Joel Embiid shares before-and-after surgery photos

Projected No. 1 pick in NBA Draft was suffering from stress fracture in right foot.

Joel Embiid seemed to be in good spirits for his foot surgery on Friday.

The Kansas center, who was expected to be the No. 1 pick by the Cavaliers in next week's NBA draft, shared a couple of pictures on Instagram before going under the knife to get the stress fracture in his right foot repaired.

The first photo Embiid posted had the caption, "It's time...... #GOD."

The second Instagram had the caption, "Can't even get up for someone who KILLED A LION........ I wasn't even asleep while they were doing the surgery #alien #WAFA #NBA #Supernatural"

Clearly the anesthesia was still taking its toll.
