Kansas Freshman Center Joel Embiid has suffered a stress fracture in his right foot according to ESPN. Embiid is one of the top prospects in the 2014 NBA draft and before the injury was a sure fire top 3 pick. Now, with this injury his draft stock is set to fall. The surgery date for the fracture is set for this Friday.
Reports have stated that Embiid will no longer do any more workouts for teams, and won’t even be in Brooklyn for the 2014 NBA draft.
Embiid’s injury could have a massive domino effect on the entire draft. It has been a sure thing to everyone in the media that he was going to be Cleveland’s choice with the #1 overall pick. Now with this injury is most definitely expected to slide from that spot. The quest now is how far does he fall.
