Philadelphia 76er's Center Joel Embiid set to make comeback since knee surgery

Analyzed Sports | Andre’ Chapman

Philadelphia 76er’s center Joel Embiid will make his comeback after undergoing knee surgery in March from tearing his meniscus in his left knee. He was cleared by doctors for five on five drills but has not stepped on the court just yet for the start of the NBA Preseason.

Embiid, the third overall pick in the NBA 2014 draft hasn’t played in an NBA game since January 27th, 2017 due to his knee injury.  Joel has been riddled with injuries since being drafted out of Kansas, even missing his first two NBA seasons.

The 23-year-old, who played in 31 games last season, was able to average 20 points and 7.8 rebounds before his season-ending injury.

This Year NBA Season does not start until October 18th, so head coach Brett Brown will take things slowly with Embiid to ensure a successful comeback after many setbacks for the talented center.   Will Joel last a full season?
