Furkan Korkmaz underwent surgery on Tuesday. Per the Philadelphia 76ersannouncement, the 21-year-old Turk guard will be reevaluated in approximately four weeks after the successful arthroscopic surgery. He suffered a meniscal tear in his right knee on February 12th.

The Sixers also confirmed that Boban Marjanovic picked up a right knee injury. He underwent a MRI and CT scan that revealed a bone bruise and mild sprain. The 30-year-old Serb center will be reevaluated in approximately five to seven days.

Joel Embiid (left knee) is set to be reevaluated sooner, but for the moment adds on his team’s injury woes. Zhaire Smith (left foot) and Shake Milton (finger) are also out, but the former is expected to make his pro-debut in the G League this week.
