Joel Embiid (foot) is making progress but is still unlikely to play in Summer League.
There was some speculation from Bryan Colangelo and even Embiid himself that he could play in either summer league (Utah or Las Vegas) taking place in July. However, reports have surfaced that the 76ers may continue to take the cautious approach. Embiid has stated that he should be ready for the start of the 2016-17 season, and he will join a very crowded and talented front court with Jahlil Okafor and Nerlens Noel.
