NBA: Joel Embiid would like to return this season, but has no timetable

Philadelphia 76ers star pivot Joel Embiid, who had knee surgery in early February, would like to return to the court this season, but does not want to put pressure on himself, he explained Thursday. Asked during a press briefing about a possible return this season, Embiid, last season’s MVP, replied: “That’s the idea. Obviously everything has to go well. There is no timetable, everything will depend on how my body reacts, how I feel.

Embiid, who is 29, had surgery on Feb. 6 for a lateral meniscus injury in his left knee and is scheduled to be re-examined next week, according to his franchise disclosure earlier this month. Since his injury on January 30 against Golden State, the Sixers have won four matches in twelve contested meetings. They are in 6th place in the East (33 wins – 25 losses).

“I love basketball, I want to be on the floor as much as possible. No matter our ranking, I just want to help (...) but everything will depend on how I feel,” insisted the pivot with three passports (Cameroonian, American and French), who is applying for the Paris Olympic Games (July 26). - August 11) with Team USA. The NBA regular season ends in mid-April, then the play-offs will lead to the finals in June. Before his injury, Embiid peaked at the top of the NBA scoring rankings with an average of 35.3 points. He reached 70 points in a franchise-record game on January 22 against San Antonio.
