Could Joel Embiid Fall to No.9?

47 posts in this topic

But the thing is, he limited his information to the top 3 teams I believe. This gives others no chance to really get a good picture of where the guy is health wise and he can't travel to teams before the draft to be evaluated by a team doctor. All the information that comes from his camp in the past and in the future is considered questionable at best.

That is why our own team Drs would need to evaluate him. I believe the Cavs discovered the fracture.

If they won't let us the we don't draft him.

Cleveland's doctors already examined him right? If they pass on him, we need to do the same.

Every single team's doctors are different; i.e., Star.

I mean just go see three different doctors yourself and you're going to get different answers.

He can't travel after the surgery and is limited to what can and can't be done due to the surgery. With the Cavs being the one that found the issue along with the limited physical work that he has been able to do regarding his back I'm more of a shoot first ask questions later bc it seems to be a pandora's box with guy. Of course they are going to say the surgery was successful but there is really no way to followup and be evaluated by independent doctors given the tight timeline leading up to the draft. Not.necessarly disagreeing that he won't be drafted but with all the issues and questions surrounding his health and the way things have unfolded I would have him off my draft board bc of history of how these things have played out. And personally I would feel that his team was trying to screw me.

Every doctor is different but if the diagnosis was won't then why is he going ahead with surgery?

Most athletes with this injury heal properly, it's players who wait a while to fix it or have high arches that get this injury repeatedly. Embiid got surgery with in a few days of it happening. Everything points to him healing fine and being able to play at a high level.

Most, but the more strenuous the sport like basketball and the bigger the person the more likely to be recurring.

If it was no big deal he would still be #1 pick

As long as he doesn't have high arches, he'll be able to play at a high level for the next 9-10 seasons easily.

But, when theres a healthy Parker, Wiggins, or even Exum it becomes a big deal.

I like our chances. We could end up with Embiid (probably won't get pass LA) or Randle due to injuries.

    • I know that Barner, Gaffney, and probably Artis-Payne haven't worked out, but I have a special feeling this time.
    • I like the presentation, but not a fan of any of this except for Ross in the 2nd, but that will not happen at 40.  No way Tabor goes at 8. The UF corners are pretty pedestrian this year and if we're going CB at 8 (God I hope not) it should be Lattimore or White. Ross won't be there at 40. Westbrook after taking a speedster to enhance our WR unit after we gave up Ealy for that selection?  Williams is decent and think he will be a solid RB, so no issue with this pick. Gerald Everett is a faster version of Funchess and more akin to Washington's Reed, so not really what our offense needs. We need more of a balanced TE like Howard or Shaheen. I don't mind a DB in R5, but after using our 8th pick on him, definitely don't want to double down with Bradberry, Tabor, Worley, and Captain on board. By R6, can't hate the depth DT selection especially with one of Star or KK not here after 2017. Butler should be a starter by '18, but more depth in the trenches is good. Can't say I've heard of Humphries, so nicely done on putting a FCS guy on the radar. Nothing wrong with a camp body to push for the QB3 duties down the line, and maybe up to QB2.
