colangelo said, per Tom Moore of The Intelligencer. “I understand some of the potential concern out there. Being at a concert wasn’t disappointing. Probably being onstage and dancing was a little bit, given the circumstances and given the potential reaction.”



Colangelo is a hater lol

Brogdon was #2 before Embiid injury. Also with Parker done for the year. Kidd been using 3 guard euro line ups. So Brogdon be getting tons of minutes also had two good games after Parkers injury. Brogdon was a steal in second round. He easily replaces Delly.

LMAO. It's sad but I told you guys this dude just can't ever be healthy. He's way too mobile for his size and though that might be a great thing when he's actually healthy, it's a lot of wear & tear for his body. The truth is, Embiid has been on minute restriction and sitting out games left and right. You can't possibly tell me you're not worried about his future as a Sixers fan. There's going to be a day where you receive an update about Embiid and he's out for the season... and then the next season, it happens again. He's injury prone. He's sitting out games for a reason. Do the math. And this has nothing to do with hate. I like Embiid but it's difficult to evaluate his future and potential when he can rarely stay healthy.

Will Embiid ever be capable of leading his team 82 games, then DEEP into the playoffs while playing heavy minutes? We see his issues with little to no playing time... but if Philly is gonna capture that trophy, they'd need him to offer some serious playing time to make a deep run in the playoffs.

I doubt it... I'd really be close to giving up on him if I were Philly.

Vee is trolling because he knows that LeBron is leaving in 2018 and won't get another title before then assuming GSW stays in tact.

However, any injury with Embiid is a concern. There is no such thing as a Minor injury given his past history. When the initial thread was put up(not sure if it was this one or another one, I was called a troll for putting a thread up about a day to day injury. He hasn't played since then.

02-27-2017, 02:54 PM
I have never liked the way he moves. He has always looked so fragile to me. Even though he does beast, there is a lingering fragility that is ever present in every move he makes. He takes steps as if not to get injured or if every step comes with a pain that he can deal with but lessen with a little favoring. If I was Embiid, I would look to get as lean as humanly possible. He looks like he ways about 280. Id get the most series light weight boxing dietitian and get the diet right to shed all the weight he can. Try and relieve any excess weight to give the bones a break. Would also probably help his game.

To me that is his only chance to have a healthy career. Shaq was big but he was built like a 6 foot guy proportionally. He was not lanky, he was put together like no other 7 footer ever. David Robinson and anthony davis are both built like small forwards, like 6-7 nba players. KG as well. Embiid is a big, 7'2 lanky and awkwardly built man, and he needs to be light.

I get your hoping for the best but when's the last time a team's first report was actually accurate? Bucks said Jabari had sprained knee. Torn acl. It's a PR move as they have to issue some sort of statement to nor freak the fans out and let them rationalize that a more severe injury is possible.


Call it how you will but any knee/foot injury for any player is serious until proven otherwise. For every 10 Odens and Bynums you have 1 Kevin Durant. Probably less.

I am wishing embiid the best as I personally will cheer for anyone that can beat the cavs.

It has little to do with the injury itself and more with the fact that he can't seem to stay healthy even with limited minutes and play time.

Now, if Philly is just tanking - fine. But if Embiid is showing he can't be healthy I'd absolutely have to contemplate/think about trading his *** if I were in charge.

Because Ly'in Bryan was forced on us by the NBA.

If it were Hinkie they would have said what it was right away, given an estimate and not comment until the CBA said they had to (full 5 on 5 practicing).

"The Process" has yielded:

Nerlens Noel - A player traded for what will likely be a 2nd Round pick
Jahlil Okafor - A player who has seen his role reduced to bench piece
Ben Simmons - A Rookie who has thus far sat out the entire year
Dario Saric - A nice contributor but thus far not a game changer
Joel Embiid - A good player who is perpetually injured


The Process was supposed to eliminate the possibility of being stuck in 'NBA purgatory' where you are a perennially average team that loses in the first round. Well now they seem to be stuck in NBA basement where their high picks don't turn the franchise around.

