"It is a terrifying phrase when you're talking about a big man" - Chris Mannix

Joel Embiid's Draft status has been a hot topic throughout the day on Thursday after his foot injury was revealed to the public.

Chris Mannix joined Arbella Early Edition to discuss the injury.

"When you hear the term navicular fracture," explained Mannix. "You're talking about the same injury that affected Yao Ming, the same injury that ended Bill Walton's career, the same injury Zydrunas Ilgauskas dealt with early in his career.

"It is a terrifying phrase when you're talking about a big man, especially when you're talking about one you're going to use the capital of a top 5 or a top 6 pick."
