Embiid (foot) took the court for some shooting drills Tuesday, CSN Philadelphia's Jessica Camerato reports. While the Sixers didn't provide an update on Embiid's condition, coach Brett Brown beamed about the center's progress in his recovery from a second right foot procedure. "I think everybody sort of sees more of him for a reason," Brown said. "We think he's heading in a really, really positive direction, both physically and mentally. We're going at a pace that we're all happy with. We understand how crucial it is that we don't miss a beat and he does, too."

Embiid is set to miss a second straight season while he recovers from surgery, but all indications from the team brass are that his rehab has been going as expected. The Sixers are a long ways off figuring out how to fit Embiid in with Nerlens Noel and Jahlil Okafor, but they'll have all offseason to ponder different ideas.
