It’s opening night! The @PelicansNBA Starters tonight vs 76ers:— Jennifer Hale (@JenHale504) October 20, 2021
Brandon Ingram, Jonas Valanciunas, and even Devonte’ Graham, always felt like safe bets, but the other two spots have been up for grabs. No longer. Josh Hart and everyone’s favorite breakout pick for this season locally, Nickeil Alexander-Walker, will round out the group.
Zion Williamson (right foot surgery) is out, but Tomas Satoransky (GI illness), who was a game-time decision, is available.
The Sixers will start Joel Embiid, Seth Curry, Tobias Harris, Danny Green and Tyrese Maxey.
