Joel Embiid expects to be ready for 76ers training camp

Philadelphia 76ers center Joel Embiid, who has played in just 31 games during his first three years in the NBA because of foot and knee injuries, said he expects to be ready for training camp.

Embiid said he's doing non-contact drills while recovering from a torn left meniscus, but he hasn't been cleared to play 5-on-5 yet.

The NBA All-Rookie first-team selection averaged 20.2 points, 7.8 rebounds, 2.5 blocks and 2.1 assists in 31 games last season.
