Brand Back In Lineup

With Jrue Holiday out, Elton Brand is back in the 76ers' lineup tonight.

Brand Back In Lineup


Elton Brand wasn't happy about coming off the 76ers' bench. He's happier now, back in the starting lineup tonight against the Charlotte Bobcats.

Wikth rookie guard Jrue Holiday out with a strained right rotator cuff suffered in Friday's practice, coach Eddie Jordan reconfigured his lineup this way: Willie Green and Andre Iguodala at the guards, Samuel Dalembert at center and Elton Brand and T haddeus Young at the forwards.

That means Green is the nominal point guard, Young is the small forward and Brand the power forward.

Allen Iverson will join the team Sunday for his first practice and will make his debut  Monday against the Denver Nuggets in the Wachovia Center.
