Philadelphia 76ers center Joel Embiid, who left with a left knee injury, is also considering surgery.
Citing multiple sources, “The Athletic” reported Embiid’s situation on the 4th (Korean time).라바카지노
According to the report, Embiid was diagnosed with a displacement of the cover of the meniscus in his left knee. The Athletic quoted experts as saying this was a type of meniscus rupture.
The treatment plan has not been finalized. The medical staff, the 76ers club, and the player himself are continuing to discuss.
As with any injury, there are two choices: rehabilitation and surgery. Choosing surgery will provide more reliable treatment, but it will increase the length of your absence.
The Athletic said Embiid will make a decision by Monday local time.
Embiid injured his knee during an away game against the Golden State Warriors on Jan. 31.
During the competition, Jonathan Kuminga fell and sat on his left knee. Embiid later complained of severe pain.
Embiid has been suffering from knee pain all season. As of Tuesday, he missed 13 games.
He has averaged 35.3 points, 11.3 rebounds, and 5.7 assists in 34 games this season, but the possibility of winning the MVP award has been overcome by this injury.
This is because NBA labor and management have agreed to grant individual awards such as MVP only to players who have played more than 65 games ahead of this season.
The revision was aimed at Embiid. Embiid won the MVP award after playing only 66 games last season.
The 66 games were the fewest games an MVP has played since Bill Walton (58 games) in the 1977-78 season, except for the season shortened by labor-management disputes and the pandemic.
Embiid’s absence is also a big blow to Philadelphia, which currently ranks fifth in the Eastern Conference with 30 wins and 17 losses. Philadelphia is 4 wins and 9 losses in games without him.
