In New York Joel Embiid consulted a specialist surgery hospital and after a routine CT scan, the result showed that the healing was not as fast as anticipated, so he flew to North Carolina for a second opinion from an orthopaedic specialist who recommended a second procedure on his navicular bone.

On his first surgery, the young athlete had 2 screws inserted into his foot. Dr. Richard Ferkel, from the Southern California Orthopaedic Institute, reported “the surgery went well and I’m confident that after appropriate healing he will be able to return to NBA basketball,” back in June of last year. He then gave an educated guess of about 4 to 6 months for his recuperation.

One year later, the healing process, not only did not complete, but now, a second surgery is needed.

Although Embiid had expressed, at last month’s draft, that his foot did not bother him at all in quite a few weeks, it remains unclear what went wrong.

He says, “I can’t believe how good I feel. I’ve felt great for a while. It’s hard to believe something could be wrong.”
