Little by little, the Sixers are regaining the mojo they had early in this season when they started 8-2.
They have won three in a row and their roster is starting to stabilize after injuries and and COVID took their toll.
And they got a player back from the protocols at last night’s practice, Danny Green.
The veteran guard entered the protocols on Dec. 21 and he missed four games in a row due to COVID.
“I feel pretty good,” said Green. “It feels good to be back. I’ll let you know when I actually get into a game-type of atmosphere, I’m sure it’ll be a little different once I get up and down out there, but today it felt good to practice. Yesterday, I got some workouts in, and hopefully, tomorrow, we get a good rhythm and sync, and hopefully, I haven’t lost any steps.”
Green’s 3-point shooting is at 37.4% and he makes the game easier for Joel Embiid down low. While he was out, he did not experience too many symptoms, so he feels ready to go.
“Nothing major,” Green explained. “Very little, slight, but I was good for the most part.”
“Hamstring’s been fine,” he finished. “The hamstring’s been good. I think the biggest thing right now is rhythm, wind, condition, and making sure everything’s good for when—as of right now—we don’t know who’s in tomorrow. Every day there’s some testing that happens so I gotta be prepared to play some minutes.”
