Full injury report for De’Anthony Melton, Sixers vs. Knicks at home

The Philadelphia 76ers will get back at it on Thursday when they take on the New York Knicks at home. Philadelphia is sitting as the No. 5 seed coming out of the All-Star break and is half a game back of the Knicks for No. 4 in the standings.

The Sixers will continue to be a bit short-handed in this contest as Joel Embiid (left knee meniscus procedure), De’Anthony Melton (lumbar spine stress response), and Robert Covington (left knee bone bruise) all remain out.

Embiid will be re-evaluated in early March. Melton was at practice on Wednesday, but he will remain out and hasn’t remained out since Jan. 12. Covington hasn’t played since Dec. 30.

Nic Batum is listed as questionable due to a left hamstring strain. He hasn’t played since Jan. 29.

Tobias Harris, who missed the final two games before the All-Star break due to a left hip impingement, is not listed on the injury report.

Tip off on Thursday between the Sixers and the Knicks is set for 7 p.m. EST from the Wells Fargo Center.
