Joel Embiid is unlikely to participate in Summer League with the Philadelphia 76ers.

But Embiid continues to make oncourt progress returning from multiple foot surgeries.

The 76ers want to make sure Embiid doesn't suffer a setback before the start of the regular season.

Asked Tuesday at the lottery if Embiid's situation is a cloud hanging over the organization, Bryan Colangelo replied, "I'd like to think of it as just an uncertainty, not necessarily a cloud. It's one more thing we're going through as far as progress and development.

"I would tell you that things are moving along, apparently in a very good fashion right now. And we're hopeful that he's part of things. Obviously, we're just going to have to wait and see how that plays out."
