Joel Embiid profanely expressed his frustration with the 76ers' minutes restriction

Joel Embiid will likely play fewer than 20 minutes in the season opener, according to Philadelphia 76ers head coach Brett Brown, and Embiid thinks that it is "fucking bullshit".

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. "If you look at it, if I started the third quarter, I have to literally wait like 16 minutes before I go back in and finish the game". I think I'm ready for more than whatever number they have.

EMBIID: I always think I have a voice, so I'm sure they're listening to what I have to say too, but they're making a decision based on what they think. The minutes thing we're going to learn more about that, there will be some minutes restriction, but it's also a judgment of how is the game being played, not just looking at a rigid number.

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

And more from Embiid after he was informed about Brown's comments.

Embiid last played in a regular-season game on January 27 before missing Philadelphia's final 37 contests because of a left knee injury. I think I'm ready for more than whatever number they have. Over just 31 games, he averaged 25.4 minutes a game. If I feel great and my body feels great and my knee is fine, I should play 30 minutes or more. If the Sixers are being blown out, or are up big, let Embiid rest and bank up the minutes. 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.

Embiid, 23 and one of the league's most intriguing talents - and also one of its most injury-prone players - has had his career stunted by a series of foot and back issues. Now, barely 24 hours after the team announced No. 1 overall pick Markelle Fultz would begin the season coming off the bench, Embiid is frustrated with his minutes restriction.
