Player Outlook

Joel Embiid could become the best big man in Fantasy some day, but that is seeming less and less likely by the day. Embiid is expected to miss his second season in a row as a result of a fractured foot, meaning the talented big man won't make his NBA debut until he turns 22, two full years after he was drafted by the 76ers. He has no value in re-draft leagues and you have to severely discount him in dynasty leagues as well at this point, sadly.
