Tottenham transfer target Thuram, 23, looked to be visibly in pain as he fell to his knees on the training ground in the Hungarian capital Budapest.
While Atletico Madrid star Lemar, 25, was clearly distraught as he put his head in his hands while being helped off the field by two others.
Didier Deschamps now faces an anxious wait over their fitness after setting up a last-16 clash against Switzerland on Monday.
Barcelona star Ousmane Dembele has already had to withdraw from France’s squad through injury.
And Deschamps could soon see two more wide-men return home should medical scans confirm problems.
The World Cup winner also faces a fresh dilemma in defence.
Lucas Hernandez was withdrawn at half-time during the draw with Portugal.
But his replacement, Everton’s Lucas Digne, pulled up injured after just seven minutes on the pitch.

It meant Adrien Rabiot had to fill in as a makeshift left-back for most of the second half.
And Deschamps will be hoping Hernandez is fit and ready to go when France take on Switzerland next week.
The Euro favourites only one won of their group games, which was their first match against Germany.
France were then held to a shock draw by Hungary before seeing out last night’s stalemate with Portugal.
