Joel Embiid explodes at his 'f-king bulls-t' minute restriction

Joel Embiid explodes at his 'f-king bulls-t' minute restriction

The 76ers are taking a cautious approach to Joel Embiid's playing time early on in the 2017-18 National Basketball Association season.

Embiid (ankle) said Tuesday that he expects to play approximately 16 minutes in the Sixers' season opener Wednesday against the Wizards, Jessica Camerato of NBA Sports Philadelphia reports.

But given the precedent that was set previous year when the minutes restriction was first introduced, his playing time has the chance to increase rapidly if Embiid shows he's able to stay on the floor.

"That's (bleeping) B.S.", Embiid said via Crossing Broad's Kevin Kinkead. Actually, you will. "Like I always say", he finished, "you've got to trust the process". Hopes are high for a Sixers team loaded with talent that hopes two of its biggest players - Embiid and Ben Simmons - will stay in the lineup and make a big impact this year. "I don't really know if there's a solid number", said Brown, via The Philadelphia Inquirer. "I didn't know about that". Brown and the newly installed medical team headlined by Dr. Daniel Medina likely have yet to see enough on-court work to justify allowing him to play more. "I feel great. Hopefully that changes based on today's practice and tomorrow's practice". Last season, Brett Brown had Embiid on a minutes restriction, and that's going to continue this year. But at the same time, that's me only playing four minutes a quarter, and just sitting there getting cold, and my body not being ready to go if I have to wait 8-10 minutes and then got to go finish the game, too. But by the end of November, Embiid was already up to playing around 28 minutes per game, with some additional leeway if the Sixers were engaged in a tight game during the final minutes. When active, Embiid averaged 20.2 points, 7.8 rebounds and 2.5 blocks despite playing just 25.4 minutes per game. It turns out that this season, he'll still be handled carefully - despite his desire to play more.
