The Sixers announced that Joel Embiid successfully underwent arthroscopic surgery on his left knee this afternoon.
Embiid’s current recovery program has him “back to full weight-bearing in approximately two weeks,” followed by additional rehab. It remains to be seen how this meniscus tear will affect his offseason program and availability for next year. Regardless of how quickly he returns to basketball activity, Embiid represents a serious risk-reward play in drafts next season.
