Joel Embiid gives profane response to the 76ers' minute restriction

Joel Embiid gives profane response to the 76ers' minute restriction”

But Sixers coach Brett Brown said on Monday that Embiid might play even fewer minutes than he did last season, at least in the beginning.

After the 76ers said they will impose a minutes restriction on Embiid to start the season, Embiid blasted the decision to reporters on Tuesday, calling it "f--ing bull--".

Embiid, who has been a model citizen and lovable personality for Philadelphia, said he has a voice to object to his limited usage, but he still trusts the team. They've been extremely cautious with Embiid since he's been drafted and the goal is to build him into a guy that can continually go out and play 30+ minutes per game and 65+ games a year. I think I'm ready for more than whatever number they have.

He only played in 31 games previous year, and missed 164 games over two seasons (two entire campaigns) after recieving two foot surgeries after being drafted third overall in 2014. Brown and the newly installed medical team headlined by Dr. Daniel Medina likely have yet to see enough on-court work to justify allowing him to play more. But at the same time, that's me only playing four minutes a quarter, and just sitting there getting cold, and my body not being ready to go if I have to wait 8-10 minutes and then got to go finish the game, too.

This came as a surprise for Embiid, who didn't find out about his reduced role until reporters asked him about it on Monday. Over just 31 games, he averaged 25.4 minutes a game.

Between Joel Embiid's motivation to prove he doesn't need a minutes restriction to Ben Simmons finally being healthy after missing all of previous year, the Philadelphia 76ers are being considered a team to keep an eye on during the 2017-18 season when it comes to being a surprise contender. "But that's disappointing. I feel great, and hopefully that changes based on this practice and tomorrow's practice". "We are going to discuss it".

The Sixers handled Embiid with kid gloves last season.

Clearly the Sixers are nursing their most valuable players back to full strength.
