Joel Embiid was a (damaged) star prospect when he was drafted third overall by the Sixers in 2014. Now, he’ll have to wait at least another year before playing in an NBA game.
Yahoo! Sports reported Saturday that Embiid will have his second foot surgery in as many years this Tuesday and is expected to miss the upcoming NBA season, which the Sixers announced back in July.
The surgery will again be on Embiid’s right foot and will involve a bone graft procedure, Yahoo! reported.
