Crunch Time: Amber Rose dating Kevin Durant?

Kevin Durant passed on the Wizards because he 'didn't want to play at home'

Embiid did not take part in Monday's shootaround after experiencing additional swelling in his left knee. He has been out since January 22 with a left knee contusion. The third overall pick in the 2014 NBA Draft, Embiid sat out the entire 2014 and 2015 seasons while recovering from a broken foot. That has made this year his rookie year, and he is the Rookie of the Year frontrunner despite playing on a minutes restriction to avoid injury.

Embiid is averaging 20.2 points, 7.8 rebounds and 2.5 blocks in 31 games this season.

Embiid, who suffered a knee injury in January and has a torn meniscus in his left knee, has played just one game since January 20th.

The Sixers acquired Andrew Bogut in the Noel deal, but he is expected to get bought out by the team, per ESPN.com's Marc Stein and Tim MacMahon.

Grading Magic Johnson's trade of Lou Williams to the Rockets
That'll run the Rockets a nice $7 million, which is looking like severe underpayment with the year Williams is putting together. The fact that the Rockets acquired him with the lackluster trade pieces that they did certainly seems to back that up.

The 76ers also said Monday that No. 1 overall pick Ben Simmons will likely resume training this week after a minor procedure on his surgically repaired right foot.

Simmons fractured his right foot September 30 during the final scrimmage of training camp.

Star Sixers center Joel Embiid is out indefinitely, the team announced today. With roughly six weeks left on the National Basketball Association calendar, it's certainly possible that we've seen the last of the league's most exciting first-year player this season.
