Joel Embiid said he was sick during the 76ers' second-round Game 4 playoff loss to the Raptors on Sunday. 

NBC Sports Philadelphia's Serena Winters reported that Embiid said he was throwing up Saturday night and needed an IV at 6 a.m. ET Sunday. Embiid said the issue was not related to the stomach virus that he dealt with during Game 2. He said this time, it's bothering him throughout his body.

The 25-year-old Embiid was coming off a dominating Game 3116-95 victory performance, where he recorded 33 points. 

In Sunday's loss, Embiid finished with 11 points and seven assists. 

The series is now tied at two apiece, with Game 5 set for Tuesday.
