Sixers' Joel Embiid calls minutes restriction (bleeping) BS

"F-king bullshit", was how Embiid described his minutes restriction, according to The Philly Voice.

"Ah, [shoot]", Embiid said. They've been extremely cautious with Embiid since he's been drafted and the goal is to build him into a guy that can continually go out and play 30+ minutes per game and 65+ games a year. I think I'm ready, I think I'm ready for more than whatever number they have.

Earlier in the summer, Sixers GM Bryan Colangelo said the team didn't anticipate a minutes restriction for Embiid this season. Brown and the newly installed medical team headlined by Dr. Daniel Medina likely have yet to see enough on-court work to justify allowing him to play more.

"I don't really know if there's a solid number", said Brown during a recent media scrum.

Embiid has played less than 15 minutes in two preseason games but has looked immaculate.

"They are going to hear me". Hopes are high for a Sixers team loaded with talent that hopes two of its biggest players - Embiid and Ben Simmons - will stay in the lineup and make a big impact this year. "I feel great and hopefully that changes based on [Monday's] practice and [Tuesday's] practice".

"I wish I was playing more minutes", Embiid said, a day before tip off at the Sixers' opening game in Washington, on ESPN Wednesday night. "We're going to discuss it, but at the same time I trust them, I trust the doctors, and even if I feel good, they have a plan behind it". But by the end of November, Embiid was already up to playing around 28 minutes per game, with some additional leeway if the Sixers were engaged in a tight game during the final minutes. Over just 31 games, he averaged 25.4 minutes a game.

The coaching staff is faced with the tricky task of managing Embiid's allotted minutes over a 48-minute span. Brett Brown is considering using up his playing time in the first half instead of spacing it out to have him available in the fourth quarter.
