One is the health of superstar big man Joel Embiid.
While Embiid still averaged 30.4 points and 12.7 rebounds against the Hawks, he shot 46.9% from the floor.
“I think we’re all super impressed with what Joel was able to do,” said Daryl Morey on Tuesday. “I think everyone saw that. I don’t think it was a conditioning thing. I think it was more a health thing.”
In terms of the next steps of the recovery process, Morey stated Embiid is weighing his options and they will take the necessary steps.