If he were not injured at all, Embiid would be all over the Media saying it. Saying he was fine. Or at least going to Independent Doctors to get evaluated, right ? He has not. Also, MRI exams are expensive. Teams just don't do them willy-nilly. So something is wrong. I just hope that the Sixers don't drag their feet with either Embiid or Simmons, and then tell us 2 months from now that Ooops, sorry, each one has to have another Surgery, and they miss time NEXT season.

I disagreed that Philly is close to giving up on him. Everything else I more/less agree with.. I just don't see the incentive to give up on him until his contact situation hits the fan. If he plays in a similar amount of games until he is an RFA or UFA and he gets a max offer from the hornets or kings, then it may be time to give up on him.. But not for the foreseeable future. They have nothing to lose by keeping him.

not even gonna remotely go into the notion of giving up on someone because of a bone bruise... He had a foot injury that is healed and a bone bruise which was a freak injury... I get how he jumps around and does **** might not be ideal for his size but the injury prone **** is moronic... Its not like he is having injury after injury... one injury re-aggravated followed by a bone bruise. You dont give up on a guy doing what he is doing with his skill set and so on down the list... You sink or swim with him period. He has shown limitless potential that we have no seen since a guy like lebron...

Time to give up on a guy who is putting up 29/11/4/3 on 47 percent shooting and 37 percent from 3 per 36 minutes with god like defense because bone bruise lol.

http://dailyknicks.com/2017/02/27/new-york-knicks-kristaps-porzingis-injury-2/

Whoops time to give up on this guy as well.. He has been dealing with injuries all year.. Hell he has had different injuries... Whoops time to give up on AD as well if you read this part of said article

No matter how great a player KP can be down the line, none of it will matter if he can’t stay on the court.

Porzingis has an eerily similar injury history through his first year-and-a-half to Anthony Davis.


If it was embiids foot then i wouldnt consider this notion incredibly moronic... Its a bone bruise/meniscus which has been mishandled by our franchise because they treat this guy with bubble wrap.

@Anthonysmdoyle Greg Oden played 1814 minutes in his first 3 seasons on a NBA roster. Joel Embiid will have played 786...

Embiid has had a foot injury and now he has meniscus problems. If you hear the phrase microfracture surgery in the next couple months, you can pretty much throw in the towel on embiid. He could have a positive career after micro surgery, but I doubt he is going to be the first person to have a long and healthy career as a face of a franchise.

With this injury Brogdon and Saric will battle for that ROY honor, and if the Bucks make the postseason, it will because of solid play by Brogdon, so I give him the edge to win the award. Rough year for Philly fans.

MTM, you are in denial. Injury prone means you get injured easily. If Embiid can't handle all of this now, I am afraid to tell you that he most likely won't be handling it down the line as well. He's barely crossing 25 minutes when he does play and that's if he DOES play.

I'm tired of debating semantics with you. The point is, Embiid can't stay healthy. You keep saying the management hasn't done well maintaining him.. so the guy isn't healthy then.. because last I checked, players like LeBron were playing upwards of 40 minutes daily. Embiid is a tall player who can't stay healthy and bone bruise or not, like I have said MILLIONS of times already, it was bound to happen. Watch what happens a year from now and he's barely playing half the games.. then tell me he's better than Giannis..

I think what is more bothering is it's not acute. The fact he has had this minor tear. Could that be a sign of knee degeneration? absolutely. Is it for sure? no one knows. He will again probably play less than half the season on a minute regulation. My guess is they will do the same thing with him next year. His rookie scale contract is up. I would think they resign for what will be big time money but he still hasn't been able to stay on the floor.

You may not be concerned but its unsettling that a guy gets injured on a minute restriction. And if we are comparing jumping and dancing to the force of an NBA game I think you are a little out of touch with the demand of the NBA.

You are in denial. I guess you missed the part where he's not playing for a reason.. do you really think if he was as healthy as you seem to make it be, he wouldn't be playing? Missed 16/17 games?

exactly. He thinks it's a small injury but the fact is, he's on a minute restriction for the entire season and still has nagging injuries. And he's a very young player so how is anyone supposed to trust that he'll stay healthy for years and build around him? If you're a fan of the Sixers, I can't possibly see how this isn't a problem. if Russ was out every other day and was on a minute restriction, I'd be worried.

I wouldn't lump him into that category either. But if you're injury prone, you will continue to be injury prone. It may not be major injuries each time but eventually they catch up to you on your body and your mind.

