The Sixers Will Be Without Jrue Holiday Tonight in Indianapolis

Dec 14, 2012, 3:37 PM EDT

The Sixers will have their hands full this evening when they’ll play their first game of the season without their star point guard, Jrue Holiday, who is sidelined with a sprained foot. On the bright side, we’ll get the enjoyment of seeing Nick Young’s minutes go up and Evan Turner run the point.

Here’s what Coach Collins told reporters today about the loss of Jrue:

“I am hoping it is nothing long-term,” Collins said after the morning
shootaround. “Jrue is way too valuable to us. I have found too often
that if a guy is out there and he is not 100 percent, he starts running
differently and then all the sudden he has back spasms or rolls another
ankle so we are going to be very cautious with him.”
