Buddy Hield has been ruled out for Friday's game against the Hawks.
Hield was traded from the Pacers on Thursday. He should hold a big role alongside Tyrese Maxey when he makes his debut with the 76ers, but they'll be a little short-handed on Friday.
The Indiana Pacers have traded Buddy Hield to the 76ers for Marcus Morris, Furkan Korkmaz and three second-round picks.
The 76ers are expected to be down Joel Embiid (meniscus) for potentially the rest of the regular season. They add to the back court here with Hield who was averaging 12 points in Indiana on 38 percent shooting from deep. He'll add some scoring whether he enters the starting lineup or comes off the bench in a sixth-man role for the 76ers.
