Sixers Roll the Dice on Center Joel Embiid

Sixers Roll the Dice on Center Joel Embiid

Cooper Neil/Getty Images(PHILADELPHIA) — For the third-straight year, the Philadelphia 76ers are bringing in a center who very well could sit out for the entire season. With the third pick in Thursday night’s NBA Draft, the team selected former Kansas center Joel Embiid.
Once considered to be the number one overall prospect in the draft, Embiid fell to third because he recently underwent surgery to repair a stress fracture in his right foot.
That injury, along with a back issue, could keep the talented big man out of action his entire rookie season.
“For my back injury, it hurt me. But I saw the doctors and they said I was going to be fine,” Embiid said after getting drafted. “And unfortunately this foot injury happened a week before the draft. But I believe in God and God knew what he was doing, I’ve always said that and I’m going to just keep praising him.”
During his lone season at Kansas, Embiid dominated opponents. He averaged 11.2 points and 8.1 rebounds while blocking 72 shots.
Last season, the 76ers selected center Nerlens Noel, who sat out the entire season as he recovered from a torn ACL.
