Philadelphia 76ers centre Joel Embiid has had knee surgery, ending his hopes of retaining the NBA’s Most Valuable Player award.

29 year old Embiid, will miss at least four weeks of action following surgery.

He is the reigning MVP but needs to play a minimum of 65 matches this season to retain that title, which is now impossible with this absence.

The Cameroonian will miss what would have been his seventh straight All-Star game on Sunday, February 18.
