As they prepare for the 2014 NBA Draft next week, the Orlando Magic are attempting to obtain as much data as possible about Joel Embiid’s right foot injury so they can make an informed decision if Embiid is available when the team picks fourth overall.

The Magic currently don’t know any specifics about Embiid’s injury other than what already has been reported through the news media: that Embiid suffered a stress fracture to the foot’s navicular bone and was scheduled to undergo surgery today.

“We’re going to try to gather as much information as we can, and we’re going to continue to do so right up until the draft,” Magic general manager Rob Hennigan told the Orlando Sentinel when asked about Embiid. “We have some information now, and we’re always looking to acquire more information that can help us make a decision.”

Embiid’s agent, Arn Tellem, will decide which teams will receive detailed information about Embiid’s injury and subsequent surgery.

In that sense, Tellem is expected to exert significant influence on where Embiid lands in the draft.

Hennigan would not say whether the Magic would consider drafting Embiid fourth overall if the team doesn’t receive detailed information on the injury.

But it seems highly unlikely that Orlando would draft a player — even a player as talented and as highly regarded as Embiid — without knowing the full details about the player’s health.

In addition to the fourth pick, the Magic hold the 12th overall pick and have a few players on their roster who could draw interest from other teams. One player who could draw interest is shooting guard Arron Afflalo.
