The Philadelphia 76ers have been hit hard with the health and safety protocols recently as they have lost guys like Joel Embiid, Tobias Harris, and Matisse Thybulle to the protocols. It has been a tough time trying to win games without those three as the Sixers have dropped the previous two games.
Harris has missed the last six games after he tested positive for COVID-19, but after coach Doc Rivers hinted that he could be close to a return, Harris has been upgraded for Thursday’s matchup with the Toronto Raptors.
Harris has officially been upgraded to questionable which obviously does not guarantee that he plays, but it’s better than being listed as out. If the Sixers can get him back out on the floor, it would be a huge help for Philadelphia to get one of their main guys back.

Harris was averaging 19.8 points, 9.0 rebounds, and 4.2 assists while shooting 54.3% to begin the season. The Sixers have missed his production in the worst way as they have not been able to find a guy to replace that out on the perimeter.
