Their challenge won’t be an easy one tonight as the Jazz rank in the top three among teams in rebounds allowed, assists allowed, and three-point attempts allowed. The Sixers, meanwhile, rank in the bottom half of the league in all of those areas, which spells trouble for this matchup.
If they’re going to pull out a win, they’ll need an incredible effort from both rising star Tyrese Maxey and hopeful All-Star Tobias Harris. And hopefully, Georges Niang‘s return to Utah can add an extra boost to this game.
- Joel Embiid – Out (COVID Protocols)
- Matisse Thybulle – Out (COVID Protocols)
- Danny Green – Out (Hamstring)
- Aaron Henry – Day to Day (Illness)
- Grant Riller – Out (Knee)
- Ben Simmons – Out (Personal Reasons)
The Philadelphia 76ers continue to have a laundry list of an injury report. Both Joel Embiid and Matisse Thybulle continue to miss games due to the league’s COVID-19 Protocols, while Danny Green, who recently re-reaggravated his hamstring injury, will miss the game as well.
- Rudy Gay – Out (heel)
The Utah Jazz, meanwhile, are remarkably healthy, missing only Rudy Gay, who is recovering from heel surgery. Gay still has yet to make his debut for the Jazz, so the team the Sixers will face tonight is the same they’ve boasted all season.
When/Where to Watch
The Sixers will face off against the Jazz tonight at 10:00 PM EST. You will be able to catch the game on either TNT or NBC Sports Philadelphia or listen, as always, to the radio broadcast on 97.5 FM The Fanatic.
