NCAA Basketball: Kansas at Baylor

Joel Embiid is going to be sidelined for four to six months following foot surgery on Friday morning, according to Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo! Sports. The surgery comes one day after news spread that the former Kansas center broke the navicular bone in his right foot. Embiid’s agent Arn Tellem spread details of the surgery to reporters on Friday afternoon.

The surgery comes just six days before the 2014 NBA Draft, and makes Embiid’s status uncertain. Embiid was largely presumed to be the favorite for the No. 1 pick by the Cavaliers before the injury, but the consensus is that he’s going to slip. There have been reports that the Boston Celtics would like to end a potential slide down the draft at No. 6, if he gets that far.
