Joel Embiid, Michael Jordan come together for picture at NBA All-Star Weekend

Philadelphia 76ers rookie center Joel Embiid is on hand for the NBA All-Star Weekend in New Orleans, and it looks like he’s making the most of his time at the festivities.

Late Saturday night, the 22-year-old shared a picture on Twitter of himself, « The Process, » with Michael Jordan, « The GOAT. »
Embiid, who has missed the past 11 games with a « very minor meniscal tear » in his left knee, did not participate in Friday’s Rising Stars Challenge or Saturday’s Skills Challenge. But it appears he will be making a return to the court sooner rather than later.

Speaking to the Philadelphia Inquirer, Embiid said he hopes to return to the lineup for the Sixers’ first game after the All-Star break.

« If the practices before that go well, and I don’t get any knee swelling or soreness, definitely, » he said.

The rookie center is averaging 20.2 points in just 25 minutes per game this season.
