SIXERS’ JOJO EMBIID: NO 5-ON-5 YET BUT ‘I’LL BE READY FOR CAMP!’

By Jack Ryan

Sixers center Joel Embiid played in just 31 games last season a knee injury, but told The Undefeated’s Marc J. Spears that he expects to be ready for training camp.

Embiid, a counselor at a Basketball Without Borders camp before Saturday’s NBA Africa Game in Johannesburg, South Africa, said he’s doing non-contact drills while recovering from a torn left meniscus, but he hasn’t been cleared to play 5-on-5 yet.

“I can do everything but play 5-on-5 and one-on-one,” Embiid told Spears. “I think I will be ready for training camp.”

The NBA All-Rookie first-team selection averaged 20.2 points, 7.8 rebounds, 2.5 blocks and 2.1 assists in 31 games last season.
