Thaddeus Young will miss tomorrow night's game against New Jersey with a broken right thumb. No timetable has been set for his return, the Sixers said.

Young cracked the nail on his right thumb in the first quarter last night against New York, but returned and started the second half. He reopened the wound early in the third quarter, leaving a trail of blood which caused about a 5-minute delay. He returned again in the fourth quarter with the thumb heavily bandaged.

Marreese Speights also will miss the game against New Jersey with a right knee sprain. Speights hurt the knee on March 7 in Toronto and has missed the five games since. He was lifting weights before last night's game but is still experiencing soreness in the knee.

Lou Williams is listed as a game-time decision with low back pain. He did not play last night against the Knicks.

Shakur, 25, has been playing for the Phillips 66ers in the NBA Development Leaguer, where was averaging 20.7 points and 7.2 assists.

The 6-3 Shakur, who grew up in Wynnewood, has played professionally in Poland, Spain and Greece.
