Joel Embiid expects to return to court in 2-3 weeks

Joel Embiid expects to return to court in 2-3 weeks

With the quartet of Ben Simmons, Joel Embiid, Dario Saric and Jahlil Okafor now leading the way for the 76ers, it appears that the once heralded franchise is finally headed in the right direction.

It's no secret that the Philadelphia 76ers star has a thing for the pop star, and on Tuesday he got a chance to make a pitch directly to a good friend of Rihanna's. "... I'm 7-2. I'm good-looking".

Will Rihanna give Embiid a shot? Women usually love my accent because I'm from Cameroon in Africa.

"I'm doing great", Embiid said of his status during an interview with ESPN's Cassidy Hubbarth.

The job cuts are expected to be voluntary through the use of early retirement and separation packages, a Ford spokesman said. Ford announced the $3 billion cost cutting goal at the same time it reported sharply lower first quarter earnings.

Embiid first crossed paths with Rihanna some time ago. I was pretty lucky. "When we start getting good, that's when Cleveland and LeBron will start going down", Embiid said Tuesday, according to the Philadelphia Inquirer. Whether he was downing pink lemonade or expressing his love for Shirley Temples, Embiid made it clear he couldn't get enough.

Embiid added that the Sixers could be "ready to win" as soon as next season.

Seriously, though, now almost three years removed from becoming the No. 3 pick in the draft, Embiid, who averaged 20.2 points, 7.8 rebounds and 2.1 assists for the Sixers in just 25.4 minutes a game, appears on schedule to return for the 2017-18 season.
