Tonight at the Wells Fargo Center, the 76ers (2-9) will play the Toronto Raptors in what will be a battle of two Eastern Conference basement dwellers. The Sixers just announced that swingman Andre Iguodala (tendinitis right Achilles) will not play tonight. It will be the fourth game Iguodala has missed this season.
