The Sixers are losing averages of 19.2 points and 8.2 rebounds, so they will need more out of Matisse Thybulle and Georges Niang. “He’s struggling. The flu hit him really hard, but he’s down about it because he just feels like he can’t get a break. I told him the same thing, like, it’s gonna all work out at some point.”
On the flip side, the time off could do wonders for Harris.
“Your hip is gonna feel great,” Rivers said of his message to Harris. “You’re not gonna have COVID, you’re not gonna have the flu, and you’re gonna go on a run. You just got to hang in there.”
The Sixers will have to rely on their depth until Harris returns.
