Two NBA Big Men Joel Embiid and Joakim Noah getting shut down
It seems like this guy might just have the Greg Oden curse. Joel Embiid out indefinitely due to a knee injury and is scheduled to get an MRI. The team just put the news out there. He has some swelling in his left knee that just won’t go down. He has missed the last 16 of 17 games. Joel when healthy is a complete stud but he missed his first two full NBA seasons with a foot injury. Embiid has only competed in 31 NBA games. He was averaging 20 and 7. Him playing in the limited capacity this year the Sixers have 12 more wins than they did last year.
This is extra bad news with the news that Ben Simmons is out for the year with a foot injury.
The other Fun news is that Knicks Center Joakim Noah is most likely out for the year. This Knicks team will be one of the all time failed attempts in making a super team. Getting a bunch of guys together that are can’t play anymore. Noah will be getting Knee surgery soon. He never really even got a chance to play for the Knicks being hurt with various injuries all year. The Knicks signed him to a 4 year $72 million deal. They really could have just flushed that money right in the toilet.
I think that people forget that just a few years ago he was 4th in voting for the MVP. This year when he played he only averaged 5 and 9 with 22 minutes a game. He just might be the oldest 32 yr old in the game right now. Another fabulous move by the Knicks.
