Hawes and Vucevic out again tonight

The Sixers will be without Spencer Hawes for the sixth straight game tonight when they face the Charlotte Bobcats at the Wells Fargo Center. Hawes is improving but is still sidelined with a left Achilles' strain.

His backup, rookie Nikola Vucevic, will miss his third-straight game with a quad strain. Coach Doug Collins said after the team's shootaround this morning that Vucevic is "still a ways away."

The Sixers will be looking to bounce back after Wednesday's overtime loss to the New Jersey Nets. Minority owner Will Smith is expected to be in the house as the Sixers look to improve on their 8-2 record at home.
