76ers not yet ready to rule Joel Embiid out for season
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

The 76ers are still not ready to rule rookie center Joel Embiid out for the season, according to The Intelligencer. In fact, alll Philadelphia coach Brett Brown will do is say Embiid, who is recovering from a stress fracture in his foot, will not be back until after the mid-February All-Star game.

“We're not prepared to give any further timeline right now,” Brown said. “I go right back to how we handled (Noel) Nerlens. I think everybody's got to see how we're treating our guys and the risk involved when somebody is not 100 percent, especially with a man of (Embiid's) size.”

Embiid has been doing standstill shooting and off-court cardio work to improve his conditioning.

“It's been well-documented we're trying to get him in the shape that he knows he has to be, weight-wise etc., and that will reflect when we deliver him to the court and the marketplace,” Brown said. “We won't risk anything.”

Sixers coach Brown: Joel Embiid needs to work on conditioning
by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com

76ers coach Brett Brown told reporters that rookie center Joel Embiid will need to shed a few pounds and improve his diet while recovering from a foot stress fracture, the Intelligencer reports. He took part in some standstill shooting prior to Monday's home win over the Cavaliers. Embiid, the No. 3 overall pick in this year's draft, could be in danger of missing the entire season.

"The challenge is always going to be, physically, to make sure we get him streamlined and thin -- as thin as his frame can hold up," Brown said. "That's our focus right now -- zeroing in on his health and diet."

Joel Embiid hoping to play this season
by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com

76ers rookie center Joel Embiid told reporters on media day that he's hoping to play this season, per the Philadelphia Inquirer. Embiid injured his back while landing awkwardly late last season in college for the Kansas Jayhawks.

General manager Sam Hinkie has not closed the door on the possibility of Embiid playing this season. That said, he remains without a timetable for return.

"I don't know at this point. Right now, he's in Philly and visiting with a variety of our medical professionals and going through tests," Hinkie said. "He'll get a good baseline and then we'll put together a rehab plan. He's still in a boot. He was shooting threes on one leg in our gym [Monday]. I don't know how it will play out. We'll take an approach without knowing where the finish line is. We want to know how we can be sure to put him in a position to have a long NBA career. However long [rehab] takes will be however long it takes."
