Joel Embiid underwent a second foot surgery on Tuesday, one that's expected to keep him out of action for a second consecutive NBA season.

Embiid was said to be struggling with the decision, which was at least partially responsible for the delay in getting the procedure done. But immediately afterward he seemed to be in good spirits.
