Wilson Chandler will make his 76ers' debut on Saturday vs. the Detroit Pistons at the Wells Fargo Center.
The reserve small forward missed the first nine games of the season with a strained left hamstring. He will be on a 10-minute restriction.
The Sixers acquired Chandler in an offseason trade with the Denver Nuggets.
Chandler, who's in the final year of his contract, reminds Sixers coach Brett Brown of players who are "multipurpose defensively and offensively."
The 6-foot-9, listed 225-pounder can play both forward positions and switch off and defend shooting guards. Right now, he'll just back up small forward Robert Covington until his minutes increase after getting into optimum game shape.
