Sixers starters James Harden, PJ Tucker out for matchup vs. Thunder

The Philadelphia 76ers will look to finish up their four-game road trip and the 2022 calendar year on a high note as they take on the Oklahoma City Thunder on Saturday. After two straight losses, the Sixers will look to bounce back and get back in the win column.

They will have to do so while being short-handed as Tyrese Maxey will miss Saturday’s matchup with the Thunder due to injury management on the second night of a back-to-back. The Sixers will also be down two other key pieces as well.

Both James Harden and PJ Tucker are out for this one due to their own injury management. Harden has averaged 39.1 minutes over the last 11 games since returning from a right foot tendon strain while Tucker has been dealing with a variety of ailments and has played in all 34 games to begin the season.
