Article Summary:

An important assignment for the Sixers’ defense in Morant’s absence will be Desmond Bane. After a slower start to the season, the young big man has tallied 21 points, 41.3 percent three-point shooting on 6.6 attempts, and 1.9 blocks per game without Morant. If Jackson Jr. plays, his size when attacking more off the bounce will be a tough cover for Tobias Harris, and the Sixers will need to watch him closely at the arc – he’ll let it fly whenever he gets open off a pick-and-pop or relocates into space on the move. The Grizzlies are better built to play well through injuries than most teams, but the Sixers have at least caught a break by facing them when their offense is weaker without Morant and Embiid could have a favorable matchup if Jackson Jr. and/or Adams are out.
