Joel Embiid (knee) was limited on Monday’s practice according to Jessica Camerato of NBC Sports Philadelphia.
Embiid is still recovering from knee surgery so the Sixers are deploying him cautiously. His minutes will likely be limited throughout preseason too. As for the regular season, he’s worth keeping an eye on as the early round unfold. However, with his injury history he could be a safer pick in the middle rounds. Embiid is the perfect high-risk, high-reward player so if you are feeling like taking a shot on his knee, feel free to take him in the top-30.
