Joel Embiid’s Blunt Assessment on Tyrese Maxey’s Two Games Back

Tyrese Maxey returned to the Philadelphia 76ers lineup last Friday after missing 18 games with a broken foot.

Before his injury, Maxey was averaging 23 points and four assists while shooting 42 percent from deep to a career-high seven tries per game in 15 matchups.

Many believed Maxey would be committed to becoming an All-Star based on what he displayed in the first leg of the season, but the foot injury ended those chances.
