SIXERS BIGS OUT AGAIN TONIGHT AGAINST THE HEAT

By Annie Ross

The Sixers will be without their bigs for another game.

Nerlens Noel (right knee) and Jahlil Okafor (right shin contusion) will miss their second and fourth consecutive games, respectively tonight at Miami.

Nik Stauskas and Kendall Marshall also missed the trip because of upper-respiratory infections and will not play Sunday.

Playing with just 10 active players on the roster Friday, the Sixers fell behind early against the Heat before storming back and taking the lead in the third quarter. But the lack of depth bit them late in the game, as the Heat pulled away for a 112-102 victory at the Wells Fargo Center.

The Sixers have lost 11 straight games. They’ve also dropped their last four meetings with the Heat, including both match-ups this season.
