T.J. McConnell (sprained AC Joint, left shoulder) is out against the Cavs on Saturday, with Dario Saric (lacerated left eye) listed as questionable.
Saric may be more on the side of doubtful as Brett Brown was quoted as saying, “If you stick a gun to my head, I’m not expecting him to play.” Richaun Holmes played 22 minutes last game with Saric sitting out and turned in a 13 point, six rebound, two steal performance. He will get another opportunity tonight, especially with Joel Embiid not available. Trevor Booker is set to make his Sixer debut and should see some decent minutes as well. McConnell tried to play through the shoulder pain last game but will take this one off as sprained AC joints typically take anywhere from two-to-six weeks to fully heal.
