Despite missing the last two games due to knee soreness, Sixers coach Brett Brown said he does not expect Jahlil Okafor to miss much more time.
The Sixers say Okafor will be re-evaluated on Tuesday morning as they get ready to head out on a four-game road trip to the West coast. Even when Okafor is healthy, Dario Saric and Richaun Holmes are the Sixers big guys you want to own. However, keep an eye on recently signed Shawn Long who had a big night on Monday, scoring 13 points and grabbing seven rebounds in the Sixers blowout loss to the Bucks. Long is, ahem, merely a long shot to stick around, but if Okafor does not travel with the team he could see some more time on the floor this road trip.
