As the Philadelphia 76ers prepare for the Houston Rockets on Monday back at home to open up the 2022 portion of their schedule, they will not have to prepare for two of their top players,

Following a halftime outburst on Saturday in their loss to the Denver Nuggets, the Rockets will suspend Kevin Porter Jr. and Christian Wood for their matchup with the Sixers on Monday. Porter Jr. left the arena at halftime and the Rockets benched Wood in the second half of the contest.

Wood is averaging a team-high 16.8 points and 10.3 rebounds while Porter Jr. is averaging 12.8 points and 5.7 assists as they are two of Houston’s top players. The decision is understandable considering the circumstances and the Sixers will face another shorthanded team in order to build momentum.

The Sixers are coming off a perfect 3-0 road trip and they will be looking to build that momentum and win some games at home. This is another opportunity for them to do so at the Wells Fargo Center at 7 p.m. EST.
