Have no fear, Joel Embiid will be back.
Thanks to CSN Philly's Jessica Camerato (@JCameratoCSN), we got a glimpse of Embiid throwing down a sweet dunk after draining a three.
All indications showing that the rookie center is inching closer and closer to returning to the floor for the surging young team.
The big guy can still get up:

Embiid has missed the last two games due to a sore left knee and is questionable for tonight's game against the Rockets at 8 p.m. He will be evaluated at game time.

His shooting seems to be in fine shape draining 8 of 9 from beyond the arc. Could we see this man in a three point contest someday? At least that would get him close to an All Star game.

Jahlil Okafor is available to play tonight after being out with right knee soreness.
