Mike Scott is back.
The 76ers reserve power forward will play Thursday night in Game 3 of the Eastern Conference semifinal series against the Toronto Raptors at the Wells Fargo Center. Scott had been listed as questionable at 5:30 p.m. Meanwhile, coach Brett Brown told the media at 6:15 p.m. that he would be a game-time decision.
However, Scott said, shortly afterward, that he would play during his pregame media availability. He had missed the first two games of the series with a heel contusion/plantar fasciitis in his right foot.
Meanwhile, backup center Greg Monroe (sprained left ankle) will also play.
Monroe suffered his injury in Monday’s 94-89 Game 2 victory. Scott missed the first two series games injuring his heel in Game 5 of the Sixers’ opening-round series against the Brooklyn Nets on April 23.
Both players participated in Wednesday’s light practice. Scott worked with teammate Boban Marjanovic and staff members following practice. This came one day after his first on-court workout since the closeout game against the Nets.
