The 76ers announced this morning that Joel Embiid underwent a left knee procedure and that the star big man will be reevaluated in approximately four weeks 😢.
Embiid’s MVP odds were already off the board, but how did this recent injury news impact Philly’s NBA title odds? We brought in NBA trader Evan Gould to explain.
ASK THE TRADER: Embiid will be out for a good chunk of time, but NBA title odds were relatively unaffected by his official injury news. That’s because he’s not expected to be sidelined long enough to where he’d miss playoff games. We drifted Philly’s odds slightly with the chance Embiid’s injury lingers into the postseason, but we didn’t think it warranted significant movement.
