76ers' Nicolas Batum: Goes through practice
Batum (finger) practiced in full Monday, Noah Levick of NBC Sports Philadelphia reports.
Batum sat out Friday's game against the Celtics, but he'll be good to go for Wednesday's outing against the Wizards. The 76ers will be at full strength Wednesday, so Batum's usage rate may drop.... See More ... See Less
76ers' Danuel House: Practices Monday
House (quad) participated in Monday's practice, Noah Levick of NBC Sports Philadelphia reports.

Maxey (illness) was a full participant at Monday's practice, Justin Grasso of SI.com reports.
Maxey was unable to play in Friday's game against the Celtics, but he's had the full weekend to recover and is all set to return Wednesday against the Wizards. Joel Embiid (illness) and Kelly Oubre (ribs) are also set to return for the 76ers.... See More ... See Less
76ers' Joel Embiid: Goes through practice

76ers' Kelly Oubre: Will play Wednesday
Oubre (ribs) has been cleared to play in Wednesday's game against the Wizards, Keith Pompey of The Philadelphia Inquirer reports.
Oubre was a full participant at Monday's practice and walked away without any setbacks. Oubre will likely have restrictions right out of the gate, but his return will provide a big lift to the 76ers on both ends of the court. In eight appearances this season, Oubre averaged 16.3 points, 5.1 rebounds, 1.4 steals and 1.8 three-pointers.... See More ... See Less
76ers' Robert Covington: Busy in loss to Celtics
Covington posted 18 points (4-9 FG, 3-6 3Pt, 7-7 FT), five rebounds, one assist, one block and five steals across 30 minutes off the bench during Friday's 125-119 loss to Boston.
While Paul Reed moved into the starting five for the 76ers in place of Joel Embiid (illness), Covington also saw an increased role as he played at least 30 minutes for only the third time in a Sixers jersey. The veteran forward responded with season highs in points and steals. Covington is still capable of making an impact when he gets enough court time, but his production remains erratic on a game-to-game basis -- he's drained multiple threes in three of the last four games but failed to score a point in the fourth contest....

76ers' Paul Reed: Season-high scoring in spot start
Reed accumulated 14 points (6-7 FG, 1-1 3Pt, 1-1 FT), four rebounds, one assist and one block over 21 minutes during Friday's 125-119 loss to Boston.
With Joel Embiid (illness) unavailable, Reed got the start at center and responded with a season high in points. Reed has scored in double digits only three times all year, but those performances have all come within the last nine games -- a stretch in which he's averaging 7.0 points, 4.2 boards, 0.9 blocks and 0.7 steals in just 16.7 minutes a night while shooting 60.0 percent from the floor....

76ers' Tobias Harris: Strong defensive effort in loss
Harris finished with 14 points (6-16 FG, 1-1 3Pt, 1-3 FT), five rebounds, three assists and four steals in 38 minutes during Friday's 125-119 loss to the Celtics.
Even with Joel Embiid (illness) and Tyrese Maxey (illness) out of the lineup, Harris didn't see a large increase in his usage, but he did produce a season high in steals. The veteran forward has failed to score in double digits only once all season, and over the last 12 games, Harris is averaging 17.3 points, 5.8 boards, 2.7 assists, 0.9 threes and 0.8 steals....

76ers' De'Anthony Melton: Pops for 21 against Celtics
Melton amassed 21 points (7-19 FG, 4-12 3Pt, 3-4 FT), four rebounds, two assists, one block and one steal in 37 minutes before fouling out of Friday's 125-119 loss to Boston.
With Joel Embiid and Tyrese Maxey both sidelined due to an illness, Melton stepped up on the offensive end with his third game of the season of 20-plus points, and his fourth straight game with at least three made three-pointers. Over the last 10 contests, the 25-year-old guard has found another gear, averaging 17.1 points, 4.6 boards, 3.2 threes, 3.1 assists and 1.3 steals while shooting 44.4 percent from beyond the arc.... See More ... See Less
76ers' Patrick Beverley: Big numbers in Friday's loss
Beverley produced 26 points (10-15 FG, 3-5 3Pt, 3-5 FT), eight rebounds, seven assists and two steals across 38 minutes during Friday's 125-119 loss to Boston.
With Joel Embiid (illness) and Tyrese Maxey (illness) both unavailable, Beverley got his first start of the season and led the depleted Sixers in points, boards and assists. The veteran guard hadn't scored more than six points before this week, but he's scored in double digits for three straight games while making eight of his 11 total three-pointers on the year during that stretch....

