• Joel Embiid said he doesn’t believe he’ll play in all 82 games this season, with the quote helpfully transcribed by Sixers beat writer Keith Pompey.

    Embiid remains one of the riskier picks in recent memory and is either admitting that the team will keep him on some kind of rest program or that he’s not fully healthy, though he did say that recents scan on his knee came up clean. Neither is great to hear, especially on the heel of news that he has yet to be cleared for 5-on-5 work. On the other hand, the Sixers also expect him ready for the regular season. Embiid has tons of risk to match his enormous upside and would be hard to resist if he falls into round four or five of your draft. Just be prepared for a potentially wild ride.
