76ers' Joel Embiid: Minutes restriction up to 28 minutes
Embiid will have his minutes restriction raised to 28 minutes, Tom Moore of Calkins Media reports.
This is fairly significant for the big man, as head coach Brett Brown said earlier in November that it wouldn't be until around Christmas when Embiid would have his minutes restriction raised again. So, it looks like this is a good sign for Embiid's health and comfort on the court. More minutes likely means a lot more production from the big man out of Kansas, who has still managed to average 18.2 points and 7.8 rebounds despite playing just under 23 minutes per game.
