From the Sixers:

Brett Brown said he’s not sure if Smith will get in the game. I’d think he’ll likely get a run if the Sixers put this one away early, which they should.
Smith has played four games for the Blue Coats this season at 19.8 minutes per. He’s averaging 5 points, 2 rebounds, and 1.5 assists while shooting 37.5% from the floor, which is probably what you’d expect from a guy who has gone through a combination Jones fracture and allergy complication. The Sixers saw him as a two-way wing with a lot of upside when they traded for him back in June, and just seeing Zhaire back on the court will be a nice moment in general considering that he got hit with the same rookie curse that sidelined Ben Simmons, Joel Embiid, Jahlil Okafor, Nerlens Noel, and Markelle Fultz.
James Ennis will start for Jimmy Butler tonight, who is getting a rest. Boban Marjanovic is available after missing the last six games.
