“Visual inspection suggested good vascularity of the bone,” (Dr. Martin) O’Malley said of the three-hour surgery with no complications. “We replaced the two existing screws and performed a bone graft of the site using bone from his (Philadelphia Sixers Joel Embiid) hip.

Following Tuesday’s surgery, Dr. David T. Martin, Sixers director of performance research and development, debriefed with the medical staff, Matsubara and Embiid’s parents.

“All of us were collectively encouraged by the feedback we received,” Martin said. “Moving forward, our sports performance staff will work with Joel to guide his return to play and monitor his progress against targeted benchmarks. Our team will work with Joel to create the best possible environment for healing so he can achieve his goals.”
