After Monday's game, Embiid took to Instagram to vent his frustrations, writing, "F--ing sick and exhausted of being babied". I have a feeling that his role may stay limited until Joel Embiid returns. "I just want the green light to play". "When he's not able to do that, he gets frustrated".

The Sixers had won 17 consecutive games before losing to Miami in Game 2 at home.
