Andre Iguodala sat out Sixers' practice today with a right Achilles tendon injury and will not play tomorrow night at Oklahoma. It reamins unclear whether he will play Friday at Dallas.

Iguodala was sitting on the side, watching, for the portion of practice that the media is alowed to watch.

"I was a guy who tried to play with two broken feet and it ended my career," coach Doug Collins said. "He can come back when he's ready to go and feels good. There is a lot of wear and tear on his body from the summer. I am not going to rush him back."

Also, Jason Kapono missed practice for the second consecutive day for personal reasons. Collins said he is dealing with "family issues with our blessing." He will not play in Oklahoma City.

If neither player is available tomorrow, that means that rookie Craig Brackins could dress for a game for the first time this season. He has been inactive for every game thus far. 

For the Thunder, Jeff Green has a sprained ankle and is listed as day to day. Forward Nick Collison has a lower leg stress reaction and will not play.

The Thunder is 3-3 and 1-3 at home. Star Kevin Durant has scored 30 points or more in three of the six games.
