Dario Saric OUT vs. Pistons, Expected Return Friday vs. Cavs

New, comments

Dario Saric has been sidelined with an infection on his elbow, and is expected to be back Friday.

NBA: New York Knicks at Philadelphia 76ers Bill Streicher-USA TODAY Sports

Dario Saric has already missed one game, and will miss another tonight vs. the Brooklyn Nets.

Add tomorrow’s away game against the Detroit Pistons to that list.

It would be nice to have the 2nd year forward vs. the Pistons, who are bad but definitely capable of stealing one against the Sixers in a game in which the Sixers will be on the second leg of a back-to-back. What’s more important though is that the Sixers will have Dario against the Cavs, a matchup that could have serious playoff seeding implications.

Here’s to hoping things go as planned....

Cue the “he’ll be out until next season” jokes.
