Neither Jahlil Okafor nor Robert Covington travelled to Cleveland for tonight’s game against the Cavaliers.

They won’t be on the court for the 76ers’ following six games, either.

Okafor is out for the year. So is Joel Embiid. Nerlens Noel is in Dallas.

The 76ers have finally cleared their center logjam.

It’s Richaun Holmes time.

Really, keep an eye on Holmes. The 23-year-old looks like a rotation player, even as Philadelphia goes from tanking to winning in coming years.

In the meantime, watch Dario Sarc, who has even more clearance to rack up numbers in his late Rookie of the Year push.
