Jahlil Okafor left Thursday’s game early in the third quarter and is available to return after dealing with left hamstring tightness.
This just happened and we don’t have a lot of info at this time. Nerlens Noel subbed in for him and we’ve had him as a must-stash guy so there shouldn’t be any confusion about whether or not he should be on the wire.
Update: Okafor was treated for left hamstring tightness and returned midway through the third quarter.

Update II: Okafor said he would play in Friday’s game and he finished with 13 points, four rebounds and two assists in 6-of-15 shooting. He’s just a low-end asset in Philly’s logjam of big men.
