• Nerlens Noel (knee) was ruled out for Friday’s game against the Heat.

    We thought the Sixers’ injury reporting was suspect and now Jerami Grant gets a huge boost, and the signing of Christian Wood becomes a whole lot more interesting.  Jahlil Okafor is also out, so Richaun Holmes and Wood become flier plays. 

    Nik Stauskas and Kendall Marshall are also out, so Isaiah Canaan has a very good shot at late-round value and Hollis Thompson may go for something like 17 points and four treys, even though he is on a minute restriction.  T.J. McConnell (ankle) is also under a minute restriction, and Brett Brown hasn’t honored a restriction for any of these guys in a while.  Elton Brand will play but we’ll see if he is still capable of running up and down the court.
