As the trade winds begin to blow around Jahlil Okafor, news came out regarding the health of Joel Embiid's left knee. 

According to Derek Bodner, Joel Embiid has a torn meniscus in his left knee. Accrding to Sixers general manager Bryan Colangelo, the injury is "very minor" and he is not expected to require surgery as a result of it.


Embiid has missed 11 out of the team’s last 12 games, including last night's win over the Heat. It’s likely that he remains sidelined through the All-Star break, and will not appear in the Rising Stars game or the skills challenge.
