The Philadelphia 76ers will continue their road trip on Saturday when they pay a visit to the defending champion Denver Nuggets. The Sixers will be looking for a bounce back performance following a loss in Indiana to open the 5-game trip.
Philadelphia will be a bit short-handed in this one as the injury report still lists De’Anthony Melton (lumbar spine stress response) and Robert Covington (left knee bone bruise) as out. The Sixers will continue to look for others to step up in their place.
Tobias Harris, who missed the loss in Indiana, is still listed as questionable with an illness and Tyrese Maxey will join the injury report. He is listed as questionable as well with a left ankle sprain.
Mo Bamba (right knee inflammation) remains questionable and Marcus Morris Sr. (left foot plantar fasciitis) is probable.

If Maxey can’t go, it will certainly be a tough matchup for the Sixers. Of course, having Joel Embiid on the floor will erase a lot of issues, but Maxey is obviously a huge key to anything Philadelphia wants to do.
Tip off from Ball Arena is set for 5:30 p.m. EST on Saturday.
