Joel Embiid (knee) took part in an offseason conditioning workout at Front Street Boxing Gym in Philadelphia on Thursday.
Embiid seems to be healing up nicely from the knee surgery that cut his rookie season short. The Sixers were comfortable enough to allow him to get in a workout at a local boxing gym with some of his teammates and he looked to be moving around well even though he wasn’t on the court. He is sitting out Summer League but at this pace he should make it back for training camp at 100 percent. Fantasy owners should probably be willing to Trust the Process starting in the 4th round in next year’s drafts if his health bill comes back clean in the pre-season though the injury risk will remain.
