Joel Embiid Says His Minutes Restriction is 'F---ing Bull----'

Joel Embiid Says His Minutes Restriction is 'F---ing Bull----'

76ers coach Brett Brown said on Monday that the team doesn't have an exact number for Embiid's minutes, saying it will likely be in the "teens" though it could depend on game flow, too.

"Ever since a year ago, my very first words to Embiid was, 'Man, I'm glad to see you back on the court.' " said Whiteside, with Embiid's National Basketball Association debut delayed by a foot issue, one Whiteside playfully cited amid their Friday late-night Twitter exchange. Embiid also expressed his trust in the doctors after Tuesday's practice.

Sporting a new hairdo and on the heels of signing his shiny new contract, Embiid was not pulling any punches. "But I think that's bulls-t".

"It's amusing to me", Whiteside said after practice at AmericanAirlines Arena.

Embiid said the staff made a decision Tuesday. I think I'm ready, I think I'm ready for more than whatever number they have.

FCC Chairman Says He Supports Free Speech But Does Not Condemn Trump
Pai has served as a commissioner on the FCC since 2012, before Trump elevated him to chairman this year. The television network also broadcasts through more than 200 stations owned by independent businesses.

The point of all this is that Embiid wants to play, really badly, but also needs to be a little patient here. He played 15 in two preseason games this season. The 7-foot star did suffer a left ankle sprain in the game against the Heat on Friday, but he has been a full participant in practice and is listed as probable for the opener at Washington. "Definitely going to have my opinion on that, and they're going to hear me".

Joel Embiid said that he believes he'll play approximately 16 minutes vs. the Wizards on Wednesday night.

Embiid didn't play a single game in the first two seasons of his National Basketball Association career due to various injuries, and even while putting up incredible numbers during the 31 games he played last season, he was limited to 25 minutes per game.

In the end, Embiid returned to a familiar phrase to sum up everything.
