• Jimmy Butler
    G/F, Philadelphia Sixers

    Jimmy Butler (back tightness) will not play in Thursday's game against the Bucks.

    This news doesn't come as a surprise as the Sixers are on the second half of a back-to-back Thursday. Signs are pointing to Mike Scott starting in Butler's absence. They don't have much depth behind Butler, but look at Scott and Jonathon Simmons as dart throws. Zhaire Smith might also pick up additional minutes.
