76ers Have “Some Hope” Joel Embiid Can Return To Play In Late March


According to various reports, the Philadelphia 76ers are optimistic that their star center Joel Embiid will be able to return from his left knee injury before the end of the regular season. Embiid, who was leading the NBA in scoring before he got hurt, underwent a procedure on Feb. 6 to repair a torn meniscus. The initial timeline for his recovery was four weeks, but the team has not given a specific date for his comeback.

Some sources have suggested that there is “some hope” that Embiid will be back on the court by late March, which would give him enough time to regain his rhythm and chemistry with his teammates before the playoffs.



The Sixers, who are currently sixth in the Eastern Conference standings, are hoping that Embiid can resume his dominant form and lead them to a deep postseason run.

Embiid, who is averaging 35.3 points, 11.3 rebounds, and 5.7 assists, was considered the frontrunner for the MVP award this season, before missing out on the 65-game minimum due to his injury. Nonetheless, he has been instrumental in the Sixers’ success, as they have a 26-8 record with him and a 7-17 record without him. 

The Sixers are confident that they have the pieces to contend for the championship this season, but they know that their chances depend largely on Embiid’s health and availability. They are eagerly awaiting his return and hoping that he can pick up where he left off.
