PHILADELPHIA (CBS) – Joel Embiid was not happy after the Heat beat the Sixers 113-103 on Monday in Game 2 of the NBA Playoffs.
“F***ING sick and tired of being babied,” Embiid posted on his Instagram story moments after the game.
The Sixers center cleared the NBA’s concussion protocol on Sunday after suffering a fractured orbital bone during an injury in March.
Embiid’s latest post could be a sign he’ll be on the court soon but there’s no indication when the Sixers will give the green light.
“He just wants to play basketball, he wants to be with his team, he wants to play in front of the fans. Ya know, he wants to see this through and when he’s not able to do that, he gets frustrated. I respect his frustration, it’s born out of competitiveness,” said coach Brett Brown.
The Sixers will travel to Miami for Game 3 on Thursday.
