Okafor is doubtful vs. Utah Jazz

PHOENIX – Brett Brown believes Jahlil Okafor will miss his second consecutive game with a sore right knee.

"I don't think so," the 76ers coach responded to being asked Sunday if his rookie center will face the Utah Jazz in Monday's game at EnergySolutions Arena.

"It's for sure 50-50," Brown added. "If you made me guess, I'd say no. I could say no."

Meanwhile, Richaun Holmes returned to practice Sunday and will play against the Jazz (12-16).  The rookie reserve power forward suffered a game-ending sprained right knee in the third quarter of Saturday's 111-104 victory over the Phoenix.

Okafor missed that game due to his knee soreness. The 6-foot-11, 265-pound is the leading scorer at 17.6 points for (2-30).

Reserve power forward Carl Landry will be on a 20-minute restriction Monday night.
