Now it's the 76ers' turn to adjust to the Heat

Ben Simmons 76ers

Philadelphia 76ers center Joel Embiid said he was "sick and exhausted of being babied" after sitting out a playoff loss to the Miami Heat.

He has not played since suffering an orbital fracture and concussion in a collision with teammate Markelle Fultz against the New York Knicks on March 28.

Miami evened the series at 1-1 on Monday, which snapped Philadelphia's 17-game winning streak dating back to the regular season.

"Fucking sick and exhausted of being babied", read a post on Embiid's IG story shortly after the Heat picked up a 113-103 victory to tie up the series at 1-1.

Game 3 will be played in Miami on Thursday at 7 p.m. ET. "He wants to play in front of the fans, and he wants to see this through", Brown said, via

"When he is not able to do that he gets frustrated".

Embiid, who is with the team in Miami and has been sporting a protective facial mask in warmups, won't be satisfied with the doctor's orders.

It makes sense for the team to hold him out in hopes of not re-injuring himself, but it's the playoffs.

Embiid was on the floor with the 76ers for their morning shootaround practice, but coach Brett Brown says there's no change in the All-Star center's status.

"I love competing against guys like that, who you know want to hit each other and knock each other down, which is good". He's their best player and is considered a Defensive Player of The Year candidate this season, but Game 1 proved that the 76ers can handle their business without him. I wish more than anything that I was out there. "Whenever I'm out on the court, I'm just going to play as hard as I can".

OAKLAND, Calif. (AP) — Kevin Durant sparked a decisive third-quarter run on the way to 32 points, Klay Thompson added 31 points and five assists in another superb playoff performance and the Warriors rallied in the second half to beat the Spurs for a 2-0 lead in their first-round series.

Embiid has officially been listed as "doubtful" on the injury report.

"This is more like it to be going back home 1-1", Wade said. When looking at his playoff experience throughout his career, the Sixers knew Wade was capable of taking off at any given time, but seeing the veteran lead the way for the Heat by dropping 28 points in Game 2 shows they need to take a better approach for Thursday's Game 3.
