Jahlil Okafor (shin) and Nerlens Noel (leg) did not practice on Thursday.
It’s great to get some actual injury news this time after multiple Sixers players have gone under the radar with their injuries. Both are listed as day-to-day. In Okafor’s case, they don’t quite have a grip on if this is a small thing or a big thing and they’re waiting for him to have no pain. For Noel, three games ago he showed signs of knee soreness during pregame warmups and at the end of the game, then when he left Wednesday’s game they called it a knee contusion. He’s had what they’ve called a ‘leg’ injury throughout the year. So the Sixers run loose with their classifications, and if either of these guys is ailing at all they’re going to err on the side of caution.
