The Philadelphia 76ers will have plenty to do as they prepare to face the Brooklyn Nets on Thursday at Barclays Center. They already knew Danny Green would be out and Shake Milton would be questionable due to health and safety protocols, but then found out that coach Doc Rivers would be out as well.
On top of that, two more Sixers will enter Protocols with Tyler Johnson and Myles Powell now entering Protocols and they will both be eliminated against the Nets. With Green out and Milton questionable, it would have been nice if the Sixers had Johnson to lean on their bench.
The Sixers’ Myles Powell and Tyler Johnson have entered Covid protocols and will be eliminated against Brooklyn tonight, a source told ESPN.

Philadelphia got good news on COVID when they found out Andre Drummond had cleared protocols and would return to the lineup on Thursday. He trained with the team on Wednesday, so despite the absence of Johnson and Powell, the Sixers can still field the eight players required for this game.