76ers' Patrick Beverley: Joins starting five
Beverley will join the starting lineup for Friday's game against the Celtics, Ky Carlin of USA Today reports.
Tyrese Maxey (illness) is sitting out Friday's game, but this will likely be a spot-start situation for Beverley, as the 76ers off until Wednesday against the Pelicans after this one. Beverley has played well in his last two games, averaging 11.5 points and 5.0 assists.... See More ... See Less
76ers' Paul Reed: Enters starting lineup
Reed will start Friday's game against Boston, Ky Carlin of USA Today reports.
Joel Embiid (illness) is sitting out Friday's game, so Reed will start at center, while Marcus Morris replaces Nicolas Batum (finger) at power forward. Reed offers plenty of fantasy upside, particularly in category leagues. In his last outing against the Pelicans on Wednesday, Reed had nine points, five assists, four rebounds and one steal....

76ers' Nicolas Batum: Will not play
Batum (finger) will not play in Friday's game against the Celtics, Ky Carlin of USA Today reports.
This is a surprise, as Batum was previously listed as probable. Marcus Morris will replace Batum in the lineup, and he could see plenty of shots Friday due to both Tyrese Maxey and Joel Embiid being sidelined due to illness.... See More ... See Less
76ers' Tyrese Maxey: Ruled out Friday
Maxey (illness) will not play in Friday's game against Boston, Ky Carlin of USA Today reports.
Maxey tried to warm up to see if he could give it a go, but he'll join Joel Embiid (illness) on the shelf. Patrick Beverley will enter the starting five in Maxey's place, while Tobias Harris and De'Anthony Melton will soak up a lot of usage on the offensive end. After Friday's game, the 76ers are off until Wednesday against the Wizards.... See More ... See Less
76ers' Jaden Springer: Good to go
Springer (illness) is available for Friday's game versus the Celtics.
Springer has been upgraded from probable to available after missing the previous two games with a non-COVID illness. The 21-year-old guard has averaged 5.4 points, 2.8 rebounds and 1.0 assists in 15.6 minutes across his last five appearances.... See More ... See Less
76ers' Kelly Oubre: Set to practice Monday
Coach Nick Nurse said Friday that Oubre (ribs) will be a full participant in Monday's practice, Jared Weiss of The Athletic reports.
Oubre suffered a fractured rib in a car accident and will miss his 11th straight contest Friday. However, Oubre logging multiple practices at full participation is a good sign of his availability for Wednesday's matchup with Washington.... See More ... See Less
76ers' Joel Embiid: Won't play Friday
Embiid (illness) has been ruled out for Friday's game against the Celtics, Tim Bontemps of ESPN.com reports.
Embiid will miss a second straight game due to an illness. Tyrese Maxey (illness) may also be sidelined Friday, so Philadelphia is at risk of being extremely shorthanded versus Boston. Marcus Morris started in Embiid's absence Wednesday, but Paul Reed and Robert Covington each played around 30 minutes. Embiid's next chance to suit up will come Wednesday in Washington.... See More ... See Less
76ers' Tyrese Maxey: Late addition to injury report
Maxey is listed as questionable for Friday's game versus the Celtics due to an illness.
Maxey is in danger of missing his first game this season after being a late addition to Friday's injury report. If the star guard is ruled out, Patrick Beverley and De'Anthony Melton are candidates to receive increased minutes.... See More ... See Less
