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.
Simmons (foot) has been cleared for full basketball activities, Tom Moore of GateHouse Media reports.
According to the report, Simmons has actually been cleared "for some time", so it sounds like he was already taking part in full basketball activities earlier in the summer. That means he should be a full go for training camp, though the Sixers could ultimately take a cautious approach and limit his workload a bit prior to the opener. While Simmons was originally expected to start at point guard during the upcoming campaign, the Sixers ended up drafting point guard Markelle Fultz with the first overall pick of the 2017 NBA Draft and then signed shooting guard J.J. Redick during free agency. That likely means Simmons will start the year at small forward, though he'll surely get some time as the lead guard at certain points this season. With how careful the Sixers were with Joel Embiid last year, it wouldn't be surprising if Simmons saw some restrictions on his playing time early on.
