Joel Embiid is making the Philadelphia Flyers proud tonight — this is a hockey player move.
Embiid suffered a nasty dislocation of the ring finger on his left hand during the Sixers’ game against the Thunder Monday night. Below is the video, but if you are at all squeamish do not watch it. Seriously. We’re not kidding.

Respect to Embiid for that.
Embiid started the game 3-of-8 shooting in a physical matchup with Steven Adams.
