As the Philadelphia 76ers prepare to take on the Los Angeles Lakers on Sunday night to continue their five-game road trip, they might have to battle the Lakers while missing some key players.
They were down Tobias Harris in Saturday’s win over the Utah Jazz due to left knee soreness and he is listed as questionable for the matchup with the Lakers. Therefore, nothing has changed there with Harris.
James Harden has now joined Harris on the injury report as he is listed as questionable for the contest with the Lakers due to left heel pain. He scored 18 of his 31 points in the fourth quarter on Saturday as he was a big reason for the Sixers being able to come away with a win.
If Harris is unable to go, one has to imagine that coach Doc Rivers will just turn to De’Anthony Melton again in the lineup. As for Harden, if he can’t go, then the Sixers will have to find a way to replace what The Beard brings to the table.
Tipoff from Crypto.com Arena is set for 9:30 p.m. EST.
