Joel Embiid still has a cast on his foot following surgery but found his way onto a basketball court Friday during a camp for kids in Maine.

According to the Sun Journal, Embiid took part in the “Play for Peace” basketball clinic at the Seeds of Peace camp in Otisfield, Maine, where sports agent Arn Tellem gathers NBA players to run basketball drills with campers, who are teenagers from conflict zones across the world, including Afghans, Israelis, Palestinians and Pakistanis.

The story says Embiid “ditched his crutches to break out some dance moves and take part in some of the least strenuous drills.”
