Conflicting Reports Surface About Severity Of Embiid's Setback

New, comments

Surgery may or may not be on the table, depending on who you ask.

Kyle Terada-USA TODAY Sports

In the aftermath of a Saturday night, 10PM press release crushing the hopes and dreams of Sixers fans and replacing those gaps with alcohol or something maybe harder, the actual details of the injury and the setback were unknown. After today, well, we still don't know anything, as separate reports indicate that surgery may or may not be on the table.

The first report came from 6ABC's (Philadelphia's ABC local station) Jeff Skversky:

That's good! No surgery!

Except maybe not? John Gonzalez's (of CSN Philly) sources say otherwise:

So at the end of the day? We don't really know more, though Gonzo has a longer history of reporting on Sixers news. As always with this team and big men, we're playing a waiting game. The gist is: at this point, until the team confirms otherwise, we don't know what will happen. And good luck getting a straight answer out of the team.
