Key Facts

  • The surgery "will address a displaced flap of the meniscus and he will be sidelined for (an) extended period of time," according to The Athletic, and "the door isn't closed" on a return this season, per ESPN.
  • And given Embiid's injury history, and how big he is, and how hard it's been for him in the past to remain in peak physical shape when sidelined for an extended period of time, well, it would be stunning to see him suit up at any point before next fall.
  • Before the injury, Embiid was having an all-time season, and seemed like a lock to take home the MVP award for the second-straight season.
  • Nikola Jokic is the new favorite (and if he does win it, he'd become just the ninth player in NBA history to win three MVPs), but there's also room now for players like Shai Gilgeous-Alexander and Kawhi Leonard to swoop in.
