rapid rate in exchange for lottery picks and cap room.But,

PHILADELPHIA -- Brett Brown sticks a depth chart on a sizable TV before every game thats patterned more like a traffic light than a simple in/out list scrawled on most NBA team chalkboards.Red. Cant go.Yellow. Can play, with minute restrictions.Green. Healthy, let `em rip.Joel Embiid has been stuck at the red light for two years in Tankadelphia at the corner of The Process and Progress just waiting ... waiting ... waiting for the light to flip to yellow and for his career to shift into drive.Embiid remains the light at the end of Daisys dock for a Philadelphia 76ers franchise that has bottomed out like few others in North American professional sports history. Hes ready to go green.All 7-foot-2, 275 pounds and -- of most importance -- two sturdy feet of Embiid have taken giant steps forward in the preseason toward proving hes more real deal than man of mystery. Embiid, out of Kansas, has played all six preseason games and has surpassed modest expectations, so Brown has hinted hes willing to consider lifting some restrictions he had placed on the big man. Embiid could play more than 20 minutes a game. He could play both games in back-to-back nights. He could actually post-up more than he posts on social media.Its been three years and the fact that Im healthy now and ready to get back on the court, I just cant wait, Embiid said.Embiid hasnt played since the 76ers made him the No. 3 overall pick of the 2014 draft because of recurring injuries to his right foot. He hasnt missed much -- the 76ers went 10-72 last season and Brown is 47-199 entering his fourth season.Embiids return should have set the benchmark in optimism for an organization that had shed salary and NBA talent at a rapid rate in exchange for lottery picks and cap room.But, they are the 76ers for a reason, and no season is easy.The Sixers might have been better off adding Doug Ross and Gregory House to Browns staff more than John Bryant. The Sixers have been struck by tough injuries year after year since Joshua Harris bought the team in 2011.The Sixers finally won big -- in the draft lottery -- and took no-brainer Ben Simmons as the No. 1 overall pick. Simmons lived up to a doomed Sixers tradition when he suffered a broken bone in his right foot and could miss at least three months.Under Harris ownership, projected cornerstones Andrew Bynum, Nerlens Noel and Embiid have all missed full seasons with injuries.N
