Joel Embiid Undergoes Hand Surgery

Sixers star center Joel Embiid underwent surgery on his left hand on Friday and will be reevaluated in 1-2 weeks, Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN tweets.

The reevaluation period was the same that the Sixers projected prior to the surgery.

Embiid opted for surgery after suffering a torn radial collateral ligament of the fourth metacarpal in his left hand. He dislocated his ring finger on Monday.

Embiid, 25, has averaged 23.4 PPG, 12.3 RPG, and 3.3 APG in 31 games this season. The Sixers moved Al Horford to the center spot and inserted Mike Scott at power forward in his absence on Thursday, when they defeated the Celtics.
