Joel Embiid unhappy about minutes restriction, calls it bulls

Embiid was on a restriction last season, in the mid 20s, and averaged an wonderful 20.2 points, 7.8 rebounds and 2.5 blocks in just over 25 minutes per game.

Philadelphia 76ers big man Joel Embiid told reporters on Monday that he was frustrated with the team's decision to put him on a minutes restriction to start the season, and it appears he did not cool off at all after sleeping on it.

Embiid, who has been a model citizen and lovable personality for Philadelphia, said he has a voice to object to his limited usage, but he still trusts the team. I think the number is going to be 16 [minutes] or something like that. I think I'm ready for more than whatever number they have.

One person who's certainly not a fan of the restriction is Embiid himself.

"I'm very disappointed", Embiid told reporters.

He said he was excited about the season, before saying, "I hope they don't have me on a minutes restriction".

"I wish I was playing more minutes", the 23-year-old said. "I didn't know about that".

And more from Embiid after he was informed about Brown's comments. But at the same time, that's me only playing four minutes a quarter, and just sitting there getting cold, and my body not being ready to go if I have to wait 8-10 minutes and then got to go finish the game, too. "But that's disappointing. I feel great, and hopefully that changes based on this practice and tomorrow's practice". In his preseason debut last Wednesday against the Nets, Embiid erupted for 22 points - including 18 free throw attempts - in just 15 minutes of action. "We are going to discuss it". Head coach Brett Brown was vague in describing just how much the 7-foot-2 center would play, only conceding that the amount would be "somewhere in the teens". But by the end of November, Embiid was already up to playing around 28 minutes per game, with some additional leeway if the Sixers were engaged in a tight game during the final minutes. It turns out that this season, he'll still be handled carefully - despite his desire to play more.
