The Philadelphia 76ers will be without backup point guard Shake Milton on Saturday against the Phoenix Suns, but they will welcome back the return of an important backup big man.

Mike Scott, the team’s really only backup power forward, has been out since Jan. 14 due to right knee soreness and he missed 13 games. In his absence, the Sixers had to get creative with their lineups as they have had Tobias Harris running with the second unit a lot and they extended his minutes, but Scott will now return on Saturday against Phoenix in a time where they need him the most.

The Sixers missed Scott’s ability to stretch the floor as a power forward and the edge he brings off the bench. He can be a difference-maker on offense when his shot is falling and he can also help on the offensive glass.

Tipoff from Phoenix Suns Arena is set for 3 p.m. EST.
