The Philadelphia 76ers begin a 3-game road trip on Wednesday as they take on the Cleveland Cavaliers looking to build off a 3-game winning streak. The Sixers have continued to find a way to pick up some wins despite being so short-handed and, after welcoming Joel Embiid back on Monday, they will look to continue to build.
As far as everybody’s status for Wednesday’s matchup with the Cavaliers is concerned, James Harden is still out as he recovers from the tendon strain in his right foot. Coach Doc Rivers did mention that Harden has been working in the practice facility so one has to wonder if The Beard could return on this current road trip.
Other than Harden, Tyrese Maxey and Jaden Springer also remain out. Maxey is out of his boot so that is a good sign for Philadelphia as they await his return.
Without Harden and Maxey, the Sixers will be looking to Shake Milton to continue his strong play while filling in for those guys.
