The San Antonio Spurs and Philadelphia 76ers will go head-to-head in the City of Brotherly Love. A look at how to watch it online.
On Wednesday night, the San Antonio Spurs will complete the second of a back-to-back. The first game was against the New York Knicks, resulting in the Silver and Black’s second consecutive victory over the team from the Big Apple. This time around, the Spurs will be at the Wells Fargo Center, to play the Philadelphia 76ers.
San Antonio won’t have nearly half of its rotation. Kawhi Leonard, Tony Parker, Rudy Gay, Danny Green and Manu Ginobili were all ruled “out” vs. Philadelphia. Leonard and Parker remain under “return from injury management.” Green dealt with a groin injury in late December, so the team will play it cautious. Ginobili, despite his ageless play at 40-years-old, won’t suit up, either. Gay remains out, with a right heel injury that he suffered in December.
Who will step up? Dejounte Murray, Bryn Forbes and Kyle Anderson will join the starting lineup, accompanying LaMarcus Aldridge and Pau Gasol. Players like Brandon Paul and Joffrey Lauvergne could see increased minutes as well, given the lack of rotation depth for Wednesday’s matchup.
Spurs starters in Philly: Murray, Forbes, Anderson, Aldridge, Gasol.
