76ers' Joel Embiid: Will take part in training camp, could be limited
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Sixers GM Brian Colangelo said Wednesday that Embiid (knee) will participate when the Sixers open training camp next week, though it's unclear if he'll be fully cleared, Derek Bodner of The Athletic reports.

The news surrounding Embiid, who's working back from surgery to repair a torn meniscus, has been mostly positive, though the Sixers have remained hyper-conservative, in their own words, throughout the recovery process. Colangelo went on to say that Embiid "will be out there for the first game" but also noted that it's possible he could face a minutes restriction, as was the case last season. While that could ultimately be what's best for Embiid's long-term health, a minutes restriction would almost certainly hamper his fantasy value, which is already rather volatile given his injury history.

76ers' Joel Embiid: Not yet cleared for 5-on-5, regimen 'hyper-conservative'
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Embiid (knee) has yet to be cleared for 5-on-5 scrimmaging, with general manager Bryan Colangelo adding that his regimen is 'hyper-conservative' and 'criteria-based', Brian Seltzer of Sixers.com reports.

On a positive note, there have reportedly been no setbacks for the 76ers' star big man. The team is, understandably, exercising extreme caution with Embiid, as the team's offseason additions and the debut of Ben Simmons could certainly send them several slots up the Eastern Conference standings in 2017-18. Embiid should be considered day-to-day up to training camp, with more timetable information likely coming after he meets with the medical staff.

76ers' Joel Embiid: Still not cleared for contact
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Embiid (knee) has not yet been cleared for full-court, contact workouts, the Bucks County Courier Times reports.

While 2016 No. 1 pick Ben Simmons was recently cleared to return to full basketball activity, Embiid remains restricted as he works back from a torn meniscus, which kept him out of most of the second half of the season. The Sixers still expect Embiid to return to full activity prior to the start of camp, but with the regular season roughly a month-and-a-half away, there's reason to be at least somewhat concerned about the big man's availability.

76ers' Joel Embiid: Expects to be ready by training camp
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Embiid (knee) is performing non-contact drills and expects to be cleared for full-contact 5-on-5 by training camp, Marc J. Spears of ESPN.com reports.

Things seem to be progressing well for Embiid in his rehabilitation after undergoing surgery back in late March to address a meniscus tear in his left knee. The 76ers are likely planning to play it as safe as possible with their star-potential big man, but apparently are prepared to run him through full-contact activity once training camp kicks off. He projects to be the starting center for the team, as he posted 20.2 points, 7.8 rebounds, 2.5 blocks and 2.1 assists across 25.4 minutes per game last season.

76ers' Joel Embiid: Will be held out of summer league
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Embiid (knee) will not play in summer league, Keith Pompey of the Philadelphia Inquirer reports.

Embiid played just 31 games last season due to scheduled rest and a variety of injuries, and given the big man's injury history, the team is remaining as cautious as possible with their franchise big man. Look for another update surrounding Embiid's status to come following summer league and near the start of training camp, as the 76ers will likely have a better idea by then of his status for the 2017-18 regular season.
