As the Philadelphia 76ers finish up their current three-game road trip on Saturday when they take on the Indiana Pacers on the second night of a back-to-back, they will look to extend their winning streak while missing some key players.

Star guard James Harden and veteran PJ Tucker are out for the matchup with the Pacers. Harden is out due to injury management considering that it is the second night of a back-to-back and Tucker is out due to ankle soreness. The Sixers added Tucker to the injury report earlier on Saturday.

As for Jalen McDaniels, he is going to be a game-time decision. He has missed two games in a row with a right hip contusion.

It makes sense for Harden and Tucker to be out for this one. When considering the schedule and how often the Sixers have had to travel and the number of games that have been thrown at them as of late, this would be a night to rest some players.

Tipoff with the Pacers is set for 7 p.m. EDT from Gainbridge Fieldhouse.