Yeah and this current injury happened because he was over aggressive and careless with his body. He landed bad because he wasn't in control of his body on that play. If he can learn to properly control his body then this doesn't happen again. A muscle tear isn't a symptom of a past foot injury.

Has a player ever been babied more than Embidd? No strenuous travel, no back to back games, no more than 25mpg. He basically played every game 100% fresh without having to endure the rigors of a normal NBA schedule.

More proof that it doesn't work. These guys are either going to be able to play or they're not, all this babying just delays the inevitable.

I guess if they never play him though and he never practices maybe they can keep him healthy that way?

This is important. Most people don't understand this. Some is genetics. The physics of how someone jumps and runs can put someone at risk. Genetics of body composition plays a role. Most injuries aren't unlucky.

Injuries can change the body makeup and it influences every part of movement, making people susceptible to injury.

Gallo for example. Last 5 injuries that he missed significant time. Torn ACL in left knee, torn meniscus in right knee, back injury, sprained ankle, groin injury. Injury prone yes, unlucky probably not, genetic or due to past injuries...more likely.

I agree with this idea 100% but if you watch Embiid play and you saw the specific play he got hurt on, then you know he is reckless with his body at times. He doesn't know how to fall, and he doesn't always land in a controlled fashion. He often has his foot, knee, or hips in a bad position when he lands to take the full force of the play instead of having it spread out through the body.

The current injury is because he landed bad.

The first injury was an injury, the second injury wasn't a new injury, it was him growing 2 inches taller and the screw no longer being in proper position due to him growing. That is literally the biggest factor in the second injury. All time he missed prior to this year was the same injury and a growth spurt causing the injury to no be able to properly heal. This injury is him landing bad.

Maybe he is injury prone, maybe not. If you understand the circumstances then it becomes a little gray.

"The Process" has yielded:

Nerlens Noel - A player traded for what will likely be a 2nd Round pick
Jahlil Okafor - A player who has seen his role reduced to bench piece
Ben Simmons - A Rookie who has thus far sat out the entire year
Dario Saric - A nice contributor but thus far not a game changer
Joel Embiid - A good player who is perpetually injured


The Process was supposed to eliminate the possibility of being stuck in 'NBA purgatory' where you are a perennially average team that loses in the first round. Well now they seem to be stuck in NBA basement where their high picks don't turn the franchise around.

You can't talk about the process and not include all the future assets...

but its still a minor injury. unless something comes back on the MRI more serious im still not really concerned. You can be injury prone and still be great aka Anthony Davis.

No I will rip you for thinking the meniscus is a minor injury. I don't care, its a minor tear but Colangelo says its not an acute injury. So what does that mean? Degenerative or wear and tear. Regardless of either one the susceptibility he has from not playing back to backs and on minute restriction is extremely concerning.

You almost prefer acute cause you know it came from a certain incident which require surgery. Like Westbrook, Rose, Gallo etc. Chronic tend to only be treated by rest ice and compression sleeves. Regardless meniscus is one of the worst injuries no matter how small they are in any high force sport due to the job of the meniscus.

You can't compare them. Davis,despite this reputation of injury prone guy,played four years in the NBA,missing 68 games and he is playing his 5th season and never missed a game this year. Embiid is in his first season with a three years span of inactivity due to injury.

Honestly as amazing a player as he is Embiid is simply not a long-term solution because of his health. Having Noel was the only thing that made me comfortable with the situation having a legit starting quality center as a fallback. Now we don't have that and I feel the smartest move would be to sell on Embiid and Simmons for other assets as they both have the sorts of injury situations that scream longterm trouble.
I hate to say it with how insanely talented they are but I don't want this team to end up the next trailblazers.

Anybody that thinks Embiid can have any form of longevity in this league is kidding themselves. It is sad because he obviously has a ton of talent but it'll never amount to anything bc he can't stay or even get on the court. I said it from day 1 that he was a player I would steer clear of because of the injury concerns coming into the draft.

Sixer fans will need to continue to grow thicker skin. They must realize what it looks like from the outside regarding their team.

