The Philadelphia 76ers have been without their entire starting frontcourt for two games.
They expect a healthier squad when they meet the Houston Rockets at the Wachovia Center.
Glenn Robinson, out with a sprained left ankle, will not be available until later in the week.
Playing without their frontcourt starters, the Sixers knocked off the defending champion San Antonio Spurs 100-96 on Friday. But the momentum from that win did not carry over, as the Sixers fell to the Cleveland Cavaliers 91-88 in overtime Saturday.
Allen Iverson, who had 36 points and 12 assists Friday, matched a season low with 19 points on 8-of-29 shooting against the Cavs.
“If I have an off-night, I have an off-night,” Iverson said. “But I don’t do my teammates any favors if I quit trying. You have to keep fighting and hopefully something will happen at the end. That’s the way it nearly went.”
The Sixers shot just 34 percent, but still had a chance to win in the closing seconds of overtime. Rookie Kyle Korver missed a potential game-winning 3-pointer with 5.5 seconds remaining.
Philadelphia will hope for a better effort against Houston, which lost to the Toronto Raptors 101-97 in double overtime Sunday.
The Rockets won four straight before losing two of their last three.
