Philadelphia Sixers center Joel Embiid underwent surgery on his right foot Tuesday, and according to the organization, the procedure was a success and the big fella should make a full recovery.

Embiid snapped a selfie after the surgery, and wrote that he’s keeping a positive attitude despite yet another setback in his currently-stalled NBA career.

The 21-year-old, who was the third overall pick in the 2014 Draft, is expected to miss the entire 2015-16 campaign.
