Matisse Thybulle

This week the Sixers scored 144 points to win against the Hornets over the weekend. Sixers’ scored a season-high of 144 points. They then made a win over Indiana with a recordset Franchise of three points in a game with 23. Now, things were starting to look up a bit.

Recently Noah Levick took Twitter to announce Matisse Thybulle’s injury; he said, “Matisse Thybulle is listed on the NBA injury report as “ineligible to play” tomorrow in Toronto.”

The New vaccine mandate was implemented in January. Fifteen in Canada require individuals to be fully vaccinated before entering the country (The definition of fully vaccinated here means that an individual must have at least 14 days passed from the second dose of vaccination of a two-dose vaccination or a single-dose vaccine).
There are some connections between the vaccine mandate and designation, as Matisse Thybulle points out.

Fans might note that the last game Thybulle played for the sixers’ was held in Toronto back on December 28, 2021. He played that game a few days before the vaccine mandate was implemented.

Matisse Thybulle is one of the NBA’s best perimeter defenders. Losing Thybulle for Thursday’s game is a tough blow for the Sixers. The Sixers’ have only three games left in the regular season, and they are currently tied in standings with Boston and Milwaukee.

The three teams are looking destined to finish second, third and fourth in the Eastern Conference Playoff picture in some order. It will be nice if the best perimeter defender in the team is available.

The predictions are that the Sixers might play Toronto in a 4-versus-5 or 3-versus-6 Series ( 4-versus-5 being more likely only on how well the Raptors have been playing and how poorly Chicago has been).

The NBA players and Teams are facing reality harshly. There is a debate about whether Canada’s restrictions are appropriate, especially when the Coronavirus numbers are relatively low. If that policy changes, Matisse Thybulle will be classified as being responsible for being unable to play and, as a result, would reportedly face a $31,000 fine.

The 25-year-old expressed frustration with the protocols, “Very frustrating, especially as the rule changes come and go on a whim, it feels like; it gets confusing,” he said. “And for a recently recovered player to get tested so soon, the concern would be false positives. To draw positives and inconclusive and have to sit out for almost a week is a little frustrating.”
