Wolves-Philadelpia game preview

  • Updated: December 3, 2012 - 11:18 PM

Preview: F Kevin Love (illness) and G Malcolm Lee (groin) returned to practice Monday, but F Andrei Kirilenko remained out because of back spasms that have bothered him since a Nov. 24 game at Golden State. He did not accompany the team to Philadelphia and is not expected to play Wednesday at Boston either. But the return of Love and Lee was good news for Adelman. "We made some real strides today: We started with 12 and ended with 12," he said ... G Ricky Rubio traveled with the team after practicing for the first time Sunday and Monday, but won't play on the two-game trip, Adelman said. "He's a long ways from doing that." ... The Sixers' 93-88 loss at Chicago on Saturday ended a three-game winning streak. They're now 10-7. They've beaten the Wolves four consecutive times in Philadelphia, but lost last season's only meeting, at Target Center.

Players to watch: The Sixers have just five players back from last season's team, but one of them is starting point guard Jrue Holiday, who has scored 20 or more points in a game six times this season after doing so 10 times in a 66-game season a year ago. He had a career-high 33 points last week against Phoenix ... Philadelphia made a big summer trade that sent away Olympian Andre Iguodala and brought back big center Andrew Bynum, but he hasn't played yet this season after exacerbating a knee injury while bowling.

Injuries: Wolves Love and Lee are expected to play. F Kirilenko, G Rubio (knee surgery), G Brandon Roy (knee surgery) and F Chase Budinger (knee surgery) are out. Sixers C Bynum (knee bone bruises) is out and G Nick Young (big toe hyperextension) is day-to-day.

JERRY ZGODA
