Embiid to see minutes in the teens

Embiid to see minutes in the teens

Actually, the exact phrase Embiid used to describe the minutes restriction was "f***ing bulls***". The Sixers were extremely rigid with his nightly minutes restriction, with the big man not once eclipsing the 30-minute mark.

Embiid didn't play a single game in the first two seasons of his National Basketball Association career due to various injuries, and even while putting up incredible numbers during the 31 games he played last season, he was limited to 25 minutes per game. Two months later, he suffered a season-ending knee injury - this after foot ailments cost him the first two years of his career.

Yes, the first pick is a second-teamer, in large part because of shoulder and knee ailments that limited him to two preseason games. "But they're making a decision based on what they think". Everyone is being careful here, but that's definitely not what Sixers fans wanted to hear.

The fun only goes as far as Embiid's brittle body allows.

Embiid was on a restriction last season, in the mid 20s, and averaged an unbelievable 20.2 points, 7.8 rebounds and 2.5 blocks in just over 25 minutes per game. 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. The 76ers are one of the most exciting teams this season and Embiid is an enormous reason why, but if less of Embiid now will mean more of him later, it's a sacrifice that has to be made.

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

"That's bulls***", he said on his minutes restriction, according to Kyle Neubeck of The Philly Voice.

The Sixers can't wait to find out over a full season.

Ben Simmons, J.J. Redick, and Markelle Fultz are all expected to make their debuts for the Sixers on Wednesday.

The Wizards' aim is much higher: The franchise is trying to win 50 games or reach the conference finals for the first time since Washington did both back in 1978-79. "But I think that's BS". "We are going to discuss it". "I wish I was playing more minutes".
