NBA Draft prospect Joel Embiid has undergone successful surgery to help heal a stress fracture in his right foot.
Prior to the injury, Embiid was widely touted as the top Draft pick this year, with the Cleveland Cavaliers expected to choose the Kansas Jayhawks man first up on June 26.
"Two screws were inserted into the navicular bone in Joel Embiid's right foot," hiss doctor said of the operation.
"Joel tolerated the surgery without difficulty and will begin his rehabilitation in the near future."
No measurements have been given as to how long Embiid will be out of the game, although he will not be present when the Draft is drawn next week.
