    Andre Iguodala has a lingering right Achilles tendon issue that has kept him out of a couple of games and some practices lately. You can add Tuesday night’s Sixers/Cavaliers matchup to the list. He had to leave practice early because of soreness Monday and will now sit out Tuesday, according to the Associated Press. Andres…

  2. Andres Nocioni fined $25K for throwing mouthpiece

    Nov 11, 2010, 6:55 PM EDT

    Andres Nocioni,

    Frankly, this whole story is gross. Andres Nocioni, in frustration during the Sixers loss to the Thunder Wednesday night, threw his mouthpiece into the stands. Then apparently he wanted it back, and a Sixers employee had to go retrieve it, according to Liberty Ballers. Thursday the league announced a $25,000 fine for Nocioni for throwing…

  3. Sixers Lou Williams has separated shoulder, now day-to-day

    Nov 11, 2010, 3:48 PM EDT

    Louis Williams,  Hilton Armstrong

    Lou Williams has been the Sixers scoring spark off the bench, giving the Sixers 16.4 points per game with a true shooting percentage of 56.4 and a PER of 20. He has filled the role very well. But he has had a setback now, a dislocated AC joint shoulder that has him listed as day-to-day,…

  4. Report: Hornets looking at trades, even called about Iguodala

    Nov 10, 2010, 3:47 PM EDT

    While we’re all marveling at the transformation we see in New Orleans, let’s not pretend that they are testing the Lakers — or likely even the Spurs or Mavericks — come the playoffs. The Hornets are much better, but not elite or really on that next tier yet. The Hornets front office gets that, too.…

    Andre Iguodala’s 252-game starting streak is in jepoardy. Iguodala strained his right Achilles tendon during the first half of the Sixers loss to the Cavaliers Friday night and did not play in the second half. After the game coach Doug Collins said that the injury was not serious. However, Iguodala’s status for Sunday at the…

  6. Sixers coach Doug Collins does not coach second half due to vertigo

    UPDATE Nov. 4, 8:01 am: Collins explained what happened to the Philadelphia Daily News after the game: “I had another one of those bouts that I had the other day,” said Collins, who spent the second half lying on the trainer’s table in the locker room. “I can’t take my medicine on days of games…

  7. Game of the Night: John Wall vs. Evan Turner turns out to be about Andray Blatche

    Nov 3, 2010, 3:43 AM EDT

    Wall_celebrates

    We tuned in to see John Wall matched up on Evan Turner — and we got a little of that late in the game. But it ended up being about a lot more. It ended up being about Andray Blatche finding the guy from the end of last season. It ended up being about whether…

  8. Challenge in Philadelphia: learning how to win

    Oct 31, 2010, 2:29 PM EDT

    DCollins_Sixers

    Interesting note today from Kate Fagan at Philly.com on this year’s 0-3 Philadelphia 76ers. Sixers coach Doug Collins offered this statistic after the game (which he said he shared with his team as well): No player on the Sixers roster has a winning record as a professional. That actually struck me as quite amazing. Obviously…

  9. Report: Andre Iguodala wants winning or a trade out of Philadelphia

    Oct 30, 2010, 10:46 AM EDT

    AIguodala_dunk

    Philadelphia has been unimpressive so far this season, two losses and generally looking pretty blah. You’ve got new head coach Doug Collins saying, “there’s more work to be done here than I thought.” Fans are down o the team. It’s not good. After spending the summer with USA Basketball, Andre Iguodala is not down with…

  10. Sixers coach Doug Collins to miss game with concussion symptoms

    Plenty of talk about concussions in sports these days, particularly in Philadelphia. Although not really so much in the NBA. And not with coaches. But we have our first in that department now — Philadelphia’s Doug Collins will not coach tonight’s Sixers preseason game as he stays home to rest concussion symptoms, a recurrence of…

  11. Jrue Holliday with the rare preseason triple-double

    Oct 14, 2010, 12:25 PM EDT

    jholliday

    The Sixers may be struggling to find an identity this preseason, but Jrue Holliday seemed comfortable against the Raptors. Holiday put up the rare preseason triple-double — 18 points, 12 assists and 11 rebounds. He was aggressive and attacking, and had just two turnovers. Yes, he played 46 minutes of a double-overtime game (Toronto won…

  12. Marreese Speights strains hamstring

    Oct 14, 2010, 8:23 AM EDT

    Philadelphia 76ers v New Jersey Nets

    Just what the Sixers needed — another big man down. Marreese Speights left the team’s preseason game against the Raptors in the third quarter with what has been termed a strained hamstring, according to Philly.com’s Kate Fagan. Speights was trying to save a ball from going out of bounds when he stepped awkwardly. He instantly…

