Joel Embiid Expects To Return Next Week


Joel Embiid said he expects to return to the Philadelphia 76ers next week, according to Kieth Pompey of The Philadelphia Inquirer.

While speaking to reporters on Saturday, the All-Star center said it was his decision to take time off. He’s been working recently and doing some shooting. Embiid said his decision to sit out was because he felt like his knee was getting worse game by game.

As previously reported, Embiid has been out since the All-Star Game due to left knee soreness.

The Sixers are 3-1 since the All-Star break and Embiid has not played.
