After a long period of silence from 76ers GM Sam Hinkie, fans finally got a statement updating the status of injured center Joel Embiid.
The Sixers twitter account also posted statements from two other experts who have followed Embiid’s health closely.
Joel posted the following image to his Instagram account this evening, with the caption “EVERYTHING WENT REALLY WELL….. Excited for the future #BELIEVE #JE21 #Sixers”
Embiid is still expected to miss the entirety of the 2015-2016 season, but fans can take solace in the fact that all the news from his latest surgery appears to be positive so far.
