Injured former Kansas center Joel Embiid, selected by Philadelphia with the third overall pick in the NBA Draft on Thursday night, is likely to remain sidelined until February and perhaps miss the entire upcoming season while recovering from surgery to repair a stress fracture in his right foot. "I've seen reported, some [say] four to six months," Hinkie said. "That's not the number I heard. The number I heard from the surgeon himself was five to eight months. Guess what our approach will be?" Delaware News Journal
