76ers center Joel Embiid suffered a setback with his foot injury.
an NBA source told me surgery is still being discussed. If Embiid requires another surgery, the 7-foot-1 center will probably be sidelined for a second straight season.
Jeff Skversky of WPVI-TV Philadelphia on Sunday:
It’s unclear whether Lynam and Skversky are getting conflicting information or whether surgery seemed possible Saturday but was ruled out a day later.
Hopefully, Embiid won’t need surgery. He already missed all of last season. To miss another season would be devastating.
Either way, expect the 76ers to proceed with caution.