That being said, they identified the potential future this year, have another high level asset/rookie next year in Simmons, and will load up again in this years draft. The future is bright, just take your lumps now, because for non-Sixer fans that don't live and breath Philly news, it's a tough follow as a sports team right now.

This isn't about Embiid but its a good article IMO. This part tells you injuries aren't just about luck. Embiid scares me with the way he plays. He needs to seek out a guy like Elliott.


As you’d expect, Gordon’s problem was never his ability to jump; Elliott was more concerned about how he was landing. During their predraft testing, Elliott noticed some asymmetry in his landing mechanics. He was overloading his left side. In their initial report of Gordon, under “Needs Improvement” was his ground interaction, and how his landings affected him at the foot and ankle level. They let Gordon know, but he was dubious. I can ****ing hit my head on the rim, Gordon thought. Don’t talk to me about a mechanics problem.

Two weeks into his rookie season, he had a stress fracture in his left foot.

“There’s this hidden code behind sports that people haven’t really exposed before,” Elliott said. “If you understand the code, a lot of the outcomes don’t surprise you. They’ve telegraphed themselves to you.”

Gordon returned to the court in mid-January of 2015, and played 47 games total in his rookie campaign. The week the season ended, he was back in Santa Barbara. He was the first NBA player the P3 staff worked out that offseason.

“When all arrows were pointing towards [the mechanical issues we’d identified], I think — he already believed in what we did, but it gave him a lot more belief,” Elliott said. “It gave him a reality check on how fragile and fickle an NBA career is, and how quickly things can go south on you. And so he comes back, he has a great offseason with us. He almost completely normalizes his mechanics on [his landing], so the mechanics that were really worrisome are not worrisome now.”

um... its not even close... Even with Embiid injury issues... We have Simmons who cant play worse than ingram did this year... We have saric whom has more potential than any of the laker players... we then have guys like TLC and on top of this we will have your pick and our own PLUS we dont have mosgove and deng.... Its not even in the same galaxy man and I love DLO/Ingram.

on top of all of this we still have embiid who has shown generational talent... once in a lifetime talent... him staying healthy is a yet and see but like i said outside of the warriors/spurs/cavs there isnt a position id want to be in right now outside of the wolves maybe and celtics.

Laker fans throwing stones in glass houses by the way... they are on year 3 of the tank... but refuse to admit it. Sixers tanked for 3 years... This wasnt year 4... we were hella competitive and were a force before embiid went down even without simmons... we won this many games with embiid playing half the time and Noel being hurt and oka being hurt and no simmons and saric off the bench....We werent tanking. Now the final 20 games we are.

Trust me I want the knicks and lakers competitive because its better for the NBA and I love Russ and Ingram even though russ has just let me down horribly.... But outside of the nets who has a bleaker future than the lakers? Those off season contracts really really set them back and they should have gotten more for lou williams... Their future hinges on them keeping their pick this year... If they dont its going to cripple them.

its ridiculous, the more teams baby these guys the more they get hurt it seems.

Maybe Embiid just can't play in the NBA, its ok. babying him for 4-5 years isn't going to change that.

You're right though, maybe next year he won't be allowed to travel at all so he'll only play home games on 2+ days rest each and 20mpg. What good does that do? If your star can't play 75+ games and 30mpg what good is he doing?

this is where i actually agree with you (for the most part). Not just EMbiid but all players coming back from injury and these restrictions are too much. Embiid is understandable for this year, the guy didnt play for 2.5 years but i do think he should have been able to play select B2B's after a certain point but that was never gonna happen. I do recall Griffin coming back vs the Sixers and having no restrictions and he was right back to himself.

Most big men are expected to miss games through out a season over their career because of the wear and tear.

If I had a dominant big man on a contending team I wouldn't expect 75 games plus the post season. I would be looking at like 67-73 to keep him healthier long term. Look how many big men play 80, 81 or 82 games a season. It's rare, and not healthy considerign the wear and tear, and longevity of big men careers.

again that sounds nice but is babying these players really keeping them healthier long term? seems like the opposite is happening. Take a look at the bigs of the previous generation and how many games they played. Duncan played a TON of games/minutes, it was only when he got old that he was limited more and thats reasonable. but limiting young guys in their early 20's is a new thing and hasn't shown that it actually works.

