In 64 games for Philadelphia this season, Thaibul has averaged 5.8 points, 2.3 rebounds and 1.8 steals per game and is a key defender for the team.
The news comes after the 76ers, including the Boston Celtics, did not confirm their full roster vaccinations because the game was the first in Philadelphia to require all Canadian spectators to be vaccinated.
Although the status of the Thai ball vaccine is unclear, the rule will remain in place regardless of which team is visiting Toronto.
Philadelphia and Toronto also look like potential matchups for the fourth and fifth seed of the Eastern Conference in the first round of the NBA playoffs.
Raptors OG Anunoby and Yuta Watanabe have both been listed as “suspicious” and a game-time decision will be made before taking the fourth place to the 76ers.
