Philadelphia 76ers center Joel Embiid will undergo surgery to repair the torn meniscus in his left knee.
The team announced pending procedure Sunday evening in a statement.
“Joel Embiid will have a corrective procedure this week to address an injury to the lateral meniscus in his left knee. An update will be provided following the procedure,” the statement reads.
A specific timeline won’t be set until after the operation, but the procedure is expected to sideline him for an extended period of time,” ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski reports.
