76ers' Jimmy Butler: Unlikely to play Wednesday
Butler (groin) didn't participate in Tuesday's practice and is listed as doubtful for Wednesday's game against the Nets, Serena Winters of NBC Sports Philadelphia reports.
Butler strained his groin during Monday's win over the Pistons, and it sounds like the issue will force him to miss at least one game. His status should clear up closer to tipoff; if Butler is unable to play, Furkan Korkmaz would be a candidate to take his place in the starting lineup.... See More ... See Less
76ers' Jonah Bolden: Back from G League
The 76ers recalled Bolden from the G League's Delaware Blue Coats on Tuesday.
Bolden will participate in the 76ers' practice Tuesday, but it's unclear if he'll remain with the team through their next game Wednesday against the Nets. The rookie forward has seen only light action over his seven appearances at the NBA level this season but has been a double-double machine in his four outings at Delaware, averaging 15.5 points, 12.3 rebounds, 3.0 assists, 1.0 steal and 1.0 block in 33.2 minutes per game....

76ers' T.J. McConnell: Totals 14 points Monday
McConnell delivered 14 points (5-10 FG, 2-3 3Pt, 2-2 FT), six assists, four rebounds and two steals across 28 minutes in Monday's 116-102 win over the Pistons.
Monday night was McConnell's fifth game of the year eclipsing the double-digit point threshold, in large part due to his two three-pointers in the game, which matches his total from all season. While he doesn't shoot very much three-pointers, McConnell has seen a recent uptick in minutes, averaging 25 minutes over the last six games, and could be in line to take more shots.... See More ...

76ers' Furkan Korkmaz: Drops 18 points off bench
Korkmaz contributed 18 points (7-12 FG, 4-7 3Pt), seven rebounds, one assist and one steal across 26 minutes in Monday's 116-102 win over the Pistons.
Korkmaz had his best game of the season Monday night, hitting a season-high in points and rebounds, while also netting four threes in the contest. The 76ers remain a top-heavy roster, which could allow Korkmaz for a few more minutes off the bench, but don't expect much to come from the one offensive showing moving forward.... See More ...

76ers' Ben Simmons: Adds another double-double
Simmons produced 18 points (8-11 FG, 2-9 FT), 10 rebounds, seven assists, two steals and one block across 30 minutes in Monday's 116-102 win over the Pistons.
Make it five consecutive games in which Simmons has double-doubled, as his unique combination of size and passing has led him to a plethora of rebounds and assists so far this season. Simmons can be even more effective if he converts his free-throw opportunities, but owners can't complain with the numbers he puts up as it is.... See More ... See Less
76ers' Joel Embiid: Drops team-high 24 points
Embiid collected 24 points (6-16 FG, 1-4 3Pt, 11-14 FT), eight rebounds, three assists, two steals and two blocks across 33 minutes in Monday's 116-102 win over the Pistons.
After scoring an average of 13.7 points over his last three games, Embiid responded with a 24-point effort, highlighting his ability to get to the free-throw line and knock them down. He seems to be fine after the migraine issue over the weekend and should continue to put up solid numbers with his offensive role.... See More ... See Less
76ers' Jimmy Butler: Leaves with groin strain
Butler exited Monday's game against the Pistons with a strained groin and won't return, Serena Winters of NBC Sports Philadelphia reports.
Butler played 10 minutes before departing, finishing with zero points (0-3 FG, 0-1 3Pt), four rebounds and two assists. Until the 76ers provide an update on Butler's condition, he should be viewed as questionable for Wednesday's contest against the Nets. The swingman's absence for any length of time would likely result in increased run for Furkan Korkmaz, Wilson Chandler and Landry Shamet.... See More ... See Less
76ers' Amir Johnson: Heads to bench Monday
Johnson will come off the bench for Monday's game against Detroit.
Johnson, who got the start for Joel Embiid on Friday, will come off the bench Monday. The veteran center is averaging 4.0 points and 3.0 rebounds in 10.6 minutes per game on the year and failed to score in 16 minutes during his spot start Friday.... See More ... See Less
76ers' Landry Shamet: Cleared to play
Shamet (back) will be available Monday versus Detroit, Serena Winters of NBC Sports Philly reports.
Shamet was held out of practice Sunday due to a sore back, and the Sixers opted to wait until after pregame warmups to make a final ruling on his status. The rookie will play through any lingering soreness, and he's not expected to have a minutes limit. Shamet played 16 minutes Friday against the Pistons, finishing with three points and one assist....

76ers' Jonah Bolden: Headed back to G League
Bolden was reassigned to the G League on Monday.
Bolden will head back to the Delaware Blue Coats, and he'll be available for Monday night's G League contest. The forward saw two minutes of mop-up action over the weekend against Detroit, but prior to that he'd been a DNP-CD in 12 consecutive games.... See More ... See Less
76ers' Joel Embiid: Good to go for Monday
Embiid (head) wasn't listed on Philadelphia's injury report ahead of Monday's game against Detroit, Keith Pompey of The Philadelphia Inquirer reports.
Embiid didn't practice Sunday because of a migraine headache, but he'll be ready to play in his squad's upcoming matchup. He'll presumably take on his usual role within the starting five.... See More ... See Less
76ers' Landry Shamet: Questionable for Monday
Shamet (back) didn't practice Sunday and is questionable for Monday's game against the Pistons, Tom Moore of the Bucks County Courier Times reports.
It's unclear when Shamet suffered the lower back injury, but per reports, didn't partake in Sunday's practice and will be a game time decision for Monday's contest. With Markelle Fultz out for an extended period of time, teammates T.J. McConnell and Shake Milton are candidates to have an extended role if Shamet is held out Monday.... See More ... See Less
76ers' Joel Embiid: Doesn't practice Sunday
Embiid did not participate in Sunday's practice due to a migraine, Rich Hofmann of The Athletic reports.
Embiid missed Friday's game for rest purposes, and his absence from Sunday's practice puts him in jeopardy of missing a second consecutive contest. The big man should be considered questionable for Monday's game against the Pistons at this point. If Embiid is unable to play, Mike Muscala and Amir Johnson would once again stand to benefit from some extra run.... See More ... See Less
76ers' Ben Simmons: Continues double-double streak
Simmons scored 18 points (8-11 FG, 2-2 FT) while adding 14 rebounds, six assists, three blocks and a steal in 40 minutes during Friday's 117-111 win over the Pistons.
It's his 18th double-double of the season, including one in each of the last four games, but it's a testament to Simmons' multi-category excellence that he keeps finding new ways to record one -- in addition to points and boards, he's picked up points/assists and boards/assists double-doubles during that four-game stretch, while also extending his streak of games with at least one steal to 11....

76ers' Jimmy Butler: Erupts for 38 against Pistons
Butler scored 38 points (13-27 FG, 1-6 3Pt, 11-12 FT) while adding six rebounds, six assists, three steals and a block in 39 minutes during Friday's 117-111 win over the Pistons.
The 29-year-old stepped up with Joel Embiid (rest) in street clothes, and Butler was especially aggressive on the glass -- five of his six boards were in the offensive end. While his production as a Sixer has been inconsistent so far, he's now scored more than 30 points in three of the last six games.... See More ... See Less
76ers' Amir Johnson: Starting Friday
Johnson will start at center in place of Joel Embiid (rest) for Friday's matchup against the Pistons, Keith Pompey of The Philadelphia Inquirer reports.
Friday marks Embiid's first absence of the season, and Johnson is set to see extra run as a result. In 18 starts last year, Johnson averaged 6.9 points, 5.4 rebounds and 3.0 assists in 20.5 minutes.... See More ... See Less
