Tobias Harris is listed as questionable for the Sixers’ game tonight at the Wells against the Toronto Raptors.
Harris has been vaccinated and has been in the NBA’s COVID-19 health and safety protocols after originally testing positive 40 minutes before the Nov. 1 game against the Portland Trail Blazers.
A vaccinated player can typically return after a 10-day quarantine or following two negative tests 24 hours apart. Tonight will mark the 10th day after Harris received his initial positive rapid test. There was a thought he could remain out longer because he experienced fatigue and congestion during the first four days of his infection.
Harris has been sidelined for the last six games. The Sixers (8-4) won the first four before Joel Embiid also entered the health and safety protocols. They lost to the New York Knicks on Monday and the Milwaukee Bucks on Tuesday.
