Joel Embiid will not play Thursday night against the Toronto Raptors Thursday at the Wells Fargo Center.
The 76ers center will miss his third consecutive game with back tightness. He was listed as questionable after being a partial participant in Thursday morning's shootaround. Then he was listed as probable an hour, 45 minutes before the game.
At the time, coach Brett Brown said the final decision would be made after Embiid participated in his pregame warmups. He looked fine in the light workout and even danced a little on the court. However, Embiid was ruled out 30 minutes before the game.
