Jimmy Butler will join Sixers leading scorer Joel Embiid and Wilson Chandler on the sidelines as their team is in Denver to face the Nuggets reports Yahoo's Chris B. Haynes.

Butler has been dealing with a sprained right wrist that kept him out of the last two games, both Sixer wins.

In his place, the Sixers have started Corey Brewer, who just signed a second 10-day contract.

According to Haynes, Butler’s chances of playing in Los Angles on Tuesday look likely.

Butler's absence mean the Sixers will face the Nuggets without their two leading scorers. Butler is averaging 19.6 points per game to go along with 4.9 rebounds.
