The five-year, $146.5 million contract of Joel Embiid with the Philadelphia 76ers is essentially guaranteed unless he suffers a catastrophic injury.

Across each of the final four seasons of the extension, ending with the 2022-23 season, the 76ers could waive Embiid for a financial benefit if he's lost because of a contractually agreed upon injury that causes him to miss 25 or more regular-season games and if he plays less than 1,650 minutes.

The only injuries that are included are Embiid's feet and back.
