Joel Embiid was happy with how his first training camp in the NBA went.
"I didn't practice yesterday," he said Friday as the team wrapped its four-day camp at Stockton University. "They had me take the day off, but other than that it went great. I went through the whole practice today, two days ago and the first day."
Embiid hasn't played since March 1st, 2014.
Embiid missed the last two seasons due to surgery in each of the last two summers to repair the navicular bone in his right foot.
"Today was a good day, especially going against [Jahlil Okafor]," he said of his first time squaring-up against the 6-11, 265-pounder. "It went really great. It makes me elevate my game."
Embiid will make his preseason debut on Tuesday.
