After a scrimmage on Wednesday Joel Embiid conceded that “it’s going to take time” before he’s comfortable playing at full speed.
“Everything is kind of off right now as far as catching the ball and shooting,” Embiid said. “I’ve still got to get in the flow of the game.” The organization has been singing Embiid praises all week, so some rust during a scrimmage isn’t anything to sweat. Although he won’t play on back-to-back sets Embiid has a chance to start this season, making him a high upside flyer in all leagues.
