The Philadelphia 76ers has held out Joel Embiid for the past few games after the talented big man suffered a slight tear on his meniscus. Apparently, with all the games he has been missing as a precaution, Embiid got bored and… danced on stage at a Meek Mill concert.
Needless to say, the Sixers brass is not happy about it.
Via CSN Philly:
“It’s not the best thing to see when you wake up on Saturday morning and find out that was the case because I know the reaction,” Colangelo said of the video that surfaced of Embiid dancing, shirtless, at the show. “I understand some of the potential concern out there.”
Here’s his comments about the injury.
“There was also the recognition that there was a very minor meniscal tear. But it was not thought to be acute and it was not thought to be the source of the pain, inflammation or symptoms. That is the case.”
Since the tear is not believed to be acute, the injury “likely or could have been pre-existing,” according to Colangelo. Embiid is being treated for the bone bruise, Colangelo said.
We understand Colangelo’s concerns but isn’t dancing a part of his rehab? Well, why not simply #TrustTheProcess?
