76ers' Joel Embiid: Feeling good as workouts continue
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Embiid (foot) continues to progress as expected and remains focused on getting back in playing shape for the start of training camp, Keith Pompey of the Philadelphia Inquirer reports. "We know [Embiid's] healthy," said Sixers assistant Lloyd Pierce. "He's been in a great spot the past couple of months...he's just trying to get in basketball conditioning, [work on his] basketball skills and feel comfortable on the floor."

Though the 7-foot-2 center was cleared for five-on-five scrimmaging in late June, the Sixers declined to let him play in the Las Vegas Summer League so as not to risk another setback with his right foot, which has cost him the last two seasons due to fractures that required surgery. He's set to make his debut in 2016-17 if his health prevails in training camp, but in addition to facing ample competition in the frontcourt from the likes of Nerlens Noel, Jahlil Okafor, Jerami Grant and Dario Saric, Embiid will also likely have significant minute restrictions.

76ers' Joel Embiid: Cleared to resume light scrimmaging
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Embiid (foot) has been cleared to resume light scrimmaging in five-on-five settings, Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo! Sports reports.

Embiid has spent the last year rehabbing a fractured navicular bone in his right foot, and after taking part in multiple non-contact workouts over the last several weeks, the Sixers will begin to turn him loose a little. The center, who has yet to make his NBA debut since being drafted No. 3 overall in 2014, won't suit up for the Sixers' entry in the Las Vegas Summer League, but he's expected to travel with the team. The organization appears optimistic that Embiid will be a full participant in training camp this fall.

76ers' Joel Embiid: Will skip out on summer league
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Sixers GM Bryan Colangelo officially ruled Embiid (foot) out of the Las Vegas Summer League, but said the center would travel with the team, Brian Seltzer of Sixers.com reports.

Colangelo acknowledged that Embiid is looking "more fluid" in controlled settings of late, and has even been doing some 2-on-2 and 3-on-3 work. The Sixers likely want to ease Embiid into full activities before training camp begins, and because playing in the summer league would interrupt that, he'll just remain with the team in an observational capacity.

76ers' Joel Embiid: Not likely to play in summer league contests
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Sixers GM Bryan Colangelo said that while no decision has been made on Embiid's availability for summer league, it appears unlikely the center will be cleared to play, NBA.com's Scott Howard-Cooper reports. "There's no timeline [for Embiid to play in summer league]. But until I hear a doctor tell me 'No summer league,' I will always say anything's open. But the likelihood of him playing summer league is nil."

Embiid hasn't hit any unexpected setbacks since undergoing a second procedure last August to address a broken navicular bone in his right foot, but the Sixers continue to proceed cautiously with the big man, who has yet to make his NBA debut since getting drafted No. 3 overall in 2014. After such an extended absence, it probably wouldn't be ideal for Embiid to get thrust back into a competitive setting right away, so training camp seems like a more likely time when Embiid will be able to resume full-contact work on the court.

76ers' Joel Embiid: Progressing with rehab
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Embiid (foot) is expected to begin 2-on-2 scrimmaging later this week, Tom Moore of the Courier Times reports.

Embiid went through a workout available to the media on Monday, where he was seen shooting free throws, taking jumpers and even throwing down some dunks. He's progressed to the point where he's getting in a bunch of on-court work, however, he's yet to start scrimmaging. That's next on the schedule for Embiid, who's expected to begin 2-on-2 work later this week. It's a move in the right direction for Embiid, who the Sixers are still hoping will be available for the season opener in the fall. Embiid remains without a concrete timetable for a return, however, so we should see his progress monitored further throughout the summer.
