Joel Embiid's injury could prove costly

Joel Embiid, who missed the 2014 NCAA Tournament because of a stress fracture in his back, today will undergo surgery to repair a stress fracture in the navicular bone of his right foot. News of the foot fracture shook the NBA on Thursday, just seven days before the 2014 Draft in Brooklyn, New York — a draft in which the 7-foot former Kansas University center was expected to be selected No. 1 overall.
