Elton will not return to night. I personally think that is a good thing since his return may have messed up the rhythm our team is in.
Elton Brand will not dress for Friday night's game against the San Antonio Spurs, though he did participate in the morning shoot around. Instead, the Sixers' starting power forward will be missing his 14th consecutive game after dislocating his right shoulder in a game on Dec. 17 against the Milwaukee Bucks...It is undecided if Elton Brand will play in New York Saturday night. Whenever he returns, the Sixers will hold fast to playing him in 4-to-5 minute spurts until they feel he has his legs back.
