Joel Embiid is "very likely" to undergo knee surgery on his torn meniscus.
Embiid has been meeting with doctors to determine his next steps.
Embiid was the overwhelming favorite to win Rookie of the Year before he was ruled out for the season. Embiid suffered a partially torn meniscus and bone bruise in his left knee Jan. 20 against Portland.
A recovery timetable won't be established, sources said, until after the procedure.
The Sixers initially hoped that surgery would not be necessary on the knee, but a recent scan revealed "a more pronounced tear," according to one source close to the situation.
