Now that Joel Embiid is back from his two trips to Qatar after receiving stem cells or robotic implants or whatever, he’s doing more than ever before. From a tipster at PCOM who did not want to be named– take with a grain of salt:
“Embiid is fully practicing with the team today. Just seen him doing sprints up and down the court. That therapy he got in Qatar looks like it definitely paid off. Idk when he got back state side but this is the first time I’ve seen him at PCOM in a while.
I heard them all [the media] whispering about Embiid. He’s actually live scrimmaging right now with the rest of the team. I’ve never seen him do that before.
They have a timer and legit referee and everything. He’s definitely coming back next season.”
Before his re-injury, Embiid had worked up to playing 4-on-4 in practice. We’re not sure if he’s up to 5-on-5 now. JoJo has not spoken to media in a long time, since he is not required to do so unless he is participating in 5-on-5 activities. If this, um, report(?) is true, we could hear from our great Cameroonian hope soon.
