Joel Embiid sat out the end of the Sixers' practice on Wednesday as part of Philly's plan to limit his milage this season.
The Sixers have been tinkering with their approach to load managing Embiid this year, preferring to place more limits on his day-to-day activity rather than frequently keeping him out of games all together. To be clear, he will still miss games to load management this upcoming season, but it should encourage those thinking about drafting him that the Sixers want to find ways to manage his workload that also allow him to play more. He could be a first-round value if he is able to play near 70 games this season.
