Joel Embiid to Undergo Surgery for Meniscus Injury, Faces Extended Absence

Philadelphia 76ers’ standout center, Joel Embiid, is scheduled for knee surgery to address a meniscus injury in his left knee, as reported by ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski. 

The surgery, taking place this week, will keep Embiid out for an unspecified duration, with the team yet to provide a clear timeline for his return.

It’s possible for a comeback in the current NBA season, but we need more information after the surgery for specific details. Embiid’s absence is a setback for the 76ers, who have struggled with a 4-10 record in games without him. 

Also the surgery likely dashes his MVP aspirations due to the league’s 65-game requirement for major awards and All-NBA honors.
