Joel Embiid was forced to leave the game against the Toronto Raptors on Wednesday due to a hand injury.

The superstar of the Philadelphia 76ers got injured in the first half, exited the game and did not return. X-rays on his right hand were negative.

Embiid would play limited minutes, as he had just recovered from an ankle injury.
