VIDEO: Joel Embiid shows off range in pregame workout

Bill Streicher-USA TODAY Sports

For long-suffering Philadelphia 76ers fans, Joel Embiid is the fleeting light at the end of the tunnel.

The prodigal third overall pick from 2014 is a tantalizing talent, a nimble 7-footer with range that extends out to the 3-point line and size to dominate down low.

But the Embiid investment has yet to yield dividends on account of a perpetually broken foot. He's yet to play a single game for the team, and isn't expected to take the court until the 2016-17 season.

At the very least, it appears Embiid is in shape (something that was in question months ago), and making progress in his recovery. The video above shows Embiid shooting around prior to the Sixers' loss to the Miami Heat on Friday.
