76ers’ Okafor out with right knee soreness
ORLANDO, Fla. (AP) Philadelphia 76ers center Jahlil Okafor is
sitting out Monday’s game against the Orlando Magic because of
soreness in his right knee.
Okafor initially experienced soreness in the knee during the
first half of Sunday’s win over the Boston Celtics and did not
play in the second half. Okafor is day to day as the 76ers
begin a five-game road trip.
Second-year center Richaun Holmes is scheduled to start in
Okafor’s place against Orlando. Joel Embiid is also out with a
torn meniscus in his left knee.
