Click for full story. The Memphis Grizzlies and the second or third-best perimeter defender in the league await the Sixers tonight for the second game of the Ice Capades trip. Jason Richardson is out, which leaves Doug Collins with a decision for his starting lineup.

Click for full story. Part one of the "hold on until Bynum hits the floor" strategy is to remain as close to .500 as possible for as long as possible. Part two is to steal as many games as you can from teams you'll be chasing for playoff position. This afternoon's game in Brooklyn is a prime example. The Sixers' first trip to Brooklyn features a game which falls into both categories.

Click for full story. In what is sure to be a sideshow compared to the Bynum news we're expecting to hear today, Lou Williams is coming to town for the first time in a uniform other than the Sixers. The 15-8 Atlanta Hawks haven't missed a beat without Joe Johnson (or his $125M contract), but the Sixers have to be desperate to kill their five-game slide prior to leaving for their Ice Capades trip.

Click for full story. I'm not a hard man to please. Today, I don't care about the Sixers' embarrassing loss to the Rockets last night, I don't care about Turner's twisted ankle or Jrue's soft-tissue foot injury. I don't care the team has less depth than one of these. All I ask is that at some point today, a doctor says, "Andrew Bynum is cleared for basketball activities." Let me head into tomorrow's zombie apocalypse feeling good about something related to the Sixers, I think I've earned it.

Click for full story. While the Sixers were imploding in the fourth quarter last night, the Rockets were sitting at home, watching, probably chuckling a little bit. If the Sixers thought it was tough keeping OJ Mayo out of the lane, what are they going to do with James Harden?

Click for full story. The Sixers will begin their toughest stretch of the year tonight in Dallas. Jrue is apparently listed as a game-time decision, but I'm going in certain he won't play. Collins said a few more days on Sunday, and no one comes back earlier than expected for this team...ever. So it's Turner's show to run for one more game, at least.

Click for full story. The Sixers picked up 12 wins without Andrew Bynum, over an easy stretch of the schedule. They've now matched those 12 wins with 12 losses heading into the toughest stretch of their schedule and I can't but feel the hole is going to be too deep to dig out of when the dust settles in January.

Click for full story. The Sixers will play host to the struggling Los Angeles Lakers tonight at the WFC. Kobe, Dwight and Co. currently sit at a deceptive 10-14 on the year, but their point differential (+2.3) tells a different story. They're dangerous, but disorganized with a PG to run the show. The Sixers, unfortunately, may also be without their starting PG. Jrue is listed as a game-time decision.

Click for full story. The Sixers may be without the services of Jrue Holiday (boot pictured above), who was diagnosed with a sprained foot yesterday, for their road game in Indy tonight. Jrue is officially day-to-day, and will travel with the team, so there's a chance he'll suit up. Either way, tonight is probably the point at which this schedule flips on its head.

Click for full story. Typically, in this league made for TV, production equals respect. I'm not talking about respect from the national media, or respect from the fans, I'm talking about respect from the refs. When you're an unknown rookie, you don't get the borderline whistles. When you're mostly a jump shooter who rarely ventures into the lane, you don't get the borderline whistles. When you're a finesse player who shies away from contact, you don't get the borderline whistles. Jrue is none of those things anymore, and it's about time he started getting the benefit of the doubt.

Click for full story. Will the Bulls be more angry or tired after a tough loss to the Clippers late last night in Chicago? Either way, the Bulls have holes the Sixers need to attack tonight if they're going to get even for a loss earlier in the year.

Click for full story. Jrue, Evan, Thad...JET? Eh, I'm not sold, but let's run with it for today. Those three guys all showed up last night, and the Sixers needed every last bit from them in their battle against the Pistons and their merciless parade to the foul line.

Click for full story. When the Sixers first met the Pistons, they were a helpless 0-8 on the season with more questions than answers. Rudderless, perhaps. On that night, nearly a month ago, the Sixers came out lifeless and got their doors blown off. Tonight, they will attempt to exact their revenge against a much more cohesive Detroit unit.

Click for full story. The Celtics and Sixers teams who met in the Eastern Conference semifinals last season were both cut from the same cloth. Amazing defenses (the Celtics were #1 in DFR, Sixers #3), terrible offenses (Philly #21, Boston #25). This year, both squads are taking the more traditional statistical approach to mediocrity.
