Video: David Chao, MD, Talks Knees In Sixers Vs. Hawks

Everyone who’s tuned into the Eastern Conference semifinals has focused on the knee of Philadelphia 76ers All-Star center Joel Embiid, but the Sixers’ opponents have a knee issue of their own.

Second-year guard/forward DeAndre Hunter needed surgery on his knee, unlike Embiid, and is out for the remainder of the playoffs.

The series, by the way, is tied at 1-all, as it shifts to Atlanta. Check out what Dr. David Chao has to say about all this knee damage in the video below.
