On Friday, the Sixers were without defensemen James Harden (foot), Furkan Korkmaz (knee) and Jayden Springer (quad).

Harden has been out of action since November 2 with a foot injury, with an initial schedule of at least a month off the court. Former Most Valuable Player reportedly said he remains on track to return as scheduled this week, which would mean a return in early December.

Their opponents in the next five games are the Minnesota Timberwolves 7-8, the Brooklyn Nets 7-9, the Charlotte Hornets 4-13 and two games against the Orlando Magic 5-11.

In the meantime, Philadelphia will rely on the likes of Matisse Tibull, De’Anthony Melton and Shake Milton to handle the situation at the top.