I really wanted Embiid to thrive because he seems like such an awesome talent and personality. I have zero faith that a guy who missed the first 2 seasons of his career and now out again with knee issues is gonna make it in the NBA for a career.

again that sounds nice but is babying these players really keeping them healthier long term? seems like the opposite is happening. Take a look at the bigs of the previous generation and how many games they played. Duncan played a TON of games/minutes, it was only when he got old that he was limited more and thats reasonable. but limiting young guys in their early 20's is a new thing and hasn't shown that it actually works.

I am not even tlaking about babying. If my star player has even a minor bruise during the regular season say on their foot, I'd allow him to sit out pre-cautionary during the season no problem. Multiple times over. I'm playing it safe. 82 games plus practice every day is a lot of wear and tear

that was my take as well from day 1 gia... Embiid was 100 percent healthy... there is no reason at all other then them being scared of the lash back of being injured for them bubble wrapping him all year.. injuries are going to happen one way or another but having a player constantly worrying about **** is a bad idea... On top of this maybe if he is playing alot his body gets use to all the jumping around he does and it becomes a good thing he plays alot... its just ****ing dumb to bubble wrap players when they are 100 percent... i am not saying playing them in every game... embiid should have started with a minutes restriction in the pre season... that **** should have been gone by game 7-10 of the regular season

it has 0 to do with being a homer... everyone has seen his talent... i have said from the beginning i worry every time about him getting injured.. the whole 31 games in 2 seasons is ******** and you know it... its 31 games in his first season where he was under minute restrictions and wasnt allowed in back to backs because the organization was being overly cautious... He then got a normal injury that happens to a good bit of players... Again Larry nance... But again LOGIC seems to be thrown out when it comes to embiid... Answer me this... Was any of his issues this year foot related? You know that injury that cost him his first 2 seasons? that answer would be NOPE... The foot is and has been fully healthy with 0 issues from it but yo lets connect injuries together just because.... Its not a pass.. Its legit facts... What exactly have i said that isnt factual or an assumption like you or wait a hater ahem cough cough is throwing out.

What is far more interesting to me is before this guy played everyone said and stated and ASSUMED he was a bust because he had a foot injury that has caused others their career.... He comes back on said foot injury and manages to play in 31 games with 0 issues on said foot where he played like a god and was jumping/dunking/diving etc etc etc like one of the most athletic players in basketball with again NO ISSUES relating to said foot that everyone doubted or ASSUMED would cost him his career or limit his potential.... He then gets a bone bruise something unrelated to said injury that sat him out for his first 2 seasons which is 100 percent healthy and an injury the bone bruise that literally multiple other players get yearly and are fine after a few weeks but that said bone bruise makes Embiid injury prone even though it has 0 to do with his foot injury THAT IS 100 PERCENT HEALTHY? So its ok to ASSUME he cant play without being injured even though we seen such high level of play in that 31 game span where his foot held up better than fine because of and wait for it.................. a bone bruise.... the logic just impresses me how we connect those 2 injuries.

Hater? I acknowledged his skills. You're still pretending that Embiid is healthy and that the franchise is responsible for this. No one is saying Embiid isn't skilled but you are totally delusional if you don't think Embiid is injury prone. Connect the dots, buddy. One injury after another, your body is clearly being affected overall. It's like if your back is hurting. You use muscles from other areas to compensate. This **** is all connected. Embiid is not someone who can stay healthy in the NBA. Face it. Your only hope is that Ben Simmons is a monster because Philly won't be seeing Embiid every game like they thought. This "Process" is taking two years already. And you keep saying Embiid is "dominating." Yeah, well no ****. What other rookie has as much control over his franchise than Embiid? Teams aren't expecting him to play so they don't even devise the plan to guard him. Put him out their consistently and performance drops big time. You are in denial.. almost everyone is telling you that. Coming from 29 other fans from different teams, it's not homer or hater when there is this much consensus that Embiid is bound to get injured... again. I said months ago that you shouldn't build over Embiid.. This is why. You can't risk your franchise for a guy who plays 20% of available games. Giannis is younger and plays every game, more minutes, and does more. You said you would take Embiid over him.. LOL, no you won't.

