Chandler Will Start, Muscala Ready to Play vs Heat
The Sixers will be without Jimmy Butler on Monday night in Miami against the Heat, he is expected to be ready to play on Wednesday night in Orlando, but they will get some help back tonight.
Wilson Chandler, who did not play in Memphis on Saturday night, will start at power forward tonight vs. the Heat and Mike Muscala is available to play after missing three games with a broken nose.
With Robert Covington and Dario Saric no longer here, Chandler and Muscala could see some increased minutes at those spots.
It will be interesting to see who the Sixers end up starting once Butler arrives.
Rookie Landry Shamet, who started on Saturday night, will head back to the bench. He played 43 minutes, but struggled Saturday night, hitting on just 2-of-13 shots (1-of-11 from 3-point range) for five points with one rebound, five assists and two steals.
Tonight's lineup will consist of Markelle Fultz, J.J. Redick, Ben Simmons, Wilson Chandler and Joel Embiid.
