    Awful news for Philly fans. He was supposed to be the best player from that draft.

    That sucks for him. I like his personality. At least they will have another high lottery pick next year.

    Damn, well I guess they should be happy with Okafor then. It's unfortunate for Embiid. Hopefully he can get back to playing at least in some form. But it might go to show that Hinikie's "Plan" to tank for a half decade needs pretty much everything to go in their favor (A la OKC).

    There wasn't minutes for Noel, Okafor, and Embiid anyway, right?

    Unfortunate, I am sure the kid is beyond frustrated. It's really a bummer when big men have these lower body injuries so young, it becomes an uphill climb to ever get to where they might have been.

    Even with him, Philly wasn't going to be competitive this year. They will stink again, and right now, the top 5 players coming out next year are again littered with PF/C, which they just don't need.

    If you want the ultimate, you've got to be willing to pay the ultimate price. It's not tragic to die doing what you love.

    really feel for him, he has been doing everything he can to gt healthy and its just not working, just hope he gets to see the court in the future at some point. But man we really gotta thank the Lakers for passing Okafor now, seriously.

    So clueless. Hopefully they correct this and get him healthy

    I think there were. A good 3 big man rotation would mean you can have two guys on the floor at all times.

    I don't think they would have made the playoffs anyway but they might have been too good to earn a top by pic. Now I'm pretty sure they will get another one.

    They could always trade the pick. And with this second injury, can you really count on Embiid at all anymore? If the talent is so much greater than the alternative you can use a 3rd big behind Noel/Okafor. Even if those guys play 33 minutes/game each, there's still another 30 minutes per game of PF/C minutes available. The key would just be to draft a guy that can pair with either Okafor or Noel.
