Thybulle (foot) has entered Thursday's Game 6 against Miami, Ira Winderman of the South Florida Sun Sentinel reports. An odd situation to say the least, Thybulle has finally been deemed active. Thybulle entered the game for the injured Danny Green, who appeared to hurt his left leg after Joel Embed fell onto it early in the first quarter.
Thybulle is questionable for Thursday's Game 6 against the Heat due to left foot soreness. Thybulle has had a limited offensive impact early in the second-round series against Miami, averaging 2.8 points in 16.4 minutes per game. If he's unavailable for Game 6, Furkan Korkmaz should see an uptick in playing time.
Thybulle closed with two rebounds, one block and one steal across 21 minutes during Wednesday's 119-103 loss to the Heat. Wednesday marked the most minutes Thybulle has logged in a postseason game without scoring. Additionally, it marked his first game all season without him attempting a shot. Thybulle finished with a minus-six in the box score and is struggling to offset his offensive ineptitude.
Barring a change in his vaccination status, Thybulle will not be eligible to play in Thursday's Game 6 at Toronto. As was the case for a game near the end of the regular season and Games 3 and 4 of the current series, Thybulle cannot play in Toronto due to his status as a non-vaccinated player. There's been no indication that Thybulle plans to become fully vaccinated, so while the Sixers may not issue an official injury report until Wednesday, the expectation is that the defensive ace will not be available. Thybulle struggled through an overall sluggish Game 5 effort by the Sixers, finishing with just two points on 1-of-6 shooting (0-3 3Pt) to go with two rebounds and one steal in 14 minutes off the bench.
Thybulle is officially listed as ineligible to play in Saturday's Game 4 in Toronto. As expected, Thybulle will once again be sidelined in Toronto due to the fact that he's not fully vaccinated. In his absence, Danny Green and Georges Niang are expected to pick up additional minutes.
