Embiid played through an injury that, for the time being,

the Sixers are calling a “right thumb sprain.”

Sixers head coach Doc Rivers told reporters in Toronto that the team knows

he can’t make things worse by playing, but that it’s “not a great injury.”

the Raptors weren’t reluctant to swat at the ball and do anything possible to increase Embiid’s discomfort.

While Embiid has proven he doesn’t mind plowing through contact and enduring long

physical games full of double teams, he voiced his displeasure

when he received no foul call on a layup early in the third quarter. Rivers was unhappy, too.
