Joel Embiid Undergoes Double Surgery

In addition to the concussion and broken orbital bone he suffered in the playoffs, Philadelphia 76ers center Joel Embiid also played through most of the postseason with a torn thumb ligament. Today, he had surgery to repair that, and another issue with his other hand.

Embiid was hampered by the thumb throughout much of their first-round series with the Toronto Raptors, and their Conference Semifinal against the Miami Heat. Meanwhile, his facial fracture will apparently not require surgery.

The 5-time All-Star and MVP runner-up this season, Embiid should be fully healthy for training camp. He finished the season as the league's leading scorer with 30.6 points per game, along with 11.7 rebounds and 4.2 assists
