Philadelphia 76ers star Joel Embiid played through a lot of pain in the 2022 NBA Playoffs, and he just underwent a pair of surgeries to fix two separate issues. The Sixers announced Tuesday that Embiid got surgery Monday to repair the right thumb injury he suffered against the Toronto Raptors while getting another procedure done on his left index finger.

Of course, Embiid also suffered a left facial fracture and concussion in the first-round series against the Raptors, which kept him out for the first two games against the Miami Heat. The Sixers lost both of those games Embiid missed and ultimately lost the second-round series in six games, with the MVP candidate not looking anything like his usual dominant self.

These finger surgeries aren't expected to have any impact on Embiid's availability for training camp in the fall.

It was a tough way for Embiid's season to end after he did all he could to make the Sixers a championship contender. He finished second in MVP voting behind Nikola Jokic once again, winning the scoring title while averaging 30.6 points, 11.7 rebounds, 4.2 assists, 1.5 blocks and 1.1 steals. Philly won 51 games and earned the No. 4 seed in the Eastern Conference.

Embiid was mostly dominant against the Raptors, but the injuries caught up to him against Miami. In four games against the Heat, he notched just 19.8 points, 9.8 rebounds and 1.8 assists per game while shooting 42.6% from the field.

Meanwhile, Embiid didn't get nearly enough help from James Harden, who took a lot of heat for his no-show in Game 6 against Miami. Harden will likely be back with the Sixers next season, and he and Embiid will look to improve their chemistry and finally get Philly further than the second round. Let's hope these injuries indeed heal up in time for camp.
