It wouldn't be a 76ers season without injuries holding players back, as news from training camp today indicates that Nik Stauskas, Pierre Jackson and T.J. McConnell all have some sort of ailment plaguing them, per the Philadelphia Inquirer's Keith Pompey:

The Stauskas injury seems more severe than the other two and is more concerning overall given that Sauce Castillo figures to factor heavily into a Jahlil Okafor-centric offense and that he might start on the wing for the Sixers this season. Pompey goes on the state that Stauskas' injury occurred on the third day of camp last week and that he's been held out of scrimmages ever since.

With those three held out currently hurt, here's a look at tomorrow night's starting lineup:

Jackson and McConnell's current situation can really derail their chances of making the team this season with the plethora of point guards currently on the Sixers' roster between those two, Tony Wroten, Kendall Marshall, Isaiah Canaan and Scottie Wilbekin all competing for just three point guards slots on the roster.

Stay tuned for more updates as the Sixers progress towards the preseason.
