Sixers-Thunder Sunday Game Postponed

The SixersThunder game scheduled for Sunday night has been postponed due to ongoing contract tracing, the 14th postponement of the young season, the NBA announced in a press release.

Philadelphia doesn’t have the league-required eight players available to proceed, the league said. The team was seen warming up prior to the decision.

The cause is connected to the Sixers’ game against the Grizzlies on Saturday, according to ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski (Twitter link). Keith Pompey of the Philadelphia Inquirer adds (via Twitter) that the 76ers have no new positive cases to report at this time.

Seth Curry (health and safety protocols), Vincent Poirier (health and safety protocols), Mike Scott (knee) and Joel Embiid (knee) were the only players listed as out on the original injury report. The game was scheduled to commence at 7:00 pm ET on NBA TV.

Philadelphia has upcoming games scheduled against the Celtics on both Wednesday and Friday. The Sixers currently own the fourth-best record in the Eastern Conference at 9-5.

      Yeah it’s absurd. The Mavs played today with 5 key players out. Granted one was Hardaway who was injured. 4 were due to Covid. It was such a hard game to watch. Wasn’t even competitive. The standings will all but be irrelevant with teams juggling to try and fill out a lineup.

    Tim Legler talked about 76ers in the nba Finals two weeks ago
    Today a reporter is talking about 76ers against Lakers championship defense
    Reporter: if 76ers want to win a championship ……

    IMO
    76ers big 4 is not reliable
    Embiid injury issue
    Simmons shooting issue
    Harris is simply not good enough
    Green can’t create offense any more

    Trade is absolutely needed

    • I’m 100% with you. Problem is who do they trade? Simmons won’t even fetch you a lottery pick with his play this season. Embiid would get you a haul but when healthy he could be an MVP. Tobias won’t get you much if anything due to his contract. They are 7-0 with all starters present.

        Get Knicks involved
        Danny Green and salary release for Tucker and Oladipo

        I still believe
        If 76ers delivered an attractive package and use 4 team trade, Rockets would send Harden to 76ers
        Example
        Take Eric Gordon $76 million bad contract

        FYI
        It stands right now
        Warriors luxury tax $147 Million this year
