Joel Embiid (torn ligament, left hand) has been cleared for non-contact and conditioning drills.
Embiid suffered a dislocation of his left ring finger that also resulted in a torn ligament, and he underwent surgery on January 10. He was expected to be reevaluated in 1-2 weeks, which lines up with what we're seeing here. Embiid might be able to return some time next week, as his clearance so soon after the procedure is a great sign. Mike Scott should continue to start while Norvel Pelle is a solid deep-league option for blocks with Embiid out.
