Joel Embiid To Miss NBA Draft With Broken Foot

Joel Embiid, the likely number one overall draft pick of the Cleveland Cavaliers has suffered a stress fracture in the navicular bone of his right foot and agent Arn Tellem says he will miss the NBA Draft night events according to Yahoo Sports Adrian Wojnarowski.



The impact at the top of the draft is obvious, foot problems have been the bane of many big men in the NBA and with so little time left before the draft on June 26, teams picking early will likely have a big decision to make with less than perfect information about Embiid’s health. Add this situation to the back injury Embiid suffered near the end of his college season and the Cavaliers, Bucks and 76ers may find their draft boards just a little less clear than they were yesterday.
