Al Jefferson vs. Nerlens Noel: Jefferson gets guarded by a rookie; he should be revving up for a big night.
• For the second draft in a row, the Sixers used a high pick on an injured big man. Joel Embiid is out with a right foot injury.
• The Sixers are big in the backcourt, which could be trouble for what is a small Hornets roster.
• Hornets shooting guard Lance Stephenson suffered a sprained pelvic in Wednesday’s loss to the Phoenix Suns. He didn’t practice Friday and is highly doubtful to play against the 76ers Friday and Utah Jazz Saturday.
• Ex-Bobcat Jason Richardson is out for the 76ers with a knee injury.
