Joel Embiid takes pre and post-surgery selfies

Before Joel Embiid had surgery on his right foot this morning, Embiid seemed in good spirits as he took a pre-surgery selfie:

Embiid also took a post-surgery selfie:


Embiid took to Twitter yesterday to voice his thoughts on the setback:

“It’s all good GOD has a plan for all of us!!! MINOR setback for a MAJOR comeback. He knows what he’s doing.”

“Disappointment is inevitable…. Discouragement is a choice.”

Reports came out today that Embiid might be out 4-6 months before he can get back on the court and nine months until he gets back to game action. Which at that point, it’d be better to sit him for a whole year.

Most mock NBA Drafts have Embiid falling between the No. 4 and No. 10 picks. Although, it’s hard to believe Embiid will fall past the Celtics (No. 6) and Lakers (No. 7 pick).
