SAM HINKIE graduated summa cum laude from the University of Oklahoma. He was the president of the student business association and chairman of the dean's roundtable. He's a numbers guy at heart, earning an MBA from Stanford University. But yesterday, when the 76ers general manager and president of basketball operations spoke with the media during a conference call, he sounded as if he had done quite a bit of medical studying. Perhaps one gets quite knowledgeable about a subject when it's happening for the second year in a row. Hinkie spoke about Joel Embiid's bone-graft procedure, completed by a team of five carefully selected doctors, which took place Tuesday in New York at the Hospital for Special Surgery.

He had that surgery Tuesday, so the mystery that had surrounded the process ought to be quelled for at least a little while. The Sixers themselves, of course, fed the questions and speculation and mystery by remaining so quiet about Embiid and his situation.

IN THE SHORT RUN, Eagles fans will be disappointed that they won't see their new No. 1 quarterback, Sam Bradford, in tomorrow's preseason opener against the Colts at Lincoln Financial Field. In the long run, the bigger news coming out of NovaCare yesterday probably was that tight end Zach Ertz has undergone a surgical procedure on a "core muscle," believed to be a partial groin tear, and has been ruled out of the entire preseason. With Bradford, it seems that Eagles coach Chip Kelly is just being cautious, wanting to get the QB with the twice-repaired left ACL another week of practice reps before sending him into live action.
