Joel Embiid calls minutes restriction 'f***ing bulls***'

Embiid spent most of this summer rehabbing last year's season-ending injury and didn't fully participate in practices to start training camp, although he has since appeared in two preseason games.

Sixers coach Brett Brown said Monday that there will be a minutes restriction for his star center starting with Wednesday night's season opener, though he didn't want to narrow it to a specific number.

With the minutes restriction in place, Embiid concedes that Brown has a tough job in figuring out when to use him in a game.

Eight months after minor surgery to fix the meniscus tear in his left knee, Embiid still isn't ready to go 25, 30, heck, even 20, minutes in his first regular-season game since January.

Yes, the first pick is a second-teamer, in large part because of shoulder and knee ailments that limited him to two preseason games.

Embiid also started last season in a very strict minutes restriction, which was slowly lifted after 10 games. Everyone is being careful here, but that's definitely not what Sixers fans wanted to hear.

Both are also said to have taken place during Trump's 2016 election campaign and his first six months in office. "A cold creepiness rarely seen".

The Sixers actually do want to win this year - and the Embiid extension paired with big contracts for J.J. Redick and others implies they are going to try to make a run at a playoff spot in a weak Eastern Conference. He's one of the best players in the National Basketball Association, but he's really fragile so they have to be careful how they play him.

Mike Dunleavy, who coached four National Basketball Association teams, was awed the first time he saw Embiid in 2014 at a pre-draft workout held by former agent Arn Tellem. "You watch him play, how quick he was off his feet".

"I always think I have a voice so I'm sure they're listening to what I have to say too", he said.

The biggest surprise here is that the news came as a shock to Embiid.

The Sixers can't wait to find out over a full season. "We are going to discuss it".

John Wall, a perennial All-Star, Beal are the 1-2 punch in the backcourt Fultz and Simmons hope they can become.
