Some pre-game notes:

  • There is no Sixers broadcast for tonight's preseason game, but there will be a Knicks broadcast, meaning you can catch the game on NBA League Pass if you're subscribed.
  • Jahlil Okafor (right knee soreness) and Nerlens Noel (lower back and left knee contusion) are out for tonight's contest. Richaun Holmes and Jerami Grant will replace them in the starting lineup, respectively. Pierre Jackson will miss another game as well while he continues to recover from a groin injury.
  • The Knicks have ruled out top pick Kristaps Porzingis (strained left quad), Arron Afflalo (sore left hamstring), and Kevin Seraphin (sore right knee) for tonight's game.
