Brooklyn Nets will face the Philadelphia 76ers without seven players including Kevin Durant, James Harden, Blake Griffin and LaMarcus Aldridge.

Kyrie Irving is not in the injury report, according to Marc Stein, and the Nets are expected to insert him back in the lineup for the Eastern Conference showdown.

Kyrie missed Tuesday’s contest vs. the Minnesota Timberwolves due to personal reasons. LaMarcus Aldridge is still sidelined with a non-COVID related illness.

Wednesday’s contest will decide the regular season series between the Nets and the Sixers. Both teams are sharing the top of the East with a 37-17 record.
