Joel Embiid is headed for surgery.

The Sixers announced Sunday night that superstar center and reigning NBA MVP Joel Embiid will undergo a "corrective procedure" to repair the lateral meniscus in his left knee.

Embiid has dealt with knee issues off and on for a few weeks, but aggravated it on Tuesday night when he dove for a loose ball and then was landed on by Golden State Warriors forward Jonathan Kuminga.

According to the Sixers, an update on Embiid's timeline for a return will be provided following the procedure.

According to ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski, it is expected that Embiid will miss "extended time."
