Report: Joel Embiid actually has surgery. For real this time


On July 11, the 76ers announced they anticipated Joel Embiid would undergo surgery within 7-10 days.

So, though Embiid’s surgery was reportedly scheduled for today, you’ll have to excuse me for wanting confirmation it actually happened.

Embiid will likely miss the upcoming season. It’s another crushing blow for the No. 3 pick in the 2014 draft. He already missed what would have been his rookie season with a foot injury, and there are major concerns about his career.

But – 38 days after Philadelphia’s announcement – at least the healing can begin.
