The Philadelphia 76ers (2-1) hit the road for a brief, two-game road trip beginning Tuesday night in Detroit (2-0) following by a Wednesday match-up in Milwaukee with the Bucks (2-0). The Sixers have begun the season short-handed off the bench, but the guys that have missed time look to be progressing towards a return.
Here's an update on the current injured Sixers and their status for Tuesday's game:
Jerryd Bayless: Bayless sprained his knee in the preseason and remains out for the foreseeable future.
Wilson Chandler: Chandler suffered a left hamstring strain in the Sixers first preseason game. He is progressing in basketball activities and was a partial participant in Monday's practice. He'll miss the next two games (at DET, at MIL) and be re-evaluated prior to Saturday's home game against the Hornets.
Mike Muscala: Muscala has missed the first three games with a left ankle sprain. He was a full participant in Monday's practice and is listed as questionable.
Ben Simmons: Simmons left the Sixers game against Orlando in the first quarter with back tightness. He did not practice on Monday an is listed as questionable for Tuesday's game in Detroit.
