The Sacramento Kings (14-11) will play the Philadelphia 76ers on Tuesday in Philadelphia, PA (14-12). These two teams have yet to meet this season, but I expect a fight!

Tyrese Maxey (foot) appeared to be a limited participant in the 76ers’ Wednesday practice session, but head coach Doc Rivers later stated that the guard’s return date is unknown.
Maxey was able to run on Wednesday, according to Rivers, but the point guard isn’t jumping yet to avoid putting additional strain on the broken foot.
After leaving the 76ers’ Nov. 18 win over the Bucks, Maxey was diagnosed with a small fracture in his left foot, and ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski reported that the 22-year-old would need 3-to-4 weeks to recover.
Tyrese Maxey is now nearing the end of that timeline, but given his current state, he appears doomed to miss the entire four weeks, if not longer.
The Sacramento Kings were defeated by the New York Knicks 112-99. On the offensive end, they struggled, shooting 39.8% from the field. In this game, they’ll try to be more efficient.
According to Jason Anderson of The Sacramento Bee, De’Aaron Fox (foot) is questionable for Tuesday’s game against the 76ers.
Fox has missed the last two games due to a foot injury, but he returned to practice on Monday and appears to be on his way back. Davion Mitchell will make his third straight start if he remains out on Tuesday.
Alex Len (illness) has been ruled out of Tuesday’s game against Philadelphia.
