Nuggets hold off scrappy Sixers squad playing only 7 deep

76ers will have only nine players against the Denver Nuggets Sources - Philadelphia 76ers await NBA ruling on Saturday's game vs. Denver Nuggets

The Philadelphia 76ers are set to play Saturday without All-Stars Ben Simmons and Joel Embiid, and will have the National Basketball Association minimum eight players active as the team deals with injuries and COVID-19 concerns.

"Then coming here, an hour ago we were told we were playing". 'I do worry about our player health. Furkan Korkmaz (left adductor strain) and Terrance Ferguson (personal reasons) were missing, too, and Rivers didn't think Mike Scott was fit to play after the veteran forward missed the last four games with a left knee contusion.

Curry, who sat out Thursday's game with left ankle soreness, spent the first quarter on the bench, before the Sixers were made aware of a positive test, sources said.

The Sixers played without Seth Curry, who tested positive for COVID-19 during Thursday's loss at Brooklyn.

"Joel started complaining about his back, that started yesterday", Rivers revealed.

"We've got to be very careful in how we navigate the next week".

"Dwight Howard's going to play point guard." he added, jokingly.

The Nuggets were without forward Michael Porter Jr., who will remain in the NBA's health and safety protocol. "I'm really happy for him and not only just his scoring, he really didn't turn the ball over, he had a great assist night, he had a great rebound night, he did a lot of things for us tonight".

Since 1963-64, only Allen Iverson - on 11 occasions in 1996-97 - and Andrew Toney - once in 1980-81 - had previously scored 35 points or more in a game as a rookie for the franchise. We had a walkthrough that I wasn't a part of because I was on a call with the league, so I have a list here that I've not even looked at.

The Doc Rivers-led squad didn't go down without a fight as they managed to keep within striking distance.

"We put in the zone that we ran today during shootaround", Rivers said with a laugh. Harris hit two 3s, the Nuggets shot 68% (13 of 19) and outscored the Sixers 35-21. Curry will miss five more games at least.

Denver will travel to take on New York Knicks on Sunday.
