SALT LAKE CITY - The 76ers have yet to decide on Joel Embiid's playing status and are still acquiring information regarding the healing of his right foot.

"No change as of yet," Sixers general manager Sam Hinkie said Thursday. "A number of meetings are happening about that, even one today. But we have meetings almost every day about that. We don't have anything ready to announce."

The team announced last month that Embiid had a setback in his recuperation. The 2014 first-round draft pick from Kansas missed what would have been his rookie season after undergoing surgery last June to repair a stress fracture in the navicular bone of his right foot.

It is unknown if Embiid, 21, will have to undergo another surgery, which could sideline him for part of next season. Nothing has been ruled out.

A source said he doesn't believe Embiid will be available to play at the start of the NBA season. There's also a legitimate chance that the 7-foot center could miss the entire season.

The Cameroonian player did not participate in the Utah Jazz Summer League and will not compete in the NBA Summer League, which begins Friday in Las Vegas. However, there's a chance that he will join the team in Las Vegas.

"These are decisions you want to spend enough time on to make sure: A, you get it right, and B, you really talked through things and everything is on the same page," Hinkie said.

"We are not one to rush what's important. And the health of our players, name something more important. It's hard to find something more important."
