We are ten days into August and it has now been almost a month since the Sixers announced that Joel Embiid, their prized pick of the much hyped 2014 Draft would be having a second surgery on his injured right foot and would most likely be missing a second consecutive season as a result.
The news was a big blow to fans of the franchise eager to see him play, and of course to Embiid himself, who has been itching to play since he was selected by the Sixers last June.
At the time of the Hinkie’s official statement (released 7/11/15), the Sixers let it be known that they anticipated the surgery would take place within 7-10 days from the announcement.
Obviously that surgery has not happened.
