Joel Embiid Out Indefinitely With Knee Injury In Sixers Star's Latest Setback

Joel Embiid Out Indefinitely With Knee Injury In Sixers Star's Latest Setback

The Sixers did not reveal Embiid was suffering from a meniscus tear until February 13th.

In what has become his first National Basketball Association season, the 22-year-old has appeared in a total of 31 games as member of the 76ers. Even operating under a minutes restriction meant to preserve his body, Embiid was a revelation in the first half of the season, averaging 20.2 points, 7.8 rebounds, 2.5 blocks and 2.1 assists in just 25.4 minutes of floor time while shooting 36.7 percent from the 3-point line and proving to be a legitimate defensive deterrent in the paint, blowing away the competition and looking to have cemented Rookie of the Year honors before the All-Star break.

The up-and-coming big man has appeared in just one game for the 76ers since all the way back on January 20.

On the other hand, the 76ers also released a statement regarding injured forward Ben Simmons on Monday morning. He still experiences swelling and soreness in the knee following practices.

More news: Mavericks' Andrew Bogut traded to 76ers

Embiid, who went through a full practice with the Sixers on Thursday, has missed the last 13 games and 16 of 17 due to the knee since injuring it January 20 vs. the Trail Blazers. The team last week announced Simmons, the No. 1 overall pick in last year's draft, would miss the entire season.

The Sixers acquired Andrew Bogut in the Noel deal, but he is expected to get bought out by the team, per ESPN.com's Marc Stein and Tim MacMahon.

Simmons fractured his foot on September 30, the final day of pre-season training camp.
