Markelle Fultz, Dario Saric to play vs. Celtics; J.J. Redick, Robert Covington out
The Celtics are expected to rest most of their starters in Monday night's matchup against Sixers.
BOSTON — Markelle Fultz, Timothe Luwawu-Cabarrot, Dario Saric and James Michael McAdoo will all be available when the 76ers face the Boston Celtics in Monday night's preseason game at T.D. Garden.
Meanwhile, the Sixers (0-2) will rest J.J. Redick and Robert Covington against their Atlantic Division rivals. Joel Embiid will remain sidelined. The center hasn't played since Jan. 24 due to torn meniscus in his left knee. He wasn't with the team during Monday's shootaround, but is expected to arrive in Boston Monday night.
Saric (rest) and Luwawu-Cabarrot (right knee patellar tendinitis) had missed the first two preseason games. Fultz (right shoulder soreness) and McAdoo (left hamstring tightness) missed Friday's 110-102 home loss to the Celtics (2-0).
The Sixers will start Ben Simmons, Jerryd Bayless, Nik Stauskas, Dario Saric and Jahlil Okafor.
Celtics starters Kyrie Irving, Gordon Hayward, Al Horford and Marcus Morris will all sit out Monday's game.
