With the No. 3 overall pick in the 2014 NBA Draft the Philadelphia 76ers select….
Trust in Hinkie guys, just trust him. Joel Embiid has the potential to be the next Hakeem Olajuwon. Seriously, it’s gonna be okay. He’ll sit out most of the year, but everything is going to be okay. Just trust in Hinkie.
Joell Embiid will sit out until January, maybe longer, but he will be in a Sixers uniform. Remember, this is for the long haul. If Embiid is shelved then it gives the Sixers another opportunity to keep their first-round pick in 2015 and have that pick be a lottery pick again. We might have to endure a tough season again next year, but it will all workout in the end. This isn’t a quick fix, we all knew this would be long and hard. Just trust in the man who’s making the moves.
Sixers apparently found no red flags with Embiid's medical records. Feel the foot is a non-issue.

This is huge, this is exactly why the 76ers took Embiid. He’s going to recover and come back to be one of the best centers in the league.
