SACRAMENTO, Calif. – Joel Embiid was not on hand for the 76ers' practice Wednesday at the Golden 1 Center.
The center participated in physical therapy and individual court-work drills at the Sixers practice facility in Camden. Embiid was being monitored by David Martin, the team's director of performance research and development. The two are scheduled to join the team here Wednesday evening.
Embiid is scheduled to play in Thursday's matchup against the Kings at Golden 1. He was held out of Tuesday's 104-97 victory over the Utah Jazz in Salt Lake City to rest his surgically left knee.
Furkan Korkmaz is also expected to join the team on Wednesday evening. The rookie swingman was called up from a stint with the Sixers G League team, the Delaware 87ers.
