Philadelphia 76ers centre Joel Embiid will not return to the team’s game against the Toronto Raptors due to an apparent hand injury, according to Keith Pompey of The Philadelphia Inquirer.

Embiid was hit on the hand during the first half of Wednesday’s game. X-rays came back negative, but he was still ruled out.

The 76ers big man missed Tuesday’s loss to the Phoenix Suns with an ankle injury.
