Joel Embiid obviously did not play in the Sixers’ season finale on Wednesday, finishing the year with 31 games played and 25.4 minutes per contest.
Embiid was a tour de force when on the floor and averaged 20.2 points, 1.2 treys, 7.8 boards, 2.1 assists, 0.9 steals and 2.4 blocks while hitting 46.6 percent from the field and 78.3 percent from the line. The fact that the Sixers mismanaged his knee situation actually makes us angry with stats like that. He’ll be among the most interesting risk-reward picks this upcoming season.