so larry nance got a bone bruise because of other injuries or does that no fit your argument? Durant just got one as well... His past injury caused gravity and zaza to fall into him right? Again If this was Embiids foot id be the first one saying we need to reevaluate building around him... Its a common injury unrelated to his first and only injury in his career and something many other NBA players have had to deal with... BUT YO lets toss those injuries together instead of using logic so i can say I was right months ago :cheers:


Embiid can play in 80 of 82 games next season and stump his toe and people cough cough you... would be in here saying I TOLD YOU HE IS INJURY PRONE... He cant play 82... His toe is connected to his foot which is connected to his knee and thus the foot injury even though is healed caused this because of the pressure from the bone bruise and his leg is about to fall off.

you aren't using logic, pal. Embiid is getting injured regardless of how you keep saying they are connected or not. Injury prone is not exclusive to one particular injury. It means a player just can't stay healthy. And you keep bringing up larry Nance. Who the fck is this guy? No one gives a damn. larry nance ain't a franchise player nor was he projected to be the first pick. Last I checked, larry nance is not even starting for his team.. are you serious? And comparing him to KD? the same KD who was MVP and is probably the greatest scorer we've ever seen and has been healthy for most of his career to some guy who has played 20% of available games since he's been in the NBA? But yo, let's pretend that these injuries are not connected and that embiid is going to all of a sudden come back next season and play all 82 games, 36 mins each.. yeah, stop dude. This guy does not play back to backs for a reason. The franchise does not trust "the process" in terms of health. if they played him 30 minutes and back to backs, he'd probably end up on a wheelchair.

you can say anything you want but just because you say he will play 80/82 games doesn't mean he will. Unless you mean he plays one minute (becareful, that might be too much), then it might be possible. And you clearly aren't using logic. What do you do when your leg hurts? You put more force on your other leg. What do you do when your right hand hurts? you use your left hand. it's all interrelated. By having one injury, you're putting yourself at risk for another injury. ever heard of the domino effect? I mean, c'mon. this ain't rocket science booboo

so again bringing nothing of substance when it comes to said injuries but instead throwing **** against the wall and praying it all fits.... I am pointing out a common injury embiid suffered that others suffer daily THAT ISNT Related to the only other injury he has had and you in turn are throwing a guy under the bus like Nance because he isnt projected to be a star? So now one has to be projected to be a star to be injury prone? And then you bring up Durants past accomplishments?

My man... we get it... the foot bones connected to the knee bone and the knee is connected to the blah blah blah so all the injuries are connected and his leg is about to fall off... -bone bruise- the new torn acl.

Let's ease up on a hypothetical of Embiid playing 80 games in a season until we see if he can get through 40 games in one.

Let's ease up on a hypothetical of Embiid playing 80 games in a season until we see if he can get through 40 games in one.

He's averaging 10.33 GP/year thus far in his career. So at this rate he will play in his 82 game near the end of the 2021-2022 season. 80 is way to aggressive of a number to put the odds on. I think there would be better odds on LeBron switching sports and playing football professionally at this point in time

valade16
03-04-2017, 12:01 PM
Fun fact: He's averaging 10.33 GP/year thus far in his career.

Another fun fact, he has less total minutes played than Pascal Siakam (786 to 808). Siakam is averaging 11 MPG this season.

look up the embiid thread its not that hard... i even daily updated the first few weeks when he played and it was like crickets in there compared to the people saying he would never play or blah blah blah.

Not a homer in the least bit.. I love talent... I was singing this dudes praises before we drafted him much like I did DLo etc... Much like i called OKA and mud the biggest busts... Again if you spent more time understanding the sport and less time trolling etc you would be a hell of a person to debate with but as it is now you come unprepared.

Also I have also been saying i am concerned everytime he goes up in the air and always will be... I am just not a moron who thinks a bone bruise is the worst thing ever when its a normal injury a good bit of players get yearly... Again his foot is 100 percent healed but YO...

A theory floating around is there never was a bone bruise and it was a mis-diagnosed meniscus tear from the start.

I'm not going to get into arguing his health or anything, but what's "encouraging" to me (if there is such a thing with this discussion) is that this time Embiid's injury came from playing. It came on something that has hurt many players much worse (landing funny and hyper extending his knee). So that to me makes me feel the slightest bit better.
