Sixers big man Joel Embiid will undergo surgery on Tuesday which is expected to keep him sidelined for the entire 2015-16 season.

According to reports, Embiid will undergo the second surgery to address the navicular bone in his right foot, thee bone graft procedure on his foot similar to the one that Kevin Durant recently had in March, so hopefully he will be able to make a full recovery in time for next season.

Sources said the delay from the original 7-10 day timetable were due to Embiid coming to terms with having to have a second surgery and miss yet another season.
