The Philadelphia 76ers have ruled out Mike Scott ahead of their matchup against the Charlotte Hornets on Saturday night. The forward suffered a left knee contusion in Philly’s blowout win over the Orlando Magic on Thursday. Scott will be re-evaluated over the next few days.

Saturday’s game will be the first 2020-21 contest Scott has missed. The forward is averaging 16 minutes per game off the bench under head coach Doc Rivers, which is only a slight down-tick from the amount of time he averaged under Brett Brown over the course of 68 games last season (17.8 minutes per game).

The Sixers also remain without Furkan Korkmaz, who suffered an adductor strain in Philly’s lone loss through their first five games of the 2020-21 season.

All the other members of the Sixers are good to go against Charlotte.

The Hornets have a healthy squad, outside of Cody Zeller. Charlotte’s center is expected to be out until mid-to-late January after he underwent surgery to repair his fractured left hand.
