The Philadelphia 76ers will definitely be shorthanded on Monday when they take on the New York Knicks to begin a 3-game homestand. The team will be without Joel Embiid, Tobias Harris, Matisse Thybulle, and Isaiah Joe who are all in the health and safety protocols, but they will at least get a starter back.

After missing three games with left hamstring tightness, the Sixers will welcome Danny Green back to the lineup against the Knicks. Green will help at least ease the blow of the Sixers being so shorthanded as he is a key piece of what they do out on the floor.

Green is shooting 43.8% from deep to begin the season so the Sixers are getting back a shooter who helps the team on the offensive end to help space the floor on that end. He is also one of the team’s top perimeter defenders so he can help on both ends in this one as well.

Tipoff from the Wells Fargo Center is set for 7 p.m. EST.
