Bryan Colangelo Rumors

After announcing earlier in the day that the Sixers phenom would be kept out indefinitely due to soreness and swelling in his right knee, host Michael Barkann asked Colangelo why the team wouldn’t just have surgery on Embiid and get it over with. “Are you a doctor now?” Colangelo shot back at the host. “With all due respect, medical injuries are injuries that require care and attention.” “When I take information that comes from the medical team, including doctors and the training staff and the physiotherapists, we apply it as instructed and we do that to protect the athlete,” Colangelo added. “In a case of jumping into someone’s knee to operate, when the circumstances are known but the conditions and how he’s reacting to certain things are still unknown, I think you go through the planned progression of steps as prescribed and evaluated by doctors, not by a general manager and certainly not by a television co-host.”
