The Philadelphia 76ers are entering the Windy City a little shorthanded as they will still be missing Ben Simmons as well as Tobias Harris, Isaiah Joe, and Matisse Thybulle for being in the league’s health and safety protocols.
Danny Green (hamstring) also won’t play.
The Sixers responded by recalling rookie Jaden Springer and two-way player Aaron Henry from the G League to join the team in Chicago. The two were set to play in the opener for the Delaware Blue Coats on Saturday, but they will instead be bodies for the Sixers.
Aaron Henry (transfer from @Blue_Coats) and Jaden Springer (recall) have both traveled to Chicago and will be available for the 76ers tonight.

The Sixers will be looking for a second consecutive win over the Bulls after coming away with a win on Wednesday over them at home. A big factor in that game was Thybulle’s defense, but they will have to rely on others to step up in his absence.
