Sixers Joel Embiid practiced Monday, probable for Wednesday's opener

Embiid was back at practice on Monday after sitting out on Sunday with a minor left ankle sprain, so he's ready to go for the season opener on Wednesday.

Embiid didn't play a single game in the first two seasons of his National Basketball Association career due to various injuries, and even while putting up incredible numbers during the 31 games he played last season, he was limited to 25 minutes per game. DFS owners may want to wait until his workload increases.

Embiid played 14 minutes, 45 seconds in Wednesday's preseason game against the Brooklyn Nets in Uniondale, N.Y. Then he followed with 14:33 in Friday's game versus the Miami Heat in Kansas City.

All things considered, it sounds like the Sixers are looking to strike a balance between letting their franchise center spread his wings and protecting him from overextending himself too soon. It's fair to say that Embiid has thrived under minute restrictions so far.

He has served three and a half years with Bismarck Police and is an American military veteran, according to Donlin. Charges have been filed against a man accused in the violent assault of a Bismarck police officer.

"So I felt like I could have played 30 minutes", he said.

Thirty or so minutes after Brown spoke, Embiid walked over to the media. "I'm still not there, but my body's getting in better shape and I feel great".

"Ah, [shoot]", Embiid said. "They got to listen to me. And after they won, he called me, 'barbeque chicken, ' so I was waiting to get back at him". "Definitely going to have my opinion on that, and they're going to hear me". "I felt good. So I think it's coming".

Despite what appears to be a disagreement over the restriction, Embiid's final words on Monday suggested he's prepared for anything.
