Ramona Shelburne: A little context on Joel Embiid’s return from what should really be described as a broken face. He’s gonna start riding a bike & walking on a treadmill this weekend. You have to ramp up the exertion level of cardio slowly when coming back from these types of injuries. Once Embiid can do more intense cardio, he can do the exertion test to clear concussion protocol. The healing of the facial fracture is hard to predict. I’m told there’s “hope” he can get back for playoffs but expecting him for Game 1 isn’t something to speculate on yet.

The 76ers have taken hits for their lack of transparency. And Thursday morning’s shootaround at Asphalt Green might be a reason for more. Or maybe center Joel Embiid just didn’t tell anyone why his left wrist was taped up. The all-star obviously knows why. However, he did not speak to the media after the shootaround. So coach Brett Brown was asked what’s wrong with Embiid’s wrist. ”I don’t think anything,” Brown said before spotting Embiid as he exited the gym. “I see that it’s taped. I don’t know. I see that it’s taped, but I don’t know that.”

Brown has said he doesn’t want the GM job, too, preferring to go back to focusing solely on coaching. Of the current front office executives, Marc Eversley, vice president of player personnel, is regarded as the best candidate for the GM job. Co-owner David B. Heller could continue to have a huge say regardless of who the Sixers hire.
