The chips have fallen in the Eastern Conference and the Philadelphia 76ers are the No. 4 seed. They will take on the Toronto Raptors in the first round in the 2022 NBA playoffs.

The Sixers dropped three of the four matchups with the Raptors, and this promises to be a tough opponent for Philadelphia considering Matisse Thybulle will be unavailable for road games due to not being vaccinated.

“It’s too early to talk about it, honestly,” said coach Doc Rivers when asked about matching up with Toronto. “Offensive rebounds would be the first thing that jumps in my mind.”

The series schedule has not been released, but the start time and date for Game 1 will be on April 16 at 6 p.m. EDT.

The Sixers will have five days of practice to prepare for the matchup.
