Rush has missed the previous six games with a sprained toe. If he can play, it is unclear if the team will opt to ease him back into action. Shabazz Muhammad is also questionble, so Rush could be needed for some extra minutes if he cannot go.
Green was limited to 15 minutes during Monday's game against the Heat for precautionary reasons after being kneed near the groin area in the first half, Tom Osborn of the San Antonio Express-News reports.
Green indicated after Monday's game that he'll likely play Wednesday against Sacramento, although it's certainly possible that coach Gregg Popovich will err on the side of caution and allow Green to rest Wednesday, even though the injury isn't believed to be overly serious. If Green sits, Patty Mills and Jonathon Simmons will be in line for added minutes.
Gee is still recovering from thoracic outlook syndrome surgery, which shut him down for the season in September last year. The injury is nothing to overlook, as it has proven to be a career-ender in the past. Even before his injury, the righty struggled in his 33 appearances with Kansas City last year, logging a 4.68 ERA over 125 innings. If he is able to return to full health, the 30-year-old will offer rotation depth, likely starting the year in Triple-A.
Here we have a hulking defenseman on the last year of his entry-level contract, so the Bolts will have a chance to evaluate Dotchin to see where he might fit in the future plans. In the interim, he'll be on hand in case Victor Hedman (illness) misses his second straight game Tuesday night against the Ducks.
Embiid did not practice Tuesday but is considered probable to play Wednesday against the Raptors.
Embiid was simply held out to rest after playing Monday afternoon in Milwaukee, as the 76ers continue to closely monitor his on-court workload. Expect the leading Rookie of the Year candidate to be back in action Wednesday under his usual restriction of around 28 minutes.
