Keith Bogans, who's had a sore back, will be out vs. the Sixers and Joe Johnson will be a game-time decision. P.J. Carlesimo has said getting Johnson healthy and ready for the playoffs is the team's top priority. The rest of the 15-man roster is available. If Johnson doesn't play, it would likely mean more time for MarShon Brooks and C.J. Watson.
“I think it’s a good chance I will play, but I don’t know, I can’t read their minds,” said Johnson. “So we’ll have to see when I get to the arena tonight.”
The Sixers are likely to have as full a complement of players as normal, with Nick Young back but Andrew Bynum and Jason Richardson, their big prizes in the Dwight Howard trade out.
