According to Keith Pompey of the Philadelphia Inquirer, Jimmy Butler will not play this evening against the San Antonio Spurs:

This is shaping up to be an interesting game for the Sixers. Joel Embiid and Ben Simmons are both a game-time-decision, so they may not suit up either. Gregg Popovich has made his bread and butter burying unprepared teams. The Sixers aren’t necessarily unprepared, but being a star or two down could have similar or worse effects than being unprepared against a tactician like Popovich. If the Sixers end up playing without all three of their stars? Well I think we all have a feeling about what the outcome will be...
Mentor vs. mentee tonight, by the way.
