76ers' Jahlil Okafor: Takes part in full scrimmage

Okafor (knee) took part in a full scrimmage at Monday's practice, Philly Mag reports.

It was the first time Okafor has participated in full since September 30, when he began experiencing soreness in his right knee. The Duke product, who underwent surgery in March to repair a torn meniscus, indicated after Monday's practice that the knee is no longer an issue. "My knee is feeling better than what it did at training camp in my first 5-on-5," Okafor said. "Now the priority is seeing how I recover and how I feel tomorrow when I wake up." Coach Brett Brown echoed that sentiment: "There is nothing wrong with the knee," Brown said. "It's just a matter of getting through some inevitable pain from time to time." Okafor continues to target a return for the regular season opener on Oct. 26, and it's unclear if he'll be able to participate in the team's final exhibition contest Friday in Miami.
