Philadelphia 76ers' star player Joel Embiid is facing an extended period on the sidelines. According to ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski, the current NBA MVP will undergo surgery to mend a left meniscus injury.

The surgery aims to address a displaced flap of the meniscus, as noted by Shams Charania from The Athletics. Consequently, Embiid will be out of action for an extended duration.

There remains a possibility of Embiid making a comeback later in the season, as reported by Wojnarowski. However, the exact timeline for his recovery will only be determined after the surgical procedure.

Typically, recovery from surgery for a meniscus tear can range from three to six months. Unfortunately, due to the NBA's rule of requiring players to participate in at least 65 games to qualify for the MVP award, Embiid will miss out on the chance to defend his title this season.

Prior to the injury, Embiid was leading the league in scoring, averaging an impressive 35.3 points, along with 11.3 rebounds, and 5.7 assists per game.
