Sixers news:

Doug McDermott and Lonnie Walker were already in COVID protocol, so now the number is six.

San Antonio is 15-22 and broke a four-game skid with a Wednesday win in Boston. They are in the middle of a seven-game road swing that includes not one, but two back-to-backs. White, Vassel, and Johnson started in that Celtics game so it leaves Jakob Poeltl and Dejounte Murray as the only two healthy guys remaining from that group of five. Murray might go for 50 at the Wells Fargo Center because they don’t have anybody left.

Regardless, the Sixers should hammer whatever team the Spurs put on the floor tomorrow night. Key word “should…” It’s always an adventure with this team.
