Philadelphia 76ers hope for Tobias Harris to be ready for the game vs the Utah Jazz Wednesday. Harris missed the last three games of his team, due to a right knee contusion.

He was questionable for the game against Indiana on Monday, however the Sixers decided to play it safe and keep the veteran star out.

(via Sixerswire):

“I hope so,” said coach Doc Rivers on Harris’ potential to play Wednesday. “He really tried to play tonight, but we more made the call tonight. We need him, hopefully, we can get him back next game.”

Utah has the best record in the league for the first part of the season, so Philadelphia will need every ounce of its roster’s talent to prevail in Wells Fargo Center.

The Sixers will enter the last game before All-Star Break coming off a blowout win over the Pacers, after losing the game to the Cavs on Saturday.
