Joel Embiid's recovery process is expected to cover 4-to-6 months, sources tell Yahoo Sports.
His agent says this will not affect his NBA career..go figure! Embiid is going to be a bust as he has dealt with major injuries in the past calendar year . He will still get taken in the NBA draft because he is tall. Nerlens Noel got drafted sixth last year and he tore his ACL a few months before the draft. NBA General Managers never learn from previous mistakes.ANALYST: Mark Kaplan
Diamondbacks are having internal discussions about whether to pursue Jarrod Saltalamacchia.
Salty has been god awful so far this season, and the Marlins feel comfortable going forward with J.T. Realmuto as their starting catcher. They decided to designate him for assignment, giving the Diamondbacks a chance to go after the veteran catcher. Going to Arizona wouldn't do much for his fantasy value besides for having him remain in the big leagues, so unless he somehow turns it around and gets a deal worked out with the D-Backs, punt on Saltalamacchia.
