The 76ers are close to making a decision that will dictate center Joel Embiid’s immediate and long-term future, general manager Sam Hinkie said in a news conference Friday morning. Hinkie said that another surgery has not been ruled out as an option, and that he can’t see Embiid playing in either of the Sixers’ two summer league teams.

General Manager Sam Hinkie addressed Embiid’s health during his post-draft press conference today. While Hinkie was not able to provide much certainty on the big man’s future — they’re still in the process of getting opinions from various medical professionals around the world — Hinkie did say he did not expect Embiid to participate in summer league. “I don’t see how he’d play in summer league. [Those are] not the kind of conversations we’ve been having,” Hinkie said.
