We still don’t know when the first time All-Star Joel Embiid will be back, an injury caused by Markelle Fultz. The center received an involuntary blow to the face by the rookie and suffered an orbital fracture that forced him to have surgical intervention.
Right after the intervention, which took place on March 30, ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski pointed out that the absence of the All-Star would be no more than two weeks. Now the situation is not very clear. Philadelphia has issued a statement in which he explains that the player is progressing adequately, but in turn points out that there is still no timetable to have him back on track.
The Pennsylvania franchise ensures that the surgeons are satisfied with the recovery of the affected and intervened area, but that the time of recovery still os hard to determine due to the complexity of the injury and the advisable return to action.
