Default Is Joel Embiid still worth drafting high?

The 76ers reportedly are still considering Joel Embiid for the third pick in Thursday's NBA draft, despite the stress fracture to his right foot.

But is that a wise pick?

When healthy, the former Kansas center has drawn comparisons to Hall of Famer Hakeem Olajuwon. But Embiid has also been compared to Yao Ming, another 7-footer whose career was cut short by the same injury.

Embiid, who was widely regarded as the front-runner for the No. 1 overall pick, had surgery on Friday and is expected to miss up to six months.
