Well it is about damn time! Sixers coach Brett Brown announced yesterday that the 2014 1st round draft pick is on pace to play this preseason. I have to admit this might be more exciting then the Sixers taking Simmons with the #1 pick!

JoJo has missed the past two seasons while recovering from surgeries to return from a fracture in the navicular bone in his right foot. If Embiid does suit up for Philadelphia prior to the regular season, it will be his first competitive game since March 1, 2014 while at Kansas University.

If all goes as planned the Sixers might actually win more then 10 games! If this is the case then I would definitely head over to bookmaker, and begin looking at this team to maybe be an above .500 squad (maybe I am pushing it??).

Either way there is something to finally be excited about!
