Docs Rivers says 76ers are essentially down to seven players against Nuggets


Saturday afternoon’s game between the Denver Nuggets and the Philadelphia 76ers appears to be going even though the latter team could be reduced to essentially seven players, according to coach Doc Rivers.
Rivers said Philadelphia would have eight active players after several Sixers were placed in NBA health and safety protocols and forced into quarantine after being around guard Seth Curry, who allegedly tested positive to COVID-19 earlier this week.

However, one of those active players is forward Mike Scott, who suffers from a bruised knee and is not ready to go. Eight active players needed for the game to avoid becoming the second postponement of the NBA season linked to COVID-19

“An hour ago we were told we were playing. We have eight active players. One is Mike Scott, and I can tell you now that I’m not going to play him, ”Rivers told reporters earlier on Saturday, by Mike Singer of the Denver Post.

“Dwight Howard is going to play the point guard…” he added jokingly.

Rivers added that he doesn’t think the game should be played.

According to ESPNest Adrian Wojnarowski.
