Harris missed Philadelphia’s last six games and hasn’t played since their 122-94 win against the Atlanta Hawks on Oct. 30. Guard Seth Curry was sidelined by a left foot contusion when the Sixers lost to the Milwaukee Bucks 118-109 on Tuesday but was also in the starting five against Toronto on Thursday. Despite being shorthanded, the Sixers have routinely dominated opposing second units – they have the third-best aggregate bench net rating in the NBA.
Harris averaged 33 minutes in Philadelphia’s first six games, but do not expect him to reach that number vs. the Raptors. After hosting the Raptors, the Sixers will go on a six-game road trip that will see them visit the Indiana Pacers, Utah Jazz, Denver Nuggets, Portland Trail Blazers, Sacramento Kings and Golden State Warriors.
