FINAL: Sixers 101, Magic 96. Philly wins a clunker, surviving a night when Embiid goes 4-of-16, Maxey goes 2-of-12 and Harris goes 8-of-20. Curry was terrific with 24 on 10-of-13 shooting.
Sixers are 11-10. Next up, a four-game trip at Boston, Atlanta and Charlotte (twice). – 9:14 PM

Gina Mizell @ginamizell
Tyrese Maxey has struggled from the field tonight (2-of-12). But he’s got nine assists, eight rebounds (including that one off the Wagner missed 3) and perhaps just iced the game with those two free throws to make this a two-possession game with less than a minute to play. – 9:08 PM

Per Sixers PR, Shake Milton is active tonight after missing Saturday’s game with a groin injury. He just finished his on-court pregame workout and was moving pretty well. Other than Danny Green still on a minutes restriction, the Sixers’ rotation should be intact tonight. – 5:41 PM

Doc Rivers: Danny Green’s minutes cap won’t be much higher tonight. He’ll be on a restriction for at least another week or two.
Rivers wouldn’t reveal his starters but noted some of the pros/cons of Thybulle vs. Green, including Thybulle’s man doubling on Joel Embiid. – 5:22 PM

Doc Rivers says Danny Green is still on a minutes restriction. He did add that he and the coaches are always thinking about playing with the starting lineup, I.e. Matisse Thybulle getting more run and such. #Sixers5:19 PM
Justin Grasso @JGrasso_
Doc Rivers says Danny Green will probably have a minutes restriction for the next week or two. His playing time will be between 17-20 minutes #Sixers5:19 PM

Doc Rivers says that the coaching staff has thought about moving Danny Green to the bench even when his minutes restriction is lifted, but it doesn’t seem to be a permanent move right now. Reiterates that this is a starting lineup that can continue to change #Sixers5:18 PM

#Sixers coach Doc Rivers won’t say if Danny Green will start or come off the bench tonight. – 5:17 PM

Danny Green on the difficulty of not finishing games because of his minutes restriction coming off his hamstring injury: “It’s tough watching on the sideline, but it’s part of the process. I gotta continue to trust it and move forward game by game.” – 2:27 PM