  13. Sixers Evan Turner to come off the bench

    Oct 5, 2010, 12:41 PM EDT

    He’s the No. 2 overall pick from the last draft, and he is now the No. 2 shooting guard on his own team. After looking at a variety of options — including the bad idea of Evan Turner the point guard — Philly coach Doug Collins has decided to bring Turner off the bench, according…

  14. Elton Brand drops weight, back to his old Clipper size

    Sep 27, 2010, 5:09 PM EDT

    Elton Brand the Sixer did not look like Elton Brand the Clipper. After the Achilles injury he looked slower — in part because of the injury and in part because he was heavier. New coach Doug Collins noticed that, and challenged Brand to get back to his official listed weight of 254. He did, minus…

  15. Denver, Philadelphia talking Carmelo Anthony, Andre Iguodala trade

    Sep 26, 2010, 8:04 PM EDT

    UPDATE 8:04 pm: The Daily News is now reporting that Anthony’s people said he would not sign an extension in Philly. Which would make any other negotiations moot. Basically, Melo’s people trying to keep the Knicks and Bulls in play, the Nuggets keep looking for the best deal with little interest in making Melo happy.…

  16. Doug Collins says Jrue Holiday will be one of top 5 point guards

    Sep 23, 2010, 9:30 PM EDT

    Hey, Jrue. No pressure. Talking with the media today, new Philadelphia 76ers coach Doug Collins spoke with more bombast than he ever did as a color analyst. Here are the tweets from our own Adam Levitan or Rotoworld who was there. Doug Collins says he thinks jrue holiday will be a top-5 pg in nba…

  17. New Orleans, Philadelphia trade some bench players

    Sep 23, 2010, 11:02 AM EDT

    We have a trade! Not the one everyone has been talking about and speculating on for the past few days. But a trade nonetheless. Yahoo’s Adrian Wojnarowski broke the news with a tweet. New Orleans has traded Darius Songalia and Craig Brackins to Philly for Willie Green and Jason Smith, league source tells Y! This…

  18. Sixers deny any serious Carmelo Anthony talks

    Sep 17, 2010, 9:09 AM EDT

    Yesterday we told you about rumors of a complex, still-in-discussions trade involving the Nets, Sixers and Nuggets in an effort to grant Carmelo Anthony a one-way ticket out of Denver. Except the Sixers say they are not playing that game. The original report came from the Ken Berger at CBSSports, but the Philadelphia Inquirer asked…

  19. Doug Collins' novel idea: Get Andre Iguodala to attack the rim

    Sep 16, 2010, 12:15 PM EDT

    Last season, Andre Iguodala took as many three-point shots a game (3.7 on average) as he did shots at the rim (3.9). The Princeton offense had him floating around on the perimeter and creating a lot of his own shots. Anyone who watched Team USA this summer knows that when he attacks the rim, Iggy…

  20. Report: Warriors may go with Rodney Carney as backup

    Sep 2, 2010, 3:26 PM EDT

    As it is the “guys who fill out the end of the bench” signings time of the year, we have one report for you. Rodney Carney is talking to and nearing contract with the Golden State Warriors, according to a tweet from NBA.com’s Scott Howard Cooper. Carney was in Philadelphia last season playing 12 minutes…

  21. Andres Nocioni will sit out World Championships

    Aug 26, 2010, 12:03 PM EDT

    Andres Nocioni was expected to be a cornerstone for Argentina, one of the world basketball powers, at the World Championships in Turkey. But he sprained his ankle on July 31, and after an MRI this week it has been decided he will sit out the tournament to rest it more, the Philadelphia Daily News reports.…

  22. Evan Turner blames conditioning for getting his butt kicked in Summer League

    Aug 2, 2010, 12:35 PM EDT

    Evan Turner got his butt kicked. And in an interview with the Philadelphia Inquirer, he admitted it — Summer League was not good to him. “I’ve been playing pretty much every day against good competition,” Turner said. “It was really an eye-opener for me to get my butt kicked, but it was also a good…

  23. Sixers may have tipped their hand about drafting Evan Turner

    Jun 19, 2010, 9:00 AM EDT

    Evan Turner is widely considered the No.2 overall prospect in Thursday’s draft. The Sixers have several needs, but Turner is such a dynamic talent, the national player of the year, that he outweighs other needs they may have. Their recent trade of Samuel Dalembert for Andres Nocioni and Spencer Hawes does leave open the possibility…
