Late Saturday night, the 22-year-old shared a picture on Twitter of himself, "The Process," with Michael Jordan, "The GOAT."
Embiid, who has missed the past 11 games with a "very minor meniscal tear" in his left knee, did not participate in Friday's Rising Stars Challenge or Saturday's Skills Challenge. But it appears he will be making a return to the court sooner rather than later.
Speaking to the Philadelphia Inquirer, Embiid said he hopes to return to the lineup for the Sixers' first game after the All-Star break.
"If the practices before that go well, and I don't get any knee swelling or soreness, definitely," he said.
The rookie center is averaging 20.2 points in just 25 minutes per game this season.
