An injury has kept Joel Embiid from taking shots on the court of late, but off it, he's still letting them fly.

Once again, the Philadelphia 76ers star is doing what he can to get a certain celebrity's attention.

Embiid has been attempting to woo Rihanna ever since the summer of 2014, not long after he was drafted into the NBA. Although he has yet to get a date with the "Work" singer, he has not given up hope (here and here).

His latest move comes via a TMZ video in which he tells Rihanna he loves her and she should give him a shout.

The ball is again in her court.
