Another day, more discouraging news for Sixers fans.
Brett Brown said at Monday’s practice that the team plans to limit Joel Embiid to just 20 minutes or less to start the season:
“I don’t really know if there’s a solid number. I can tell if you were to choose a number, it’s somewhere in the teens.”
“There will be some minutes restrictions, but it’s also a judgment of how is the game being played, not just looking at rote, rigid number,” Brown said.
Embiid, who apparently found out about this minute restriction from the media, reacted to the news:
